          This turnout is perfect for those days when a rain sheet isn't warm enough and a midweight is too much. Schneider's turnouts fit my horse perfectly and I love how you can snug up the neck with the Adjusta-Fit velcro strips. I now have a Schneider's rain sheet, this Tekno-Fleece turnout, and a Schneider's midweight turnout, so my gelding's wardrobe is all set! :)

              A:

              The sheet 37215 has no insulation. Were this Tekno-Fleece is a light weight sheet which works great in the fall and spring.

          • Q:

            Does this blanket offer the same amount of wither relief as the Stormshield TEK Evergreen Turnout Sheet in VTEK wither relief?

            1 answer

            • Staff Reviewer

              A:

              Yes it has the same wither relief. This blanket doesn't come up has high on the neck as the VTek blankets. This one blanket the v-free is right on the withers. If you look at the fit guide it shows you where the sheet will land on the neck.

          • Q:

            How does this blanket compare to the StormShield® V-Free® Versatility Surcingle Turnout Blanket in terms of warmth? Several horses in my barn wear those blankets, which are GREAT, but I want something a little different for my new horse, and want a closed front.
            Asked on 1/5/2016 by Kristen from Denton, TX

            • Staff Reviewer

              A:

              The StormShield® V-Free® Versatility Surcingle Turnout Blanket has fill, our X-Midweight with 300 gms of fill. However, the Tekno-Fleece simply has a layer of Polar fleece sandwiched in between the outer shell and inner nylon lining. This will not be quite as warm as the X-Midweight.

            What is the weight of this blanket? Light/Medium/Heavy/etc?

            • Staff Reviewer

              A:

              This does not have fill so it does not have a "weight" like a typical blanket. Instead, it has a layer of polar fleece in between the outer waterproof shell and nylon lining.

          • Q:

            Does the closed front version have a bellyband instead of a surcingle? I'm trying to figure out which version will be best for my wide shouldered Arabian, as he tends to get rubs on his shoulders right at the top of the gussets.

          • Q:

            On the snap front model, do the front straps have adjustments to individualize for the width of the horse's chest? I am debating between the snap front vs the closed front.

          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.
