The Poncho: practical and versatile

The understated Poncho is an ideal choice to carry on your adventures whether hiking, camping, fishing or braving a music festival.

I favour the Highlander Adventure Hooded Poncho it’s extremely versatile, simply pull it out of your pack and protect yourself against heavy rain. It’s a tough, lightweight, waterproof poncho that can be used again and again.                                                                                          

Not only is it a poncho but also doubles up as an emergency shelter. With its built in eyelets, it can be pegged down or fixed between trees to provide a short term shelter.

Being loose-fitting it offers good ventilation; which is important when you’re exploring hot-humid, rainy climates.       

On cold and wet days it keeps you dry and allows you to sit on a damp log without getting your bum wet!
