The MANERA Poncho is the perfect accessory to change before and after riding, plus it will get you warm and dry in a minute. The Poncho is a widely used product, but MANERA has been looking for a warmer, softer, cleaner and greener product.
This new version features a higher collar that protects your neck from the wind, a larger bottom cut to improve freedom of movement and a hood tightening system. They did not make any compromise using only 550gsm high-quality fabric.
MANERA chose bamboo fabric for mainly two reasons:
The Bamboo material has many great characteristics
- Ultra soft feeling
- Absorbs water three to four times better than a regular cotton
- Dries twice as fast as other materials
- Naturally bacteriostatic
- Naturally hypo-allergenic
And a reduced impact on earth
- Grows without fertilizers and pesticides
- Bamboo farming needs four times less water than cotton
- Absorbs 30% more CO2 than a tree, creates 30% more oxygen
- Prevents deforestation: Can grow 1 meter per day
- Prevents erosion because of its long roots
