Poncho, Military Surplus


Military surplus, durable, rubber-coated poncho.



On the trail at BOSS, your poncho is a raincoat, ground cloth, tent, windbreaker, bivvy sack, water collector, blanket pack protector, etc.—an excellent all-around item and an important one to select carefully.

These medium-weight, rubber-coated ponchos have a seam-sealed hood and drawstring closure to keep water from running down your shirt when it gets stormy. Eight heavy-duty stud snaps along both sides make it functional as a bivvy sack or to join it with another poncho for a two-person shelter. Reinforced edges with heavy-duty grommets at each corner and one in the center of each side allow you to tie it down as a tarp or suspend it as a fly. These are the real deal—military surplus, not newly manufactured, and so imperfections from normal wear and tear are to be expected.

Please note that we also rent these ponchos for courses as well.

We also strongly urge you to consider investing in your own quality poncho that meets the above-listed specs. Military surplus shops may have items but not list them online, so we encourage you to visit your closest shop to find your very own. Search for a rubberized “German” Poncho with grommets, stud snaps, reinforced seams, and a hood.
