Mine has arrived. I am really impressed by the detail of the design.
Good. I am really glad.
Tell us how you find it when you use it. Thanks
Mine arrived last week. as soon as I am back healthwise, I will give it a tray.
Mine arrived weeks ago, but got it yesterday (birthday)
Very nice will try it out asap
and will you be putting a cup of tea for it on this tray?
On a serious note...I have been waiting for people to start using it and commenting on the product.
Will keep waiting....ho hum
Come on chaps lets have a review.
Mine arrived yesterday - but as we are having a hoard of girls for a sleep over, I can't go to the woods this weekend!
Will try to get out next weekend with the bivvy bag!
Come on gents we need a review and picture of these in use.At the minute it seems as if everyone who's had one is afraid to comment,is there a reason for this?There must be a few people waiting for a review before the buy one.
I need rain to coincide with camping. As I do not live in the UK, that's more challenging than you'd think.
Just by way of information (I have just been asked to post this by Hilltrek).
"We would like to increase the price of the Ventile poncho on our website to £135 however for BCUK members we will maintain it at £115 at least until the end of this month.
To get this price the BCUK member would include in the information sent with the order their BCUK log on name."
I took mine out overnight last night in place of my Ventile smock.
I didn't need as rain wear, but I did drape it over me whilst I was reading under the tarp as a blanket.
This morning, the wind had dropped so I rigged it up as a tarp (flying V) just as a photo op really...
First impressions - very good!
It is plenty big enough to sleep under, and when worn as a poncho is almost silent, which is a big plus in my book.
Nice pictures. Expert looking set-up.
Looking forward to a few more pictures from others. Simon, thanks for your feedback.
Mine arrived weeks ago, Thank you to LBL, Wayland, Hilltrek and anyone else who contributed to this initiative. I am really pleased with the quality and design, I have not had chance to use it yet but I intend to take it with me on the Devices to Westminster Endurance canoe race at Easter. I will post how I got on with it after the event!
Anyone else used it in anger yet and got some photos???
Took mine out on a canoe trip last weekend. It was most useful, seeing service as both a ground sheet and a waterproof.
My companion for the day (also the owner of the canoe) tried it and was impressed by how light and comfortable it is. It doesn't get in the way when paddling and is very quiet.
I must remember to take a spare belt next time, howaever as I nearly came a cropper getting out when the hem got under my feet!
Finally got mine wet last weekend...
This was early saturday morning whilst on Scout camp.
Weather was wet and windy - Poncho performed well & I'm very pleased with it.
If it worked last weekend , it must be worth using ..
Good to see some photos by users at last. Seem like it is meeting at least one person's expectations
So far I have only found the occasion to wear it out once, but the weight and especially size of it meant that it's staying on the shelf till I can camp under it.
Mine arrived Saturday.
Im very impressed by the quality of the workmanship, it looks and feels bomb proof. First thoughts were that it feels light, but its about the same weight as army surplus ones. Its a bit bulkier, but it still fits snugly in the Viper large modular pouch (which I use as a butt pack) with room for about 10 m of 11mm rope below it.
Its a classy bit of kit and I, for one, am glad I did decide to shell what at first glance seemed a lot of cash; its worth every penny, IMHO.
Thanks to all concerned in bringing this to fruition. :You_Rock_
