USGI UCP Woobie Poncho Liner
USGI UCP Woobie Poncho Liner

Woobie  /w-ʊbi/
(Plural: Woobies)

  1. (US, Childish) Any object, typically a blanket, garment, or stuffed animal, that is used simply for its comforting characteristics; a security blanket.
  2. (US, Military Slang) A Poncho liner

Although it's origins are somewhat hazy, around 1962 special forces in Vietnam got the first taste of what might be the comfiest piece of standard issue army equipment that would transcend far beyond it's original intended use. Made to be a liner for a wet weather poncho, the 'woobie' was the spiritual successor to the USGI wool blanket, as it fell completely flat in the horrifically humid jungles of Vietnam.

Even when sopping wet, the 3-ply quilted nylon blanket expertly traps body heat when you need it the most — and since it's quick to dry it probably won't stay wet for long anyways. Ask any soldier who's been issued one - its one of the better standard issue pieces of equipment the army hands out to this day. Many have even gone great lengths to keep theirs after deployment, and have tailored them into all sorts of different jackets to envelop themselves in it's warm embrace once again.

Use it as a wrap-around sleeping bag, a compliment to your bivy, a hammock blanket, you name it—when you want to be warm and comfy, you pull out the Woobie.

 

Care guide

Keep your woobie away from smoke and fires, the tag even warns you not to smoke anywhere near this thing, so they're probably not joking around. When laundering is necessary, use lukewarm water and a mild soap to clean.

Awesome liner

Keeps you at a nice stable temperature by itself, not too warm, not too cold. With a light blanket, keeps me nice and warm in a rack. Good sized, big enough to cocoon me at 5'11" and 200 pounds.

It's a liner! It's a blanket! No, it's a Woobie!

Throw away all of your clothes, sheets, duvets, quilts, blankets, towels, toilet paper rolls, or anything else in your possession that is thin and comes into contact with your body. Once your skin meets the rugged-yet-silky surface of the Woobie, any other textile just seems hollow in comparison. Why are you reading this? You could be like me - safe and comfy, except you're sitting there reading product reviews. Have some self respect, add this to your cart.

Surplus that doesn't suck!

Item delivered in immaculate condition. Super comfy. Now I understand why my buddies who were in the service stole these things when they left.

It's a woobie!

This is a nice poncho liner. Well stitched, soft, and just warm enough. Get one.
