200g Nylon Water Repellent Lycra Body Suit With Detachable Tail Sleeve
Manufactured from 200g nylon (which after many years of research we feel is superior to the polyester lycra) the fit of this suit is the same as the usual Ruggles body suit but has the advantage of being water repellent so will absorb less moisture in the stable or if turned out. Please note that this fabric is not water proof – it is water repellent so will repel in showers and absorb less when rolling or in the stable.
This machine washable suit is great for helping to keep the pony/horse clean for shows, hunting etc, helps to keep plaits in place and provides an extra layer of warmth if required. It is made from 4 way nylon stretch lycra with a zipper from chin to chest and also features a fleece band at nose for comfort and to help prevent rubbing/marking, belly band and leg straps. This suit has a detachable tail sleeve to help when travelling or stabled. If you prefer you can stitch the bottom to make a bag or leave as a sleeve.
In summary this useful and sensibly priced suit features are:
- Manufactured from high quality 4 way 200g nylon stretch lycra
- It is water repellent so will absorb less in stable or field
- Zipper from chin to chest – so easier to put on
- Fleece soft band on nose for extra comfort
- Leg straps
- Detachable tail sleeve
- Available in five sizes
- NB When washing this hood – do so only on cool/warm cycle or by hand and absolutely no biological solutions to be used (or if they have been used recently in your machine ensure that you do an empty hot wash before washing this item) as it will strip the water repelling treatment.
