Model: Equalizer Freestyle Combo Turnout (View all Equalizer Freestyle Combo Turnout reviews)
Purchase: Purchased new from eBay store for around $65 + shipping. Purchased this when looking for a turnout sheet for fall/winter/spring when it's raining and too warm for blankets (45-60 degree range).
Likes: I could not find a review for this product ANYWHERE and was a little uncertain as to exactly what I was purchasing, but for the price I made the gamble. Some online stores advertised it as a fly sheet, others as a turnout sheet. The description mentioned mesh panels, but in all the photos I found of this sheet, it was difficult to tell if the "mesh sections" were 100% mesh or if they had a mesh lining or what. I'm here to explain that in the photos of this product that you will find online, the white or gray sections are a double layer of a soft, but seemingly durable 100% mesh material, and the blue sections are 600D nylon turnout sheet material.
Dislikes: I would have liked this item better if the mesh sections weren't actually mesh, but I think it will serve its purpose (will be trying it out tonight). The mesh sections might buffer a little light rain, but I'm certain heavy rain will push right on through. I don't sheet my horses if temps are above 60 degrees, so it probably isn't the perfect choice for my use.
Quality: Equal to the Weatherbeeta Landa line of turnout sheets. 600D nylon isn't the toughest (I prefer 1200D), but for what I paid for the item, it's certainly a good deal. Has the added features that I love about the Freestyle system (Clip front, big tail flap). However, I would not pay the MSRP of $145 for this item.
Summary: Basically, the horse's back, top part of the crest of neck, tail/rump, and about 1/2 to 2/3 of its sides will be fully protected from rain and wind. The point is that the horse can wear the sheet in warmer temps and not get too hot. I do believe since it will keep my horse's back dry and has a good tail flap for wind blowing rain from behind, it will work sufficiently for my needs.
Usefulness Rating: 2.7 out of 5.
