The poncho is an undervalued rain garment with excellent ventilation that is also very easy to move about in. Fjällräven's the Men's Lappland Eco-Shell Poncho has a number of smart features that make it easy to remain focused in heavy rain. It has been designed for bird watching, photography and other activities that take place in the wilderness close to animals.
Sleeves allow easy handling of equipment, while the press buttons keep the sides in place and make putting on and taking off easy. A protective flap at the chest keeps binoculars, cameras and other water-sensitive equipment dry, and can be rolled up and stowed away in a pocket when not needed. Its long cut keeps your legs dry, and the front can be rolled up and held in place with a strap when you want to walk about. There is an adjustable hood with a little brim and a spacious kangaroo pocket that provides fast warmth for frozen hands.
The poncho is made from 2.5-layer Eco-Shell with the outer fabric in recycled polyester with fluorocarbon-free impregnation. It gives a quiet, comfortable garment that follows movements and can easily be packed up when not in use. Reinforcements in polyester (partly recycled) over the shoulders and rear give extra durability when carrying a backpack or sitting on stony surfaces.
