Helikon Poncho US Model

(33 customer reviews)




Helikon Poncho US Model

Rainproof, quick-drying Helikon Poncho, made of rip-stop polyester. It has press studs which enable the wearer to make sleeves or connect two ponchos together.

The hood is fitted with a cord adjuster. The great advantage of this poncho is that it’s lightweight and small sized when folded – when compressed, the poncho fits into 14 x 22 cm/5.5” x 8.66” bag.

Helikon Ponchos are very versatile and provide a ton of ventilation while walking or rucking. Ponchos also work well for shelter and bedroll use in a minimal kit or bug-out bag.

Combine your poncho with a Paracord Hank, some #36 Bank Line prussiks and a handful of stakes for a fast-deploying and quick tear-down ridge line shelter system.

Normally available in Olive Green and US Woodland Camo.

    Really impressed with this item and will buy a couple extras to keep in vehicles. Getting soaked is a game changer – in a bad way!

    It seems to be well made. I also have the poncho liner to go in it. It brings back memories except for the color. But I wanted Camo. I was looking for a good poncho for a while now and believe I’ve found one, not a cheap knockoff.

    I already owned a camo poncho purchased on Amazon last year. However, GB2 has recommended this particular Helikon model with gusto on multiple occasions. It’s easy to see why now. This poncho is significantly lighter than similar ponchos on Amazon. Yet, it’s durable with excellent rip-stop. When you’re hauling a bug-out bag around, every ounce counts. This lightweight poncho truly does hold-up. Thus far I’ve used it for its purpose in torrential downpours as well as used it as a tarp, ground cover, and even shelter. Not only does it do the job at a fraction of the price and weight of similar ponchos on the market, but it also seems to have ten times the durability. Five stars… two thumbs up.

    Excellent poncho. Kept me dry in the Stony Creek WSC of 2021. Durable was great while navigating the woods. The snaps and grommets are heavy duty. Well worth the purchase for an essential ‘shelter’ item in your kit.

    Great poncho. Good for all situations and very versatile

    On initial inspection fit and finish are excellent. I am 5’5” and the length and coverage is perfect. I have heard some taller fellows saying the length does not quite cover well enough, but not a problem for me. The Polish camo is close to woodland, with maybe more brown than green? I also have the swagman roll, which fits this perfectly as a liner.
