    Oh yes, its a fine piece of kit.
    But, since I dont really need it, because I do have to reduce the weight of the pack more and more, and therefore tend to sleep in any given shelter to save equipment, I consider selling mine :(

    I know in resurrecting a pretty dead thread, but I was thinking about getting one of these ponchos, I'm only 5'4" I was wondering if it's going to be a little too long?

    I love the look of these but the new price is a bit beyond my reach. Thought about making something using a canvas drop sheet and some Greenland wax.
