    Nice article on rain ponchos and alternative uses. A great piece of gear for your car, ghb, bob . Do you have a preference as to which one and why? Other uses?

    Grab a free version of AD Aware it works pretty good for this site.

    That free software has blocked 1484K ads from here so far for me.

    I use a SnugPak Patrol Poncho.
    It works very well.

    I like having a military grade material that can cover my pack as well as have a liner added.

    I made my poncho out of a medium dark gray 5x8' with 8 tie out points to set up as a tent, snaps on all four sides sequenced to function as a proper poncho as well as a bivy.

    The suspended visqueen with a rock in the center over a bucket to collect condensation is not new to me.

    I've seen that Norwegian poncho around the interweb, it looks like some kind of alien tadpole.
    I'll be done when I'm finished, if that's not fast enough, take a number please.
