Fit for purpose, lightweight, packs down small.
Small and light enough to throw in a bag but big and strong enough to keep me dry in a Florida downpour. Infinitely better than the plastic bag versions on sale in Disney! I’ve even bought a couple friends as well.
I’m a 5’ 6” woman. This is huge but Comfy, watertight and axactly what I needed to keep in my car for rainy day dog walks and outdoor work.
It will really come in handy and actually, though not stylish, looks OK whilst wearing.
Ordered this poncho for various long cycling trips, since it arrived i have not had any rain when out cycling, great buy, magic poncho
Great item for the price, kept me dry even when sat on a chair watching a concert.
My friend and I both bought ponchos from Decathlon for a hiking holiday in the Austrian Alps. My friend chose the green one with the fitted sleeves and as I am much shorter I chose this junior one, which is still a good size. We were caught in a storm at 2000 metres altitude when it rained heavily and needed to protect ourselves and our daysacks. My friends was totally dry and I was completely soaked. I was very disappointed with the performance of this poncho. I shall certainly be visiting Decathlon when I get back home to see if they can exchange it for one that does what it is supposed to.
This poncho did not keep the rain out.
Thanks for your feedback on the Arpenaz junior poncho. I apologise for the poor experience you have endured during your holiday. To date, the poncho has always received good feedback so it's disappointing to hear that the one you purchased has failed. Please drop back into store when you return and we will either exchange or return for you.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday!

This poncho is great. Ive used it in tropical storms and it keeps you dry. Lightweight, packs small, easy to use. Only thing I would suggest is option to buy a lighter colour or hi-viz because if you are in inclement weather or in the dark then you are difficult to see. I use it on my bike so visibility to other road users is important. Also if you got into trouble out walking on the hills then light colours would help people find you.
Lightweight, cheap price, good quality.
Dark colour = UR hard to see. Hi-viz option pleas
Bought this for my daughter to go to a music festival. My thinking being if it rains she will be protected long enough to get better shelter (perhaps) If it is windy then she has added warmth too. Packs very easily back into its pouch. Generous size which covered her rucksack too.. A MUST when need to keep your change of clothes dry :)
Not flimbsy. Thick fabric. waterproof
Not enough colour choice
