Not the same quality that they used to be

By Heather

from Canada

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Easy to Clean

Cons

  • velcro closure on front only lasts a short time

Best Uses

  • 24/7 Turnout
  • Everyday Wear

Comments about Schneiders Dura-Mesh Fitted V-Free® Bellyband Fly Sheet:

Sad that the quality of these blankets is not the standard it used to be. The mesh is pulling away from the seams in many places after only 1 1/2 months of use. My horse is stalled most of his time, and not hard on his blankets. My previous Duramesh fly sheet lasted 6+ years and I was expecting the same craftmanship with a new blanket. But it's clear they are not the same quality.

Nice mesh fly sheet

By Jules

from Palos Verdes, CA

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Durable
  • Easy to Clean
  • Good Fit

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Everyday Wear
    • Indoor/Outdoor

    Comments about Schneiders Dura-Mesh Fitted V-Free® Bellyband Fly Sheet:

    I needed a fly sheet with a belly strap and a sheet that does not stick to my horses hair. I have tried other materials and they would grab onto his coat and the sheet would start moving down his back till he was choking- he does have a large warm blood shoulder. This sheet stays mostly in place, but with the belly rap weight on the one side the sheet tends to slide over to that side. But I see him everyday and just slide it back over.

    Tough, durable sheet

    By Chelsea Stead

    from Easton, CT

    Pros

    • Durable
    • Easy to Clean
    • Good Fit
    • Good Value
    • Stays in Place

    Cons

    • Need More Colors
    • Too Heavy

    Best Uses

    • 24/7 Turnout
    • Changing Weather
    • Everyday Wear
    • Indoor/Outdoor

    Comments about Schneiders Dura-Mesh Fitted V-Free® Bellyband Fly Sheet:

    Love this sheet. It fits my mare very well, and is the tough screen material that holds up well on her, and she loves to roll.
    The adjustability of the sheet is great and would definitely fit a wide variety of horses. It sits higher on the withers and prevents my mare from getting chaffed.
    The only thing that I don't like about this sheet is that on those hot, humid 90 degree days, she is covered head to toe in sweat with the sheet on. The mosquito mesh sheets are definitely lighter and more breathable, but aren't as tough as these.
    Overall, a great fly sheet. Best used in changing weather when the bugs start emerging and its cooler out. If it's 80 or under she's usually ok. Get the mosquito mesh sheet for the hotter weather.

    HATE THIS SHEET - SHIFTS & TWISTS

    By Mary C

    from Green Bay, WI

    Pros

    • Warm

    Cons

    • Didn't Like
    • SHIFTS & TWISTS ALL THE TIME
    • Too Heavy

    Best Uses

      Comments about Schneiders Dura-Mesh Fitted V-Free® Bellyband Fly Sheet:

      Purchased Aug. 2015, and tried to use for the sheet for the first time in May 2016.
      Every horse I put this sheet on, it would shift and twist, and the front closure would not stay closed! I even tried magnets in order to counter weight the extra material and hardware on the left side, but still didn't stay in place. I ended up tacking the front closed, so it wouldn't fly open.
      It's very heavy and hot, which caused my horses to sweat in the short amount of time it was on them.
      I consider this fly sheet absolutely an overpriced waste of money, and would suggest that you avoid purchasing this item.
      If you're looking for an excellent quality, cool, easy to clean fly/mosquito sheet, I highly recommend the "MOSQUITO MESH FITTED V-FREE STABLE FLY SHEET!"
      It's less expensive, much lighter and cooler, and does the job perfectly!!!

      Great sheet!

      By Bluii

      from Lemoore, ca

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Easy to Clean
      • Waterproof and Breathable

      Cons

      • Need More Colors

      Best Uses

      • Everyday Wear

      Comments about Schneiders Dura-Mesh Fitted V-Free® Bellyband Fly Sheet:

      I purchased this for my 14 had horse. The Velcro on the neck helps me adjust the neck so it doesn't fall off his shoulders. The width is a bit too big but overall it's a great sheet.
