Aridity™ Bamboo Charcoal Inner Layer:

  • Bamboo charcoal comes from pieces of bamboo plants, harvested after at least five years, and burned in ovens at temperatures ranging from 800 to 1200°C
  • The high temperature increases the deodorizing and antibacterial properties
  • Eliminates odors instead of masking them
    • Compared to regular charcoal, bamboo charcoal has ten times more surface area and is four times stronger in its absorption rate
    • The porous structure of bamboo charcoal provides countless tiny holes that effectively absorb odors, moisture, and polluted air particles such as formaldehyde, ammonia, and benzene
  • Bamboo-charcoal retains the natural antibacterial and antifungal traits of natural bamboo
    • It is also a bacteriostatic material: it inhibits bacterial metabolism and causes fewer allergic skin reactions than other fibers sterilized with antimicrobial agents
  • Bamboo charcoal has a negative ionic charge attracting odors and excess moisture in the atmosphere
    • It retains the high density and porous structure of its raw material, bamboo, enabling it to absorb excessive moisture effectively
    • Bamboo-charcoal fabric has a cross-section filled with various micro-gaps and micro-holes
    • Compared to other conventional fabrics it has better moisture absorption and ventilation
    • It can absorb and disperse sweat fast, keeping your horse feeling dry and comfortable
    • Due to the porous nature of bamboo charcoal, products not only feel dry during warmer days, but they are also excellent insulators against the cold
  • Prevents static electricity buildup
    • As bamboo-charcoal nano particles are conductive, their presence in the fiber helps the fabric prevent charge buildup, resulting in reduced static shock even in dry conditions
  • Bamboo-charcoal nano particles are embedded in the fabric rather than simply coated on their surface, so it’s washable without diminished effectiveness of the charcoal powder's special qualities, even after 50 washes
  • Bamboo charcoal/activated carbon emits far infrared rays (FIR) which have many health benefits
    • FIR expands blood vessels and increases circulation, allowing the body to fuel working muscles and repair damage more efficiently
    • Eases soreness in the shoulders, scapula, withers and hips
    • Great for sensitive-backed and older, arthritic horses

Best blankets out there


I bought this heavy weight in an 81 for my 16.3 thickly built thoroughbred. Fit is good - a smidge too big in length, but that was okay with me. The V-tek blankets are the only ones that fit his high withers. Blanket is so durable and the dirt just wipes right off! Love it. Only Schneider v-teks for me!




I always come back to Schneiders blankets!


I have tried them all. Expensive, fancy names, big huge companies....all have failed except for Schneiders. I come back to Schneiders time and time again after thinking I have found something better. The answer is, there is no better than Schneiders blankets! They last the longest, remain waterproof for more than one season, and are virtually indestructible! I will never buy anywhere else again!


Jonesborough, Tennessee

Keeps my horses warm and dry, easy to maintain

Global Warming ? Hah!


Put the blanaket on - but then Spring hasn't happened., put it back on but it's off now!


A small town in Central NYS


Would definitely buy again!


Love the blanket. My horse is out 24/7 and was dry after being in a steady light to medium rain all day. Stays in place well. Very durable! I especially like the neck adjustment.

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?


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)


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


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.  


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.

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


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

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.
