    Awesome blankets!!! Except....


    I bought the heavy weight for my horse, he's an off the track thoroughbred and the 76 is an absolute perfect fit. Easy to wipe clean in cold weather, doesn't slip during turn out, can't say enough good things about the quality! Loved it so much that I bought the medium weight as well. EXCEPT....now I have two identical heavy blankets and there is nothing anywhere to indicate the size. In my mind that's a major failure, because when it ices or snows, I can't get to the barn to swap out blankets. That means everyone else at the barn will be confused and less I mark them all over which one is which. I called customer service and discovered that not every blanket had a tag sewn in that said the size. Apparently I have two blankets and neither one gives the blanket weight, so you have to measure them by feel to make the determination. Not very happy about that. I know the difference, but I can't expect everyone else at the barn to do the same. I guess I have to deface the blankets in order to make it work. So while I gave it five stars, I consider this a major fail. Ask before you buy whether or not the sizing is somehow marked on the blanket itself.

    At Last


    At last my life is like a song as I've finally found the perfect turnouts for my boys;). Purchased the Gladiator turnout sheet/medium and they both fit perfectly, totally rain proof, wonderful breathable material weight, great look/stretchy gussets and are standing up to all the antics of my playful geldings. Hoping to see an 80g and high neck in the Gladiator line as I will buy those too;). Thanks Schneiders!




    Great fit and awesome product


    My horses go in and out and this coat doesn't move and is resistant to all their fooling around

    Very tough

    Great blanket


    I was pleasantly surprised to see this was indeed a heavy duty warm turnout blanket. It stays in place even when the horses are rolling or bucking and playing in the pasture.

    Love this blanket. Great fit and very warm.

    Love Schneiders turnouts.


    Have been buying turnouts from Schneides for quite a few years now. Honestly have to say that they really hold up well. Don't believe that I have ever had one rip but I do purchase the heavier denier ones. They always fit great and have nice options. The waterproofing of course does wear off after a time but that's to be expected. It does help if you follow washing instructions. It will be interesting to see how this new line of Armorflex blankets perform. I really think that the blankets I have purchased are a way better value than more expensive blankets from other well known companies.

    Love Schneiders blankets


    Bought one of these 2 years ago and when it came on sale I had to get another one.




    These are super nice, love Schneiders service


    I recently bought this turnout. I have to say it's a really nice blanket for our cold, windy winters. Due to ice, my mare was stalled for 3 days and finally turned out. 3 days later her blanket was torn by a bully in the pasture with her. No fault of Schneiders but, I did call Customer Service looking for a fix. I have to say Customer Service is awesome and they sent out a patch. It has been applied and now, I can again use the blanket... I'm so happy! These people are AWESOME!

    I'm interested in the gladiator turnout, but I don't see a neck cover associated with it. Is there a different neck cover that is compatible with it?


    Hi Victoria! The neck covers for the VTEK Gladitor are unfortunately out of stock already. There wouldn't be another neck cover that would match it directly, in both color, fit, and style.


    Does this come with a cut back wither? I wonder if it would be good for a Friesian. Thanks.


    Hi Janet! This blanket, the Gladiator, does not have a cutback wither option for a Friesian. I encourage you to check out the Armorflex Challenger, it does come in a cutback wither. Here's the link: https://www.sstack.com/Horse-Blankets-And-Sheets/ARMORFlex-Challenger-Cutback-Fit-Medium-Weight-Turnout-Blanket--Surcingle/ Our Customer Service team would be happy to assist you over the phone or via email in selecting the perfect blanket!


    What is the sizing on the hoods? If my horse wears an 80" blanket does that correspond to a large hood?


    The size chart for the hoods is located underneath the photo, the fourth tab in is a size chart. The large hoods fit blanket sizes 78-82, so in all likeliness your horse would wear a large hood.


    Is the Aridity wicking lining on the entire blanket? Specifically the shoulders and front?


    The Aridity wicking lining is in the shoulder area and up over the back and rump, extending down about 20".


    What are the differences between the Gladiator and the Challenger? What justifies the Gladiator being twice the price of the Challenger? How do the two blankets compare in terms of waterproofing?


    The Challenger series of blankets/sheets has a 5 year warranty while the Gladiator has a lifetime warranty. The Gladiator has 15X the waterproofing of other brands of blankets. Most brands use 1000mm waterproofing and the Gladiator uses 15,000mm. We have the longest warranties among other leading brands.


    How does this sheet compare to the Rambo? Especially in terms of being waterproof.


    The ArmorFlex Gladiator has a 1200 denier ripstop poly outer a layer of bamboo charcoal that wicks moisture. This blanket/sheet has 15X the waterproofing of other brands and has a lifetime warranty. The Rambo series of blankets/sheets has a 1000 denier ballistic nylon outer and has a 3 year warranty.


    What is the recommended way to clean/launder this blanket so as to not void the warranty?


    We recommend that the waterproof blankets/sheets be washed with our Schneider's Blanket Wash or similar products in warm water. You can put the blanket/sheet in the dryer on warm (permanent press cycle) or line dry. Do not place in a hot dryer.


    What is the difference between the V-tech and the V-Free?


    The V-Free design is raised and shaped over the wither and goes up to the start of the mane. This style has a more sloped shoulder and fits horses with a moderate to low withers such as stock horse breeds and Arabians. The VTEK design is raised and shaped over the wither and extends 6-8" onto the mane. This style has a more upright shoulder and smaller neck opening making it perfect for higher withered horses.


    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.
