Woobie – More Than A “Blanket”

Art 15 logoAccording to Wiktionary a woobie (plural woobies) is:

  1. Any object, typically a blanket, garment or stuffed animal that is used simply for its comforting characteristics.
  2. A term of endearment.
  3. A fictional character, usually physically attractive, who is put under constant stress and angst so as to create emotional attachment.
  4. A poncho liner.

Most veterans remember using a poncho and poncho liner because they kept us warm and dry when in the field. Our friends at Art 15 Clothing have done a very funny video about the military poncho liner (a.k.a. woobie). A woobie a day keeps the doctor away.
