This is a genuine US Military Wet Weather Poncho Liner, also known as a "woobie blanket". It comes in Woodland camo on both sides. These are more like a blanket than a poncho because they do not have a hole in the center for your head.
Originally designed to provide the Army with a lightweight, piece of equipment used as a covering or field blanket in any environment, the poncho liner provides additional comfort and warmth while involved in combat or field operations. The Poncho Liner is an extremely versatile and useful piece of camping, hiking or survival equipment.
Since they don't have a head hole in them, the wet weather poncho liners make a good recreational blanket. Another great trait of these Poncho Liners is they dry quickly and easily if they happen to get wet.
Besides using as a poncho liner, it can also be used for:
Measuring approximately 5 feet by 7 feet, these blanket-like covers are made of a rugged, lightweight Rip Stop Nylon that's woven in a tight Oxford Weave, has 100% Polyester batting, and is quilted for added strength and durability. It has a band of extra quilting along the width of the center for even more durability and features a rolled nylon edge binding, which prevents tattering or edge wear. At the corners and sides are tie strings which were originally designed to fasten the liner to the Military Issue Poncho. These are great for making an improvised sleeping bag, or tying the Poncho Liner to just about anything or anywhere you need.

Woobie is in really good condition! Fabric is in good shape with no tears. Couple loose threads here and there, and the tag has some superficial wear, but overall in very nice shape. No fading of colors either.
Good quality & value for the price
I was very surprised at the quality of this woobie. The colors were still dark and there were rips or burns. The ties were still in tact as well. Overall a great buy and if they ever get new ones back in stock, consider at least one or two presold!
