You're looking for a poncho liner. "Woobie" is the nick name for it.

If you want to get real fancy, you can get one with a zipper.

Take a look at the Kelty Salida 2 is what my search-fu came up with.

Originally I was going to recommend the REI Half Dome 2. I've had mine for years. You can shave weight by ditching a ground cloth if you want but the weight over all is a bit higher than you commented.

Your price range will drive the options available, your weight requirement will limit that even more. If you want to use this as a Bug out type tent keep in mind the quality, uses and durability of what you're buying. I do understand a sealable tent is good to keep out bugs and weather.

My personal BOB 'tent' is:

  • an army poncho as the tent (Doubles as a...poncho/shade/rain catchment/litter/sack)
  • with some special fit poles (to turn it into a free standing tent)
  • coupled with a multiple use casualty blanket [edit] as the ground sheet, can also wrap up in it too. It can be used for most of the same uses as the poncho.[/edit]
  • a modified poncho liner (I added zippers around it and in the middle to make it more like a sleeping bag. You could use a heavier duty SOL Bivvy instead
  • and a Therm-a-rest Z Lite which can be used as a seat too.

    I've used all of the above in various weather and stayed warm and dry. Colder weather I'd just keep a few layers of clothing on. Warmer weather I'd just layout on top of the poncho liner and be just fine. I do like the ability to just jump the fuck up and go into action without being impeded by zippers.

I always carry a "Woobie"

Those issued TA-50 bags get handed out to dozens, maybe hundreds of SMs over the course of their life, so it's not really a problem here. They're mostly just a place to stuff your body when it's balls cold, along with the clothes you're wearing (but not your boots) and a woobie.

If it's not balls cold you're usually just lying on top with mosquito nets over you.

No clue if this is going to be helpful, but I agree that those clamps will rust if they live outside and I'd like to provide some ideas from a campers perspective, as we like hanging tarps. All of these options need some small rope/paracord/bungeecord/whatever and something like an stainless eyelet screwed into the post, though they end up being simpler mechanically and easier to adjust.

  1. Try to find a blanket with corner ties. I don't know if they have another name but they look like the tassle things on poncho liners.

  2. Generally only tarps (not picnic blankets) have grommets but its something to think about. You can even buy grommets on their own and sew them into the blanket of your choosing if you are handy with a sewing machine. High end camping tarps like this aren't like the ones at walmart and have reinforced corners, often with D-Rings. Not cheap though. If you like stuff like this there is other fancy hardware from Dutchware that make stringing it up easier.

  3. Low tech and versatile, you can use the method campers use to string up a tarp when the corner rips out. Get a small round object (a rock or something) place it into the fabric from one side and tie a knot around it from the other, it will look like this

  4. Last one doesn't have traction in camping that I know of and I've never used them before, but something like these clamps might be worth a shot for the price.

    Edit: fixed the last link

    Good luck!

Just going over what I've seen on your list, there's a few things I would leave out or at least have shipped to myself later on during the hike:

TP: Ditch it, Just stick with wet wipes (more luxurious and there's usually TP at shelters)

Waterproof matches: Not really needed. One of those things I ended up tossing. Mini Bic lighter was plenty for sparking fuel.

Solar Panel: I'd stick with an Anker battery. Lots of foilage on the AT, sun is spotty at a lot of spots on the trail but YMMV. I didn't have many electronics, just an iphone I kept off during the day. Would recharge it when I got in town.

Kelty Cosmic 20F S. Bag: During cooler months (March, April) it may be helpful but if you're doing a north bound hike, you'll likely want to swap this out for an Army Poncho Liner. I used this exclusively with a sleeping bag liner for warmer summer months (May, June, July etc).

Water: 2liters is plenty. I normally carried just 1 liter and would top off at streams as I hiked. Lots of water on the AT but you'll learn where the dry spots are as you hike along just listening to other hikers and local knowledge.

I would recommend a small FM radio that takes 1 AA battery and some small headphones/earbuds. That's just an example, there's plenty of cheaper options on Amazon. Kept me sane when pounding out mileage during the day. Sometimes I found myself completely alone at times. Hearing a voice on the radio is amazing! haha

Good luck with your hike, I never finished mine due to a knee injury. Made it to Virginia. That said, I learned more about myself and hiking abilities in the first week than I would have imagined.

u/Franks_friend_Huey · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

This might fit the bill. Every 11B on the planet will agree.

ETA: $46 is far too much. Check out a local Army Surplus store.

u/Vp7799 · 2 pointsr/camping

What is the difference between the items linked and this? I have been poncho liners aka woobies for long time and they are great.


u/ChetManIey · 2 pointsr/backpacking

It's bulky (even with the compression bag) but good enough as a standard sleeping bag, the coldest weather I used it was a little below freezing in a tent and it did fine, the link you gave claims down to -50*F, I find that hard to believe, but I'm sure someone else can chime in on the colder temps. If it were me, I'd go with something else.

Also, while of the subject of military gear, I would like to say that a poncho liner + poncho is a match made in heaven.

u/WompaONE · 2 pointsr/backpacking

As everyone else has said, ditch the sleeping bag.

Unlike everyone else, I offer a solution.

The poncho liner aka "the woobie" is the greatest creation on earth. I got one of these while I was in the military and have dragged it around the entire earth with me. Soft, perfectly warm, lightweight and highly packable. I don't know how this secret hasn't escaped the military. I will send you a link, you won't regret it!

u/mk2ja · 2 pointsr/bugout

> Emergency Blankets - I carry one but I also have an emergency bivy. You would probably not need it with a hammock but I will always carry one.

Do you mean like a bivvy sack? Or like a poncho liner?

Just wondering how/if you'd use the sack with a hammock, or if you just meant … something else. I dunno.

u/p8ntslinger · 1 pointr/Military

This one

I'm not sure if it is true mil-spec or military surplus, but it sure is comfy.

u/-AC- · 1 pointr/preppers



You probably can find in a surplus store too.

u/BangTheDrumLoudly · 1 pointr/Military_Surplus

Can you tell me about the HUMVEEs? I thought they can't be sold to the GP. Poncho Liners

u/tiercel · 1 pointr/Hammocks

As for warmth, best easy solution I've found is to take a regular bed comforter (Queen) and lay it into the hammock. Pull the edges over the sides of the hammock (you're inside, so no worry about dragging the dirt) so that you have about 2 feet on each side, with the rest tucked into the middle. Sit into the hammock, lie back, and put a pillow behind your head (and one under your knees if you find your legs hyper-extend during sleep sometimes, causing slight leg discomfort). Then, cover yourself with a poncho liner -shop around for a good deal- which keeps you from getting too hot or cold... the perfect hammock companion. Finally, cover yourself with the sides of the comforter hanging over the sides, kind of like a burrito. For really cold nights, I will add a fleece blanket from your favorite team or show before the poncho liner. For really hot temps, I throw a battery fan on the tarp line above my chest, and it keeps the poncho liner cool and fills the hammock with a cocoon of cool air.

I have used this setup indoors and outdoors, and it has kept me warm and comfy in weather down to 10 degrees... and I sleep in nothing but boxers outside (just add a ski mask if outdoors that cold to keep the nose from freezing). The comforter acts like an underquilt, so the cold breeze on the hammock is not noticeable, and the whole setup is a fraction of the cost my friends have spent for much more uncomfortable nights of sleep.
