Comments about Schneiders Dura-Mesh Fitted V-Free® Open Front Fly Sheet:

I absolutely love this fly sheet! I have two, one for my half-Arab and one for my retired OTTB. The sheets are now 5 years old and I'm just having to replace the one for my half-Arab as he lives in it 24/7 from April/May-October while turned out on pasture all summer and the nylon binding is falling apart and buckles are breaking from so much wear. I love that it helps keep my horses coats from fading (especially my chestnut, it keeps his coat a gleaming gold during the summer) and it breathes nicely so that they are comfortable even on days where we hit triple digits. I find that the mesh does stretch a bit over time, so I'm ordering down a size so that when it stretches it fits perfectly. Other than that, I can't find anything wrong and this is the best fly sheet for the value anywhere!

      Comments about Schneiders Dura-Mesh Fitted V-Free® Open Front Fly Sheet:

      I have never put fly sheets on my horses before but the horseflies are horrific this year and I hated to see them bucking around and coming in with welts. This sheet does provide some protection because it is so thick and stiff. However, that also makes it unbearable for the horses to wear on very hot days. If it's 92+ or very high humidity I leave it off. On slightly cooler days it protects them even if they sweat a little underneath.

      Overall I'm happy with the quality and adjustability. I do wish it came with a belly strap, and it is so slick that it has shifted a few times. Also the color is pretty blah--wish there were more options!

        This is the best fly sheet I have come across. It is a little heavy for extremely hot days but holds up the best that I have found for the money. Has been the best fitting and does not rub bald spots with extended use. Fits pretty true to size and very adjustable.

            A:

            This sheet is no longer coming in the VTeck in the Dura-Mesh. We do offer the VTek in the Mosquito Mesh item numbers#30719 and #18472.

          What is the difference between the open and closed front dura-mesh fly sheet?

          • Staff Reviewer

            A:

            The only difference between the two sheets is the closed front has no opening in the front and slips over your horse's head while the open front sheet opens and closes with hardware snaps/buckles as pictured.
