In 2012 the All Purpose Liner was developed for the Marine Corps with NSN 8405-01-607-1111. The All Purpose Liner retains the same Woodland Digital (MARPAT) / Coyote reversible design as the standard Marpat Poncho Liner. The All Purpose Liner has a zipper originating in the center of one short edge of the liner and running up and around each of the long sides, with the top side being left open. This allows the All Purpose Liner to convert into a sleeping bag liner.
While the all purpose liner is reversible, the Woodland Digital (MARPAT) side has been treated with water-repellent for light wet conditions.
Originally designed to provide Marines 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.
