Amigo Bug Buster
Bug Protection = A+, Fit = C-
Our poor guy is hypersensitive to bugs and thankfully this gives him some relief, until our N TX weather heats up and then this sheet is just too warm. The fit is kind of odd, to get the length right it really hangs around his belly, and he's halter bred and not exactly light-boned. It actually fits our Appy better widthwise--although she's not as long as him, she's wider through the barrel--ok, she's a tank--and it doesn't gap as much on her. The drop is very long on him even though he's over 15 hands, but I don't mind because it helps minimize the bugs. Has held up well through the years with no rips in sight, which I can't say for his turnout blankets :(. Just wondering how many washes before the bug repellent wears off.

great bug sheet!
If you're looking for 'full coverage', this is the sheet for your horse. My chestnut gelding is a typical 'red head' and gets very agitated with any kind of bug. Between the Amigo bug buster, with neck cover, and his full size 'bug bonnet', there was no place a bug could even get near him! He's in heaven!!

Not the best Fly Sheet for the narrower horse
I really liked the idea of the repellent infused fabric, but when the blanket showed up it was far to big for my thoroughbred. It fit him well length-wise, but there is not enough ability for the blanket to be tightened through the bellyband, or the neck cover to be tightened- so this may not fit the light boned horse. There are no leg straps, only the tail band, and strap. We made due with it, but after only 1.5 months the blanket rotated on him during turnout and was destroyed. I will stick with the heavier duty fly sheets that have leg straps and the ability to tighten the blanket on the horse better.

Fly Sheet for Quarter Horse
This fly sheet is one of the softest I've ever purchased. My daughter's QH mare is quite sensitive and she does not complain about wearing this sheet. The only reason I marked it a 4 on durability is haven't had it that long. The size runs true on length, but because she's only 14.3h, it's a bit long on her, although not enough to be a safety issue.

Great fly sheet
This is the 6th one we have purchased over the last 2 years. They fit true to blanket size, are sturdy and hold up well. All six get turned out all night, they stay in correct position. Excellent!!

Love this Fly Sheet
I have been very skeptical of claims of breathablity in a fly sheet. This one is great! It is light weight, but is holding up fine so far during turnout. The fit just what my 18 hand warmblood needed. The leg arches allow for much more freedom of movement than any blanket or sheet I've ever tried. I hope they start putting those in winter blankets too. Best fly sheet I've seen!
