    This blanket fits my reining horse well. The changing weather in Illinois, this blanket is great! Used alone or layering for below zero weather. My horse has had a lot of compliments on his hair coat this winter and spring by using this blanket.

      Comments about StormShield® V-Free® Tekno-Fleece® Open Front Turnout Blanket - Lightweight:

      Love Love this blanket! This is probably one of my favorite blankets from Schneiders, and I have around 40 of their blankets. My mare wears this 24/7 all winter long. Waterproof. Durable. And never shifts even though she takes daily naps and rolls every morning. I never have to worry about it moving. I have had it for about 3 years now and still in great shape even though worn all day during a Michigan winter. I also use for fall and spring when its cold at night but warmer during the day. I have never had a problem with her getting too warm or cold while wearing it. It is light weight. Has a little bit of fill so its not a sheet but not enough to be heavy or considered a midweight.

        Comments about StormShield® V-Free® Tekno-Fleece® Closed Front Turnout Blanket - Lightweight:

        I have several different Stormshield V-Free turnout type blankets. I use the Tekno Fleece closed front turnout for days when I don't need my heaviest turn out, or in the barn when a blanket is needed, but not the heaviest blanket needed. I have also used this blanket as layer either between the sheet and the heavy blanket on super cold nights/days, or at an underlayer on cold days for turn out instead of a sheet. The fit is great. I have quarter horse reiners, and these V-Free blankets fit and stay in place.

                A:

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

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

                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.

                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.

              • 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.

            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.
