Osni (pronounced oos-nee)means “cold weather” in the Lakota Indian language, and is the perfect name for this new outerwear gear. It started out as a Poncho Liner and then we blew off the doors and made something really great. Check it out below.
The Osni Cloak has many uses
- Poncho Liner for our Poncho series
- Great Coat
- Half Sleeping or Bivy Bag
- Full length Sleeping bag – std size persons
- Woobie with Hood
- Under Quilt for Hammock
- Over Quilt for Hammock
- Hammock inner liner
- Can be used stand alone or with Poncho
We offer choice, no one offers more choice in all our gear than we do, this is true in our Osni line as well, when you add up all the combinations, we have more than 1000 possibilities. Let us build an Onsi just for you !!
Insulation is APEX which gives the Osni 1″ average loft, excellent warmth
Outer shell and inner cover fabrics are breathable nylon or poly ripstop with water repellent coating. All fabrics are suitable for normal use outdoors, 1.9 oz fabrics are tougher than 1.1 oz. For extra strength choose ROBIC, Super UL, or 1.9 fabrics for the outside cover.
ROBIC nylon has a distinct ripstop pattern, strong and light.
The Osni is sized to fit our Poncho line since it’s primary intention is as a Poncho Liner and an Under Quilt for the hammock made from the Poncho.
You will see the typical poncho sizes listed in the size drop down, we’ll note here the sizing.
PSS = about 58″ x 84″
PSSL = about 58″ x 96″
PSSxL = about 58″ x 108
Note: a smaller size Osni can fit a larger size poncho as the snaps are referenced off the shoulder, so for example you could use a PSS size Osni in a PSSxL poncho.
