Reviewed by Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer - March 2, 2015

Likes: This is very well made. With rip-stop as an extra measure of security and the ability to spread this like a small tarp, this comes with me on almost any adventure. Some minimalist may not like the weight and would settle for a paper thin poncho, but durability and functionality are before weight for a poncho, in my opinion. The green color is great too.

Dislikes: Nothing. It's a great poncho.

Reviewed by Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer - August 14, 2013

Likes: Solid construction, has held up really well. Most ponchos I've had have been too flimsy and the hoods rip. This one is sturdy. It's a little large on me (5'4" but overweight), but I've been able to use it over a small backpack. Still packs down to a decent size.

Dislikes: It's a little heavy, so not for the once-counters.

Likes: Great poncho. Solid construction. Good fit and color. Holds up well in terrible conditions.

Dislikes: Heavy (but that's the trade off for solid).

Likes: Nice ripstop fabric.
At 13 ounces, this poncho is good to carry as rain insurance when no rain or only light rains are expected. I have used it successfully around town & on the trail to avoid getting my core body drenched. It's multi-purposed: For example, it's big enough to double in camp as a tent footprint for my medium-sized one-woman tent; or to cover gear left outside my tent at night.
As for length: I am 5"2" & the poncho comes within a foot or so off the ground when worn with a stuffed 40 L day pack. It's shorter when worn with a full-sized backpack. I did not get the over-the-pack model because a similar design proved to be too long & required use of a belt to avoid tripping.

Dislikes: The hood was way too big for me: I need to wear the poncho with a brimmed hat such as a baseball cap to have full visibility & coverage. Tie-downs would be a nice add-on to pitch as a "gear garage."
For backpackers: if you strap a bunch of gear [sleeping pad, tent, etc.) to the outside of your pack, the poncho will shorten up in the back & you will get wet legs & sox unless you war it with rain paints. But we knew this was not a full coverage product anyway! It's an optimist's raincoat.
