    Default Genuine US Army Poncho Liner

    As per title.
    Swap my Orange handle Eka swede 8 for one.

    Must be a genuine one and not a copy.

    Ta,

    If you do get one,a word of warning,make sure if you machine wash it that you place it inside a pillowcase/wash net,otherwise you run the risk of damaging it,like I did with mine!

    You'll pick them up on e- bay (US) for 12 of those " buck" things + postage...... Should be with you in a week.....
    Around 12 as opposed to 25 if you buy here......

    +1 on sourcing them off ebay from the US. Dirt cheap and genuine surplus, not the Chinese copies, which for some unknown reason aren't as warm or pack down as small. There are also some non-Chinese commercial options available such as the Wiggy's or Kifaru woobies or the 782 gear smoke cloak. All of these are better in many ways than the US military one - aside from the prices of course.

    I shouldn't think so on one... But if they did, then you won't be far off the 12 I quoted.....

    I've an original US poncho liner with drawstring bag and a British army jungle sleeping bag they are more or less the same thing. I did have a swap on here advertised 18 April 2012 looking to replace the poncho liner with another sleeping bag

    You only get charged customs on items over 20 in value
    Ask the seller for some assistance
    I normally mention the fact that the US had issues with our tax levels in the past & this seems to help
