Woobie & Doobie are designed to replace the USGI poncho liner,
are MUCH warmer and lighter (1lb, 8oz 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 Apex 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 used. 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 Climashield Combat insulation on the Doobie and Apex insulation on the woobie. Continuous filaments provide superior strength, moisture resistance, durability, thermal efficiency and excellent packing efficiency as compared to down or cut staple insulation.
WOOBIE 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.
Storage, long term: uncompressedShort term: the built in stuff sack is just fine.

Worth the money, its guchi kit for sure but super light and super warm. Your wife will steal it. I have a woobie, she has the doobie.
My favourite piece of kit!
From Brennen Brock of Peterborough, Ontario on 7/27/2015.
I bought this pretty recently and just got to use it in the field for five days, I purchased the Doobie and it's warm enough to replace my sleeping bag as well as freeing up room and weight.
best blanket ever

huge blanket which is awesome because I'm a big guy and I hate small blankets.
Great kit for very cold temps
From Eric Northwood of Winnipeg, Manitoba on 7/13/2015.
Bought the doobie. Used it so far as a hammock underquilt, a sleeping quilt in a tent, and wrapped up in it around the fire. It is very warm - looking forward to using it in the winter. The one downside to this that I've found so far is the Rhinoskin material is very crinkly. Quite loud - had been planning on wrapping up in it during rifle season which can get down to thirty below, but may be too loud to use in tight bush.
The mutt's nuts

I bought a woobie and a doobie to replace my ageing Ranger Blanket. The woobie is currently doing duty as a quilt on my bed in the Mess, and has kept me both warm and cool.I would recommend buying a good compression sack for it, as the built-in one is big enough, but only just, and offers no compression for when moving in the field. I'd also like to see an easy identifier to tell which you have, as the only way I can tell my woobie and my doobie apart is to lay them side-by-side and see which is thicker. Packs small, is light, plenty warm, good cam. Very, very happy using this at home, in transit accommodation, in a bivvy or in my hammock. Wish there was a good UK supplier. Recommend plus plus.
2/20/2015 – Hello! Please inform if it's possible to make a smaller Woobie (Multicam) version for a child?
Response From Kifaru Intl.: We did a run of smaller Woobies for kids called the Weebie. It was not a very popular item. We still have two left, one CB and the other is Multicam on one side and CB on the other. I could sell you one, just call Kevin ex. 13 303-278-9155.
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.
