The 2016 April war started during the rainy spring season and the need to protect the soldiers from the daily downpours was evident throughout the front lines. As was the case for sleeping bags, there was no rain poncho manufacturing base in Armenia. We ordered high quality military grade rain ponchos from overseas, contracted a local textile manufacturer to make several high quality waterproof proof poncho samples for us, using as basis our imported samples. We, then, obtained the approval of the Army’s Logistical Department, ordered and delivered 3,400 rain ponchos to the men and women of the Army.
Our transformer ponchos are designed to be multi-purpose, provide protection to the servicemen from rain, serve as sleeping blankets, as well as transform into tent covers.
