As these ponchos only have minor faults, we have not destroyed them or sent them to landfill, as we'd recommend them for alternative uses such as dust covers, bird-poo covers in the garden or equipment covers in sheds or garages. Suitable for motorcycles, lawn mowers, barbeques and any other outdoor items you want to protect from the elements - just use the poncho's studs or add elastic bungee cords to hold the cover in place.
This waterproof poncho from the French army still offers a person protection from sudden downpours or light rain despite the minor holes. Fantastic for festivals, sport-watching or general outdoor use during inclement conditions. Ground sheets for picnics, kids' play tent, car seat cover, or any one of many other uses we could name are possible.

The motorcycle in our photos is protected from seagull poo in the FU-Kit backyard by two ponchos connected together using the poncho's studs, along with three cable ties through the adjacent corner eyelets of each poncho, as well as the central eyelet.
