Now I am really confused could someone please write up a comprehensive article; one that shows a cost analysis and CLO rating of the following:
Standard issue US GI quilted poncho liners (several different weights)
Snugpak Jungle Blanket (as many different weights as there are currently available)
Kifaru Woobie (1 lb., 4 oz. with 2oz insulation per sq yd)
Kifaru Doobie (2 lbs., 2 oz. with 4 oz. / square yard)
explanation of CLO rating system:
OH never mind I am only joking
I'll just DIY what I actually need.
If you want to get really confused, click on the Underwoobie link in my signature
Oh boy....what did I start here....lol
That is very funny all the countless colors and patterns of poncho liners and will a dark colored one absorb more sunlight or be mistaken for a bear in Alaska's backcountry by a nearsighted hunter like Sargeirving's "Underwoobie" article warns. LOL
If I seriously worried about things like that my wife would send me to a shrink for some strong medication. LOL Then I would need more medication for dry mouth and the shakes. LOL
So I'll throw out another woobie substitute that I'm currently very happy with - the Mountain Serape by Hill People Gear. Insulated poncho, great coat, quilt and sleeping bag all in one.
Lots of info and user feedback in their forum too.
The Brothers Hill have all sorts of well made gear. I'm a fan.
