Unless you are expecting heavy rain. If the poncho liner gets wet it becomes almost useless.
Fear of this always makes me choose the heavier, but more reliable in wet weather wool blanket. Even when wet these work well to keep you warm. But boy are they heavy!
I bought the Jungle Blanket hoping for a lighter alternative. Since it advertised to be water repellant and pack small I decided to give it a try. I was almost expecting a thick emergency blanket, you know, the foil ones on one side, plastic on the other? I couldn't have been more wrong. And happy to be wrong!
The Jungle Blanket came in its own compression sack, which uncompressed was only slightly larger than a nalgene water bottle. Compressed all the way, I was able to squeeze it to about 2/3rds of its original size. The blanket feels "high tech." The exterior is made of a slick material that water beads off (to be fair, I did not soak it, so I can't vouch for extended rain on it) while the inside was a soft, not quite jersey-like material that immediately won me over. I slept like a baby in it. In the morning, I did not want to put it away. I was warm and toasty.
Great buy. Totally recommend it.
At roughly the same price and only about 25 grams heavier than the Rothco poncho liner (they both weigh approximately 1.5 lbs.), the Snugpak Jungle Blanket is far superior in quality: it has no loose seams and is made from more durable fabric with an antimicrobial coating on both sides to discourage odors and reduce the frequency of laundering. The outer shell fabric is also impressively water resistant. I held it under a running faucet for thirty seconds and the water ran right off, leaving no hint of dampness. Moreover, it packs slightly smaller than the Rothco poncho liner and comes with a sturdy, functional compression sack that will compact it smaller than a standard 32 oz. Nalgene bottle.
Since I didn't have both the Jungle Blanket and the Rothco poncho liner on hand at the same time, I can't say with absolute certainty which of the two is warmer, but I'm confident there's not a big difference. Either blanket should be adequate to keep warm down to about 50 degrees, assuming you have some way to insulate yourself from the ground as well (i.e., a sleeping pad).Read more ›
The Jungle Blanket also comes with a nice compression stuff sack. It's about the same diameter as a 32 oz. Nalgene bottle and you can compress it to about 6" long.
If you need a sleeping bag of similar construction and weight check out the Snugpak Jungle Bag. It can be unzipped to use as a blanket, so if you need a little more versatility you might want that instead.
Compared with a woobie the JB is a little smaller but noticeably warmer, and one side is water resistant and wind proof. The JB lacks the ties that allow you to secure a woobie into a poncho. I don't miss these as it's something I've never done, even though I've used poncho liners since the 1980s. I give the JB two thumbs up.

Not quite as warm as they want you to believe, but it does a pretty good job and keeps the water off. It's also easy to roll back up and put in the back it comes with.Published 24 days ago by Amazon Customer
