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

        I bought this blanket a few years ago and since I have bought another horse. I was looking just to see if they were still available, big scare as I did not see it until I searched a bit. This is the best blanket and washes and holds up well. Still does not look like it has been used.

              Q:

              Would this 80 gram lightweight be warmer than a sheet that has no fill?
              Asked on 1/20/2016 by Emma

              • Staff Reviewer

                A:

                This has fill just along the back, in this region it would provide warmth. However, the rest along the sides has no fill and is just like a sheet.

            • Q:

              Is the lightweight(80grams) lighter or warmer/heavier then one of the techno fleece turnout blankets?
              Asked on 1/18/2016 by Emma from IN

              1 answer

              • Staff Reviewer

                A:

                It is lighter, the 80 grams of fill is only have the back section of the turnout because that is where the additional layers of Tekno Dry is with no fill the rest of the way down.The Tekno Fleece turnouts have the polar fleece layer throughout the entire blanket.
