The lightest silnylon poncho/tarp we have reviewed, but also the shortest.
By Roger Caffin
The Oware poncho/tarp is a 5'2" by 7'8" rectangle of silnylon with a hood in the middle. The hood has a bungee drawcord closure around the face. There are 12 guy points around the edges plus four snaps to close up the sides. Just another poncho/tarp?
