(Santa Monica, California--April 29, 2009) Petrol™, a Vitec Group brand, introduces the Petrol Rain Poncho (PRP-2), practical weather protection for the working soundperson.

The Petrol PRP-2 is sized to comfortably cover a user carrying a mixer and fully loaded sound bag like the Petrol Eargonizer. The front section is made of transparent polyurethane for maximum visibility of working equipment. Slotted “pass-through” hand openings on either side provide quick and easy access to the mixer's controls. Long roomy sleeves provide the freedom to hold a boom pole or other gear at arm's length and still keep the mixer and equipment bag safe and dry. Two-sided bungee cords and anchor clips adjust the Poncho's hood to keep out the elements. The front zipper is covered with fabric to prevent water from leaking through. Seams are stitched, then sealed and reinforced with a durable polyurethane cover. The Petrol Rain Poncho is constructed of polyurethane-coated 200 denier nylon. When not in use, the Poncho fits into a handy drawstring net mesh pouch for easy storage and transport.

U.S. list price for the new Petrol Rain Poncho (PRP-2) is $65.00. For further information on this and other Petrol products, visit or contact: Petrol, 709 Executive Blvd., Valley College, NY 10989, Phone: 845-268-0100, Fax: 845-268-0113, Email:
