This is a genuine US Military Wet Weather Poncho Liner, also known as a “woobie blanket”. It comes in several camo patterns on both sides. These are more like a blanket than a poncho because they do not have a hole in the center for your head.
Originally designed to provide the Army with a lightweight, piece of equipment used as a covering or field blanket in any environment, the poncho liner provides additional comfort and warmth while involved in combat or field operations. The Poncho Liner is an extremely versatile and useful piece of camping, hiking or survival equipment.
Since they don’t have a head hole in them, the wet weather poncho liners make a good recreational blanket. Another great trait of these Poncho Liners is they dry quickly and easily if they happen to get wet.
Besides using as a poncho liner, it can also be used for:
- A sleeping bag liner
- Picnics or football game blankets
- In your car trunk for emergencies
