This is a vintage US Army Lightweight Hooded Poncho / Groundsheet - dated 1951, Korean War era - which the soldier would carry in the field and could be used as a waterproof ground sheet/ shelter to help keep dry. Made from a tough and durable coated nylon that was made to last.
The poncho features holes punched along the circumference of the groundsheet, as well as a hood with an adjustable drawstring.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion, marks and discolouration throughout. Steamed and ready for a new owner.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.
