The poncho itself would have had this be a 5 star review, but the delivery process left me feeling a bit dubious. I ordered the red poncho, on 17th, and received an email saying there were no red ponchos available at this time. They would arrive at warehouse in about a week. The website did not mention red was currently out of stock. This was a gift that needed to get places before a deadline so I asked if there was another colour available. I would have chosen yellow, but Camo was offered, which suggested to me that all but camo was out of stock. Again, no indication on the website that this was the case. As this was going to be used for hiking, that colour would not work. More than a week passed and the red had not yet arrived at the warehouse, I received another email, communication was good, offering black. Now I was getting very concerned. Why did just black ponchos get delivered? I responded that red was what I really wanted, black was not a colour my friend could wear, so if I couldn’t get red before the deadline, then I would like yellow next, then blue. Blue suddenly became available. Going to be honest, I was now looking at different gift options because I was thinking there was some type of scam going on. Maybe the site got hi-jacked, maybe the good reviews were bogus, either way, I was about to lose my money and no gift was going to arrive. Luckily, at my eleventh hour, the red arrived and was going to be delivered on time, the 31st. Two weeks after being ordered. Which, if the website had said that to start, would not have been a concern. Instead, I was feeling like, at the very least, the company was trying to replace the popular colours with less popular stock, if they could pull it off. Something to work on so that the whole experience gets 5*. As, I said at the beginning, the poncho itself was great. 5*. My friend is 5’ 2” and the poncho was perfect length to cover backpack, good-sized camera, and upper legs. I was concerned it would be too long and cause her grief when walking. It was not. Note, in pouring rain, one should wear rain pants, as ponchos, like all rain gear, will drip onto one’s lower legs. Probably others know better, just not us. The hand holds were fantastic for when the wind picked up. And the poncho was light enough for the front of it to be rolled up and be draped over the shoulders and back to allow cooling air to flow when it was not pouring. Rain gear is warm and the poncho is no exception. And, as hoped, the red was easily spotted from great distances, so a great comfort if my friend had gotten misplaced. Poncho great, communication good, delivery needs tweaks.
Not yet worn in the rain, but fits well and is really good quality. It was a good fun present for my son in law
Really very comfortable, breathable and versatile (loose or custom fit).
I recently purchased the red poncho from People’s Poncho as I’ve not been able to settle on a waterproof jacket for bike touring and commuting. I’m U.K. based so expect this to get a lot of use and have already used it three times in ten days. I like the great quality of the poncho, I like the colour and how well it keeps my torso dry. The carry bag is great as are the reflective qualities of the poncho. I am expecting a big improvement in my winter commute due to the use of this poncho.
Darling GF was getting soaked cycling to work in a normal waterproof coat, and this has helped a lot. She really loves it, and the quality seems good. It also makes her much more likely to be spotted on the road, which is a great thing for her safety. I think it should come with a transparent pocket on the back to hold a bike light, as it covers bike lights mounted on saddles, which is a common spot to mount them given lack of mounting spots, especially on folding bikes.
