    I saw it on a figure the other day and thought it would be a neat accessory. Does anyone have one? Any suggestions on the types of material? does anyone have any pictures of it?

    Haha i was gonna pick one up too. I was thinking more of a heavy material, kind of like the poncho that clint eastwood wore but in a solid color. I was actually gonna sport it without the jet pack.

    I'd go with wool. Maybe a grey army blanket dyed blue if the wool will take the dye. My wife has machine washed my green army blanket before with no problem, and it'd probably be best to let it air dry.

    Really doesn't look like it would require much if any sewing. I would wear it with my pack since I use the arena pack. I was at the fabric store today and never thought of it.

    BTW, I know how to spell poncho, I don't know how to type.

    below are two very good images of the poncho!
    I have been on the lookout for a similiar material and have not found it yet. So if someone does I too would be interested in buying some!

    Going to try and get this fabric today. I don't suspect it will be that easy. Let you know what I find.

    It is the same pattern and close to the same color look at the side by side and post your opinion.

    Looks like it's sewn in loops. I found some close stuff today, but nothing exact. It looks like it will be closer to upolstery fabric rather than clothing facric. $14 doesnt sound too bad, some og the stuff I saw today was 29 or more.

    I'd say a wool or cotton blanket that has the same/similar weave.
    Foxbatkllr's right, L.A. fabric district is bound to have something.
