Are poncho liners still in general use in the US Military
Discuss Are poncho liners still in general use in the US Military in US on The Army Rumour Service; Just curious,
Are poncho liners still in common use allowing for newer sleeping systems warm clothing etc and where are they carried?
Just kept in base areas like a combat duvet or carried in Rucks ...
In my experience of working with the US Army, the 'woobie' is still issued (now in UCP digicam) and widely used. During the summer months - when much of the US is stifflingly hot - sleeping on a cot under a poncho liner is a much more comfortable proposition than sweating away inside even a light bag.
Generally carried in the ruck, or kitbag when in barracks.
