    Comments about StormShield® Nordlund Combo Turnout Blanket - Heavyweight:

    This blanket served well for my 2 thin-skinned Arabians and kept them warm & dry despite cold temps (30ºF to -6ºF) and snow/sleet/rain these past 2 winter seasons. My horses are outdoors 24/7 with access to shelter, and were often soaked on the outside--water soaks in vs. beading up before dripping off--but when I felt underneath my horses were always toasty and dry. The fit is good despite my horses' narrow build and high withers; in hindsight I would have ordered a size up for my smaller, narrower horse (he's 14'2" & approx 900 lbs) since I have to buckle the front tighter, which causes the blanket to ride up so his hindquarters are not quite completely covered.
    My only disappointment is how quickly the blankets showed wear -- during the 1st winter season the seams on the bottom edges of the inner linings ripped and the outer shell got little rips and frayed, which continued to occur over the course of the 2nd season. Also, the neck covering started to "slouch" after 1 season due to the fabric losing its stiffness, but the Velcro has held up fine with periodic cleaning. The shell quality is not as tough as the Marathon VTek Stormshield (which I used for 2 years), but still, for the price, this blanket is well worth the money.

      Comments about StormShield® Nordlund Combo Turnout Blanket - Heavyweight:

      If we could have caught my mare on video, she would have been a perfect ad for this blanket! Bucking, rearing, playing in her paddock and the blanket did not slip.
      Even better, with temperature changes as much as 40° in a 24 hour period, she never overheated in this blanket.

      This fit my 16.3 Thoroughbred perfectly. A lot of blankets tend to rub her shoulders, but the gussets and cut gave her plenty of room to be comfortable.

          Q:

          Will this fit a big fella or should I stick with a big fella blanket 84in But I only see midweight. Have something in heavyweight for big fella??

            A:

            The big fella blankets have a longer drop on the sides to help make sure the horse is covered on the sides. The big fella doesn't have a heavyweight. It does have the x-midweight which is 300g fill and a heavy weight has 380g so your only 80g away from the heavyweight.

            My horses wear 80" and they are little bit snug.  They are fabulous blankets though and really warm.

            A:

            High withers or withers that are very visible. This turnout is good for low to medium withers, if your horse has high withers and your concerned about putting added pressure on the withers I would suggest she look at the VTeks.

        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.
