Mine is packed up in one of about 50 boxes.
Does anyone have one for sale?
I'd prefer an older one, but will consider any poncho in good condition.

I have a size medium, purchased this year off Amazon. Very disappointed in it, as no pockets and ponding of sweat at the elbows. (Relates to height at which walking poles are held.) I'm thinking of ditching it for a Decathlon poncho when I get to Ourense in a few days; although the Decathlon poncho is a bit short in the arm department. The problem is that the Altus poncho is made of ripstop nylon and it doesn't breathe. If I use it as a cape, it's okay. I pull the sleeves inside out to stop them flapping in the wind.
Frankly, the overall quality is poor - even the velcro is second rate. Its redeeming feature is that it keeps my pack dry.

PM me if you want to buy it.

Annie...I have two. One small and one large. We haven’t used them for years..nor have I looked at them for many years. First used in 2009....does that count as old.
Do you want to sell one? :::doing a happy dance:::

Yes
Annie....both are from 2009. I will have to dig them out and insure that they are still in good shape. I recall that one of the storage bags was missing and that one of them had a tape repaired tear (from fence) somewhere on bottom.

UPDATE: I did find them. The size "Talla L/XL" is the one that has a tape repaired tear on the bottom back. It is not apparent from the outside as the tape is inside. Not a big area and does not affect the coverage as I recall.

Added: Annie...I sent you a PM
