another bit of vandalism? under "Traditional ponchos":
- traditionaly used to catch cows (Sam Buwert 2009),

"The poncho is essentially a single large sheet of fabric with an opening in the center for the head with a piece of fabric that covers the head."
"issued the Zeltbahn (see Shelter half), a poncho"
These two descriptions (and that in Shelter half contradict eachother. The shelter half (or certainly zeltbahn) does not have an opening in the center. It wraps around the user and the head ends up at the edge of the fabric, not the center.
I just removed the following as uncited for one year, but putting here just in case it leads anyone to find a proper cite:
|“||The modern rain poncho was invented in Baltimore, Maryland in 1958.||”|
