Anyone engaging in outdoor activities in most regions will have to consider the possibility of rain showers arriving while they are out in the open. This is especially true if you are planning an overnight or multi-day trip in the outdoors, such as a river journey in a canoe. While tents are the standard protection against rain and other bad weather while in camp at the end of each day, you will also have to consider some sort of foul weather gear that will keep you dry while you are traveling and while you are making and breaking camp or otherwise busy with activities outside the tent. If you’re ever canoeing during a thunderstorm, the poncho does not restrict paddling and you can continue paddling in hot weather while wearing it without breaking out in a lather of sweat. A poncho is an outer garment designed to keep the body warm or, if made from a watertight material, to keep dry during rain. The poncho is essentially a single large sheet of fabric with an opening in the center for the head with a piece of fabric that covers the head. Rainproof ponchos normally are fitted with fasteners to close the sides once the poncho is draped over the body, with openings provided for the arms, and many other tactical ponchos have hoods attached to ward off wind and rain.
