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.
**This is a 9' length poncho and should be resereved for those that are taller. The gentleman above is 5' 11" in height and you can see how it hangs on him. The outside corners are going to be lower, when the arms are lowered.
The MEST™ Poncho can be used as a poncho, ground cloth, emergency shelter, improvised pack cover, improvised litter, etc.

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