Czech Army Poncho - Over Sized Water Resistant Poncho from Czech Republic
Czech Army Poncho
The Czech Army Poncho is an over sized water resistant poncho that was used by the Czech army. These ponchos are in fantastic condition having come to us from Europe and show no signs of having been used.
The Czech Army Poncho is a great piece of gear for dealing with wet weather. The Czech Army used this poncho for field exercises and designed it to be able to cover a full load of gear that a soldier would commonly use. This makes this Czech Army Poncho ideal as the over sized design makes it sure to fit any person.
Authentic Czech Army Poncho
Full Arm Access - Great For Shooting or Hunting In Wet Weather
VERY roomy, with a double layered hood/shoulder. I am 5-07 tall, and mine reached the ground. I'll have to cut off 6 - 8 inches or so and hem it, but this is a minor matter for the price.
Great poncho. It's large enough to cover you and any gear you're carrying. It could even be an emergency shelter in a storm; just sit on a stump or rock, tuck in your arms and chin, and let it rain !!! I may replace the buttons with snaps, but that's a personal preference. Works GREAT as is.
Better than what I was issued in the early 80's US Army
The material and format (arm slots) are great. The hood is large and encompasses the head completely. I got this for walking the dogs when the rains are coming down.
Beats the US Military issued equipment I received. Better quality. Very large (military gear) to cover a jacket or what ever the weather calls for.
My husband opened his poncho up expecting to be really happy with the product to find out that there was a couple buttons broken, there were no pieces in the pack that it came in so we are assuming it was packaged like that. The quality control needs some help. Other than that, he is happy with the product.
Another great piece of military surplus sold by Keep Shooting, covers the entire body and gear if you are in the field, has multiple uses.
Great design, better quality
This design is great and the quality is even better. Im very happy with this purchase.
Absolutely great buy, the 2 ponchos I ordered showed up surprisingly fast and look as good as or better than the picture, flawless unissued condition and they look pretty cool to boot. They're very heavy duty and feel like they'll last quite a while even with heavy use. Would buy again.
room for two
Definitely a heavy duty piece of kit, beats the pocket ponchos with ease. Ordered on a Friday, received Monday morning - Monday afternoon we enjoyed 1.25 inches of rain in about 3 hours. I was working out in it from start to finish - and breaking in my new poncho correctly. It's roomy enough to use over a full rucksack, or in my case over a tool belt and scba.
The only thing about it that I don't care for, are the buttons - actual buttons, not snaps. I will be rectifying this shortly with either velcro/gecko flex ormagnets.
High quality, low price
This poncho is essentially on the same scale as the German military poncho which costs three times as much. It is large, solid, and comes with a convenient case for storage. I bought one, then another after seeing the quality. Have one in all vehicles now. Hardly take up any space and many uses.
If you really care about staying dry no matter how heavy the rain might be then you definitely need one of these. I bought 2 of them and I'm happy that I did. These ponchos are larger than expected, very well made not cheap stuff. It comes with a carrying pouch and take very little room making them very suitable for permanent carry on outdoor equipment. If some one drops a bucket with water while I wear one of these I really do not care; I know that I and my gear will stay dry...
Thank you KS!
Great for the Money!
Like others have said, this is a BIG poncho. But it is built well. I wanted something sort of for emergencies but something that I could work in in the rain if necessary. This fits the bill - doesn't fold up real compact BUT it will last many times over and not just once like the cheap ones. I imagine that it will keep you bone dry while working in the down-pouring rain all day. Nice poncho. Everyone needs to fix gutters, change a flat tire, etc. at times in a downpour and this is the ticket. I look forward to working in the rain for a day with this and then I'll know for sure.
Good deal for the price, but this is one huge poncho. I'm 5'10" and while it does fit length wise pretty well it is very wide. I could probably fit another person inside. It'll work just fine as a poncho but I'm looking to use it more of an emergency shelter or ground cloth, it'll be a perfect fit for that use.
Well built but bulky
I received my Czech army poncho yesterday from Keepshooting. The poncho seems very well made; it seems to have a nylon outer with an rubberized inside coating. The hood is oversized. The poncho seems to be very substantial, however it is a little thick when you fold the poncho up. I purchased the poncho for hunting. I wanted something that I could use as a groundcloth if I needed to sit on the ground, and still use the item as a poncho if it rains. This poncho seems like it is more than up to the task; almost too nice for the task. However for the price they are selling out I don't think I will find something cheaper. So, basically for the price of a cheap nylon poncho at a big box store; I received a poncho which is significantly better built and suited for what I need it to do.
