Lastly, it is a little heavy and bulky for serious backpacking. I keep it on me for preparedness, but in the interest of saving a few ounces I'd probably go with something made of silnylon instead. This is the sort of thing I'd keep in my car.
I'd probably recommend this, if you were going to be out in the rain for a long time, especially standing around with little to do.
I have checked at surplus stores and really, no poncho from military outlets are any better, but they do come with more grommets. They are also non-breathable poly that is extremely noisy. Not the best for situations when stealth is necessary. I love the light weight material and the quick dry breathability. If you are looking for an all around poncho/shelter, don't think ponchos should double as both. The have a hole in the head for one thing, which is what should be the first clue as to find a decent emergency shelter. When you are strapped for weight you should consider alternatives. Using your rain gear as a drop cloth or a shelter is not the best option.
Does not drape over a big backpacking backpack well. Might be exposed in the back a bit.
Tried using as a tarp over my bivy but it was a pita. Ended up just sleeping on my side if it rained to keep rain out of bivy hole
