Hi, this is worthy but as I mentioned, it should be improved like giving zips rather buttons at side as well as on its top side
I bought this online recently before my planned trip to the Valley of Flowers. Being a Himalayan Monsoon trek, the poncho is an essential component of packing for this trek. Like all my other friends and co trekkers for this trek I , too went for this product, the only difference being that they bought the same from the store after careful inspection while I bought it online. Now on the very first day, while trekking in moderate rain, I got completely drenched within 1 hour of starting the trek. Although, by the end of the trek, everyone using this product got wet to a certain extent, mine was entirely different as the degree of getting wet was as same as not wearing a poncho at all. Dismayed on noticing that the water was getting in from everywhere, I went to the trek leader from Indiahikes who, after careful inspection, told me that my poncho was not waterproof. the same was repeated by the two guides from Indiahikes. Fortunately, one of my co trekkers had an extra poncho which i used and served me fine. Also, unlike the products my friends had (dried within a few hours) the particular product that I had took 4 whole days to dry. This itself proves that the poncho wasn't waterproof. Kindly arrange to replace the product as soon as possible.
Value for money
I don't regret buying this item. It's cheaper at Decathlon.
Light wait and easy to carry,compact packing.
...or while out walking the dog when you need both hands free
It's hardly been a day and the side press button fell off and a small stretch is enough to tear it or punch a whole.

Thanks for your feedback on the Arpenaz Hiking Poncho by Quechua. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you by our product.
The Arpenaz poncho has been a great companion for a lot of our users on the mountains providing a back up protection from the rain. To give you a small technical insight on this product, the fabric used in this product is EVA which gives more waterproofing compared to any other alternate option but it adds a little stretch which tears when comes in contact with thorns or bushes in the mountains. I apologize again for the inconvenience caused to you and I request you to visit any of our stores closer to you and get this product exchanged or refunded.
I stay available if you need any further support with our products or services in future.
Protected me from heavy rains in the mountains when I was riding. Covered the backpack on my back. A wonderful product.
I love rains and i am so happy that i got this product. It is so easy to wear. It is loose and airy and no matter how much fun you have in the rain you don't sweat. It is also very easy to carry around as it is light weight and folds into a small bag.
