Works great for this everchanging Ohio weather. I can put it on in evening when it is still nice out and my horse isn't too hot, and by midnight when it's freezing rain and torrential wind, she's protected from the weather.

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

    Excellent turnout for changing/mild weather. The fitted v-free style fit my QH absolutely perfectly, and I love the insulation across the type of their back with no fill sides, though I do think it should be more clear in the description that there is no fill on the sides.

      My QH mares are turned out year round with just run in stalls for shelter. They also do a lot of camping in high elevations. These blankets are fantastic. Warm, waterproof, versatile in various climates. I'd buy them over and over again as long as Schneiders continues to carry them.

      • Q:

        Can I order replacement tail flaps for this blanket?
        Asked on 3/17/2017 by Emily from MN

        • A:

          I've never seen replacement tail covers/flaps offered so I did a search and
          it didn't appear that they are offered. I would call their customer service
          and talk directly to an associate. They are very helpful

        What is the drop on a size 70 blanket? We had tried the euro and it was like a dress on our 15.1 Arabian. Are they all cut the same?

        • A:

          Hi, I don't know about the euro, the best fit for arabs are the v-free stormshield or Briton. My Arab is 14.2 and wears a 76. It's perfect. My friends Arab is 14.2 and wears a 68 but likes the Briton it's not as long. Hope this helps

          I have no idea how it compares to other cuts since I have a long and wide 15.2 hand Quarter Horse and this is the only fit I've bought him. It has a fair amount of drop on him, but no more than what I am used to seeing on him with blankets. You want some drop to help keep cold air from rushing up his belly without a belly-wrap.

        • A:

          Oh, and I didn't see the first time where you said size 70. I buy him an 80, so again, I couldn't tell you whether they are all the same.

          My Arab wears a 68 and what is so nice a out this blanket is the cut on the neck which is high. All other blankets I have had are cut so wide at the shoulders the blanket ends up rubbing on his shoulders. This is very different! Love it. I would definitely recommend it, and I would not do this if I didn't endorse this blanket 1000%

          Answered on 12/27/2016 by albqsharla from undisclosed
        • A:

          I have a Morgan and he is about 15.1 and a hard to fit horse. He is in a 74 and it fits him great. Other blankets were way too long on him and it looked like he was wearing a dress. This blanket fits him great. I hope this helps.

          No, not all blankets are cut the same and have the same drop length.
          The drop on a size 70 for this items is 36" at the wither.

        Would this 80 gram lightweight be warmer than a sheet that has no fill?

        • 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.
