Our new Woobie Express is a 21st century poncho design that fills the void between a poncho liner and a parka. Unlike a poncho liner, you can throw it on for hands free warmth, and unlike a parka, you do not need to take off your armor/2nd line gear to put it on. After a long hump on the battlefield or in the hunting world, and for that needed warmth in a static situation, you can just rip the Woobie Express out of your pack and be good to go. The head opening is large enough to slip over any helmet, and the collar is high enough to go above the nose and ears when needed. There is an internal drawstring at the bottom front , and a cinch strap that wraps around in front of you from the rear, along with Velcro strips up the sides. Pull your arms inside to create a mitten effect for maximum warmth. These features allow you to control the fit and temperature. It all rolls up into it's own sewn on stuff pocket that can be used for snivel gear when the Woobie Express is deployed. We believe there is as lot of function and versatility here for only 16 oz..

We have been working on this for awhile now and feel we have that middle ground covered between other offerings out there that are either too minimalist or too bulky. This was primarily designed for military use where a guy could pull it out of his ruck and throw it on over his armor/2nd line gear without having to take any of his gear off. As we got into the prototype and testing mode, we realized that the Woobie Express had many more uses than that. It works great out in the field for hunting and anytime you are in a static mode such as tree stands, glassing for game, and even at outdoor stadiums for ball games.
