Show Description

This multi-purpose rig is a poncho or it's a bivy-shelter or a tarp to provide shelter from squalls. You can cinch it closed when it's on your body or peg it out when used as a tarp. It's compressible, so it packs up small when not needed. Bring it hiking or skiing, to music festivals, or when you're volunteering at a windy marathon aid station.
