November 04, 2017

There was a time the world fell out of love with the poncho (probably due to the awkward but necessary plastic travel poncho), but here at Moojoes our love for the garment has never wavered. Not only can ponchos be super cozy during colder months, but they can be so useful to protect yourself and your backpack from getting wet in the rain.

We recommend you try a poncho to see just what you’re missing out on. Still unconvinced? Here are the 10 annoying things poncho owners never have to deal with.
