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

    I love the entire Regulator line. They fit my horses perfectly and they are very durable. I also like the fact that they are very nice looking. I know they are a little pricey compared to some of the other models but I feel they are worth it because they seem to outlast all the other models and brands I have tried

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

      I love this blanket! It has lasted 4 years and is still usable. It fits my Arabians very well with the many ways to adjust. I have the open front with adjustable straps and now they have added snaps that make it a "snap" to attach. It stays in place when they roll and it doesn't rub or chafe withers or shoulders. It keeps them warm and dry during windy rain storms.

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

      This winter has been mild so far. Previously, we only had rain sheets with no liner and 250-300 gram fill blankets. This blanket was the perfect compromise. It fits both of our AQHA horses nicely. The toughness of the outer sheel seems decent. I've only had mine for a couple weeks, but was concerned by the number of people that mentioned these blankets were not waterproofed as advertised.MY blanket had a HUGE sharp sewing pin that was over 2 inches long sticking out of it, which just reinforced the view that these blankets are leaving the shop unfinished. I think this speaks to the poor level of quality control with "made in China product and honestly it really bothered me that I paid $150 for a lightweight blanket that was made in China.. For that price it could have been made here..

        • 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.

        How to Measure for a Horse Blanket:

        How to Measure for a Horse Blanket
        • For best fit, stand horse squarely.
        • Measure from center of chest to edge of tail.
        • Take care to measure along the widest part of the shoulder and hindquarters.
        • The blanket measurement result is the blanket size.
        • If your measurement is in between sizes, round up to the next blanket size. Example: 73" = Size 74.
