    Poncho

    I'm seeking a good light weight rain proof poncho that's large enough for a single sleeping system. Amazon has tons of garbage out there.

    I'm open to any group suggestions.

    Budget? I'm a big fan of the Velocity Systems Basha. Wild Things Tactical also has a waterproof poncho. Neither are cheap though.

    I'd like to find a solid piece of gear and worry about price later. I'll adjust finances to afford it, if it's good enough.

    I picked up a new with tag multicam poncho on ebay about a year ago for about $50.

    For a straight up USGI poncho, it's hard to beat the ones made by Old Grouch (oldgrouch.biz). He noticed the same thing you did, and ultimately contracted a US manufacturer to make ponchos for him using the original spec. I have a woodland one as part of my EDC, but he has multicam ones as well, now.

    The velocity systems Basha is also on my radar, but it's more of a Brit style tarp with a hood on one corner.

    Have you looked in to silicone impregnated nylon ponchos? Usually half the weight of coated rip stop and no delamination problems. I have an old Golite model but there are loads of companies making them from larger outfits to 1 man shops.

    I just ordered one of these. Looks like it might fill the bill.

    I'm a fan of the Wiggy's poncho and poncho liners. They have a hooded poncho liner that you can wear under the poncho like a coat.

    Also, there's the Hill People Gear Mountain Serape. Overkill if you're just looking for water protection but a versatile unit. http://www.hillpeoplegear.com/Produc...9/Default.aspx

    I am a huge fan of Bushcraft USA products, I went with a tarp as it was a little larger and just a couple dollars more than a poncho. I use it as a shelter as opposed to a rain garment.

    In chaos, there is hope!
