V-Free Nylon Blanket Liner
Manufacturer: Schneiders Saddlery
Model: V-Free Nylon Blanket Liner
Purchase: I purchased two of these liners from Schneider Saddlery for $39 apiece plus tax and shipping. I wanted to be able to vary blanket coverage for my horses depending on changes in the weather.
Likes: These liners are lightweight, yet quite warm. The slots for the leg straps (of the overblanket) seem to be perfectly placed. They seem to stay in place under the blanket or sheet reasonably well. They seem to be breathable.
I'm not crazy about closed fronts, but with a liner, I think it's probably more comfortable for the horse.
Dislikes: In my opinion, the "adjusta-fit" configuration is a failure. The liners work best if they happen to fit your horse without having to 'adjust' the neck hole, because when you do this, you create a huge balloon-y pucker in the fabric around the horse's neck which can rub and cause hair loss. I bought one Schneider turnout blanket with this feature and found that it was useless.
Quality: This liner is made with a lighter denier, however, it doesn't seem to matter, since it's never exposed to hazards. So far the stitching and overall construction seem adequate.
Summary: This is a useful item of clothing for using under a turnout sheet on those raw fall days when a sheet isn't enough, but it isn't frigid enough for a regular winter turnout. In really nasty Arctic-like cold, it can be used under a regular medium or heavy turnout for added warmth. Of Schneiders' line of horse clothing, I've found this the most useful.
