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.
The MultiCam® fabric has up to five time the amount of water repellent coating of other nylon material, as well as being infused with a fire retardant.
We recommend seam sealing the hood of the poncho with a good urethane-specific seam sealant, such as the McNett product linked below.
All components of the Multicam MEST™ are 100% made in the USA of mil-spec material.

I really like this poncho. I haven't tested to determine whether it's water proof or not, but I like the overall construction. The Multicam color and pattern are great. The advertised qualities of this poncho make it an essential item to having among one's gear stores. No regrets with this purchase (unless it leaks, but I don't think it will)!
