In many parts of the country, summer weather is unpredictable. It can be beautiful one minute, right before a torrential rainstorm hits. Then you need to quickly seek shelter, or find another way to protect yourself from the elements.
This is also something to be aware of if you are hiking or camping, which is why a lightweight portable rain poncho is something you might want to throw into your backpack.
Plastic Poncho With Hood
The polyurethane one-size-fits-all poncho with a hood shown below is very lightweight. When it’s not in use, it folds up into a special carrying case. You can easily store it in your car, just in case you need it.
Some ponchos are designed just for coverage. But this one is stylish, as well as practical.
In addition to the navy poncho shown below, this model comes in a wide range of colors, including black, royal blue, forest green, red, maroon, purple, yellow, jade, fuscia, coral and neon green.
An emergency poncho will also make a great gift for someone who likes to spend a lot of time outdoors, or who likes to travel.
