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

    This blanket was the perfect transition from really cold days when I needed my medium weight blanket to cool, drizzly spring days and nights. My 34yr. old Morgan gelding stayed warm and dry and these blankets are such a good fit for a curvy Morgan. I really love the belly band blankets, they are warm and really stay in place. Thanks Schneider's for making such a great product.

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

      I had a different blanket on my horse-found that she had bare spots at her front legs from rubbing. I chose this blanket for several reasons. Love the adjustments at all fit points. The gussets at the front allowed her freedom of movement-no more bare spots! Belly band keeps it closely in place. I had a little trouble adjusting the back leg straps-they are elastic and tend to loosen up a bit. It is warmer than her previous blanket, and seems more durable. She only wore it for a month before I took it off for warmer weather. Very happy with this purchase.

        UPDATE - Moisture Under the Blanket

        By NorCalhorse

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

            The great customer service people at Schneider's emailed me after reading my review because the moisture may be due to back seam issue, which is totally covered by the warranty. No product ever produces every single item perfectly so a mishap once in a while and great customer service to rectify the situation is the best. I will post again once the replacement arrives and gets used in the rain.

            • Q:

              How does this compare to the lightweight StormShield-VTEK-Marathon-Bellyband-Turnout-Blanket? Is it warmer than a turnout sheet but 'lighter' than the 80gm blanket? Is it same weight as Adjusta-Fit® Tekno-Fleece® V-Free® Bellyband Stable Blanket - Lightweight just waterproof?

                A:

                The blanket compared to the Maration is that the Maration has insulation and this one has fleece for the inside. Yes it has the same weight as the Tekno-Fleece just is a turnout so it's waterproof.
