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.

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.

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.
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.
