Description

Enjoy a light summer rain without getting soaked.

The Storm Poncho from Sierra Designs keeps you covered when the rains come. Pull this poncho out of its zippered storage bag, throw it over you and your pack, and keep the rain off. The adjustable hood lets you get a perfect fit even if you are wearing a helmet, and the fully taped seams, snap-up sides, and DWR coating encourage the rain drops to slide right off. Use the corner grommets to stake your poncho down for a lightweight shelter when you stop for a lunch break.

Double Use !

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

I use this as both a Poncho and a Tent Footprint. The large is pretty much the same size as a Big Agnes Fly Creek UL2 footprint. I snagged the tent for $100 without the footprint. I'm not about to pay $60 for one! With this Poncho on sale for less than $20 I get a footprint and poncho @10 oz. While the UL2 footprint is 5oz. it is way overpriced and more flimsy. SD makes great stuff ! I wanted it to go over a pack, so the only concern is whether it drags on the ground when you use it as a poncho....

L/XL was enormous.

I just received my order, and the L/XL was huge on me. I'm about 6'0, 160lbs and I felt like I was navigating a parachute. While it has potential for use as an emergency tarp/shelter (and if I recall correctly, design elements of this), the L/XL was almost un-wearably big for a guy my size.

What are the dimensions of the L/XL poncho, length & width? I want to buy one for my son to wear, and he wears a 2x or 3x in men's sizes. He's 6'2" and 250+ lbs....

Great for fishing trips

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Unless the day is cold to start, this is my low volume rain jacket on flyfishing trips up in the mountains. Takes up next to no room in a vest or pack, but gives good coverage when you get caught in a sudden thunderstorm along the stream. Covers well over a vest or small hydration pack, and the hood is large enough to go over whatever hat I'm wearing with just a bit of brim sticking out. If the wind is really blowing, I'll wrap my wader belt around the waist on top to keep it from billowing and catching on tree limbs. I recharge it with a tech wash and spray on treatment once a year before the season and it sheds water like new.

Could I wear this poncho with backpack that has capacity over 50ℓ?

Responded on

It would look funny and you would lose leg coverage. There are ponchos designed by other companies that will cover you and a pack without issue.

How big would the s/m be on a 5'6", 125lb woman?

Responded on

It's a poncho, so pretty big, but that's how it's supposed to fit. Over you and your backpack.

Want to buy this to work outside in, will it get in the way? I will be doing grounds/greenskeeper maintanance, I want something a little better than a cheap plastic emergency coat.

Best Answer Responded on

Deb - it depends on your duties. This will be longer and more bulky than a standard jacket because it is not fitted.

Clint Eastwood in The Eiger Sanction 2?

I ride cross country on my horses and I often need to put my poncho on while moving along the trail. It is nice to leave my helmet on while pulling my poncho over me.

so rain doesn't get on your neck, chinstrap or inside your collar.

We wear these ponchos with helmets! My husband and I ride enduro dirt bikes (motorized, not those with pedals), and these ponchos are great to cover the entire riding gear such as helmets, body armour, hydration packs with stuff in them, and the critical part of the bike where electrical stuff is. Storms here in AZ are short but very intense. Just pull over for 15 minutes, cover yourself up, and let it blow by.
These ponchos are the solution. One more thing: if you are tall, buy Large so you can cover tops of your motocross boots to keep water from leaking off the poncho down into the boots.
