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.
In May 2018 we upgraded the hoods on the standard MEST Ponchos. They are now larger hoods and have a binder strip sewn in the seams to divert water.
- Size: 58"X 93"
- 70D nylon
- Tabs: 8 perimeter
- Weight: 13.2 oz
- Includes stuff sack
- Hydrostatic Head: >2000 mm
We recommend sealing this poncho with our Fast Cure Seam Sealant found on the line/shelter accessories page. You simply apply a thin even coat along the hood seams being sure to cover all of the exposed threads/folds in the fabric and let stand overnight to dry. This works best when you seal the outside layer of the poncho.
Made in the USA.

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