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

    This blanket was exactly what we needed. Our very heavyweight blanket was so bulky. This lighter weight one fit perfectly to size yet is still warm enough for my clipped show horse in the winter months (Arizona). It was also easy to get embroidered with his name on it.

          We have 7 head of horses Quarter horses, Thorobreds and a Haflinger. They live outdoors all year round.These blankets are tough and hold up well keeping everyone warm in sub zero temps. The Haflinger is roly poly and harder to fit but the others fit great. They don't even slip when they roll in them!

              When the front is sewn closed, at what position is that, if it had been buckled?
              That takes up room and I am deciding between a 72 and a 74.....

                Not sure, but my horse takes size 78 weather it buckles at the chest or u have to put it over his head.
                Sorry, hope this helps. I would get whatever size your horse normally wears.

              • A:

                To me it depends on how deep your horse ties in at the shoulder. It fits my
                cutters, arabs and fox trotters really well, but not my narrow thoroughbred.
                I would say center hook, but haven't really compared it that way before. I
                love the front closure. If you measure center of chest to back of where you
                would want the blanket to end, it is very true to size. Hope that helps!

                I would say it's at its smallest position, so I would size up.

                A:

                The buckles are measured when the buckles are at the middle whole. So that is how this one would measure with the closed front. If you are nervous about the front closer we would suggest going with the New Briton which is the same fit but has the open front.

                A closed front still measures properly ,order as you would any blanket, in doubt go next size up.

                It fits loose and the idea is that you tighten with the velcro on the
                shoulders. This setup didn't work for me. As soon as the velcro got dirty,
                it was useless. I went back to buckles on the chest.

              Hi,
              Is the wickability feature comparable to the bucas stay-dry fabric, so you can put the blanket on a wet (sweaty) horse?
              Thank you in advance!

                A:

                The Versatility does not have wicking material in it.
                If you likes this fit the Regulators #16004, 16003, 16002 have the Tekno Dri in them or if you want something lighter she can go with a Tekno Fleece turnout #15003
                Both will wick away moisture.
                We don't' recommend any blanket being put on an overly hot or sweaty horse. We do recommend some cool out time under a polar fleece or wool cooler first.

            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.
