MEST™ Poncho - Coyote

Bushcraft Outfitters MEST™ Poncho - Large - Coyote

While useful as a stand-alone item, the MEST™ Poncho can also compliment one of our tarps or an existing shelter system you currently have.

The MEST™ Poncho can be used as a poncho, ground cloth, emergency shelter, improvised pack cover, improvised litter, etc. 


  • Size: 58"X 93"
  • Urethane coating
  • Tabs: 8 perimeter
  • Weight: 11.5 oz
  • Includes  stuff sack

We recommend seam sealing the hood of the poncho with a good urethane-specific seam sealant, such as the McNett product linked below. 

Made in the USA from domestic and imported material.

    MEST Poncho

    Posted by Ray Hayes on Oct 30th 2017

    Used this poncho while backpacking in an absolute deluge of a rainstorm this past weekend and it performed very well. Staying completely dry in that environment was impossible, but the poncho kept me more dry than I thought it would. The temps dropped off quickly into the 30's F, but just the poncho as a vapor barrier and a base layer top underneath kept me at a good temp, and the ventilation when moving allowed me to dump heat when I needed to. Overall, I am very pleased with it. It has a good quality to cost ratio and performed well in difficult conditions. Only reason for 4 stars is the previously stated issue with hood size and opening. Other than than, I can highly recommend it!

    I bought this to test out and love it. I've added it to my vehicle emergency kit supplies. The versatility of the MEST poncho will probably lead me to buy several others for myself and friends.

    Great poncho! Rivals the military one, but smaller pack size and lighter!

    MEST poncho coyote

    Wow! I was expecting a bit more weight and bulk, this thing is plenty large and seems tough (I haven't taken it to the field yet). It compacts down very small and weighs little. Only one complaint, I have a rather large noggin and I wear glasses. I can't slip the poncho over my head without removing my glasses first. Wish it was a bit bigger in the "throat". Overall I wish the entire hood was a bit larger but it still fits and for the price / quality ratio it's great!
