2015 Mountain Laurel Designs SilNylon Pro Poncho. Used 4 nights, excellent condition. Comes with MLD stuff sack. Please not that the poncho was used in Utah canyon country and the silicon seam-sealer is naturally a little tacky so it picks up sand. I’ve washed the poncho but there is still some minor sand along the seams (see photo close-up). From the MLD Website: The hood is set into the ridgeline and seals shut quickly in tarp mode when the ridgeline is under tension without the need to tie up and stake out the hood to prevent water pooling like common circle-in-the-middle hood style ponchos. The MLD SlitHood is also the strongest hood design possible. Our unique hood design requires over 60 manufacturing steps to produce. Overall shape tapers front to rear for good coverage in tarp and poncho mode. Widest front width poncho tarp made for full coverage in tarp mode. Tapers to 55 in the rear. In poncho mode the wide end is in the rear to wrap around pack. In tarp mode the wide end is over the chest and head for more rain and wind protection. Exclusive: Hood features a stiffened brim and volume adjustment for a tight fit and drastically reduced mind numbing wind flap when worn vs. Hood is off set forward for full pack coverage and the wide end is in the rear for wrap around pack coverage in poncho mode. Exclusive: Catenary cut (curved) ridgeline for a fast and tight set up in tarp mode. Note: The ridgeline curve is just enough for a nice A-frame pitch but not so much that other Lean-To type pitches can not be achieved. This design offers tight pitching with less fuss, better wind resistance, water shedding and far less possibility of stakes pulling out or insomnia inducing wind flap. Exclusive: Two additional ridgeline tieouts positioned 20 from each end for various pitch options in the Silnylon version. Pictured is an A frame pitch with the rear pitched closed using the rear ridge line tieout. A third ridgeline tieout at the center for use in lean-to mode. Front and rear ridgeline tieouts includes a CF tarp pole tip grommet. Front ridgeline tieout quick to identify: It has the MLD Logo label integrated as a tie out reinforcement. Multiple hang loops on the inside ridgeline for bivy, watch, glasses and bug bivy hanging. The item “Mountain Laurel Designs SilNylon Pro Poncho” is in sale since Saturday, February 13, 2016.
