Can you please tell me if/where I can buy a bright Orange poncho that doubles a a basha ? I think this is a vital bit of kit but I cant find any. I am planning a 177mile walk within the next few months but without it Im doubtfull of being able to start.

I haven’t seen any orange poncho’s around. Why are you doubtful that you can start without it ? Are you thinking of using it as a location aid aswell as a shelter ? It is a good idea : especially if someone made a reversible one for that very purpose. A foil emergency blanket could be used as a location aid instead.

http://jerven-com.secure.flexiweb.no/ The Fjellduken is a popular european piece of gear and available in international orange. They are pricey, and a few years ago my attempts to acquire one for testing met with silence. It looks like they are takinig online orders now.

Hello Chris,

Then indeed there is the Bivanorak, tested here, and a whole range of tarp poncho, ferrino, TasmanianTigers (tatonka), Expe, and about the same idea ; there is the GateWood cape : http://www.sixmoondesigns.com/shop/...
