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.

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
From Chris Britton of Hastings, Nebraska on 7/17/2014.
Very Impressed! I will use the woobie as my warm season quilt as well as a layer to add during cold morning glassing sessions. I'll be buying the doobie very soon. Great piece of multi-purpose gear.
Best $150 Ever Spent
From Anonymous of Rochester, New York on 6/26/2014.
I've traveled with this woobie all over the world, in uniform and civies, and I take it everywhere. It's easier to pack away, warmer in the cold yet still comfortable during warmer temps, and doesn't smell like rot after months of use without washing. I insist that every Soldier of mine gets their own. Definitely worth the cost.
Superb piece of kit

Our household has multiple Kifaru woobies and weebies. Both products are absolutely great. We use them for everything! From camping to hiking to bonfires on the beach, this is a truly superb, well-made product. The combination of the monofilament insulation and water resistant rink-shell exterior is a winner.Highly recommend purchasing a Kifaru stuff-sack for your woobie, doobie or weebie as well. They compress perfectly for easy transport.
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.
