Hi, any suggestions where to buy an Altus Poncho in Irun. Also is it possible to place an order before leaving to ensure one is available and the right size. Another query with sizing too!! I'm 165cm tall - Medium or Large? Thanks in advance

Hi Loretta
Below is an older thread by @peregrina2000 with quite a bit of info on the Altus poncho.
Like you, I was aware that they were available in Sjpdp so I ordered one online - and collected there at the start.
I am 160cm (maybe shrunk a little since ?) but I found medium was quite lengthy.

I’ve noticed that the shop in Pamplona ships world
Wide ., (Caminoteca.com)
So you could go to their site and type in a question about sizing etc.

Good luck
Annie

There is a Decathlon store in Irun. I can't find Altus poncho in their on-line store but maybe some other brand will do:
https://www.decathlon.es/Comprar/poncho
https://www.decathlon.es/es/tienda/tienda-de-deportes-irun-MS_0070019400194.html
It's in Parque Comercial Txingudi which is approx.5km from city center. I'm guessing here but the taxi should cost 1€/km. I believe there's public transport too.


PS (Also Intersport store in Irun but their home brand is McKinley.)
