    USGI poncho

    Military poncho is 50"X80". Basically that is 4'X6' or 24sqft. Basically you get .6gal of water from every 1" of rain per sqft. So .15gal from 1/4 inch of rain. Times 24 equals 3.6 gallons.

    I carry various sizes of freezer bags with my gear. Makes good over flow storage for when you get extra water. Also good for foraging for food.

    Those are good for lots of other things as well. You can make a field expedient shelter. Add a insulated liner and they can keep you warm. I have heard of some people stringing them up as a hammock.
