Purchase: Purchased this off of their website 2 months ago for $143.99 with the neck cover. I liked the idea of the elastic neckline and the material seemed to be strong and lightweight. I also liked the warranty.
Likes: I really liked the elastic in the neck and gussets. It was a very good fit for my pony, and the material kept him cool. The company was helpful when I was unsure of what size to order.
Dislikes: I started seeing small rips within the first week. I contacted the company and received no answer. After two months, it has several large tears, making it completely unusable. I got one reply from the company when I filed a warranty claim, stating that I had invalidated the warranty by hanging the sheet on a stationary object, which I had never done. I posted to their Facebook page after calling and emailing several times with no response, stating exactly what had happened, and they deleted my post. The material also trapped horseflies underneath it, and the leg straps stretched to the point of being dangerous.
Quality: The material is a thermoset nylon mesh, which is lightweight, cool, and reasonably durable. The shoulders and neck cover are lined with a thin nylon-type material to prevent rubs. The neckline and gussets are elastic. However, the leg straps stretched way too much, and since the surcingles do not clip on either side, they were constantly falling off. The neck cover also slid down a lot.
Summary: I really liked this sheet, but it's not very durable, especially for the price, and it trapped flies underneath it. However, the company was absolutely disgusting to deal with. Their warranty means nothing. This sheet is not worth the money, and definitely not the hassle.
