      Comments about StormShield® V-Free® Regulator Surcingle Turnout Blanket - Midweight:

      Always buy my blankets from SSTack. Cannot beat the quality of their turnouts and sheets and great prices . Perfect fit every time, love the style of this one, and color. Stays in place tho mare isn't too hard on blankets anyway. We are in mud season now, and I've just hosed off some spots and scrubbed with a brush and mild soap. Good as new. Layered with a sheet for our unusual single digit nights this winter for a week straight and she was warm as toast. I turnout in the day if not raining and bring her in at night. She is an AQHA, 950 lbs and the 76 fits perfect . All my SSTack blankets are 76s or 78s through the yrs. They last forever. My 1st Vfree adjusta is probably 5yrs old and my go to still and looks super. Bought this for something different and possible extra layer and cannot resisist the prices here so also stock up during sale time :)

            So far I love this blanket! The fit is great and color is perfect! Been using it for almost 2 months on a Quarter Horse and she wears it almost all the time, have not had any hair rubbed off. No problems with my horse being wet under the blanket either. I will be ordering this blanket again in the light weight for spring.

                I've never seen replacement tail covers/flaps offered so I did a search and
                it didn't appear that they are offered. I would call their customer service
                and talk directly to an associate. They are very helpful

                Hi, I don't know about the euro, the best fit for arabs are the v-free stormshield or Briton. My Arab is 14.2 and wears a 76. It's perfect. My friends Arab is 14.2 and wears a 68 but likes the Briton it's not as long. Hope this helps

                I have no idea how it compares to other cuts since I have a long and wide 15.2 hand Quarter Horse and this is the only fit I've bought him. It has a fair amount of drop on him, but no more than what I am used to seeing on him with blankets. You want some drop to help keep cold air from rushing up his belly without a belly-wrap.

                Oh, and I didn't see the first time where you said size 70. I buy him an 80, so again, I couldn't tell you whether they are all the same.

                My Arab wears a 68 and what is so nice a out this blanket is the cut on the neck which is high. All other blankets I have had are cut so wide at the shoulders the blanket ends up rubbing on his shoulders. This is very different! Love it. I would definitely recommend it, and I would not do this if I didn't endorse this blanket 1000%

                I have a Morgan and he is about 15.1 and a hard to fit horse. He is in a 74 and it fits him great. Other blankets were way too long on him and it looked like he was wearing a dress. This blanket fits him great. I hope this helps.

                No, not all blankets are cut the same and have the same drop length.
                The drop on a size 70 for this items is 36" at the wither.

                This has fill just along the back, in this region it would provide warmth. However, the rest along the sides has no fill and is just like a sheet.

                It is lighter, the 80 grams of fill is only have the back section of the turnout because that is where the additional layers of Tekno Dry is with no fill the rest of the way down.The Tekno Fleece turnouts have the polar fleece layer throughout the entire blanket.

            How to Measure for a Horse Blanket:

            How to Measure for a Horse Blanket
            • For best fit, stand horse squarely.
            • Measure from center of chest to edge of tail.
            • Take care to measure along the widest part of the shoulder and hindquarters.
            • The blanket measurement result is the blanket size.
            • If your measurement is in between sizes, round up to the next blanket size. Example: 73" = Size 74.
