    These blankets just fit RIGHT

    My OTTB is a perfect size 76 Gladiator, and since he's out 24/7, and this winter has gone from 70s to -23, swapping out blankets is a necessity. This is especially critical because he's almost 27 and has Cushings, both of which make it more difficult for him to regulate his body temperature. Great fit, looks snazzy, he can move in these blankets, and the reflective stripes and teflon and scotchguard yreatments are an added plus.

    Because of the amazing sale price, I couldn't pass up this blanket. My horse is really hard on his blankets, I'm constantly buying new ones because he demolishes them in a very short time. So, I'm excited to see how this holds up and with the lifetime warranty, I have a feeling I'll be saving more money now!! I got the heavyweight and it's been keeping him cozy warm and fits really good actually. I was hesitant because my guy is a big 18.3 hand Hanoverian and I also bought him a big fella size in the warrior medium weight. And this blanket actually seems bigger than the big fella. The big fella is supposed to be longer on the sides and wider in the chest but it's shorter than this blanket. I love the way this one fits him. Fingers crossed that it holds up better than all the others I've spent tons of money on.

    Amazing fit!

    I was pleasantly surprised by the fit of this blanket....hugs contours without being too tight. Our horse seems happy and so far no runs. I cannot comment on durability quite yet, but feels very well made.

    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?

    Victoria

    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.

    Ashley

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

    Janet

    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!

    Ashley

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

    JJ

    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.

    Ashley

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

    Vera

    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?

    Jennifer

    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.

    Cheri

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

    Jennifer

    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.

    Cheri

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

    Lori

    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.

    Cheri

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

    Bellaremy

    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.
