    I am so glad I was told to go to Scneiders for my horse blanket needs. The blankets are durable, warm and do not put pressure on the withers like other blankets can. I am a satisfied customer!

        VTEK not a good fit for my arab and quarter horses

        By Catherine

        from Evergreen, CO

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Stormshield® VTEK® Tekno-Fleece® Turnout Blanket:

        I was really excited to get this Stormshield VTEK tekno-fleece blanket but, it only comes in VTEK and V-free; not euro cut. I got the VTEK as I wanted a smaller neck but it gaped a lot around both of my horses' necks, probably because the VTEK cut is designed for horses larger through the shoulders and maybe higher withered, and when I adjusted all the way with the adjusta fit system, that made a gap as well. I have an arab and a quarter horse/paso fino mix. Apparently the V-Free is made for arabs and quarter horses but it has a large neck and I want them to have more neck coverage. So, I have always gotten them euro cuts, which have worked just fine. I will either have to sew the neck to hold the seam flat after it is maximally adjusted or send the blankets back. I'm not sure, if I sew it, whether it would still gap and whether the resulting fabric lump would rub.

        The blanket seemed very well made, as all Schneider's StormShield blankets I have tried have been. It was a great weight and really good looking. I really wish it were available in euro contour collar or classic! The other lightweight blankets available through Schneider's also do not come in euro cuts.

        Service and delivery comments:

        As always, Schneider's service was very good. The blankets arrived earlier than I expected and customer service was very helpful in discussing the fit issues with me.

        VTEK - Only blanket that fits Paso Finos well

        By Lyn

        from Burdett, NY

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Durable
        • Good Fit
        • Waterproof and Breathable

        Cons

        • Need More Colors

        Best Uses

        • 24/7 Turnout
        • Changing Weather
        • Layering

        Comments about Stormshield® VTEK® Tekno-Fleece® Turnout Blanket:

        The V-TEK is the only blanket I've found that fits my high-withered, narrow shouldered horses. The high, forward placement of the gusset is key for horses with high front leg action. These blankets don't create rubs. I have a collection of different weights for each of my three horses. This is a wonderful blanket for when an unlined rain sheet isn't enough, and its light enough to to layer over a heavy-weight bellyband during below zero situations. More colors would be helpful for a multiple horse household. VTEK blankets last and last. I have some that are more than three years old and still going strong..

          Comments about Stormshield® VTEK® Tekno-Fleece® Turnout Blanket:

          This turnout is great for our changing weather in the Northwest. It does a great job keeping my horse dry during showers or downpours. My horse wears it 24/7 & the blanket fits perfectly with the V-tech wither relief design.

              This blanket has a layer of tekno-fleece sandwiched between the liner and outer shell. It does not contain a fill.
