    Poncho liner versus military wool..

    I have seen a couple or so replies that you thought the poncho liner was indeed warmer than a military wool blanket? Please give your opinions, I might be askin santa for one.. Thank you in advance!!

    Not sure I would say the PL is warmer than the wool blanket but it's definitely lighter and compresses smaller. For car camping, I'd use the wool blanket in colder months. Wouldn't consider the wool blanket for backpacking use though.

    They get a pretty penny for real wool blankets at the local surplus store. Stairguy puts one between the layers of his hammock in Minnesota, but he's pulking, not backpacking.

    I thought about buying one to make a frontier shirt, but I found some grey wool upholstery by the yard that is a little lighter.

    http://www.shrewbows.com/ Try a look see at this site... Might give you some ideas.. Not to mention I love archery as much as hammock camping.. They seem to go together very well.. I must admit I love my wolly blanket.. I found it hard to believe the p.l. was just as warm, but I have been wrong before..

    The orginal blanket shirt for Empire Canvas was first made from that pattern.
    I thought I would start there.

    Great stuff - I've got one of Ron's Longhunter shirts (and the hood) and love it. That's my primary garment for hunting once the mercury dips below 30* or so.

    For weight Vs. warmth I'd go with a woobie(poncho liner).
