          Comments about StormShield(R) VTEK(R) MARATHON Bellyband Lightweight Turnout:

          This product especially useful for my 30 year old mare, who prefers outdoors. This blanket at least provides her some protection against the winter elements, like snow, sleet, & rain. Also, the V-Tec neck fits her now 30 year old confirmation, but allows her to move freely!

            Comments about StormShield(R) VTEK(R) MARATHON Bellyband Lightweight Turnout:

            I love this blanket. I bought one for my horse and then another for my sister's horse as an x-mas present. Both fit great and are the perfect amount of warmth for our purposes (our horses can stand wind chill temps as low as -20 F and snow in these blankets alone). Our horses wear them everyday; morning (outside) and night (in stalls) when the cold sets in here in PA. They seem to be super durable but only time will tell with that. They also seem to resist stains really well. Only wish there were more than one color when I ordered in order to easily keep blankets of the two horses separate.

            Comments about StormShield(R) VTEK(R) MARATHON Bellyband Lightweight Turnout:

            I love this blanket! I have 4 equines outfitted with these this year. We live in the middle of ND so the weather gets a little tough. I try to let my horses go natural for most of the year but when we get rain in January followed by below freezing temps they need something to keep them dry but won't make them sweat. I have the "light weight" variety and it has been absolutely wonderful. I have two horses with no wither and very broad shoulders and two with a lot of wither and narrow shoulders. This blanket fit both types beautifully, no rubbing, and no slipping. These horses live on more than 40 acres where they run, buck, and play with these blankets on. They really stand up to the abuse!
