    Our Military Issue Wet Weather Poncho Liners are divided into three categories: New, Very Good and Used. See below for a description of each.


    New/Like New - This means the Wet Weather Poncho Liner was received by us still in its original packaging or there are no visible signs of previous use. In many cases, an items looks new and unused upon inspection, but to be sure, it is included in the Very Good Category. These may have dust on them or have visible creases from storage by the Military.

    Very Good -
    This means that the item either appears to be in an unused condition or has slight marks that show it was either issued and stored or was used several times at the most. There will be no tears or rips in the fabric and all ties will be in fully functional condition. The coloring will be bright and non faded. There may be dust on or folds in the fabric showing where it may have been stored for an unknown period of time.

    Used -
    This includes everything else, while still assuring that the Military Wet Weather Poncho Liner is fully functional. There may be minor rips or tears in the material, though they would be small. There also could be some slight discoloration or signs that the poncho liner has been washed, which does not effect the functionality of the liner. In short, it is fully functional but will likely not look new. There may also be signs of wear in the corner and side ties. However, again, in this condition the Poncho Liner is fully functional and will do everything it was designed to do when new.

    In a dramatic revelation that is sure to rock active duty military and veteran communities all over the world, the Pentagon quietly released guidance that directs Central Issue Facilities across all US military activities to recall the “poncho liner,” a stuffing-filled nylon blanket which is perhaps the most popular and widespread piece of military equipment ever issued, and for commanders to ban the use of ones purchased on the civilian market. These unprecedented actions are reportedly being taken due to troop safety, budgeting, and climate change concerns.

    The poncho liner is a piece of field gear originating in the United States military and intended to provide warmth in mild temperatures when used as a field expedient sleeping bag. It can be attached to the standard issue poncho by means of ties which are fastened to the poncho’s eyelets. The poncho liner consists of two layers of quilted nylon encasing a polyester loft filling.

Not all poncho liners are created equal, so I should have a big caveat on the instructions 🙂 All the PLUQ’s I’ve made were from surplus military supply, and some of those were in better shape than others. New, non-military liners are even better (thicker, better fill) at keeping you warm. The Climashield or Primaloft fill can help a lot, so long as you keep it from compressing under the hammock (you have to make a sort of differential baffle between the inner layer, insulation, and outer layer). Without any insulation, I feel very comfortable at 50-60°F. Adding insulation helps it go into the mid 40s. Poncho liners are heavy. I think mine was 28 oz. I think where the PLUQ has a benefit is for those looking for an inexpensive, easy to make, entry-level under quilt, especially if you can get the poncho liners for a good price.
