Great fly sheet!!

This sheet keeps my horse from being bitten by the many flies and mosquitoes that we have. It is lightweight and easy to hose off and dries quickly.

There are square holes in the belly band from where the straps were sewn in, they completely ripped out.

This blanket seems more durable than ones I bought before. Less bands to get hung up on. Definitely recommend the belly band extender as the straps are not long enough to go around my horses belly.

Doesn't hold shape or stay in place

Nice at first but only after a couple weeks it completely twists within minutes of being turned out and wrinkles up the side so there is no coverage on his left side.Washing doesn't help. I bought the mosquito mesh for our other gelding, although it's more expensive, it stays in place and holds it's shape very well..

Nice fly sheet - order a size up if you have a stout horse

I like and use this fly sheet but the belly band straps are barely long enough for my stout horse.

Dura-Tech® Ripstop Nylon Mesh Bellyband Fly Sheet

Will this sheet help prevent a horse from bleaching out in the summer? Mane and coat?

Parkerrr

It will help but won't prevent bleaching. The sheet has a 65% UV rating and is much cooler for horses in the heat while providing relief from biting insects. The higher the UV rating, the tighter the weave, which blocks out harmful rays. We do have the Soft Interlock Mesh flysheets that have an 80% UV rating.

Cheri

I've bought the $60 fly sheets and the $160 fly sheets. My problem is they all want to grab my horses hair and pull to the back, making the neck and shoulders tight. I pull off within a few days. My winter blankets have a nice lining that keeps the hair shiny and slick. Which one will keep coat shiny without the pulling?

Lisa

This fly sheet is a Euro fit that starts about 4-6" over the wither and has a smaller neck opening with a more upright shoulder. This smaller neck should prevent the sheet from sliding back. The fine mesh is soft, provides 65% UV protection and keeps horses cool. The shoulders are nylon lined to prevent rubs. The VTEK sheets extend even higher up over the wither and would be another outstanding fit choice. Once horses have their summer coats they are naturally slick and shiny.

Will this sheet keep a grey horse clean if they roll? Or is the mesh too wide? I need a lightweight sheet that I can use the night before shows; however I'm in Florida so I don't want anything too heavy. I am also considering the soft mesh sheet with the attached neck.

Lee

It's lightweight with a tight weave and with the belly band option would keep him clean except his neck. My horses stay super clean in them. I'm unsure if there is a neck attachment for this one- Sent from my iPhone

westvalleyshowhorses

Hi, The fly sheet does keep them cleaner. The horse will only need a light brushing. I am in Florida also so yes it's light weight. My only complaint is that for a horse who wears this 24/7 turn out it has already ripped down the center were it attaches to the band that runs down the center. If you're using only for the night before the show it would be fine. Fits great. Hope this helpsLinda Sent from my Galaxy Tab® S2

lindasherrill528

It will definitely help keep them cleaner. Being a mesh fabric there is always a chance of some dirt getting through but it will really help especially on a grey.

blockquote, div.yahoo_quoted { margin-left: 0 !important; border-left:1px #715FFA solid !important; padding-left:1ex !important; background-color:white !important; } I love this sheet! While the mesh looks like big squares it has small mess throughout. I also have the neck piece and my horse seems to stay pretty clean.  Sent from Yahoo Mail for iPhone

trish.hafely

Um I think it would 🤔😬 Even though its mesh, it has good coverage. My horse is a bay though so I'm not sure if dirt would show up on your grey BUT I haven't seen any dirt get through to my guy's coat while he's been wearing it. Sorry that I'm not able to be more helpful Sent from my iPhone

gfiore295

HiI'm in California and have both the fly sheet and the soft mesh sheet.  I would use the soft mesh sheet before a show.  It would definitely keep your horse cleaner than the fly sheet. The fly sheet is great but knowing horses they would find the one pile of poop to lay in before the show.

taimusic

Trying to gauge fit for my draft cross. Big fellas do not come small enough (need 80-82), but I have trouble with finding a good fit for the big draft shoulders. Rambo blankets fit perfectly. Weatherbeeta are too tight in the shoulders. Any idea how this compares to those brands? thank you!

Sasha

I have all three: Rambo, Weatherbeeta and Schneiders Rip-Stop. I have ordered an 82 in each instance and they have fit my guy just fine. He is a large morgan/QH. Hope this helps.

fransherwood

Hi Sasha,     I bought this fly sheet for my little Quarter horse mare. There is a lot of extra room in the the shoulder area on her, but she has a fairly standard chest, not too narrow. The only thing that may not work for your big guy is that the sheet maybe too short on the sides. On my mare it is a good length past her belly, but if your guy fills out the sheet more it may shorten the length on the sides and not offer enough protection, belly and legs.   I hope this helpful.  Lindsey  Sent from Yahoo Mail on Android

linskay0430

Unfortunately, our Big Fella sheets start at size 84. You may want to try a size 82 as they fit the larger, muscular types well.

Anonymous

I like the soft interlock mesh for my gray mare. It keeps the flies off and she stays relatively clean in turn out. I am looking for a lighter alternative. Would you recommend this or the dura-mesh? Thank-you.

Karen Fischer, DVM

I have both.  The Dura-Tech Ripstop is definitely lighter than the soft interlock. I would use this one in warmer weather. I have already used the Ripstop and my mare did not sweat underneath.

taimusic

This is the lightest of the fly sheets and is a similar fit to your other sheet. The Dura-Mesh is much heavier so I would recommend this sheet instead.

Customer Service

Is it breathable, i.e., open weave? Does it stand up to bites from other horses?

Cody's mom

Yes it is but of the open weave fly it is probably the least durable. The mosquito mesh #17283 would be stronger towards biting horses.

Customer Service

are extensions available for the belly band? i have one and it is the right length, but the band doesn't quite reach around her round ribs. it fit another itchy one great though!

jamie

We do care bellyband extenders item number is 21238.
