Comments about U.S. Poncho - Surplus:

the size overall is great so is the camo print, the 2 downsides i encountered were too small of a hood opening(some minor surgery with the multi tool shood fix that) the other is while the snaps are metal they feel too strong, as though they would rip out befor they release, might just be mine, excelent poncho for a teenager, gave mine to my son and it fits him perfect!

Comments about U.S. Poncho - Surplus:

Unlike many conventional rain ponchos, this one has enough extra room that it covers all of my gear (in my case: my maxpedition sitka, which I use as a gadget bag).

The conventional/cheaper ones tend to unsnap and barely cover me if I put them on over my gadget bag. But between the size of this one, and the nice firm snaps (not flimsy plastic snaps), it does a great job of protecting me from the elements.

The one downside: I don't know if I just have a big head, but getting my head into the hood was a tight fit. Pulling the hood down/back to let my head be exposed was completely impossible. That's the one downside I've encountered.
