Welcome to the people’s poncho. Founded in 2016, we take our inspiration from China, where unperturbed by the rainy weather people hop from place to place under the protection of a simple lightweight poncho.
We decided to adopt this democratic, uniform way of doing things and developed a poncho that could suit the needs of people around the world. After trying material after material, design after design, we finally found something we could be proud of. Rain wear that you can trust for any outdoor adventure.
Cycling, travelling/backpacking, camping, dog walking, hiking/trekking, festivals! You name it - we got you covered.*
To provide affordable, practical and credible protection from the rain whatever the outdoor adventure
Having been inspired by China and wanting to keep our democratic routes we borrowed some of the Chinese characters. The 伞 means to cover, or UMBRELLA and is shaped like an umbrella. Likewise 雨 has 4 rain drops in it and takes the meaning RAIN
Well our ponchos weren't just thrown together overnight, we've done some serious research and we believe we've come up with a product which is simply unrivalled in terms of quality.
Here's a few things which make our ponchos so darn lovely:
We are extremely proud of our unique waterproof material. It's made of the finest Japanese polyester money can buy, and some say it even gives them superhuman strength.
Here’s the technical stuff: The rating is measured in millimetres (mm). This rating indicates how many millimetres of water is needed to be poured onto the fabric before it starts to penetrate the garment and seep through onto your inner layers or skin. Our Ponchos have a 12,000mm rating (12 millimetres). In other words, they’re seriously waterproof.
Coming in at just 460 grams there's really no reason not to take your poncho with you on all of your adventures. Each poncho also comes with a neat little bag which makes it even easier to travel with.
The poncho is equipped with reflective strips for extra visibility, a waistband to prevent any foolish flapping in the wind, and special straps on the inside to keep your legs dry and cosy.
