El poncho ha resultado un éxito, porque al llevar el hueco de la mochila, me permite estar completamente seco, y puedo ventilar y transpirar por la parte delantera. Muy buena compra y además estaba un 20% más barato.

Worth every cent! I bought it for the camino de Santiago and although we were lucky to only have 3 days of rain, it was put to the test. The rain came pouring down and I stayed dry. Totally! When the sun came out in between showers, it was great to be able to open the zipper and take your arms out of the sleeves to get some ventilation. You can leave the poncho hanging, but I attached the stretch cords from the hood to the strap of my backpack so if the wind picked up, it wouldn't unexpectly blow away. We had very strong winds as well while it rained and because it is closed all around (not with press stubs), the wind does not catch it and it stays on. Great purchase which I will enjoy for years to come!

He quedado muy contento con el trato y la gestion de Barrabes. No tenían el poncho que yo quería en tienda al estar fuera de temporada pero lo pidieron a sus almacenes y en tres días lo tenía en la tienda list para recoger y eso que las fechas eran próximas a navidades. El material llegó en perfectas condiciones y me sirvió. Todos mis comentarios son positivos, no tengo nada negativo que decir sobre Barrabes y sus productos.

Un producto excelente. El material es muy bueno y aguanta el agua muy bien. Incluso con la mochila puesta, resulta muy cómodo de poner, aunque es recomendable dedicar un poquito de tiempo (antes de que empiece a llover) a ver la forma de ajustar bien la capucha. Tiene la gran ventaja de que al ir abierto por delante, con lluvia ligera se puede llevar como si fuera una capa, de forma que ventila muy bien. El único pero es que es un poco pesado, esto se debe a que el material es relativamente grueso y resistente.

I bought this rain poncho as an alternative to wearing a rain suit and backpack rain cover for my camino walks, and even though it looks a bit strange to begin with, it is one of the best investments I made! It keeps you and your backpack nice and dry, is easy to put on and take off, and because of the size and width of it, it allows lots of air to circulate so you don't get clammy and wet on the inside of it. It has a zip and velcro down the front, elastic at the wrist and a little peak on the hood, so even your face is protected from the rain. I had a few very hard and sudden rain bursts on my walk, so I kept my Altus open at the front, hanging on the backpack, ready to pull on when the next shower came. Brilliant! I love it!

Found your poncho through a blog. Once ordered the service was great with the poncho being delivered very quickly to Australia. Before I left to walk the Camino in May there was lots of rain in Sydney, so I was able to trial the poncho. It worked very well. Just returned from walking 850 kms on the camino in Spain. Some days it rained so needed the poncho. Found I was able to put it on/take it off by myself without too much difficulty. It kept me and my backpack dry. Especially liked the peaked cap. Other pilgrims had trouble with other ponchos not covering them and their backpack and with their poncho tearing but I had no touble with this one. The zip and the velcro fastenings at the front and on the sleeves also worked well. All in all an excellent product.

An excellent product. At the end of a torrential down pour of 35mm (almost 1 1/2 inches)of rain in 20 minutes, clothes and backpack were almost bone dry. Barrabes service was excellent, only 4 days between online order and delivery in Australia.

Why did no one think of this before? The perfect compromise between a backpack cover, poncho, and rain coat. Last week, my wife and I tried our rain capes in a heavy rain with 40 mph winds. From the knees up, and from the wrists up, we were dry, and that includes our packs. The capes are light and easy to put on. Neither rain not wind can penetrate them. We will be on the Camino again this spring; our rain capes will be our protection. We are experienced trekkers and we know a good product when we see it. Coupled with rain pants or gaiters, the capes will keep you warm and dry.
