This won’t take long. The poncho we recieved appeared to be cheaply made, thin and fragile – albeit waterproof. If it makes it over your head without becoming defective, it seems likely to do so while you’re taking it off – making it good for one time use hopefully, but maybe not, but maybe.
We put this one in the same category as most $3-$4 ’emergency’ ponchos. Its not something we would rely on to serve its purpose.
While we have tested other ponchos that are infact not waterproof, or even water resistant, it still seems unlikely to us that this poncho would satisfy the needs of the least discriminating user, even in an emergency. Just our opinion.
