Poncho is a very popular garment in South America. It is a woolen (traditionally, but today there are many variations of materials) blanket with a hole for the head. Some ponchos have hoods to protect the head as well. Poncho is an ideal piece for mountain regions, with their cold nights, stern winds, and unexpected rain or snow. Also, a poncho is very convenient – you don’t have to worry about buttons and things like that. And it is warmer for the arms to keep them close to the body because poncho usually doesn’t have sleeves.
At night, shepherds and travelers in Mexico often use their ponchos as blankets. This garment is a great invention.
To wear a poncho, you just put your head through the opening, adjust the garment on your shoulders, and put the hood on if there is one. That’s it. You’re clothed. Very easy and very comfy.
Rain ponchos (waterproof garments) often have fasteners on both sides of the garment to make the poncho clasp to your body for better protection.

Actually, I didn't know rain ponchos have fasteners on the sides. But it is logical
