If you are interested in a lightweight poncho that doesn't need to take a lot of punishment look for Dri Ducks poncho - there's another thread here talking about where JRB is retrofitting them to make light weathershields with them.
Adam videotaped the "Press Release" demonstration of the dri ducks poncho mod at Mt. Rogers.
I like the concept of the driduck poncho. I am a little worried about its durability. Did they say how much they are going to cost yet? I also want the poncho to be a little bigger then the driducks version.

I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
