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.
Impressive - First impressions
From ckleerly of TR, South Carolina on 1/8/2015.
Here in SC, our weather rarely gets into the teens. So when my new Doobie arrived the same night we were experiencing teen temperatures, I had to give this a try. The goal of purchasing the Doobie was to lighten my 3-day pack weight and bulk. I combined my US issue bivy sack with my new Doobie because of the 15 mile per hour winds. A fleece cap along with my winter 1st layer was worn also inside the bivy and doobie. I'm happy to report that I maintained a comfortable sleeping temperature. Their Arctic Woobie would be needed for anything colder than 20 degrees.The Doobie has given me the flexibiliy I was looking for! I can stay warm by using my entire kit or adjust accordingly by reducing layers or hammocking if the temperature rises. The only negative is the price. $210 delivered is a real kick in the nuts however, I was able to meet my goals of reducing bulk and adding flexibility.

My husband loves it. Very warm.

This is a very handy item to have, packs small, yet is big enough to cover you and a friend. Very warm for its weight.

After 6 months of extensive abuse, my woobie in multicam has not ripped, faded, had frayed stitches, or developed any holes. This is one of the best investments I've ever made. The rhino skin material is solid. So lightweight, yet durable and water resistant. Within seconds of wrapping up in a woobie, you will notice decreased wind and near instant warmth. I have used it extensively around camp in 25 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and been completely comfortable with only a light jacket on. Well worth the money...I never go into the backcountry without it.
Worth every penny and more!
From Rick Lewis of Frederick, Maryland on 12/18/2014.
I bought a doobie to carry on day and overnight outings. I watched the video and read the description and reviews, looked at other video's on you tube and after receiving it, totally blown away. Like every other product I've bought from Kifaru, very tough well made, and well thought out product. SO WARM. Packs away to a great size and with the compression stuff sacks, easy to strap to the outside of my scout pack. I loved it so much I went out and bought a woobie for myself, and ordered 3 more doobies to give as gifts this Christmas.
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.
