A poncho (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈpontʃo]; Quechua: punchu; Mapudungun: pontro; "blanket", "woolen fabric") is an outer garment designed to keep the body warm. A rain poncho is made from a watertight material designed to keep the body dry from the rain.
For all that, which is better poncho or raincoat? Rain ponchos offer protection from downpour up to the mid-thigh section while rain jackets are a little shorter. Rain ponchos have superior windproof, waterproof and breathability functions as compared to rain jackets.
Otherwise, are ponchos waterproof?
Typically, raincoats are considered to be waterproof, which requires a membrane, providing a layer of bulk. Ponchos are usually water-resistant, allowing you to bypass the heavier top layer while staying relatively dry.
Do ponchos keep you dry?
Ponchos offer better ventilation than rain jackets- Because ponchos fit loosely, they allow more airflow. This helps you stay dry by allowing sweat to evaporate and escape. When you sweat while wearing a rain jacket, the sweat can get caught between your body and the waterproof material.

Ponchos. Yes, they're back. After having a forceful early-2000s resurgence, the poncho has returned for fall 2020. On display across several runways including Longchamp, Michael Kors, Zimmermann, and Anna Sui, there's an option to suit everyone: cozy knit, wool, and velvet versions.
Every poncho is like every other one and they work to keep the cold away as well as the rain, although modern American ponchos are built mainly for rain. The traditional poncho can act as ground cover, pillow, backpack cover, and survival insulating blanket—among other uses.
The sarape or jorongo is a long blanket-like shawl, often brightly colored and fringed at the ends, worn in Mexico, especially by men. The spelling of the word sarape (or infrequently, zarape) is the accepted form in Mexico and in other Spanish-speaking countries.
As far as the top is concerned, if your poncho requires to wear something underneath it, the most common option is to wear it over a long sleeve t-shirt or sweater. Exhibit your outfit coordination prowess by wearing this casual combination of a tan poncho and navy skinny jeans.
Pants. Similar to the waterproof shell (rain jacket), rain pants are a great waterproof option for keeping your entire lower body warm and dry, and to help prevent hypothermia. ... Rain pants are a must in cooler weather. In warm weather you can dispense with the pants, wear gaiters and allow the rain to cool you.
A waterproof jacket is a must for keeping dry while walking in the rain. Look for a breathable fabric that will help reduce perspiration. A good rain jacket should also have a sturdy hood that fits well and can be tightened to keep water out. Raincoats are sold at many department, sports, warehouse, and outdoor stores.
