3)It can be used as a shield against strong winds in case of bad weather
4)It’s a single solution for extreme weather conditions and does not require separate rain pants

Why do you need rainwear on a trek?
Trekkers often have this misconception that rain gear is only required during monsoon or snow season. This can easily turn out to be a fatal mistake on a trek.
Weather in the high altitude Himalayan settings is extremely unpredictable. Irrespective of the climate and season, it can turn bad in a matter of hours. In those situations, not having rain gear can put an end to your trek.
Having a poncho in your rucksack whenever you are on a trek is one of the easiest ways of making your trek safe. It protects you from sudden showers without adding much weight to your backpack.
