This is the one issue item (besides his weapon) a soldier would not be caught without. Reenactments take place in varying weather conditions including rain, snow, and cold windy marches. Getting your uniform wet on a Friday night can make the whole rest of the weekend miserable. This one versatile item can make all the difference. Our Ponchos are light weight yet durable. They are properly made of 100% cotton canvas with vulcanized black rubber coating, and all edges and neck are reinforced, and brass grommets are set with reinforcements. 6′ x 42″..$37.50
Beware of cheap copies!
We have seen others ponchos manufactured from cheap yard goods
which have canvas separating from the rubber after very little use.
And some are being made with synthetic liners.
THE VERSATILITY of a PONCHO
Wear it to keep dry, warm, and to block the wind. In snow conditions it can be worn inside out for camouflage.
Place it on the ground to sit or lay on. and the dirt and moisture will not soak into your uniform.
Put it over the end of your shelter as a door.
Wrap your spare clothes in it to keep the dew and dampness out.
With a little string it can be tied to a tree for a makeshift shelter.

In just a few hours, working outside, or in a well ventilated room. you can totally glue your own poncho together. The only sewing is 1 button at the neck – and that is optional.

If you are making a poncho, or repairing one, we have found that 3M Black Automotive Weather Stripping glue works best (It is sold a auto repair shops for putting the black rubber stuff in place around your car windows.) It stays flexible, and does not show up badly if you are a little messy.
GROUND CLOTH KIT – Just like Poncho Kit (see above) but no neck hole pieces or button. $27.50
