I see that you can use the DriDucks poncho as a weather shield for your hammock with some slight modifications. What exact is a weather shield? Can you still use the poncho as it was untended after you have it modified? What does it do when used as weather shield?
Would you rather use a poncho as opposed to a rain jacket and rain pants? I'm still getting all my gear gather together and trying to figure out what to do about rain protection while hiking.
