The Enhanced Patrol Poncho (EPP) by UK Company Snugpak® is a simple over the head, waterproof, smock that offers many creative design features.  A tactical low-vis poncho that covers the wearer and their backpack.  The EPP blocks water that would otherwise travel between the pack and the hikers back – soaking the suspension straps and any contents not stored in waterproof sacks. The Patrol Poncho covers all of these areas plus offers sleeves that provide a higher level of protection than standard ponchos and thumb holes at the sleeve ends to keep wrists and arms protected.  

The hood has a draw string on each side that cinches up the hood and when the zippered V-neck is fully zipped up.  A Velcro™ hood tensioner at the back of the hood keeps the visor up and out of your way when needed.  The 12″ x 7″ chest pouch, with Velcro™ storm flap keeps your map and compass safe while offering your hands protection from the elements in a sleeve, behind the storage pouch.

Its generously cut design is suitable for any-size user and can be used as an emergency bivi shelter if needed. The material is SnugPak’s® Paratex™ Dry material with rip-stop weave and fully taped seams which allows the shell to be 100% waterproof.
