Improved Military Poncho Gen 2- MILSPEC Version- Made in USA!

Improved Military Poncho Gen 2- MILSPEC Version- Made in USA!

We set out to build the worlds best poncho- and we did. Nobody else sells this, it is our exclusive item. You will not find a better constructed, better designed or more rugged poncho anywhere in the world- period.

We had been selling a really nice poncho from an American maker, and when they quit we decided that it was time to take matters into our own hands make the best poncho ever.

So, we did. This poncho is made to the size specs of the US type II poncho at 60″x82″ from a rugged 70 denier ripstop nylon with a waterproof coating. The material is MILSPEC material that meets all specs including for night visions/IR visibility.

We used brass spur grommets instead of the weaker washer grommets found on a MILSPEC unit. They grip harder and are less likely to ever come loose.
