About Poncho Outdoors

Poncho is a direct-to-consumer outdoor apparel brand based in Austin, TX. Poncho launched in the summer of 2018 with a newly-designed, better-fitting fishing shirt that’s made for the outdoors. We’ve grown dramatically since. Our aim is to build functional clothing that has everything you need, and none of the stuff you don’t. Poncho is also building a community of people who love the outdoors.

The company is backed by venture investors and was founded by Clayton Spencer (UT BA, BBA ’03, Stanford MBA ’11).
