Ode to the lowly poncho. The most utilitarian tool every scout needs.
You gotta love something that can swing from a tent to a coat to a sleeping bag, or a cover-all in the same day.
All seams are "electronically welded" (we have no idea what that means, but that's what they tell us). The rest of the ‘fancy’ details :
+ Full cut for proper fit
+ Roomy hood
+ Snaps all around
+ comes in 2 colors: Royal 1970s blue & Boy Scout Red (Fisherman's yellow and Hunter's safety orange coming soon)
We decided to make our own because nobody wants to get stuck camping without one of these. Ours are just like the OGs (ie: not fancy, just like us). We wanted to offer something for our campers who opt into our Rustic Camping Cluster. And, to be honest, we’re just obsessed with this old-school packaging. Every American tourist attraction from the National Parks to Dollywood had its own customized version back in the day.
EXCERPT from the 1930 Boy Scouts of American Department of Scout Supplies catalog: ”In planning your camping equipment be sure to include one of these ponchos. Will give you splendid service. Can also be used as a ground blanket or shelter tent.”
Utility that everybody takes for granted until they don’t. Even after all of these years, we failed at finding a poncho that does not come in hideous packaging. This is gonna be your best friend when you find yourself d in the back acres or in the middle of the lake in a canoe when a thunderstorm hits. Our comes with a handy reusable snap Closure vinyl case- emblazed with our “Storm-Pruf’ insignia. including awkward illustrations of people sleeping under *fancy trash bags, wearing them and fashioning tents out of them.
Be prepared for anything, Scouts. We can’t promise how long these will last. (Either in the camp store or physically out in the world). Not everything is destined to be an heirloom. (Much like our combs & bumper stickers - which we're also throwing in for some extra swag).
