Cyclefox tested the people’s poncho: here is what they found

April 24, 2019

It could not have been better timing! We have been given the opportunity to try out a People’s Poncho. This is one item of clothing regarded as essential for many who ride their bicycle regularly.

The People’s Poncho arrived nicely folded in its little pouch. The advantage is that it fits over your everyday clothes, takes little space and adds almost no weight at all. The material feels soft to the touch and seems thick enough to sustain strong winds.

Branding is left to a minimum with the reflective logo at the top of the front pocket. The trim also has a reflective edge which gives the poncho a neat finish. There are two elastic straps on the front to fit over the the handle bar for extra lap protection, but it is by no means mandatory when in use.

These ponchos come in one size and at first sight, I was a bit worried about the hood which seems far too big. However, it is fully adjustable with two cords on either side and once pulled down, the hood was reduced to a suitable size to offer the protection it was meant to give. A visor cap is fitted in the hood and this is a nice feature to have especially if you wear glasses.
