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.
Good to go
From Slappy068 of Parts unknown, Afghanistan on 1/15/2014.
ok,Over 20 years of hauling/carrying high speed light weight military issued gear around third world countries. This is by far the best poncho liner/woobie I have ever used. You get what you pay for tough, warm, and light weight. Need I say more. My wife and kids have stolen this for personal use. Once recovered it is soon taken again. Good gear is a must when your ass is on the line.Semper Fi
Warm and light
From Para505 of Columbus, Georgia on 11/25/2013.
Just received my Doobie last week. I got a chance to test it out this weekend in 30 degree weather. This was a great choice. I slept very well in it. I hate sleeping bags and get way too warm in them and having to get out of one in a hurry is a problem. I hemmed and hawed for a year over getting one. Now I am going to get a Woobie for the warmer months!
hunting survival pack gear
From jeff Fjelstul of Kenmore, Washington on 11/14/2013.
I have the Doobie, which I love, but found it too bulky to fit in my hunting survival pack. So, I got the Woobie to fit in my dedicated hunting survival pack. I'm trying to keep my hunting pack to the minimalist size and weight possible yet still have the gear I need to be relatively comfortable for that unintended overnight stay. I grab the Doobie if I am intending to stay overnight or if I.m sitting in the deer blind.
From 4N071 of San Antonio , Texas on 7/4/2013.
Got mine prior to heading down range. Nit picky stuff first. It's "loud". The material rubbing together makes quite a bit of noise. If you don't wrap yourself in it, it has a tendency to slide off in your sleep. Easy fix, lay on it, problem solved. That's it for the negatives. This thing is lighter than any woobie I've ever had. Also it compresses down to almost nothing. Although if you just have it in its stuff sack without compressing it makes an outstanding pillow. And having the sack attached is awesome. I didn't get it wet, so I can't vouch for that. It's incredibly warm though. Even coming out of a stone cold pack, it only took a minute or two to warm up. My sleep set up was a trekker mat under a softie 3 Merlin bag with the woobie as a liner. Woke up to find a my water bottle frozen by my head. No ill effects to me at all. Others had the issued woobie and didn't fare as well. I was impressed! Had to order another one though. (Girlfriend stole mine after using it during my R&R) $130-$150 is a LOT to pay for a woobie, but I have to say I gladly paid for a second. Well done, Kifaru!
A Must Have Piece of Equipment
From Dave Shepard of Veradale, Washington on 6/22/2013.
Used for 5 days and 50 miles on a backpacking trip in the Umatilla National Forest in Southeast Washington. Weather conditions were a near-constant down-pour with temps in the 40s and 50s. The Woobie got very wet and so did I, but it kept me warm every night -- even when a fire was totally out of the question. This was, without doubt, the single most important piece of equipment I had in my pack.
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.
