I had an Outdoor Product backpacker long poncho which served me well until I used it to wrap some Elk backstrap for the hike out. Now I'm looking for a replacement. I don't want a "water-resistant" poncho - must be water-proof. When I put a poncho on it is because the weather is downright nasty and I don't want to get wet.
I had a bad experience with the Ponco's that REI sells (Outdoor Research?) - they'll soak you. And of course REI continues to sell them even though they suck.
What do you folks recommend? Should I just pull the trigger and order another Outdoor Products poncho from Campmor? (17oz, 52x118).
