Old Grouch’s Military Surplus has introduced two new items to accompany their Improved Military Poncho (see previous post).
The first is a longer version of the Improved Military Poncho. The “Tall” version measures 94″ compared to the standard 82″ of the regular version. The poncho is a full 12″ longer and has an additional row of snaps but the spacing on center remains the same so that both the regular and tall version can be snapped together when used as shelter halves.
They have also worked with the manufacturer of their ponchos to create the Tactical pack Cover with Rain Hood. This is a water resistant cover that can be fitted to your pack via a drawstring and elastic strap. It also has a head and shoulder hood that can be pulled up and over the wearer. It covers in such a way that gear on the chest like chest rigs or items on your armor are still accessible. It is available in two sizes based on the size of your pack.
