Poncho Survival Shelter Super UL 1.1 30 silnylonN E W - Reintroducing our Super UL (Ultra Lite) line after two years unavailable. The material for this poncho is woven from the finest high tenacity nylon 6.6 yarns, this means super high strength at very low weights, double silicone impregnated for superior water proofing and added strength. Our 1.1 30 fabric has yarns 50% thicker than comparable fabrics, making each yarn stronger at the same weight as others. We are also upgrading the poncho itself from our prior version as follows - circular reinforcing collar reduces stress points, high quality plastic snaps are more compact, nearly unbreakable and lower profile than the metal ones, shorter tie outs mean less to catch on, a slightly more trim hood with dyneema drawstring, NOTE plastic snaps on this poncho do not interface with the metal snaps on our accessories. Same cordage options as our other ponchos. Weight 12 oz. USA
