The Army poncho is waterproof well beyond 3 PSI which is what silnyl is waterproof too....It is also much sturdier .... camo too, if that is of value to you.....It weighs about 21-22 oz as I recall.

Silnyl ponchos weight 9-11 oz regular-extended models.

Yeah, the problem with my gi poncho is that it's too long for me. In the army it wan't a problem because my LBE was worn over it. I may be wrong but I understand that the ID sil poncho has a waist draw string ?
