Honeycomb ChillChaser Sheet
Model: Honeycomb ChillChaser Sheet
Purchase: I ordered this sheet from the Dover Saddlery Catalogue for $19.99 on sale. I needed new chill chasers for my horses after bathing them so that they wouldn't shiver afterwards/would soak up the excess water on their bodies that the sweat scraper couldn't get off.
Likes: I like the texture of this sheet. It also looks handsome on my boys and does the trick in keeping them from shivering after baths.
Dislikes: Well, one of the sheets I used for my Oldenburg had a factory defect on one of the belly straps, the metal clip was facing the wrong way on the strap. It was my first time using it and I didn't think to check it before I bathed and was thinking all was good. I was disappointed about this. It's like "Do you need to check EVERYTHING you buy nowadays?" I wish it also had some leg straps to keep it in place more. It can still be used, but next time I'm going to check before I break out the grooming equipment/hose.
Quality: Except for the glitch in the belly band construction, the overall quality is great. It's made of sturdy honeycomb cotton and has fleece at the withers. It has 2 belly bands to keep the sheet on your horse and one buckle & loop closure at the chest. It's a pretty good sheet for the price. But for future reference, I did read that fleece is better for coolers because it wicks away moisture instead of soaking it up like cotton, which makes fleece better.
Summary: This sheet is good for those of you who are on a budget and can't afford the pricier coolers. It does do what it's supposed to, but I WOULD recommend fleece because it is supposed to be better for moisture wicking and doesn't get the whole cooler damp like a wet blanket against your horse, which can be bad in a cotton sheet if you plan to leave the cooler on for a while after bathing.
