I have been trying to find/buy a Bright Orange Poncho that can be used as a basha But the only ones like this that I can find are Army green or camoflage. Does any one know where to get the Bright Orange ones from.
I thoought they would be easy to find as I though that most people who use the great outdoors would have one,(saftey and all that).
Does ay one have any information on these?
a friend to all who seek

A poncho is not very practical in the UK due to the amount of wind we get.Most of those available are intended for military use,hence the colour.Surprising as it sounds I have never seen anyone in the outdoors in a bright orange poncho.

The only bright orange basha available is the large plastic "surival" bag.It is bright orange but its hardly the kind of thing you would want to sleep in during a walk.
