Woobie & Doobie are designed to replace the USGI poncho liner
and are MUCH warmer. 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 Apex insulation on the woobie
and Doobie. 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.
From Thaddeus Cochran of Jackson, Mississippi on 11/28/2016.
Very warm, but because of slick fabric, could benefit from a larger size. If Kifaru would make this product in both King and Queen size, I would buy them for every bed in the house.
From Anonymous of Greenfield Center, New York on 11/17/2016.
The Kifaru Woobie is quite pricey but the comfort and versatility is well worth the price. It is a well built American made product (thanks Hong) that should last. Living near the Adirondacks, the saying here is "if you don't like the weather, just wait 15 minutes". So with that said, my review of the Woobie is that it's versatile as a blanket, a sleeping bag and a hammock under quilt. I now camp, hunt and hike with it in my pack. In fact, I bought a Kifaru compression stuff sack which is also well built to haul it in my pack. With temps dropping here during hunting season I have dropped the blind and use a rock and my Woobie to still hunt from.But there is also one downfall about owning one. Someone in the family will want one too. But don't skimp and buy them a cheap poncho liner substitute. Trust me, I found this out the hard way.
Nice Woobie. Price steep.
From Brian F of Colorado Springs, Colorado on 11/4/2016.
Nice Woobie and worked great for ground blind during archery season. Excellent detail and workmanship. Quality, construction & functionality vs. price is sketchy. Same general comment IRT stuff sack purchased at same time. Following purchase and use I called the office with questions abt their Slick Bag. Was disappointed when I talked to their representative about sizing. Bottom line...if you're 6 + ft, they don't make a bag to fit, even their labeled "long", and any question of a longer bag isn't even remotely entertained. Representative was curt and short. Considering their statement that each product is "built-to-order" how abt making a bag that is long enough for 6 ft customers. Their call...purchased a Wiggy's instead.
From Anonymous of Fort Collins, Colorado on 11/4/2016.
Comfortable, versatile and lightweight. Was key for my backwoods trips and shorter trips alike. Definitely recommend.
Woobie bigger better
From oldfrogdiving of Melbourne, Florida on 11/1/2016.
This is my second Woobie from Kifaru, I bought the first one while in Iraq 2005 (I think), at that time I hesitated about dumping the 95.00 but I couldn't have been happier and miles better than the USGI liner. I used it up until last month and pretty much slept in it every night even when back off of contract gigs. My dog took a likening to it too and ripped the lining in several spots but even ripped it still worked well but almost impossible to sew it. The new one is bigger with the same value of insulation and quality of sewing. The material works well keeps you cool in warm climes and warm down to about 40 degrees, when its colder then that I just use it in my intermediate bag. How can you go wrong unless the bit bigger compressed size is an issue? it isn't for me and I'm stoked with the new version, I have no doubt it will last another 10 years.Killer product for snivel gear in the field.
I was excited but ended up disappointed
From Kevin of Costa Mesa, California on 10/15/2016.
I was excited to try out my new Kifaru Woobie. With the $170 price tag and great reviews I figured it would be a hit. It certainly is constructed differently than a Milspec poncho liner. The Kifaru is only stitched around the perimeter which allows the shell to float around the insulation which traps more air within, which I assumed would insulate significantly better. The material looks sturdy but where the Milspec is more clothlike, the Kifaru material has more of a shiny, plastic feel and clings to your body more. This combined with the more "separated" nature of the shell and insulation, you end up getting tangled in the three separate layers, which is annoying.Construction and stitching are top notch (the only reason I gave it two stars). There were no snags or missed stitches and I like how there were attachment loops vs the milspec shoe laces that dangle off.I was somewhat disappointed in the bulk. In its provided pouch, its just as bulky as a Milspec and the poofieness of the air trapped within the woobie makes stuffing it into its pouch a bit of a spectacle and much more work than it should be. It would probably be better if I paid more money for a compression sack but for $170, it should be a significant improvement over Milspec, and its not.The dealbreaker is it just isn't very warm. I ran it through an overnight backyard test, with nighttime temps dropping to a balmy 61 degrees fahrenheit and I still got cold which is extra surprising since I'm a very warm sleeper. The next night I used a milspec for comparison and surprise, it felt almost as warm as the Kifaru and I didn't have to deal with the uncomfortable fabric and getting tangled.Bottom line is I'm always impressed by milspec poncho liners. Every time I use one I'm surprised how warm, comfortable and light weight they are. And for $20 they wildly exceed expectations and a real bargain. The Kifaru is the opposite. For $170 they should be a revolutionary improvement but it just isn't and in many ways, it's worse. I had high hopes, figuring I would end up with several Woobies and Doobies but unless it grows on me, that doesn't look very likely.-Kevin
The hype is real
From Matt B. of Pacific Northwest, Washington on 10/13/2016.
Super warm and crazy light. Tough to make room in the pack for extended trips for the woobie but awesome for long glass periods on shorter trips and awesome for the house. I try to get this in the pack for every trip that I can.
From Anonymous of Amity, Oregon on 10/8/2016.
This is an excellent piece of gear and I will be buying the warmer doobie when I have the money. Works perfect in my Clark Jungle hammock. :-)
From firstname.lastname@example.org of Tucson, Arizona on 9/29/2016.
Another incredible product
From Jon White of Flagstaff, Arizona on 9/20/2016.
Another outstanding product from Kifaru. Received my doobie today in the highlander print and was not disappointed. Great size to wrap up with when it's cold or use as a liner in your bag. This thing is CRAZY warm. Had it on for just a few mins in the house and felt very warm. As an ex infantry soldier I know the value of the woobie. This is an extreme upgrade. I've wanted one for a while and this doesn't disappoint. If you are on the fence just get one already.
From victor quinonez of Mill Creeck, Washington on 9/5/2016.
Great product. Doesn't smell. Keeps you cool or warm. Rolls up tight. super light weight.
Just buy it....
From Jake H. of Raleigh, North Carolina on 8/30/2016.
Oh, the woobie. The quintessential piece of gear for every grunt that's ever lived. We all love her. But this one.....this one's something special. She will easily keep you warm on the cold cold nights, and packs down to the size of a football with the right stuff sack. Good pillow, GREAT woobie. Just buy it. You know you want to.
Very good product
From Seadon Bradley of Crescent city, California on 8/27/2016.
I have only had the opportunity to use it once, I am quite happy with it. The only thing I would caution is it is not a space saver. I will probably try the lighter one for back packing. But you can't beat it when space and weight are not an issue.
From Anonymous of Leonard, Missouri on 8/21/2016.
This thing is a must have. I wish there was a king size version so I could get rid of all the crap my wife has on the bed and just use the Woobie. Super light and super warm. Very durable. A definite must for any sleep system.
From Taking the High Ground of Raleigh, North Carolina on 8/15/2016.
Truly an excellent choice for the field, camping, or home. Very light weight and compact-able. Warm and water repellent.
From Taking the High Ground of Raleigh, North Carolina on 8/14/2016.
Excellent choice. A must have for all grunts, active or retired. Lightweight, warm, and water repellent.
From Anonymous of Boise, Idaho on 8/2/2016.
This product is perfect for me. It's warm as heck and I don't have to worry if it gets a little dirty or wet. Years ago, at a winter camp, something came into our camp area in November in Chicken Alaska; it was pitch black. I heard what ever it was, and knew it was a critter. I fumbled around trying to get out of my fart sack in a hurry, knowing I was about to die. As it turns out, by the time I got out of that bag, the critter had gone. Anyway, because of that, I no longer use a tent or a fart sack. I lay down a ground pad with a ground sheet on it, lay 2 poncho liners on top of that, and fold it over. Obviously, I keep close to the fire. This Kifaru doobie is going to be great for that. It's a bit bigger in the handy stuff sack than I thought, but not enough to be an issue. I bought two. My wife camps the same way.
Great peice of kit
From Anonymous of Lincoln, Nebraska on 7/29/2016.
Wow, where has this been all my life. So many different uses. Quality is second to none. Super warm. Will always be in my pack and so will a doobie, combine the two and you have a versatile sleep system.
From Anonymous of Santa Maria, California on 7/26/2016.
I bought this for my husband as a Father's Day gift. He always does a ton of research before deciding on things he wants. It's pretty reassuring to me, when he tells me what he would like as a gift, that I know he is going to love it and that there is nothing better out there. It's so versatile. He uses it on the couch while watching movies, in the back yard while swinging on the hammock, even at the park to make the perfect blanket to sit on. It will be perfect for camping as well.What surprised me the most about this woobie is how much I love it! I think I use it more than him! I kind of want one for myself now. All in all this is a great product and I highly recommend it.
Best piece of gear I've owned!
From Thom Stang of Bethesda, Maryland on 7/26/2016.
The Kifaru woobie is the best piece of sleep gear I've ever owned. It is much warmer than the USGI poncho liner as advertised and packs down smaller if compressed. It is warm enough alone for spring and summer camping.I recently started hammocking and used a bungie kit to set up the woobie as an under quilt, a new role it fills magnificently. Overall, it's a very versatile product. You will not regret purchasing one; I'll be getting another myself.
Alternative sleep system
From Joaquin Courtemanche of Shelter cove, California on 7/24/2016.
I'm not a huge fan of sleeping bags, and hunt in a coastal area with temps from 40-100 degrees. I picked up a doobie in the hopes that I could replace my current sleeping bag and thermarest pad combo, I use the doobie with a luxury lite cot, I have never slept better in the woods. The blanket is large enough to drape over the sides of the cot and limit the heat seep that usually accompanies using an elevated bed. I'm a side sleeper and this is my preferred setup, this being said it is tough to pry the doobie out of my families hands as it is used for everything from Giants games to fourth of July fireworks. A great product that gets used year round.
The best woobie available! Awesome!
From Sgt. Baker 0352 of Cleveland, Ohio on 6/24/2016.
This is premium quality kit. Very light, very compressible, excellent loft recovery and stupid warm and built like you would expect from Kifaru. It really just can't be beat. If you loved the one your uncle issued you, this one will definitely wow you. Worth every penny.
From Matthew Howe of Portland, Oregon on 6/17/2016.
Very light and keeps you extremely warm. Might have to get another one cause the wife keeps stealing mine.
From Zachary Wyant of Bloomington, Illinois on 6/4/2016.
The blanket Is amazing! The Doobie is light and warm beyond anything I have previously owned. The double layer of insulation really steps up the heat rating
Even better than my original woobie!
From Anonymous of Arlington, Virginia on 5/29/2016.
Awesome product. Easily worth the money.
Woobie + stuff sack = Awesome!!
From Combatrock1371 of Boise, Idaho on 5/28/2016.
Purchased and used the Woobie as my sleeping bag for spring bear hunts and scouting. First time was used in a bivi with a Kylmit pad. Got into the 40's that night with rain showers. I was so warm I had to strip down to underwear and shirt. Stayed dry and toasty. Will be using again this weekend. My total kit including tarp shelter weighs less then 5 pounds.
From Michael Vandergrift of Charlotte, North Carolina on 5/8/2016.
Meant to buy the multi-cam version. Surprised when the Highlander version arrived. Was going to send it back until I checked my online order and found that I clicked on the wrong color.
Gear of the year
From Thomas Schmid of Berglen, Germany on 4/27/2016.
used it at -8 degrees C for 4 days ... Happy as a stuffed Pig 😊 Big in size - Monster in Performance - we need Kifaru in Germany - paid 230€ all in ( shipping & tax & custom suck )
Forgot to add the 5 stars
From Anonymous of Calgary, Alberta on 4/21/2016.
If you are hesitating and THINK it might be better/smaller than your poncho liner you are right. My new favorite piece of snivel kit.
Perfect for spring on the Camino de santiago
From Anonymous of Calgary, Alberta on 4/21/2016.
Wanted one forever and decided this was the excuse. Eeeeee. Pricey. But NO REGRETS compressible nicely in 5 string small. Very cosy. Exactly what you need in auberges. You will not regret it. Thanks Kifaru
From Anonymous of syracuse, Utah on 4/17/2016.
Haven't used the woobie yet, but I love my jacket. The size I ordered fits well. Comfortable to wear, I like the front pockets and the half zipper. Warm to 30 degrees. Great product.
Everything I asked for!
From Anonymous of 29 Palms, California on 4/10/2016.
I bought the Woobie as a replacement for my standard issue poncho liner. It's warm, light, and durable. It's been much more comfortable than I had anticipated. I recommend it to anyone and everyone that has a discussion about sleeping systems. Good Stuff Right Here!
From Matt Crowell of Boardman, Oregon on 4/6/2016.
warm and light, definitely get the compression sack to save space
U'd be a boobie if u don't buy this doobie
From Anonymous of Cameron, North Carolina on 3/26/2016.
On those cold nights here or there, this, along with a bivy, will do you just fine. I definitely recommend buying the stuff sack though to help keep it compact in your sack.
Way better than standard issue
From Anonymous of Richmond Hill, Georgia on 3/19/2016.
The Kifaru woobie is hands down one of the best pieces of kit that I own. Using it on deployment in Ukraine, it replaced my standard issue woobie, and I have been using it with my summer (light) sleeping bag. It gets quite cold in Ukraine and the woobie has kept me warm every night. It is extremely durable and I really like that it has a stuff sack built in to it. I am going to buy one for my wife when I get back from deployment. Highly recommend!
Warmer than you'll ever need in the lower 48
From Z Askins of Anchorage, Alaska on 3/6/2016.
I've had a standard woobie from Kifaru for 4+ years and it served we well from Afghanistan to the mountains of Colorado, except for a couple small tears and a need to carefully have it fluffed to maintain the insulation it has been a life savor.The Doobie is built to the same quality and while slightly bulkier is amazingly warm, word of cation, it is extremely warm, unless you're using this as your sole insulating layer, or are planning on sleeping in sub zero temperatures it will probably cook you out. Get the appropriate woobie for your environment.
Great quality and very versatile
From Michael Schrader of Kansas City, Missouri on 2/28/2016.
I have two of the Doobies. My wife and I use them as a back country bed(with one on top and one on bottom over our sleep mats). We have also used them as an under quilt in our hammocks. These things are very warm and much more versatile than a sleeping bag. Well worth the money. I haven't used a sleeping bag since these arrived. We have used them down to 15 degrees and we were plenty warm. I think you could use this like a 20 degree bag with out a doubt. Would also be a great bugout option due to its versatility and quality build. Seriously the amount of jobs this thing can do make it a bargain.
From Anonymous of Ardmore, Oklahoma on 2/25/2016.
Better than expected. Very light and very warm.
Excellent and very light, but kind of bulky
From McBride of Columbia, South Carolina on 2/14/2016.
This is an excellent piece of kit. Very light and very warm for its weight. It's bulky for a "poncho liner" replacement and takes up almost a third of my medium MOLLE II Rucksack. That's a lot of room I could use for other things - I try to get by for almost a week with a "three day" pack. It's a great substitute for a three season sleeping bag, especially when paired with a bivy sack. It is not inexpensive, but that is to be expected considering the quality of the material and workmanship and that it's made by hand in small quantities in the US. Overall, I expect the Woobie to last me many years and over time the investment will be well worth the up front cost. I like the Woobie enough to buy a pack that will have more capacity so I can continue to bring the Woobie along.
Worth every penny
From Anonymous of Akron, Ohio on 2/5/2016.
Bought this woobie as an upgrade from the us USGI poncho which I use for hunting, camping, and the couch lol. The Kifaru woobie is very light and the warmest blanket I have ever had or used. I like it so much that I sleep with it nightly. I have used it during deer hunting and while camping in our trailer which gets very cold at night. This blanket keeps me more than toasty. I was so impressed by the product I bought the lost park parka right after and love that product as well.
From Jon of Nashville, Tennessee on 2/4/2016.
My first Woobie purchase was to put in a bag for my wife's car to be used in an emergency. After she tried it out I ended up having to purchase again because she saw no need to keep in her car. You'd be amazed at how much this gets use.Quality is exceptional and it's warm. We are not hardcore campers - think more of a bunch of friends sitting around a fire during deer season and the wives and girlfriends all end up under either the Woobie or Doobie. Used as extra insulation in a 20 Degree Slick back and you will end up too warm. (unless you are on Everest or K2 - then you might have to go down to a 0 degree slick bag)
From Anonymous of Oxford, New Jersey on 1/30/2016.
I ordered this for a christmas gift for my husband. After receiving it we were impressed with how warm such a light weight "blanket" could be! We are considering purchasing another for a family member who is a Marine. I would highly recommend this woobie even if you have no intention on going camping, it is highly useful for when the power goes out in the winter! You will not regret buying this!!
From Anonymous of Jonesboro, Arkansas, Armed Forces Pacific on 1/23/2016.
I ordered this as a gift for my son who is a Marine. He says this Woobie is wonderful, is so warm and comfortable and just what he needs! He recommends it highly and rates the Woobie with 5 Stars!!!
From TREVA OWENS of ANNAPOLIS, Maryland on 1/21/2016.
From Schultzie of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina on 1/18/2016.
Got to use my woobie this past weekend (January 16-17). I used it as an under-quilt in my hammock with an old Cabela's 40 degree sleeping bag as an over-quilt. Temps got down to mid to low 40s. Warm all night. When temps rise a little I will use the woobie with no under-quilt and save myself a lot of space. Two of these might even be better than sleeping bags.
My Favorite Piece of Gear
From Jacob of McKenzie Bridge, Oregon on 1/11/2016.
Most people wouldn't get excited about a blanket, but that's because they don't have a woobie. I've had mine for several years now, and it is no worse for the wear in any way. I don't travel without it, and I also use it daily at home as a couch blanket. I often use this as my only piece of sleeping gear when I'm camping in reasonable conditions. I've been supremely satisfied with this product on every singe occasion I've used it, and if I happened to lose it, I'd replace it in a heartbeat. This is such a great product that when I decide to finally spring for a new sleeping bag, it's definitely going to be the Kirafu - thank you for offering such great products!
Doobie California Sierra
From Anonymous of Galt, California on 1/4/2016.
I recently had the opportunity to use my newly purchased Doobie in Kryptek Highlander while in the Sierra. I also purchased the stuff sack as well and it does an excellent job of compressing the Doobie's diameter down to fit in my pack. On to the Doobie: unbelievably light weight with exceptional warmth. It did a fine job of blocking the wind while I sat at a frozen lakeside. When the sun dropped, I used it as a bag liner in one of my 20 degree sleeping bags. It did a fine job of keeping me toasty warm. Highly recommended. If Kifaru ever does a Kryptek Typhon version I will definitely buy a second one.
Awesome! ...Buy it!
From Joe of Ferndale, Washington on 12/20/2015.
I use my woobie a lot more than planned. Awesome for throwing in a pack for a little extra backcountry insulation or at home when you sleep on the couch after purchasing a bunch of Kifaru gear and explain your bank statement to your better half.
Huge improvement over the old and a great sequal to the original
From James T of Littleton, Colorado on 12/20/2015.
I've owned the Older Version Woobie, Doobie, and the Artic Woobie. The new Apex insulation Woobie is fantastic. Warmer than the original. Id almost say as warm as the Doobie. The Apex is much loftier than the combat insulation. That comes with a size penalty but will take that any day. If your on the fence I highly recommend the new Apex Woobie its Kifaru's best yet.
From Anonymous of Tucson, Arizona on 11/30/2015.
Outstanding, multi-use item.. part of my daily load out for 72 hour bag and even finds a place for a nap with serious warmth to weight ratio... well designed and constructed!
Envy of Everyone
From J. Lewis of Fayetteville, North Carolina on 11/27/2015.
Long story short this thing kept me warm and dry during a pretty brutal training exercise. When I wasn't using it, someone on my team was asking for it. On top of that my wife likes it.
Great Piece of Kit.
From Aaron Pelouze of Colorado Springs, Colorado on 11/10/2015.
I have only tested the Woobie in the back yard twice, once at about 55 degrees and the other at about 44 degrees; both times it worked well as the insulation layer inside of a bivy sack.The pack ability is huge when you have limited space. The only thing that would be a nice addition is some kind of zipper. Keeping the sides closed to keep the cold out can be a bit tricky if you are using it inside of a bivy. The outer material is a little on the slick side and can cause the Woobie to move around as you move.
From Volk of Wilmington, North Carolina on 11/6/2015.
If you are anti-social, and plan on using this product in a capacity besides lone ranger bow hunting, this product is not for you. The second you whip out this bad larry, everyone in your team, group and probably people you have never seen before, will start popping over, asking to touch your fancy blankey. Hey man, where'd you get this? How much was it? Can I take a picture with you and this kryptec highlander future warrior advanced operational poncho liner? I just got back from using this for 2 weeks, mostly indoors. It is so damn warm I would wake up a couple times a night just to un bundle, which as we all know, is much better than waking up 30 times from the freezing cold. When I did use it as intended, in the wilds of the southern wetlands, It's water resistance proved more than advertised. You may be thinking it is a lot for a glorified poncho liner, but it is one of those things you buy once and early then cash in your "sleeping in the bush comfortably" dividends. I am a comfort junkie when it comes time to stop working, so take it from me, its a high quality product and a good investment. P.S. Hey Kifaru. Y'all should make a woobie that is extra water proof and non tear/rugged material on one side. Call it the Rhino Hide or something. Just a thought.
From Mike B of Reading, Berkshire, England on 10/29/2015.
What a great piece of kit. Woobie very light, and packs up really small, but don't let this fool you, it is warm, comfortable and much better than a quilt if your having a duvet day. Previous review say that they wish they had bought more, because it is one of those products loved by all the family!! Now it's getting a little colder here in the uk, there are more times when my lovely wife is using it, plus it attracts 2 golden retrievers!! Great kit definitely recommend
Awesome addition to your hunting gear!!
From Ricardo Uribe of Miami Beach, Florida on 10/29/2015.
Just spent 8 days in Wyoming elk hunting and the Kifaru Woobie kept me warm throughout the day between the morning stalk and the afternoon. It is super light to carry and would not leave home without it for any of my future hunts!!! Highly recommended!!
From travis duarte of centre, Alabama on 10/16/2015.
I am very happy with this and kick myself for not getting one sooner. The tie loops are helpful. I tie it to the bunk so it won't slide off. I have the woobie only and I cook in it. really happy with this purchase
It Woobie love!
From JH of Va., Virginia on 10/10/2015.
There are few things the military gets right when it comes to gear. Where cheapness is not a downside. The GI woobie or poncho liner is one. So I was optimistic to attempt to replace something I hold with such affinity. Well no fear, it is Kifaru is what persuaded me to purchase a "doobie". "Buy once cry once" is a saying you must keep in mind with most Kifaru gear but the more I get from here the more it makes sense. Impeccably made, quality materials and to me improving on the shortcomings that the GI issued ones had, like size and insulation. You can't go wrong with Kifaru. To me the best field gear with the best customer service on the planet. You get one thing u will be a Kifaru fan/customer for life.
take anywhere comforter
From William Moore of Terrell, Texas on 10/10/2015.
This is an outstanding product. it is like the comforter on my bed except I can take it with me anywhere and use it anywhere. On the ground ,in a tent, or with a hammock this Woobie makes it better.
Best piece of gear ever!
From Brady of Mesa, Arizona on 10/6/2015.
I first tested this gear by sleeping with my window open in the dead of winter. My room got down to thirty degrees and I was still so toasty that I sweated during the night! I love the Doobie soooo much. Everyone I have ever let borrow it wants their own and I keep telling them to check out Kifaru. Thanks for making such a great product!
Best snivel gear money can buy
From David of Ft Drum, New York on 9/26/2015.
Have had this on multiple deployments to Afghanistan and many field problems in Ft Drum this woobie is light weight and warm even when it gets wet it holds heat and it drys really fast I have had it for about 6 years now and its lead a hard life but its still a great part of my inventory would recommend it to any one
Great Piece of Gear
From Matthew Nye of FPO, Armed Forces Europe/Middle East/Canada on 9/21/2015.
I went with the multi/tan and it's a versatile combo for the field. Very warm, you can pretty much replace your light bag with this woobie. I also like that the stuff sack is integrated. The only thing I'd like to see added would be cinch straps on the stuff sack to compress it further.
Awesome bit of kit
From Aidan Hoprne of Catterick, England on 8/24/2015.
Bought this item as an alternative to a issued poncho liner, item is warm and cozy, great for curling up into or wrapping around when shattered. Wife has tried to steal it on multiple occasions and wants her own if only she could get one in a non military colour.
No More Freezing At Night
From Bob of Atlanta, Georgia on 8/14/2015.
My old Vietnam-era poncho liners were getting pretty thin, so I finally upgraded to a Woobie. Wish I had done this years ago, as it would have saved me from a lot of shivering up in the mountains in the cold hours before dawn.
From George Nelson of Geneseo, Illinois on 8/7/2015.
Excellent quality and great price. Great for home or camping. Very warm and wind proof.
From Anonymous of Mobile, Alabama on 7/31/2015.
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
From sean of pocatello, Idaho on 7/25/2015.
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
From Anonymous of Perth, Scotland on 7/13/2015.
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.
best in class
From Doc of Los Angeles, California on 7/7/2015.
I took my new woobie on an aircrew survival exercise in the high Sierras. Everyone who depended on those ridiculous mylar space blankets froze. I was comfortable. It is warmer and compresses smaller than the old GI issue poncho liner, though a lot bigger than a space blanket.It is the best I have seen.
From A Nuffer of Fallon, Nevada on 7/1/2015.
This is one you don't want to leave home when you go out. The best cover I have ever slept under.
Highly Recommended Poncho
From Dex of Santa Clara, California on 6/30/2015.
What an excellent product! I purchased this based on reviews and recommendations. It was fielded perfectly and is a highly recommended supplemental sleeping item. High warmth and low bulk product.
From Anonymous of Irvine, California on 6/29/2015.
Surprisingly warm. I initially ordered this during winter while deployed in Afghanistan as part of my regularly carried sustainment. The high warmth and low bulk saved me space in my ruck and let me toss out other bulky snivel. The built in stuff sack is amazing, but I used an OR dry compression sack to save more space. Also incredibly durable and the sewn loops made conversion into a shelter easy. 10/10 would recommend.
From Jim Gormley of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on 6/29/2015.
I took this too annual training this year- it kept me nice and warm. This thing is everything I hoped for and expected.
From Danny of Salisbury, Maryland on 6/28/2015.
Works as advertised. Warm and compact. Perfect.
Great piece of kit!
From Jeremy of Foothill Ranch, California on 6/26/2015.
I purchased the woobie based on other reviews I had previously seen on the internet. It lives up to all the reviews that are already out there. I used this instead of my issued sleeping bag during my two weeks of in the field annual training with my Guard unit. Evening temps dropped to below 40 F and the woobie kept me nice and warm inside of my tent. I only wore my PT shorts and shirt. It packs up well in conjunction with one of the Kifaru stuff sacks. I'll probably buy another for at home use and keep one for field use.
From Jared Agius of San Bruno, California on 6/11/2015.
Finally got enough use out of this outdoors I feel I can review. I bought this to replace my sleeping bag. I use a hammock when backpacking/hunting. a Bag can be a pain to get in and out of in a hammock. this works perfect. I feel its even warmer since the extra blanket on the sides wads up and insulates the sides even more. Also got some light showers one night without cover. even when wet I was totally warm underneath. Lightweight. packs up pretty small. could use a compression sack and get it smaller. When temps really drop I will put this inside my bag. One of my favorite pieces of Kifaru gear
From Anonymous of Olympia, Washington on 6/11/2015.
Took it on a trip to the Cascade Mountains. Easy to pack down and relatively compact. Kept me warm in sub 40F with heavy wind and didn't slap me in the face like the issue woobie. Definitely taking it with me on future trips.
From Ian Heikkila of Great Falls, Montana on 6/1/2015.
I haven't had a chance to test yet in the field, but very satisfied with the quality and design. As always a pleasure to deal with the professionalism at Kifaru.
From Anonymous of Paris, France on 5/29/2015.
The Woobie is exactly what I was looking for. I'm using it as an alternative 3 seasons sleep system (combined with my poncho) in central France (plain), and it's perfect !
Best Purchase Ever!
From Anonymous of Woodbury, Minnesota on 5/28/2015.
The Woobie is the best purchase I have ever made!
From Anonymous of Genesee, Michigan on 5/20/2015.
This price requires serious attention if you plunk down for the Doobie, I find no problems with quality or workmanship on mine. As far as staying warm in 35 degrees with a cold gusty north wind I can survive with jeans & Woolrich jacket. Only problem, real slick when you first receive it. The more I use that seems to be going away. You get what you pay for in this case.
Woobie & Doobie
From Bruce Carter of San Clemente, California on 5/1/2015.
I hadn't had my Woobie long and forgot it was in my pack on an Eastern Sierras fishing trip at the snowline/treeline. We were fishing partially frozen lakes and due to the drought, a campfire restriction was in place. On day three just after sunset I was started to get the chills and shivering when I remembered I had the Woobie. Within seconds I stopped shaking. Temps plummeted the next night and I stuffed the Woobie inside my sleeping bag and ahhhhh! I was toasty. I have since purchased a Doobie and it was too warm for the 30 degree weather I used it in. It'll be perfect for those colder trips though. These are terrific pieces of kit gear.
From Anonymous of Charlottesville, Virginia on 4/27/2015.
This is my second Woobie though this one isn't for me! I purchased this one as a gift to prevent mine from being requisitioned!
From Sean Nolan of manchester, New Hampshire on 4/23/2015.
Warm and comfortable, and without the cold spots!
From Anonymous of Folsom, Louisiana on 4/17/2015.
I love it, I also have a Woobie Express and my next purchase will be an Artic Woobie. Nuf said!
From Para505 of Columbus, Georgia on 3/28/2015.
I submitted a review over a year ago and wanted to follow up. The doobie has become my blanket for every where including my bed at home. I always have it. It has become my "woobie'. I even sleep with it with two 75+ pound dogs who scratch at it, etc and nothing has damaged it. I worried about durability and cost but let me make one thing clear: BUY ONE!
From Anonymous of Russellville, Arkansas on 2/18/2015.
I will tell you folks that when my wife and I finally decided to get a pair of woobies the price was a bit intimidating. We were wondering if the price was justified. It only took a week for us to decide that these are handier than a pocket on a shirt and money well spent! Your in store customer service was very helpful and constant. Many folks asked us if we needed assistance and if they could help in any way. My wife and I both appreciate that very much. I will someday be getting a Xing from you folks it will be my first Kifaru pack and boy am I looking forward to that! Thanks for everything.
From Chris Watson of hull, England on 2/12/2015.
I'm using the woobie out in the east of Algeria, where its hot in the day and cold at night.The woobie is lightweight and easily packable, its kept me warm without making me sweat or being uncomfortable. Its shown itself to be durable and ideal for use on remote locations.
Woobie Review-Only Poncho Liner to get
From Randall Spears of Centreville, Virginia on 2/2/2015.
I own two of them...that about says it all. Don't leave home without it.
From Scott of Seal beach, California on 1/24/2015.
I bought two Woobies. One for me and one for my son. I can't believe how great they are. They are incredibly light weight and warm! I am so impressed with the product, I have told several friends about it. We use them camping and on the boat. Worth every cent!
Highlander pattern is awesome!
From Barry Grall of Pacific Northwest, Washington on 1/24/2015.
I just received my Woobie in Highlander camo. The quality seems like it will live up to all reviews. I am very happy with this purchase.What I wanted to add is about the Highlander Camo pattern. I had wanted to order my Woobie in Multicam, but they were sold out. I took a chance and ordered it in Highlander instead. This pattern looks really cool and appears like it will blend into any environment in my area, (or most of North America).I wouldn't be surprised if this becomes the new favorite pattern soon and then they will be sold out too.Thanks guys!
Woobie in Highlander looks awesome!!
From Anonymous of Pacific Northwest, Washington on 1/24/2015.
I just recieved my Woobie today. It looks very much like i will love it and it will live up to all the reviews.
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.
From Kimberli Wyckoff of West fork, Arkansas on 1/2/2015.
My husband loves it. Very warm.
From Richard Steele of Chicago, Illinois on 12/23/2014.
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.
From Anonymous of Monongalia, West Virginia on 12/18/2014.
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.
It's that good
From Erik Wallace of Idaho Falls, Idaho on 11/22/2014.
Like many who wander the Rocky Mountains during the shoulder season between fall and winter, I've struggled to find the balance between the warmth and weight ratio, between bringing too much and regretting it and bringing too little and regretting it. Enter the Woobie. My struggle isn't over, it seems that it never really is, but things got a lot easier with the Woobie. I imagine that it will never leave my pack, shoulder season or not. It's that good.
Don't go out without it
From Paul Munday of Gillingham, England on 11/10/2014.
I was amazed at how light and small this packs up and very impressed with the warmth. I have only used my woobie indoors at the moment but it will be the first thing in my pack from now on.
Outstanding solution for military personnel
From John Daley of Princes Risborough, England on 11/1/2014.
Hi, outstanding bit of kit. Totally replaces a sleeping bag for summer, is lighter, more flexible and allows easy exit tactically. You can also use it as a wrap and still be tactical, because its camo and just throws off if anything happens. I used to use the US issue poncho liner but that is not warm enough, Doobie is warm enough spring through autumn and packs smaller than a snugpack bag. I never put anything else in my bergan now.
Top quality!! Ultra cozy!
From Anonymous of Bath, England on 10/20/2014.
Sheer quality!! This thing is so comfy, cozy and warm my mrs wants the doobie! Very well made and worth every penny! Thank you kifaru from the UK!!
From Gregor of Whitehorse, Yukon on 9/28/2014.
This one I bought for my son, now we both have one and can go sheep hunting together. Good to about 50F on it's own and very versatile, Well made, large enough to use as a warm weather sleeping bag and useful in wet weather. The camo makes it a great cover wrap when glassing...keeps you warm while sitting. I really like it, and take it on almost every trip. Good to extend the warmth of a light sleeping bag and you can even use it as a poncho liner!
From Anonymous of fort worth, Texas on 9/11/2014.
quality made piece that is perfect for all types of outdoor activities (hunting, camping, traveling). lightweight, compressible, warm, packable. and great for around the house too during winter months. in texas, can be used outdoors for all but a couple months a year ... and in those colder months, can be used as a liner with mid weight bag to increase warmth. all USA materials, and USA made. love it.
From Mike P of SOUTHPORT, England on 8/10/2014.
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!
From Justin Gardner of Brisbane, California on 8/1/2014.
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!
From Bruce of San Clemente, California on 7/27/2014.
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.

From Anonymous of tulsa, Oklahoma on 7/24/2014.
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
From benvr8 of Hillsboro, Oregon on 5/24/2014.
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.
Worth The Money
From Brian Krupp of Evanston, Wyoming on 3/19/2014.
I struggled long and hard about buying one of these woobies and am glad I did, they are simply amazing. So much warmer, lighter, more compact and durable than a standard USGI woobie. My wife who is notoriously cheap was not too happy to buy one but now readily admits it's worth it and is wanting another one. If you're on the fence I highly recommend it!
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.
From SSG Lynn of clarksville, Tennessee on 3/22/2013.
I used mine in Afghanistan. This thing was a life saver at O.P's and on 48/72 hour missions. Way warmer and a lot tougher than the G.I woobie (poncho liner). Worth every penny.
7/29/2016 – Does the rhino skin shell on the woobie/doobie use polyester fabric at all ? I would very much like to purchase a couple . . .
Response From Kifaru Intl.: The Rhino skin shell on the Woobie/Doobie is made of nylon.
6/8/2016 – What are the dimensions of the woobie and doobie inside of the included stuff sacks?
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Aaron,The woobie is 9" wide x 15" tall x 6" deep. The doobie is 12" wide x 17" tall x 10" deep.
5/3/2016 – Hi Guys, Sorry to ask the same question twice. Is it ok to leave the Woobie in its attached sack, or is that still too much . . .
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi John,It is best to store the woobie uncompressed if possible.
5/2/2016 – With the woobies and the parkas, is it ok to leave these compressed for an extended period of time, or not so much? I'd like . . .
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi John,It is best to store these items uncompressed.
4/24/2016 – Will/can a woobie be stuffed into a MED SIDE POCKET? Large?
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Robert,The woobie will fit in a medium or large side pocket.
1/19/2016 – Have the original Woobie and looking at getting the newer type woobie. Since both the woobie and doobie use the apex insulation . . .
Response From Kifaru Intl.: Hi Steve, We do not offer a temperature rating on our woobies and doobies however I can say the updated Apex insulation is much warmer than the climaloft. I would estimate the temp rating for the woobie to be about 40 degrees Fahrenheit and the doobie to be about 20 degrees Fahrenheit.
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.
