This here is called a Woobie, because: "Without one, you woobie cold!". A very nice light blanket that has more uses than you'd think.

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.

If you want to read more praise and interesting bits of info, head over to Task & Purpose to read their educational and entertaining article.

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 togehter 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.

Technical specifications

The liner can be compressed to a size smaller than a football. Materials used are lightweight ripstop-nylon and polyester batting. Being as these are genuine army surplus, the materials and overall quality is excellent.

  • Measurements: about 157 x 204 cm
  • Weight: 650 g

Genuine US surplus

Condition is used but serviceable. The Woodland ones are made in the 80's or later, Marpats are even more recent.

I got the Marpat one. It is a lot thinner that I thought. There is practically no insulation. I can literally see through the liner. I have several civilian copies, and those are thicker and warmer than the real deal. I still like the surplus one, though, as it packs very small and doesn't weigh very much at all... and is in frickin' MARPAT!

Addendum, March 26th 2019: I got the woodland version as well. Hardly used, smells like perfume, good value for money. It's as thin as the MARPAT one.

Just got mine. It really seems thin, that was no surprise to me, because I already had a poncho liner by the dutch army, which is just as thin. But regardless of the thickness, it holds incredibly warm! I think its because of the stuffing, because the blanket fills with air which gets warm and isolates you. I went for the marpat one, the condition is great! Wasn't expecting to get one that looks like new, no holes, no fading, looks like its never been used!

Woobie! Mainio varuste! Sain ilmeisesti hollantilaisella kuviolla aivan käyttämättömän. Käy varmasti kesällä makuupussinkorvikkeesta alustan kanssa. Talvella tuulensuojana oli erinomainen. Kotona torkkupeittona aivan ykkönen. Menee pieneen tilaan, eikä paljoa paina. Mukana tullut pussi on plussaa.

Legendaarinen woobie osottautui oikein näppäräksi laitteeksi. Olen melko varma, että edellisellä omistajalla on ollut parikin kertaa hauskaa tämän kanssa, mutta pesun ja pienen rapsuttelun jälkeen täysin käyttökelpoinen oli.

I'm a USMC Vet, and the one thing I had to have from my issued gear, was my poncho liner, aka woobie! I had my woodland one for 20 yrs, and it finally fell apart! I had to retire it! For as light as it is, it does a great job of insulating you! If you use it with the poncho, it makes an ok sleeping bag, but that hood can be a pain, if you don't put it on top of you! This one that I ordered, was damn near new! It was issued, because the tag was worn, but... whoever had it before, took excellent care of it! I love these things!

Some of the best money i have ever spent, you can use it as a lot of things but i mainly use it as a blanket during camping in the summertime. Tie it into a makeshift sleeping bag with the attached strings or just cover yourself with it and enjoy the supreme bliss of the woobie. Mine was in excellent condition with only a slight whiff of the previous owner.

Just received my Woodland liner. It was IMMACULATE! All the tie strings, no tears, no real wear. Just a few loose threads but you'll get that on anything. According to the SPO it was manufactured in '95. Couldn't be happier. Its the blanket version of the M65 liner and it is GLORIOUS!
