UPDATE: Altus is no longer making the "Golden Lima" poncho and the current Navy Blue will be revised in new colors later this year. Until those new versions are out they have no more stock. They mentioned to me it might be until September, hope to have more back in stock before that, but...

Too small

I received both ponchos in quick time, BUT the sizes are quite small for both.

A Must Have for the Camino!

I ordered 2 Altus Ponchos. My husband and I were leaving on our spring Camino Frances and I knew that we would get some rain. Little did we know that we would also get snow! It was a great rain buffer, and it is also a thermal layer, as we learned when we hiked up O Cebreiro in the snow! This is something that you shouldn't leave home without!! We highly recommend it!


Haven’t used it yet - no rain. The fit is good, it is light, long and I like the pack pouch and that it snaps up when not in use. Thanks for the quick delivery. Because it has not been tested in the rain I can only rate it as a 4
