These 9 Military Poncho Survival Shelter Configurations are easy to learn and actually quite fun to sleep under/in. Plus in a pinch, these could save your life!
A poncho is an essential item for ANY outdoor outing and certainly in every Survival Kit and Bug Out Bag is a good quality Poncho. There is nothing more miserable (and dangerous) than getting soaked by rain. I think a poncho is a great addition to any bug out bag. A poncho is lighter than a tent, can be made into different configurations to fit your needs and is a lot cheaper too. They can be worn as a rain coat if you need to keep moving.
If you want to learn how to make shelter from a poncho read this great article from our friends over at willowhavenoutdoor. Creek shows us how to make 9 configurations that may just save your life one day.
