If you’re hiking in the rain and want a protective cover for your backpack, a roomy poncho can accommodate you. If you’re spending a day at an amusement park and want “just in case” rain protection that folds down small, a poncho fits nicely in your pocket or purse. When choosing a rain poncho, you’ll first need to decide whether you want a disposable, semi-permanent, or permanent poncho. Disposable and semi-permanent ponchos tend to be monochrome sheets of thin synthetic material; many are sold in low-cost multipacks. Permanent rain ponchos are pricier; these options may sport a fun design, zippers or other hardware, and a fabric that feels more luxurious than basic plastic.
