This is the same size as our 52" x 90" (132cm x 229xm) Flat Groundsheet.
When in groundsheet mode the outside of the poncho goes towards the ground. The hood will be underneath covering the neck opening.
Fitted Hood with visor keeps water off your face.
Waterproof zipper at the neck for venting.
Half length separating zippers at each side ensures the sides can't blow open in the wind.
Elastic belt at the waist allows you to snug the poncho around you for warmth when needed, or leave it loose for air flow.
Fully taped seams! No seam sealing necessary.
Coverage down to about mid-thigh with a small backpack. For more coverage pair with Rain Pants or a Rain Kilt.
The poncho width covers to mid-arms. Expect wet arms. Please note, a poncho may not be suitable as your only rain gear in colder weather.
All Zpacks gear has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.

- Arc Haul Zip
To be used with my Arc Haul Zip
I have been eyeing for this combo product for over one year and finally placed an order. I have purchased a good number of hiking and backpacking gear (Duplex tent, Arc Haul Zip backpack, vertice rain pants and jacket, etc.) from Zpacks and very familiar with Dyneema. I have no doubt that I'll love it. In addition to the Dyneema material used for the product, Zpacks' quality and the versatility of the product, the one major reason I bought this is that, when I use it as a poncho, rain won't fall between my back and the backpack, preventing my back from getting wet really quickly.
LOVED the poncho on my 500 mile section of the PCT this year
"LOVED the poncho on my 500 mile section of the PCT this year... it's one of my top 5 favorite pieces of gear!!! I used it in a downpour at the northern terminus as I completed 7 years of section hiking the PCT."
It’s the hardest-working piece of gear I own.
"I used the Zpacks Groundsheet-Poncho for my 2015 PCT hike, and it remains my favorite piece of gear, hands-down. Even with 3000+ miles on it, a couple of accidental burns in it, under several different tents, and despite it making me look like a weather balloon when I wear it, I LOVE it. It’s the hardest-working piece of gear I own."
