"Hey folks, this is former Navy SEAL Cade Courtley with your 4Patriots Survival Minute. I want to introduce you to the military issued poncho. You know why this thing is amazing? You know why they keep issuing this out since Vietnam? Because it can do so much and it can save your life. I never went anywhere without one of these.

Aside from the obvious of keeping you warm and dry. It's got a hood on it. Most of the heat escapes from your head.

It's also ideal for making a hasty shelter. You know what? Because it's got eyelets on every corner, bungee cord, rope, stakes, you name it, perfect for a shelter.

If you want to, you can literally tie a knot in the hood, and use it to collect water.

If you do not have a military issue poncho, you probably have your standard 50 gallon trash bag. You can do all the same stuff. Collect water, make a shelter, you can cut a hole in the top and sides, and you can wear it like a rain jacket.

That's it. I'm Cade Courtley with your 4Patriots Survival Minute. Be a survivor, not a statistic."
