      Comments about StormShield� VTEK� MARATHON Bellyband Turnout - Heavyweight:

      This is a sharp looking blanket that functions well too. I used it for cold days (15-40 degrees) and as a layer under the hooded blanket when the weather was less than 15 degrees as my mare lives outdoors in Massachusetts. The blanket looks as good today as it did in the Fall - no rips or other damage and kept it's color without fading.

          I am very pleased with this blanket. My gelding is in a small(3) herd at home. So far this blanket has held up very well. I have received compliments on the blanket from my trainer. The V-neck has made a difference in the fit.

            Warmest heavy blanket yet and waterproof too. Our boys are in & out 24/7 and always warm and dry. The belly band keeps them in place much better than the other strap systems we've used; stays put even with lots of rolling and tugging from buddies. Great fit and easy to get on/off.

              What are the instructions for laundering the StormShield 1680D VTek Marathon Bellyband Turnout?

              • Staff Reviewer

                A:

                Instruction for laundering is with each blanket. It's suggest to wash in a blanket specific was or a light detergent if you must use something.

            • StormShield(R) VTEK(R) MARATHON Bellyband Turnouts

              Q:

              Does this connect to the blanket? I was hoping it would solve the problem of the hole created by the adjustable neck and the rain running under the blanket. But if there is no connection then it might pull above the neck of the blanket, especially since there is bulk created by the adjustable neck.

                A:

                This neck cover connects to the StormShield® VTEK® Marathon Bellyband Turnouts and StormShield® VTEK® Marathon Surcingle Turnouts with 4 of the D rings placed around the neck opening, 2 on each side.
