The Poncho Liner is also called a Woobie, because: "Without one, you woobie cold!". A very nice light blanket that has more uses than you'd think. Avoid cheap knock-offs, these are new and made in the USA!

Originally used in the Vietnam War, this lightweight poncho liner was meant as a replacement for the wool blanket. Compared to the blanket, this is a lot lighter, a bit warmer dries faster, and can be packed into a very small space.

Converts into a sleeping bag

After being introduced, the rain poncho + liner combination soon became the standard-issue sleeping gear for hot climates or general summer use. It's very simple to make a summer sleeping bag of the two:

  1. Tie the liner to the grommets of the poncho
  2. Snap the poncho sides together to make a tube
  3. Get in and sleep

The US Army states that the lowest manageable temperature is about +10 °C, i.e. a proper Indian summer rating. The poncho is waterproof but not breathable and it's generally advisable to try this out in your backyard or near home before committing to it on an actual hike.

Technical specifications

The liner can be compressed to a size smaller than a football. The materials used are lightweight ripstop-nylon and insulating polyester batting. The materials and overall quality are excellent.

Like the US camp bed, these poncho liners are a firm favourite with us Brits, too. I bought mine in woodland camo from a US Army kit shop on a base in West Germany in 1987 during the First Cold War, and it has been part of my field kit ever since.
Once again, the Brits were first in the field, or rather Far Eastern rain forest, with this concept: I also own three green lightweight blankets made of Aussie wool that Commonwealth forces used as part of the tropical sleeping system,. These are dated 1965 and have snap-fastening tabs for a poncho around the edges. But then our armed forces, particularly the ANZACs and Gurkhas, had lots of jungle warfare experience during and after WWII: Malaya and Borneo were two long-running campaigns which the good guys won in the end. In the latter conflict (1962-66), Commonwealth forces were also the first to use the AR15 rifle, and in 1965 an RAF Regiment liaison officer in Vietnam recommended it to the USAF Security Police to use for airfield defence there. The US Army subsequently adopted it for their operations up-country, and the rest is military firearms history....
Anyway, we called them 'American poncho liners' where I come from - 'Woobie' is a bit millennial snowflake Linus comfort blanket sounding for me.

You can't go wrong with the woobie. It's the first item I grab (second is a book) when "someone" sends me to sleep in the "barn" (downstairs sofa). It is also the core of my outdoor "intermediate" sleeping system: the woobie tied inside a British army pattern 58 rain poncho, both within a buttoned-up NVA shelter half, everything neatly rolled up and carried in a Falklands-era NOS poncho roll. These woobies here are a tad on the pricey side, but, hey, they're brand new, and they'll sure last longer than me and, maybe, you.
