I love landscape and wild life photography, and needed something to cover my large backpack and also my camera. I did the usual You Tube search and came across the MILTEC poncho. Some really great reviews, but also one that exposed "copies". I ordered one from eBay and it was described as "new unused" when it arrived it had a small tear . I returned it and got a refund. The reason I have told this story is because the MILTEC version I purchased from Cadet Direct is the proper job. Really good quality, at a good price, the delivery time was spot on, and rolls up and stows away really easily. If you are looking for a 100% genuine MILTEC poncho at an affordable price go to Cadet Direct. Well made 100% waterproof poncho/groundsheet/ tent. look no further .Great product thank you.
