    Only con is that it does have the seam down the back but my horses have worn them through a couple of snow storms and have stayed warm and dry so cant really complain. They fit great and look awesome too.

      Comments about StormShield® V-Free® Tekno-Fleece® Extreme Bellyband Open Front Turnout Blanket - Lightweight:

      I'm constantly switching between mid weight, light weight (90 fill) and a waterproof sheet during seasonal changes. This has been the best alternative ever - no need for a liner under a sheet or light weight blanket when the days are 30-40 degrees but the nights are still in the low 20s. 1680D says it all as far as durability. I now have 2 of these blankets.

          • Q:

            How does this compare to the lightweight StormShield-VTEK-Marathon-Bellyband-Turnout-Blanket? Is it warmer than a turnout sheet but 'lighter' than the 80gm blanket? Is it same weight as Adjusta-Fit® Tekno-Fleece® V-Free® Bellyband Stable Blanket - Lightweight just waterproof?

            • Staff Reviewer

              A:

              The blanket compared to the Maration is that the Maration has insulation and this one has fleece for the inside. Yes it has the same weight as the Tekno-Fleece just is a turnout so it's waterproof.
