    Amazing blankets

    Bought these blankets because of their waterproof and durability. Throughout all of the excessive torrential rains we're having in TN the horses have stayed dry under these blankets! Amazing! The bamboo layer will wicks away moisture during warmer spells. Love these tough blankets

    LOVE this blanket for my geriatric Arabian

    I ordered the 380 gram for my 28 yr old Arabian, he's a very hard keeper. He's maintaining is weight with this blanket and he's always nice and warn under it. This blanket is super high quality all around. Very very durable. I've owned horses for 35 years and this is the best blanket I've ever owned (and I've owned and tried almost all of them at some point or the other).

    This blanket keeps my mare with a thin coat warm all winter. Durable, easy to wipe clean, and holds up to abuse from another horse. Would definitely recommend and buy again!

    Using this on an old boy that needs help when it is sleeting, blowing, snowing, and below zero temps. It's perfect. Being on sale made it affordable for me.

    Great Blanket

    5

    This is with out a doubt the best Blanket I have purchased. It fits great and is very durable so far. My horse is turned out 24/7 with 2 other horses and so far no rips. He is a stocky Quarter horse but has prominent withers and this blanket is perfect for him. So far no wither rubs! They are a bit pricy but worth the cost. Hopefully it last many seasons.

    I am ordering the turnout sheet. I would like to put a fleece under it as the weather gets colder. She is a 76, would a fleece fit underneath this or would I need to go up one size?

    Parker

    Yes a fleece would fit underneath and you would order the same size fleece as the blanket.

    Cheri

    It appears this sheet has seams along the sides near the top. Have there been any issues with leaking? I have always been told to avoid sheets or blankets with seams as water doesn't run off as freely and seams may leak. Thank you

    2ponies

    No, we have had no issues with leaking around the seams. This is a super tough sheet and it is covered under a 10 year warranty.

    Cheri

    I am considering the gladiator or the warrior sheet without insulation. Which would be a better choice for a horse that is trace clipped and still sweats easily, even in the high 40's. Lots of rain in the PNW, and shelter available. Which sheet would be more breathable?

    Vera

    Both style sheets are breathable. The only difference in them is the Gladiator is 1200 denier ripstop polyester, 15X the standard waterproofing and has a lifetime warranty. The Warrior is 1680 denier outer and has 5X the standard waterproofing with a 10 year warranty.

    Cheri

    I noticed the Gladiator Blanket is twice the cost of the Challenger or Warrior, what are the differences?

    Suzanne

    The Cladiator comes with a lifetime warranty. The Challenger has a 5 year warranty and the Warrior has a 10 year warranty.

    Cheri

    What is the difference between the armorflex gladiator and warrior?

    Erika

    The Gladiator has a 1200 denier outer cover with 15X the waterproofing of any other brand. The Gladiator comes with a lifetime warranty. The Warrior series of blankets/sheets has a 1680 denier ballistic nylon outer with 5X the waterproofing of other brands. The Warrior comes with a 10 year warranty. Both series of blankets/sheets come in either a V-free style fit or VTEK style fit.

    Cheri

    I'm looking for a turnout sheet for the summer that is waterproof and without fill since my horse is on turnout 24/7. Do you have such a product?

    Corissa

    Our turnout sheets aren't designed for the summer heat. Air will not pass through the heavy nylon exterior, which will cause your horse to overheat. We have a large selection of summer mesh fly sheets that will keep your horse cool and protect from the flies and UV rays, but unfortunately, not waterproof.

    Does this blanket run true to size? My horse typically wears an 80 but her old blanket runs oversized so I had to go down a size (78)

    Annette

    My 15.1 hand, short backed horse, wears a 72 in this blanket but she measured as a 74.  Sent from my iPhone

    kellih2010

    Hi Anette, I have a PRE so, he is small.  72 is the blanket size.  I think this brand fits him very well.  I would say, true to size with just a little wiggle room bu,t not enough that it creates rubs etc. I have always had good luck with these blankets.   Very well made.  Give it a try. I hope it works for you.  

    joyceelderstjohn

    This is true to fit. You do have adjustable with the adjustable fit system on the shoulders. I would measure him from the center of the chest to the edge of the tall and go off that measurement. Different tack stores measure differently.

    Customer Service

    I have found that generally they are close. That said, I have a very large warmblood with a very deep chest and went a size larger, the fit was better. I have a smaller warmblood and found that he needed a size smaller then usual, as he's very young and a bit narrow right now. Schneider's has a good return policy, so I would try the "proper" size first. Also, just as an FYI, they really do stand by their guarantee. I had a blanket that got damaged and they were totally on top of replacing it! Sent from my iPad

    Hi, I recently bought the medium weight StormShield-VTEK blanket. I am considering also getting the lightweight. .but also getting the neck cover. Can I use the neck cover with both? Thanks! Jamie

    Jamie

    Yes, you will be able to use the neck cover with both.
