Yeah you have always got to remember to add the shipping costs from the states which are creeping up plus the odd customs charge. $15 for a centre seam nam dated poncho liner I would say thats a bargain dude!

i got a really nice and clean 1968 TWILL one,with a matching 1968 dated liner,the only fault was the velcro which just needed a bit of restiching,as it had come loose over the years on one end, $48,i also picked up another unusual item from the same guy, a poncho that had been turned in to a long hooded rain coat/mac with a popper front and pockets,and the liner inside was the early spoted pattern type liner.
The stuff on EBAY never ceases to amaze me !

In 1968 I had two similar jackets that were made by local tailors in Bong Son RVN one was just a poncho made into a rain jacket looking very much lke the one in your pic. but no liner. The other was a windbreaker type reversable jacket made from a camo poncho liner that I truely loved I kept and used both of them continuely for years until they finaly wore out.
The rain jacket w/o liner was pretty common in the area and a lot of guys had them
