Manufacturer: Tuff Rider
Model: Stretch Manager Turnout Sheet
Purchase: Purchased from Dover Saddlery 10/06 for $99.
Likes: Colors and pattern of design are nice. Concept of stretch, waterproof, breathable fabric is a good one.
Dislikes: This product does not fit well and did not hold up well at all. Within the first couple of weeks, the inner, mesh lining was absolutely shredded and hanging in awkward sheets that got in the way of blanketing my horse. It was beyond repair, so I cut off the dangling strips to get it out of the way. The fit in the shoulder/chest area is particularly skimpy; the buckles fasten, but the fabric has to be pulled tightly across the chest for the velcro closure to meet.
Quality: The inner mesh liner is so thin and fragile as to be useless. It wouldn't hold up inside a person's coat, let along a horse sheet. The outer fabric is torn in long lines, not from catching on anything, but just from the horse rolling on the ground. Way too lightweight to be more than a stable sheet, and what is the point of having "stretch webbing in chest closure for easy grazing and bending down" inside the stall?
Summary: Great concept, but useless in the execution. Don't waste your money on this new technology until they work out the kinks!
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
