Brand new woobies! The best surplus that exists anywhere.
Features
  • Some time in the 1960s, someone had the idea to make a polyester-filled nylon blanket that would tie into your poncho to make a sleeping bag, and I hope they and their family are fabulously comfortable. This is the single best bit of surplus ever, hands down. It is lightweight, fast-drying, and phenomenally comfortable. It keeps you warm without overheating, somehow. Probably black magic, but personally I'm ok with that.

    The Marine Corps, ever needing to Be Better Than Everyone Else(tm), decided to make theirs reversible and with a zipper. This makes it a very lightweight summer bag or a bag liner in addition to being usable as a regular woobie.

    Normally the USMC tries to make something too good and they fall a little short. But they hit the mark on this one exactly. It is the perfect refinement of the perfect item.

    Size wise, this is a funky shape so its hard to describe. But its a little over 7 feet long and a little over 5'6" when opened fully. It has tie points at the corners and half way between those to tie into a poncho. the zipper makes it the equivalent of an extra long sleeping bag.
