    Comments about Schneiders Mosquito Mesh Fitted V-Free® Bellyband Fly Sheet - Closed Front:

    Very well made. Most lightweight and breathable fly sheet Ive ever owned, so nice to have in super hot weather. The only reason i can't give 5 stars is because it DOES drastically lean to the bellyband side within minutes, even when it fits spot on and is adjusted correctly.

            Comments about Schneiders Mosquito Mesh Fitted V-Free® Bellyband Fly Sheet - Closed Front:

            I turn my horses out 24/7 during the Summer months, here in the NW the bugs can be very bad. All the wet weather grows some serious knats, mosquitos and flies. This sheet stays in place, is more durable than I thought it would be and is very breathable. The bugs stay out and the horses are happy, the belly band is a bit snug especially with summer hay belly going on.

              • Q:

                Is there a size chart for the leg protection other than S, M, L? I've got a Trakehner and QH so didn't know if it is height, circumference, etc.
                Thanks!

                • A:

                  The leg protection that I purchased is one size for all. The rule is S for ponies, M for quarter horse size, L for stock horses.

                  The only thing I can tell you is I had the sheet on my horse once and it was falling over to one side and got
                  snags in it in one day. I am selling it at a second hand shop. Not very sturdy for turnout. I imagine any leg

                Does this sheet protect against sunburn well? My paint mares get sunburned all over their backs, necks and hips during the summer and I'm looking for a super cool, light-weight, breezy sheet that will protect them from sunburn while not causing them to sweat.

                  This provides up to 60% UV protection and will be lighter and cooler. If you desire more UV protection, the Dura-Mesh Original Fly Sheet or item #13883 provides up to 70% UV protection. For maximum UV protection our Interlock Mesh Surcingle Fly Sheet or item #34981 offer up to 80% UV protection, but will be a bit warmer.

                  The open front features adjustable buckles with snaps for more adjust-ability and two pieces of fabric on the chest actually open so you can slide it off your horse. The closed front is sewn closed and can only be taken on and off by sliding it over the head.
