I have no direct experience of the conversion kit. Based on
what I've read and heard, the kit accomplishes two things.

I've never tried to use the poncho as a sleeping bag. I use
it only in a hammock, and have given up putting anything
between me and the hammock that can be compressed.
It's certainly large enough to make a bag. It has tieout
straps all around the edges, so in a pinch you could tie it
into a bag and sleep with the open seam down. At least that
would let you try it out as a bag.
