Woobie & Doobie are designed to replace the USGI poncho liner,
are MUCH warmer and lighter (1 lb., 4 oz. vs. 1lb 12.8 oz for a new
issue standard poncho liner). They are also great as a sleeping bag
liner or ground cloth. Our Climashield insulation is continuous
filament - so strong that no quilting is needed. Plus, it has a
better "feel" and draping capabilities - no quilting, so there are
no cold spots. Coupled with our water resistant RhinoSkin Shell,
you get immediate warmth and protection. Best yet, the Woobie &
Doobie are very compressible due to the state of the art materials
Same great stuff we use in our sleeping bags.
Construction: Our proprietary RhinoSkin™ - the
lightest/toughest material available with an excellent DWR finish
for water resistance, and the reversible two tone color scheme
provides more blending latitude.
Insulation: We use ONLY the Climashield Combat
insulation. Continuous filaments provide superior strength,
moisture resistance, durability, thermal efficiency and excellent
packing efficiency as compared to down or cut staple
CARE & STORAGE
Cleaning: machine wash warm or cold with mild
detergent. front load machine only. no bleach. Tumble dry
warm not to exceed 120°F store unstuffed.
Short term: the built in stuff sack is just fine.

Superb piece of kit. Used it in the North West of England where the weather can be cold and damp at times. I keep it with me at all times. That impressed I am going to order a doobie as well.Excellent customer service from the guys and girls at Kifaru. Keep up the good work. I definitely recommend you guys to pals here in the UK.
Woobie and Doobie great stuff both!
From Cedric Chausson of PARIS, France on 8/9/2014.
I first bought a Woobie which I planned to use as a liner for my sleeping bag in three season backpacking trips. I found the thing is so hot I ended using it as my sole piece of sleeping cover during spring/summer camping. I found out that it was enough for me while sleeping with just a synthetic base layer, pants, medium weight fleece with hood and a cap. With this I weathered temperatures of 14-16 °C at night. It was sometimes a tad just because I am a cold sleeper (being tall and thin). But I much prefer sleeping under a blanket than in a mummy sleeping bag where I feel always constricted.Learning from my experiences, I bought a Doobie which I have used to sleep in 15-16 °C contained environments with just base layer on. I was really nice.The great thing with the Woobie/Doobie is that it is very versatile much more than a sleeping bag. Feeling a bit cold during supper, wrap it around you! Feeling like having a little nap during the day, just lay it down on the ground to have an instant siesta area!The tie-outs are really nice. I put light shock cord on some places in order to secure the Woobie/Doobie to me while sleeping because I move a lot and the material is a bit slippy (the only con I can find).The integrated stuff sack is nice but I tend to just stuff it in my Pointman, it's so compressible it fills in the empty spaces and secures the load.I plan to use only the Doobie from now on for spring/summer backpacking trips.Really great stuff!

I got this and immediately noticed how light and airy it was. It is built extremely well with extreme attention to detail. I honestly didn't think this would keep me warm because it basically feels like nothing....I was wrong, this thing is bad a**!!! Light as air and really warm, this Woobie was my first purchase from Kifaru and I am truly amazed! Superior, made in USA, and quality, quality, quality!!! If something ever happened to this, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one...honestly I would have paid more for this little piece of magic!!! Thanks Kifaru!

While backpacking in the eastern Sierras at the snowline, I found myself shivering at dusk while eating dinner. I had forgotten I had a Woobie in the pack for two days. Pulled it out, wrapped it around me and in 60 second the shivering stopped. I was toasty warm in under 3 minutes. My buddy saw the difference in my face and tried it, he's getting one too.

First purchase from kifaru. Couldn't be more impressed with my woobie. Extremely compact, more durable than I had anticipated and very warm/comfortable. What more could you ask for in a blanket
11/10/2013 -- The Woobie care instructions say to use front load machine only. What are the risks of using a top loading machine?
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Wrecking the integrity of the continuous filament insulation. Resulting in bare spots. Not good
3/9/2013 -- What is the temperature rating of the Woobie and Doobie
Response From Kifaru Intl.: DanWe don’t give temperature ratings on them, but by using them I would say that the Woobie is 40 degrees and the Doobie is 20 degrees.
