Just dipping my toe in the water here. But who would be interested in a group buy of a ventile poncho - single layer with double layer shoulders & hood made by Hilltrek Ventile. Simple design (to keep price down) and large enough to cover a rucksack. Would anyone be initially interested. I am asking about a price from them as I write this.....

Let us know about the price and I might be tempted.

This sounds very gucci, it would be an awful lot quieter than my DPM one, but I would be interested in the pack size and weight of a ventile poncho in comparison to my army one:22: . Not to put a a spanner in the works its just that Im not that familar with those aspects of ventile cotton...:confused:

I have just heard from Dave at Hilltrek. He has looked at the comments (size, weight, pack-size, cost) on this thread and will get back to me once he had thought about these requirements.

Excellent idea. I may be interested but it depends on price and

a) size and stud spacing being compatable with NATO pattern ponchos
b) available in black or dark natural colour
c) not only availalble in DPM!:eek:

Best of luck with this one:).

Dave at Hilltrek has asked me if someone can send him a NATO pattern poncho to ensure compatibility (he will send it back afterwards). Can anyone help out on this? Dunno about postage except that its all in a good cause to get the group buy moved forward for the benefit of everyone!

At first I thought this sounded like a good idea.

On reflection though, it seems like a solution looking for a problem.
