Our new Honcho Poncho is far from being a one-trick pony. Oh no. In fact, you could probably even ride a pony in the Honcho Poncho and benefit from looking like a cool but modern Clint Eastwood starring in some weird spaghetti western. But that’s just one example of something badass you can do in the multi-functional, water-resistant, styling and profiling Honcho Poncho. Here are a few more examples of how the Honcho Poncho is totally clutch for those in-between (and sometimes awkward) moments in the outdoors.

We understand that your transitions from the car to the ocean (or vice versa) need to be quick, but they don’t have to be cold. Just throw on your trusty, insulated Honcho Poncho and get on with it. The added benefit? We don’t have to get mooned anymore!

Hut trips are awesome … until you’re sitting around in a freezing hut during down times. But now we’ve got you covered, literally, with the extra warm Honcho Poncho.

Transitioning from Sleeping Bag to Coffee

The moment of truth. That inexorably difficult, heinously uncomfortable period of time when you have to leave the warm cocoon of your sleeping bag and face the chilly new day to make a warm cup of coffee. Well, we’ve got a solution. Since the Honcho Poncho is an insulated blanket you can wear, throw it on first, before you leave the proverbial nest, and instantly reap the benefits of making coffee while still burrowed in a blanket of warmth.

If you’re bedding down for a cold one, remember that adding a Honcho Poncho to the mix can beef up your insulation. Throw it on and forget about getting chilled. Plus, you’ll be prepared for that previously mentioned transition in the morning (or when nature calls in the middle of the night!).

For Chillin’ by the Fire

Want to make all your camping mates stare with envy? Show up to the fire-ring with a Honcho Poncho and be all like, “Sup? Wanna party?” For guaranteed jealousy, stuff the super-deep, kangaroo pocket with chocolate and other treats that you periodically whip out to share with the crew.

Climbing (especially bouldering) is all about finding the perfect temps. And the best conditions for success are usually on the colder side. But how do you stay warm when you’re in between burns? You guessed it … Honcho Poncho!

Don’t hog your Honcho Poncho. Sometimes your adventure companions need some snuggly, blanket love too. Wrap ‘em up and get out the camera—it’s a hoot!

Game Night + Honcho Poncho = Totally Worth It!

Are you totally stoked on hanging at the field, but super bummed when you get too chilled? Have no fear! Just have a Honcho Poncho. We also recommend toting one (or 3) along to summer music festivals or other outdoor events that run well into the night. Plus, when you’re not wearing it, spread it like the blanket it is for a soft spot to sit.
