If you love the original Honcho Poncho from Therm-a-Rest, then you’ll love the new one too.
As part of the brand’s new line for Spring 2023, the Honcho Poncho Down is as functional as it is cozier — and just as great for backpacking, car camping, and overnights.
The Honcho Poncho Down is made of quality materials, providing high-performance protection and unparalleled comfort, making it the perfect layer to wear to your camp and beyond.
Made of 100% recycled nylon that has been approved by the Global Recycle Standard, the Honcho Poncho Down’s shell is DWR-coated for water protection.
Likewise, it retains its puffy warmth in damp situations when combined with 650-Fill Nikwax Hydrophobic Down, which is approved by the Responsible Down Standard.
It is practical around camp for necessary jobs like filtering water and cooking thanks to design features like the anorak zipper, a fitting hood, and a snap pattern that limit the superfluous fabric typical of classic ponchos.
Anywhere you go, you’ll be able to pack up and bring along your preferred layer thanks to the front pocket that also functions as a stuff sack.
With top-notch comfort and performance in the cold, the new Honcho Poncho Down, available for at $249.95 (MSRP), is the perfect layer at camp.
