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.

Osni Cloak - Multipurpose Use
The Osni ("cold weather" in Lakota language) Cloak is multipurpose gear. It snaps into our Ponchos to be a liner, or as an Under Quilt for hammock use. Other uses: stand alone great coat, a sleeping bag - on long side, half bags, blanket, Woobie style, over quilt, hammock liner, Serape, and more. Insulated with APEX maintaining up to 1" loft for comfortable warmth. Cover fabrics are ripstop nylon or poly with water repellent (DWR). The Osni is also basically REVERSABLE retaining all essential functionality. As with all our gear, choose your colors.

Materials

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.
