As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Fortiflex Flatback Bucket is rated 4.964285714285714 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bucket Not much to say about a bucket, but this one looks good and the price is right. Can't testify to longevity yet, but I assume they'll be in the rotation for a long while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bucket at a great price! The perfect size bucket for watering, etc. Good quality and put up with the abuse that horses can dish out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fortiflex Flatback Bucket Love the bucket, just the right size and everything the ad said, excellent quality and price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bucket There a probably a million and one uses for these buckets. I have at least two for each of my horses, in their particular colors. I have found these buckets cheaper other places, but once you factor in shipping SmartPak wins!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from don't waste your money on any other bucket! This is a super strong bucket! Not some cheap one. Big too!
Date published: 2013-06-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product These buckets are far superior to using "recycled" 5 gallon pails. They hold up well to all the abuse that the weather and the horses can dish out, such as freezing full of water in the winter or use by a horse as a scratching post. The flat back also makes them easier to carry when full of water and easier and nicer to hang from a post or wall than a a round bucket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality Good quality bucket. Sturdy, durable, and easy to use. I use it to soak beet pulp and cover it with an E-Z on bucket cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great water buckets! I've used Fortiflex buckets for about 5 years...I've got three eye hooks on the wall of each of my stalls, so that I can hang up to 3 buckets on the hottest of days. These are very sturdy, quality buckets. Every once in a while--probably after about a year--I'll have buckets that start to warp. I think this happens with any water buckets though. When I replace the warped ones, I re-use them as garden totes! Great to put tools for yard work in to carry around the yard, so even after they are no longer water buckets, they are still useful!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality I'll know more after using it for a winter, but appears to be a nice quality bucket and was a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bucket Exactly what i was looking for, still looks sharp even after being used for weeks by a hay dunker. Perfect. And it shipped in a neat little package, super fast. Great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these buckets My gelding has two water buckets in his stall... one is a Fortiflex and the other is another brand. The Fortiflex bucket is the only one he drinks out of! Either his highness is offended by the color of the other bucket (it's pink) or he's just got good taste, but he'll be getting another Fortiflex bucket soon to replace the other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy buckets for farm and home use I got a value pack of these buckets to use in my horse's stall and for use at home. Excellent quality for the money- sturdy and well made.
Date published: 2012-06-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from For a bucket, its pretty nice I bought the blue bucket so that I could check each day to be sure it was getting scrubbed - the light color allows me to do this easily. It lays well against the stall wall, and does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Price It is less expensive than other brands of the same kind but just as good of quality.
Date published: 2012-02-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product I had bought some "better buckets" but they do not work for hauling water. They are good for just hanging in the barn though. These are way better for packing water.
Date published: 2012-02-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fortiflex Flatback Bucket Excellent quality; durable. Although I have a water tank in the paddock I like having a bucket with water in the stalls too. (My horses have open access to paddock and stall) The 5 gallon size is just right.
