The Swiss NBC Poncho is a German produced protective poncho that was designed to be issued to civilians in Switzerland. With a design goal of offering protection from NBC threats, these thick plastic ponchos are ideal for protection from heavy rains. We have all purchased commercial grade rain ponchos and experienced the frustration of still getting wet, and having them be good for at most a few hours of use. No need to be concerned about that with these Swiss NBC ponchos, they will stand up to heavy rain and will be able to be reused many times.
While originally designed as NBC ponchos, these are a great choice as a regular rain poncho. A good folded size and good price make these a great item to have around in various places, like in the car, backpack, by the front door, etc. These are cut to accommodate a backpack underneath. Very neat color as well.
Unlike the 1$ small plastic bags walmart calls a poncho, this german made poncho is made of very thick material, for only 2$! Get ya a couple of these instead of garbage ones and rain wont be a worry! Go Swiss!
Good for when it's wet. Though I can never get these to fold up right after unfolding it.
In the event of a NBC these would come in very handy if you have to walk through a area that is contaminated because it is rated for that kind of protection. If you are carry a full load of survival gear you can just throw this over you and once you are safe you can just toss it. The price is beautiful. The poncho comes in a pretty good size plastic wrap with German writing on the instructions. This poncho isn't going to rip easily.
Ideal as part of an economical vehicle emergency kit. Especially if you have more than one vehicle..
very good for camping, especially if one walks with a back pack in rain. It takes a small volume for packing easily if folded right.
I picked these up as something to throw in the cars to have just in case. They come in a small package with a nice price tag. I did not open them up but they look in real great condition and seem to be good construction. I plan to get some more and I am telling my friends about them.
