          Comments about StormShield® V-Free® Regulator Surcingle Turnout Blanket - Lightweight:

          This turnout blanket fits my quarter horse mare well, and stays in place. My only complaint is that it is marketed as lightweight, but even in the windy chill of a New England early spring, I find her sweating under it. I consider it more of a mid-weight blanket. I am happy enough with the construction and durability of the product to turn to Schneider's for purchase of a summer-weight sheet, too.

          • Q:

            Would this fit an old quarter horse with high withers? All the ones for aging horses are sold out in every color for the size/fill needed

          • StormShield® V-Free® Regulator Surcingle Turnout Blanket - Lightweight

            Q:

            Would this 80 gram lightweight be warmer than a sheet that has no fill?
            Asked on 1/20/2016 by Emma

            1 answer

            • Staff Reviewer

              A:

              This has fill just along the back, in this region it would provide warmth. However, the rest along the sides has no fill and is just like a sheet.

          • Q:

            Is the lightweight(80grams) lighter or warmer/heavier then one of the techno fleece turnout blankets?
            Asked on 1/18/2016 by Emma from IN

            1 answer

            • Staff Reviewer

              A:

              It is lighter, the 80 grams of fill is only have the back section of the turnout because that is where the additional layers of Tekno Dry is with no fill the rest of the way down.The Tekno Fleece turnouts have the polar fleece layer throughout the entire blanket.
