US poncho liner. Designed during the Vietnam conflict, used even today. These are made in the 60's or early 70's, as they have the center seam. In rough condition!

This lightweight poncho liner was meant as a replacement for the wool blanket. Compared to the blanket, this is way more lighter, a bit warmer, dries faster and can be squeezed to a very small space. These are ERDL-camouflaged but mostly made in the 80's.

Originally put into service during the Vietnam war, this became the standard issue sleeping gear for hot climates. It is mostly meant to be used in conjunction with the rain poncho, as a liner. The process if very simple: tie the liner to the grommets of the poncho. Then button the poncho in a way it resembles a tube. Get in and sleep. The US Army states that the lowest manageable temperature is about +10C°.

Measurements about 157 x 204cm.

As said, this is very light at about 650g, and can be compressed to a size smaller than a football. Materials used are lightweight ripstop-nylon and polyester filling. Condition is used but serviceable. These are ERDL camouflaged and have the center seam, perfect to go with Vietnam gear.

The colours on these are very faded, and the general appearance is rough with missing tie-strings and possible tears.
