My cheap US-army style poncho has ripped and so I'm after a new poncho and want something other than those ghastly british army 58 pattern ones.
I hear the US army poncho is amazingly big and durable for it's pack size and weight.
I've heard the dutch army poncho is very good.
I've heard the German army rubberized poncho is also very good.
I really like the sound of the US poncho and was wondering where to get a genuine one in the UK because most if not all the places I've seen clearly state they are US army style, so in other words not the genuine article. Am I right in thinking the black and olive ones are not genuine and the real deal only come in woodland camoflauge?
What do the dutch and german poncho's weigh?
Does the snugpak poncho stand up to abuse, is it well made or one of those ultra-thin jobbies for civilian use? Does it have brass eyelets like the army issue ponchos? Is the DD poncho any good, too?
