"The poncho you shipped me saved my butt in the Racing the
Planet Iceland Ultra-Marathon Stage Race last week. 155 miles
cross country on broken terrain in 5 days. 60 mph winds and
constant rain. Thanks so much!" -Roberto M.
"Just got back from a great hike on Canada's West Coast Trail.
While we were lucky and only had 2 days of continuous rain my
poncho was a great success. Of course I was instantly dubbed the
hunchback while wearing it but it didn't take long for all my
trail-mates to realize that I was the most prepared man in the
group." -Ed M.
"LOVED the poncho on my 500 mile section of the PCT this year...
it's one of my top 5 favorite pieces of gear!!! I used it in a
downpour at the northern terminus as I completed 7 years of
section hiking the PCT." -Sandy B.
"I used the Zpacks Groundsheet-Poncho for my 2015 PCT hike, and it remains my favorite piece of gear, hands-down.
Even with 3000+ miles on it, a couple of accidental burns in it, under several different tents,
and despite it making me look like a weather balloon when I wear it, I LOVE it.
Itís the hardest-working piece of gear I own." -Michelle 'SuperClassy' M.
