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 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 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.

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!

Warm and comfortable, and without the cold spots!

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.
