Will be taking this and testing on my intermediate course in a few weeks. I figure with the weather changing itll be a good chance to test it aswell as a back up if it gets too cold. I can either wrap up in it or use the zip configuration and pull it up over my sleeping bag for extra warmth. I have the adaptive green color and have a taiga green poncho on order with survival supplies. The poncho I generally use is over sized and wont fit the swagman roll grommets.I usually carry this in my GHB.
