    Over the years, we have had requests to change the hoods on the MEST Poncho. We really do listen to feedback and try to give people what hey want. So, we have made the hoods larger on the standard MEST Poncho. They are now the same size as the Enhanced MEST Poncho hoods. They are much roomier and you can even wear a climbing helmet with the hood on. The stuff sacks are now 11.5" X 8", almost twice the size. We have also added the binder strip to the seams on the hood, just like the Enhanced MEST Poncho. I am not going to say you dont need to apply seam sealer, but I use 2 ponchos all the time and have never seam sealed them. Here is a pic of the Binder strip.

    Right now we have the OD in stock of the new standard. We still have a few of the older Coyote MEST Ponchos in stock, but once they are gone we will be switching to the new standard. With these changes unfortunately come a price increase. The new standard are $68 and the old style Coyote are still $50. Any questions please ask.

    Went with your advice from April, ended up ordering the enhanced pancho. Should be here in a day or two.
