Customer Comments –

-> This HD poncho is made perfect! I cannot think of a better multi use peace of fabric to bring to the outdoors! It is the toughest poncho I have ever seen and is truly a multi use item! Craftsmanship is top notch! Quality is awesome! This seriously is THE poncho to get! -André in Norway-

-> “I have the HD in plain black and I can vouch for it being a very tough workhorse. Actually sat outside in a downpour and stayed dry as a bone. Thanks Perry for the great poncho that hangs nice as a hammock as well. Cheers from Nova Scotia, Canada. Mike.

– > “Got my PSSXL HD in Atacs FG with liner last week and am loving it! Feels like you could sled down a rock face with it and it would be fine.. Its a bulky beast for sure but ill be taking it on every backpacking trip from here on out!

I tested waterproofing in shower for 10 mins and even where its stitched it was bone dry.. it’s nice to see an American-made product that doesn’t cut any corners made by US citizens! You definitely get what you pay for at Wilderness Innovations.”  – Aaron G
