    Lots of info and user feedback in their forum too.

    The Brothers Hill have all sorts of well made gear. I'm a fan.

    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
    The Underwoobie is more of an attempt to add the functionality of an underquilt to the myriad uses of a standard woobie. The materials are nearly identical to those used by Kifaru. Of the three, the Hill People serape has the most functionality as an outer garment, and its about on par with the others as a blanket or sleeping bag. And, IMHO, in addition to the functionality as an underquilt, the Underwoobie also has more functionality as an emergency shelter. Its more "back country" gear than most hammock related items are and as such may be the only hammock specific piece of "back country" gear out there.

    So I bought a woobie off Ebay and got the message today that it has been shipped. I was going around to everyone at work today and telling them "Man, I cant wait to get my WOOBIE!".
    There were a few Ex military guys who knew what I was talking about, but mostly I just got funny looks....haha.
    One lady asked me if I got a cat....weird.

    Hahaha imagine her face when you tell the woman that you stuffed that woobie in the bottom of your pack for a few hours, then slept on top of it all night for warmth! 😁

    You may be getting a nasty email from a PETA rep!

    I usually pack one as they do make a great summer TQ although they are a bit short for me ( I use military issue ). When its cold I can not sleep with a watch cap or balaclava on ( they end up coming off or get twisted ) so I loosely wrap the poncho liner over my head leaving just enough of an opening to breath thru.
