Czech Army Vinyl Poncho - Head to Toe Coverage from the Elements
Czech Army Vinyl Poncho
The Czech Army Vinyl Poncho is a complete wet weather system that was originally issued in the Czech army. Consisting of a large pull over poncho, three finger gloves, and boots with integrated leg coverage you can achieve head-to-toe coverage from the elements for under $3.
No one likes getting caught in a rainstorm, especially when your far from home. What could be worse than sitting in your car, completely soaked.
We've got a great solution to this problem, the Czech Army Vinyl Poncho. This complete wet weather system comes to you sealed in a plastic bag, where inside you'll find the extra large pull-over style poncho, three finger gloves, and protection for your shoes and legs.
Designed to be worn over a full load of military equipment means this poncho is huge. You can count on it fitting virtually any sized individual.
Boots and gloves are stored inside a pocket on the poncho for quick and easy deployment
European military quality at a price Chinese imports can't match - Why buy an inferior product when this military poncho system is cheaper and better made?
For the money, these are a great investment. It’s hard to say how much skin protection they would offer in the instance of a chemical weapons attack, but it would probably be better to have it than to have bare skin exposed to acidic gases in the event of a chemical attack. Not only do you get an olive drab poncho, but you also get a pair of gloves (the lower three fingers are joined as with a mitten, but the index finger is free and allows manipulation of a firearm trigger) and a pair of boots made from the same material. These are also great wet weather gear. The only downside is that these ponchos are hard to fold back up once opened. For the price, these are a great value.

Review byIan Verified Buyer
I bought this item to throw in the trunk of my car in case I ever get stuck out in the rain. Fits well, and has great coverage. They aren't lying when they say head to toe coverage.

Good for when you need it. But not if you arr going for a walk around town. it's Huge, but works to keep you dry.
Review byGrok Verified Buyer
Don't have anything to add to the other reviews, especially since I was reluctant to open any of the 4 that I bought up since they'd probably take up twice the space once released from their shrink wrapped packaging then they do now. Now that I've seen them, I'll be ordering a few more - one for each vehicle and some extras for some other reasons...

Look this thing is cheap monitarily, work like a champ, and is big enough for pretty much anyone. I stand 6ft even. This comes down to my boot tops, the sleeves are the perfect length for me with a 36 inch sleeve measurement. The hood is okay. It doesn't have a drawstring. Why? Because these are in fact NOT rain ponchos. These are chemical defense suits used by the Czechs. Normally the hood would be taped around a chemical mask. Honestly who cares what these were made to do? They work great as full coverage rain gear. You can easily wear a heavier jacket underneath for warmth, have plenty of space to move around, this wont flap up on you like a traditional rain poncho, it comes with a pair of overboots so you can keep your feet dry and a pair of gloves. Should you use this in a prepper kit as chemical defense gear? Are you high? this is 20+ years old. There are easily some pin holes you can see in here and its a very heavy plastic that doesn't breath nor is totally encapsulating. Just use it as the awesome rain gear it can be and you wont be upset and Holy carps its less than $5. Buy a bunch of them.

Packs a little larger than I expected. Apprx 8"x10"x3" as packaged when it arrived. I don't think this will be packed out and used on overnighters but will probably nest in my vehicle and replace my cheap plastic disposable poncho. Would also make a great basecamp poncho. May purchase more to stash one at other locations.
Can't beat it with a stick!
Review bytom Verified Buyer
Ok, gotta say I bought this on a whim because of the price. My girls got a lot of good laughs when I tried it on. It is BOMB PROOF! Came new. For $2.50, what can you say. If there ever comes a time when this is needed, I will be glad I have it!
Overal it is a great product. Fantastic value
Review by280 Verified Buyer
This is great for out camping or something cheap to wear for some work outside in bad weather.
Somewhat bulky and hard to pack, but for the price it cannot be beat.
Review byJake Verified Buyer
It is made of medium thickness plastic (thicker than most ponchos but thinner than most military ponchos). The boots are an added bonus. You can fold and reuse as well.
