It functions comfortably as a poncho, and the rear panel is extra long so that it can cover a pack. When not wearing a pack, you can fold over the excess material easily because there are Velcro attachments sewn in for that purpose. There is also an ill-conceived "stuff sack" sewn into the corner of the poncho (see customer image). It does work, technically, but it works awkwardly and I prefer to just roll the poncho up.
The corners have sturdy grommets (see customer image) which do what they're supposed to do, and the thing can definitely be used as a tarp. The dimensions are 4'7" by 7'7" and if the size suits your needs, this dual-purpose poncho should work.
I had occasion to use the poncho in a moderate rain today, and was surprised to find that it is not waterproof, but water resistant. I just went outside to check the mail, and in that time the rain was already bleeding through the material. I am so glad that I didn't find this out in a downpour on a trail in October.
Everything that I said above was true, but was said under the assumption that the material would adequately serve its main purpose. It absolutely does not keep you dry, something that a $2 emergency poncho can do quite easily.
Do not buy this unless you just want an inconvenient windbreaker that you can prop up as a parasol at the beach.
Yeah, I'm pretty mad about this one.
If you are a hiker who routinely carryies a large load, this poncho will will do a decent job of keeping the rain off of you and your pack without slowing you down. I like that it has the ability to be worn comfortably with or without the pack.
