GERMAN WATERPROOF PONCHO / SHELTER HALF

The big one. The poncho. Weighing in at two-and-one-quarter pounds, it is a hearty helping of rubberized German goodness. And to make a good poncho even better — it is fully compatible with the USGI “woobie” liner dearly loved by many. You can probably thank NATO for that one.

But it's not just a poncho. Hand ‘em out to your buddies when it gets wet out, and you can enjoy team-building shelter assembly together. Just add your favorite German marching song.

Specs

  • Waterproof rubberized fabric
  • Drawstring hood
  • Taped seams
  • Side snaps in reinforced strip, unsnaps to form a 160 x 220 cm (5.25' x 7.2') tarp
  • German flag markings are luck of the draw

      The Last Poncho

      Don't really mind the rain, but when I'm kitted up, yeah, going through my magazine springs to check for rust, not going to do that, too ocd for that. Usually a trash bag rain poncho type of guy, but since I've been getting into overlanding, I wanted something more durable/reusable.

      This German poncho ticks all the boxes. Well made, sturdy and doubles as a canopy for me. I keep it in my car with some paracord and it will serve a myriad purposes for me. I don't feel like I need to baby it. Yeah, there are some stains, but who's trying to be styling in the rain. It does its job and it does it well, I mean I've been to local surplus shops and they want similar money for new military ponchos, but they don't seem as versatile as this one. Zee Germans make high quality stuff.

      German Poncho

      The poncho itself is well built like most German infantry equipment and pretty comfy. Its still easy to reach anything underneath and the hood (something I'm a stickler about) is very nice. The poncho looks good except for some markings around the belt and neck this is mostly some brown stains all around the area except for where a belt would be. I cant speak to its use as a shelter half but, it will sure as hell keep you dry.

      Great but minor cosmetic damage

      Arrived with that fantastic mil-surp smell. No damage that would impact function, buttons all worked and felt secure, no damage to seams, sealant, or body. The flags on each shoulder showed a bit of age.
