      Had to return the 78 for an 80, runs a bit small. Looks good just started using it. Thinking I should have ordered the belly band version to help keep in place better. Like this sheet because it's very breathable.

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

        I had ordered a bellyband version of this flysheet that didn't fit around my horse's belly (he's chunky), but the fit from front to back seemed good. So I ordered an open front version. This one doesn't fit as well through the shoulder, despite being a v-fit free, but the real problem was the way it fit his hind quarters -- it's HUGE! Enough room for 2 horses' butts back there. So it doesn't fit well, or stay in place in turnout. I would not buy again.

        Delivery was as expected, took about 2 weeks.

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

          I got this one to try as a replacement when the belly band version didn't fit my horse! This one fit her just fine. I did have to get a size larger than I normally get her for sheets - she generally takes a 75 or 76 depending on brand, but this one I needed a 78 for it to fit and not rub too much. It still does slide a little to the left side, where there is more hardware, but not near as much as the belly band version did. It is still a bit shorter down the sides than I would prefer as some of the bigger bugs got right up under it and bit her, but since they got stuck, I was able to remove them from the gene pool... Oh, yeah, I have washed it twice already and it softens up a little so it drapes a bit better, maybe that will help keep out the bugs that sneak under it.

              I bought this for my Polish Arabian mare. She's swan-necked, narrow shoulders,big barrel, high hips. The fit was okay. Not great. The problem was the mosquito mesh would catch her hair and rub it the opposite direction. The sheet would actually get stuck on her hairs.
              We're in the SoCal Desert. It gets hot and humid here. This sheet does not "breathe". It seems to actually trap the heat. An 85 degree morning with humidity and the mare had FOAM sweat coming off her back.
              Then the skin bumps / rash started. To be fair, I'm not sure if it's the hair rubbing / over-sweating combo or something else.
              Either way, this type of fly sheet didn't work for us so I've ordered another type.
              I could only recommend this fly sheet for a cooler, less humid time of year or geographic location.

                  I don't know if there is a guarantee on the product. I can only say from experience that mine has held up beautifully on a mare that, sometimes literally, has fly sheets for lunch. It is either so comfortable she leaves it alone and/or it is tough enough to withstand her assaults. She is a dedicated roller and wears it just about 24/7.

                  A:

                  It should be a cold water wash and hang dry. They could take a towel and lay over it with an iron on a light heat over the towel if they are concerned about the wrinkles. But, just wearing it again in warmer temperatures should allow it to relax and soften up again.
