SmartPak Thinsulate Turnout Blanket
Three winters and counting
My Thinsulate Turnout Blanket has officially made it through three Minnesota winters. I actually purchased a replacement, thinking it wouldn't make it, but (other than being muddy), it still looks great, with a few easily mendable rips from other horses. One thing I like about this turnout is how thin it is-- I can mend it on my own machine, so I'm saving the price of sending it out for mending. So far, the replacement blanket is staying in it's packaging. Hopefully this will make it another winter or two. I always get compliments on it because it's very good looking and obviously well-made.

Really pleased with this blanket. My horse is tough on his blankets and this one has not one sign of wear, although it's only been used for a couple months. My horse usually wears a 74-76, ordered a 75" and fits him perfectly. The high neck is a little snug on him, though it fits well through the shoulders and I've not noticed any rubs, so I'm happy. The hind leg straps tend to slip (ie... get longer, but they aren't actually stretched out), so they require adjusting nearly every time I'm out, but they could easily be replaced, and the blanket stays secure, so I'm not really bothered. Finally, can't forget-- the thinsulate seems to do an adequate job providing warmth, despite it's deceiving light weight!

This blanket is awesome. I had a really bad chest injury that I'm recovering from and this blanket has been so nice because it's so lightweight.
My only wish is that it had snaps on the front and better quality leg straps (they get loose every other day or so).
I got a 68" for my 14h cutting horse mare. She's very slight and this blanket fits very well.

Well made blanket, feels durable. Warm and light. However leg straps are very flimsy and stretch out quickly. Blanket fits true to size. Overall I am pretty happy with it and would buy again.

Compared to others I have purchased, this is one of the best!

very good blanket
Very light and plenty warm. I have not had it long enough to make comments about durability but it appears well made. It fits true to size. My horse wears 78 which is what I ordered and it fits well. The only complaint I have is leg straps so far. They are kind of flimsy. Otherwise great blanket. Would buy again
