50g 1200D Lightweight Combo Turnout
The 50g 1200D lightweight combo turnout is a rug we thoroughly recommend as we believe the horses don’t seem to get too hot if the weather warms up – probably the thin layer allows the air to circulate a bit which helps to stop them getting too clammy and in rainy/windy weather stops the coat flattening so much. Also, the 50g filling helps the horses to stop getting chilly if the weather turns wet and windy, as it just acts as a bit of a buffer between the horse and the elements without overheating them. It is an excellent rug for hardier types in colder months or brilliant in Spring/Autumn when more than a no fill is required.
This most useful of rugs features 1200D waterproof, breathable and Teflon coated outer fabric – the benefit of this being that they are tougher, more stain and moisture resistant so rain beads off the fabric making them less heavy and easier to dry out. There are double cross surcingles with rubber washers to help stop unfastening and the whole rug is lined with soft polyester to help stop the coat rubbing and keep shiny. There are generous shoulder gussets to allow the horse easier movement. There is a very generous tail flap with reflective strip and webbing detachable leg straps. At the chest there are double adjustable chest straps with D rings and quick release clips – the benefit here being once the chest is adjusted correctly for the horse then putting on and off is quick and easy as just two clips to fasten. The rug has a combo neck with double Velcro neck fastenings with flap to protect and a particularly good feature is the elasticated poll which helps to keep the neck in place and prevent wind/rain going down the mane line. Taped seams also feature. There are reflective strips at the chest and hind quarters and on the tail flap which are extremely useful for visibility especially if having to lead on roads.
The rug comes packed in a zipped bag with handles – ideal for storing the rug when not in use.
