I am an avid fisherman from the midwest. It is ice season right now but it has been in the upper 40's the last two days. I never want to miss a chance to hit the pond due to weather. I went out today and it rained all day. I stayed nice and dry. The only thing that got wet where my hooks, my hands, and my feet. I have waterproof gloves and boots so it was not a problem. This poncho is light weight and I can store it in my pocket. Great buy if you cannot afford a full suit.
This is my third year I will be wearing this poncho. However, it does rip too, but the plastic is pretty tough. I used duck tape to fix it, and it works great. This poncho keeps me nice and dry. I love it! I just wish Cabela's would have it in color's.
