Hazard 4 Poncho Villa

A good poncho is just about as versatile as any gear can be. The USGI poncho is part raincoat, part bivy cover, part tent, and all awesome. Hazard 4 has taken all of the functionality and upgraded the materials. The result is the Poncho Villa.

The Ponco Villa is a modernized version of the venerable USGI poncho. It features softshell fabric construction to keep the rain off while still being somewhat breathable. It has snaps to close the sides and grommets so it can be strung up as a makeshift tent. The Poncho Villa packs into its own front pocket which has a Velcro field on the front for displaying ID or patches. There are also Velcro fields on the shoulders, back of the head, and back.

This poncho has even more tricks up its sleeves (or lack there of). Read more at Hazard4.com.

    Why on earth is this only available in black and coyote, when the rainiest places in the world are green?

    Oh yeah, because coyote is the tacticool color du-jour. *facepalm*

    I guess all of the COD players in the Southwest will be happy watching these collect dust.

    I’ve found that most of the Hazard 4 gear looks like knock offs of quality gear that’s been redesigned for “fashion”. Sling bags taken from SO Tech; polos taken from 5.11. Looks about as functional as Maxpedition or Condor gear and probably made in the same factory. A better deal would be a sil-nylon poncho from Equinox. Nearly half the price and made in the USA:
