    Comments about StormShield(R) VTEK(R) MARATHON Original Turnout - Midweight:

    I did not get this product in time to use it for our extreme weather, so I cannot rate the warmth and waterproofing. However the size 84 was generous for my 16.4hh horse. I like the Velcro assist on the chest and the adjustable buckle/clip for the chest. I had to let the leg straps all the way out, so I feel like the could the 3 to 4 inches longer. Patches was able to move freely, had no restrictions in the shoulder. I like the longer sides and tail flap. just need more colors to choose from.

        My seven year old Quarter Horse just kept growing and growing! At 16.2 he looked like he was wearing his little brother's blanket...this was recommended by a friend who has Warmbloods. Since we have an insulated barn it is only used for daily turnouts but it stays in place, fits great with it's extra long sides to cover his deep heart girth. Well made, great value, love the adjustable neck. Thanks from me and It's Tiger Country...AKA The Cub.

          Comments about StormShield(R) VTEK(R) MARATHON Surcingle Lightweight Turnout:

          I tried at least 8 other turnout sheets on my horse. It was either tight over the withers, tight at the shoulders, or restricted movement. This horse is 14.2 but 1050 pounds. Broad neck and shoulders. This blanket fit him like a glove.

            I love this blanket. I have a tall lanky thoroughbred and he needs to be blanketed all winter long. Since this has been a mild winter this blanket is perfect. He is warm on chilly nights and protected on rainy days. Love it! I know I sleep better at night.

              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.
