The rug has a soft polyester lining to help prevent rubbing and keep the coat smooth. Taped seams. There is very little warmth in this rug but the light filling does allow the air to circulate to a certain extent and therefore in wet and windy conditions the coat of the horse tends not to get so flattened or clammy.

There are detachable webbing leg straps which are not sewn in – meaning that they can be removed if not required or easily replaced (without the need for expensive repairs) if damaged. At the chest there are double adjustable chest straps with D rings and quick release clips ensuring that once adjusted to the horse putting on and off is nice and quick as just two clips to attach. Velcro at the chest also features. There is a generous combo neck with neck fastenings and flap to protect and a particularly nice feature is the elasticated poll which helps to stop rain/wind going down the mane line and helps to keep the neck in place.
