AUSTRIAN OLIVE DRAB NYLON PONCHO

Austria really loves copying US equipment, and this rain poncho is no exception. As far as we can tell this is a direct copy of a US Vietnam-war issue poncho. And it really does look the part, all that's missing is a bit of mud and a crusty spec ops guy smoking a big ol stogie in the rain. 

 

Condition

The Austrian ponchos are from issued stock that has seen use and exposure to the elements. We've sorted out anything with cuts or tears. However, some ponchos may have small holes or wear marks on their periphery (from branches etc.) Note that the seam tape on some ponchos is deteriorating due to age, but this should not cause too much degradation in performance.

Good Fit and Durable, Needs Waterproofing

Looks great, fits great, super durable, lightweight. Great for stowing in a pack for heading innawoods. However, as received, the interior waterproof membrane of the nylon is a bit aged it could not stand up to any rain harder than a light shower. During a regular outing I rapidly found that I was wearing a wet tarp in a downpour. Picked up some nylon sail waterproofing and liberally doused the sucker. Works great now, with periodic reapplication.

Yeah they're definitely aging. Good plan with the sail waterproofing.

Sturdy and very waterproof

Fits well, but hood isn’t exceptionally roomy. Snug fit allows it to form to your head better though.

I love this thing

Mine came with some minor damage. A few small holes here and there but nothing really notable. Also was missing the hood cinch cord but was an easy fix with some paracord. Most of the button snaps are damaged and won't snap, but I still absolutely love this thing. You know it's seen some shit.
