    Here are some more pictures for you guys. Once we a price nailed down we will put them on the site and you will be able to sign up for a email notification when they are in stock.

    This is the KoreTemp Poncho over the poncho liner.

    This is with the 2" cinched down with shock cord to make a foot box. The rest of the cord is zigzagged through the tabs . Insert you sleeping pad then flip it over. The hood should be tied off to keep the heat in. You can also store you cell phone in the pocket while you sleep.

    The KoreTemp Poncho will also snap together to make a bivy sack for this set up.

    A cord lock will keep the shock cord tight and in place. The cord and lock store in the channel when not in use.

    Received mine this morning. It is even nicer than I expected. Much lighter and warmer, too.

    The sewn-in channels at either end are a great touch.

    Thanks!

    Got mine today.

    Holy Cannoli this thing is functional as a shovel.
    It's far thicker than I expected based on GI issue liners.

    You guys built a winner.

    Yup, thicker and warmer than I had expected also. You guys developed an awesome piece of gear. This is nice.

    Been looking it over and came up with this...
    Wearing poncho style there are two tabs on the front half I pulled around behind and connected to each other with a short shock chord. Then attached another shock chord to the tabs on the back half pulled around front.
    20190228_175208.jpg

    Above it's on the outside of the pocket so what I'm talking about is visible. But I run it through the handwarmer pocket and its cleans everything up.
    Pulls all the material closer to the body to trap air. 20190228_175235.jpg

    And if you leave it on the couch it's a cat magnet 20190228_163722.jpg

    Cool! I'll wait for the kit as I dont have enough chord to thread the channel and lace the tabs for bag mode.

    Thanks.

    True story:

    Our HS freshman son is running with the varsity track team. Meets, we're learning, are a lot longer than JHS meets, and further away, often far north. Brutal winter, late hours, and/or early spring mornings points toward COLD and WiNDY conditions on the metal bleachers.

    My fiery, adorable wife mused to me yesterday, "If only we had sleeping bags that could be worn like coats." Proudly, I produced MY KoreTemp Hooded Poncho Liner.

    And that was how the fight started :29:

    I suppose the fight was over who was going to be able to use the koretemp in that moment. Rather than sit smugly with the knowledge that you came prepared, I hope that you graciously told your spouse that you were looking out for her best interests with just the right thing to keep her warm. ;)

    I initially thought these were modded poncho liners but after I received mine I realized they are quite a bit thicker on the insulation. These were completely fabricated am I right @Jason or @IA Woodsman?

    Yes these were made to our specs they were not from existing poncho liners. They were designed to fit our KoreTemp poncho which is a different size than the existing poncho liners. They are thicker than a standard woobie also.

    What actually is KoreTemp? I've searched for it but can't seem to find it.

    I purchased the KoreTemp signal panel but didn’t know how it differed from ripstop nylon or silnylon. I really like the KorTemp liner and poncho design. Really good idea.

    The signal sack material isn’t different, KoreTemp is just the brand name of the system it’s part of.

    I just ordered my second KoreTemp poncho liner. Why you ask? My first one was plundered by a crafty little thief! I received my first poncho liner a couple weeks ago. I was really impressed with the build quality and the insulation is far superior to my regular GI woobies. The attention to detail with the double stitching on the tabs, hood attachment, sewn in channels, and hand warmer pocket is stellar. Very impressive piece of kit. I was quite pleased with the acquisition.

    Since it’s arrival, I had been enjoying it out back by my fire pit and throwing it on for early morning horse feedings and farm chores before work. The Missus, up until that point, had paid little to no attention, as I’m always playing with my gear and she has several woobies of her own. All was well, until last Friday night. We were sitting out back, watching the sunset and awaiting our afternoon wood ducks to come whistling in on our pond when the breeze kicked up. Me, being a southern gentleman and the chivalrous husband that I am, stepped inside and grabbed my Koretemp Poncho Liner off the peg by the door and offered it up. After a couple minutes, she found the hand warmer pocket and a little later the hood. I started getting nervous when she said her woobie didn’t have a hand warmer pocket and she really liked how the hood cinched up around her ball cap. She also remarked it was way warmer than hers and the insulation seemed to have better loft. Like me, She’s somewhat of a gear snob and after 25 years of following me around in the outdoors, she has become pretty opinionated about what constitutes and makes the cut of being labeled essential gear.

    After sunset, we came inside and I relaxed a little when she hung it back on it’s peg by the door where it has resided since it’s arrival. All was well, or so I thought. The next morning I get up, grab a cup of coffee and notice an empty peg by the back door where my Koretemp liner used to call home. I feel a dull ache in the pit of my stomach as I realize I had been robbed yet once again. She joined me a little while later with her coffee, wearing the pilfered goods. She simply smiled and asked if it came with a stuff sack and any repair materials. She suggested I might want to order me one as it was simply “...more betterer” than her old ones and was now hers.

    @IA Woodsman @Guy @Jason thanks for helping build a better mouse trap! I just ordered a replacement and I got myself an accessory kit this time for a little revenge! Actually, in an attempt to learn from my previous mistakes, I ordered two so I could keep one myself. Well done guys, a solid piece of kit. If your on the fence about ordering one, don’t be. Woobies have been a part of my essential kit since I was a Boy Scout and trust me that was a long time ago. The KoreTemp just made a great piece of kit “...more betterer” as my bride would say.

    It’s not the first piece of gear my lovely bride has liberated from me over the years. But I can say with 100% accuracy, she has good taste and only takes the good stuff!
