  • Waterproof and Breathable

Cons

    Comments about StormShield® V-Free® Versatility Bellyband Turnout Blanket- Midweight:

    I have used this blanket for several winters on my other horses. When the new horse arrived, we ordered one for her. They have stood up well to use, stay in place, are water proof for turn out, and reasonably priced. I like to have one of the medium wt. and one of the sheet version for layering, and for milder temperatures, when only the sheet is needed. The two together are a winning team for all 3 colder seasons here in Michigan.

          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.
