The word “Woobie” is used to describe a child’s security blanket, or something that helps you feel secure and comfortable. It’s also commonly used in the military as a name for the USGI Poncho liner, which might provide the same function, only for adults. I’ve used a USGI poncho liner numerous times as a blanket, ground sheet, throw, wrap; even to protect furniture when moving – its uses are numerous and varied.
Kifaru’s Woobie is an updated and modernized version of the USGI poncho liner. It uses Climashield Continuous Filament Insulation, the same insulation used in Kifaru’s Regulator Sleeping bag system. Specifically, Climashield Combat Insulation, which is the Berry Amendment version of their XP Insulation. It is a continuous filament fiber, synthetic insulation that is very compressible, thermally efficient, and does not need to be quilted, laminated or glued to the shell fabric.
