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

      I recently bought this blanket because I wanted something warmer than a sheet for the changing fall weather. And this blanket has turned out to be perfect for that. One of my geldings tends to get cold this time of year and with this lightweight turnout he stays warm and has a little more protection than just a sheet when it gets freezing cold at night, but he doesn't get to hot during the day when the temperature rises. The size I ordered fit my horse perfectly and seems to always stay in place. And so far the blanket has held up very well as my horse is outside 24/7. I would recommend this blanket to anyone who has a horse who gets cold wearing just a sheet in the changing fall weather, when you don't want to start putting a heavier and warmer blanket on before it get's seriously cold out. I love SS Tack Blankets. They are the only blankets I will ever buy again.

        I bought 3 of these one for each of my Quarter horses. They usually wear the euro collar blankets but I wanted something in between a turnout sheet and a medium weight blanket. The only problem is it really does not fit my horses well in the shoulders/ withers. Even fully adjusted it hangs low and slides back , it's definitly not designed for broad shoulders and no withers.

              The sheet 37215 has no insulation. Were this Tekno-Fleece is a light weight sheet which works great in the fall and spring.

          • Q:

            Does this blanket offer the same amount of wither relief as the Stormshield TEK Evergreen Turnout Sheet in VTEK wither relief?

            • Staff Reviewer

              A:

              Yes it has the same wither relief. This blanket doesn't come up has high on the neck as the VTek blankets. This one blanket the v-free is right on the withers. If you look at the fit guide it shows you where the sheet will land on the neck.

          • Q:

            How does this blanket compare to the StormShield® V-Free® Versatility Surcingle Turnout Blanket in terms of warmth? Several horses in my barn wear those blankets, which are GREAT, but I want something a little different for my new horse, and want a closed front.

              A:

              The StormShield® V-Free® Versatility Surcingle Turnout Blanket has fill, our X-Midweight with 300 gms of fill. However, the Tekno-Fleece simply has a layer of Polar fleece sandwiched in between the outer shell and inner nylon lining. This will not be quite as warm as the X-Midweight.

            • Staff Reviewer

              A:

              This does not have fill so it does not have a "weight" like a typical blanket. Instead, it has a layer of polar fleece in between the outer waterproof shell and nylon lining.

          • Q:

            Does the closed front version have a bellyband instead of a surcingle? I'm trying to figure out which version will be best for my wide shouldered Arabian, as he tends to get rubs on his shoulders right at the top of the gussets.

            On the snap front model, do the front straps have adjustments to individualize for the width of the horse's chest? I am debating between the snap front vs the closed front.

          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.
