Re: Foul Weather Gear
small, if I saw someone on deck with a poncho I'd send 'em ashore.
A poncho is the classic definition of "loose clothing" which IS going to rapidly get fouled in the sheets, wrapped in the winches, and either get torn off or cause a bigger problem in short order. Doesn't belong on a person on a sailboat under way.
