And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The new Mio Fly Sheet is made from an ultra breathable soft knitted polyester fabric with UV protection to keep your horse cool and protected from the sun and bugs all summer long.  Classic Horseware cut with patented front leg arch, and integrated (non-removable) neck cover.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seemed well made but didn't fit my horse I liked the look and feel of this fly sheet, but the fit was poor. Both too long and too tight across the shoulders. My horse wore a Rambo Protector last year, and that fit much better. That said, my horse is hard to fit, so this sheet may be great for a more typical build.My horse never wore it, so I can't comment on durability, but I would not have expected it to last two seasons like the pricier Rambo did or the Bakers (I have a Baker going on 4 seasons). I returned and replaced with a Baker, and am going to figure out how to attach a neck protector to it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love This FlySheet My horse can wear this in very hot weather & not sweat. I love the long drop of the tail piece & sides of sheet. I personally have rolled back the neckpiece & secured it with velcro when I don't think it is needed. But glad it is there when it is.I also keep one in the trailer to have at shows.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fitting flysheet This flysheet fits very nicely on my Friesian sport horse. I love the attached neck because it stays up by her ears and she does not have to have a halter on. Its a great fit and looks really nice on her. The big negative is velcro pulls the material and although I am very careful to keep the velcro closed it still snags. The sheet is only a few weeks old and looks very worn around the velcro areas.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great fit if your horse isn't too hard on his clothes, this sheet is a good buy...it can tear from teeth or fences, but I would rather sew up any holes than make my guy wear vinyl...as with all amigo sheets, the fit is superb and, even if you don't attach it to a halter, the neck doesn't slide down

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I LOVE this flysheet! Great price for a great product. I never detach the detachable neck fly covers anyways so this is a great way to save some money. Horseware Ireland is a great brand. The only thing I'm a little disappointed with is if the velcro touches the sheet it pills a little. I just started closing the velcro when I take the blanket off which helps. Otherwise I am thrilled with this blanket!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this sheet! This is the best fly sheet I've seen or used. I own 3- keeps my horses cooler than without a sheet and comfortable during this hot, humid, buggy summer in the midwest. It has also greatly decreased the sun bleaching on my black horse. I love the soft mesh and lined shoulders. Really amazing value on great product. Runs big but does fit great otherwise. Thank you for the free shipping!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fly Sheet Great product. My horse is so happy when he is turned out with it on. The clasps on the neck piece have extra velcro which provides secure fastening. and the same is true of the front closures. the fabric held up really well even when he pulled it off the rack into his stall and used it to lay on all night—it survived with no rips or tears.I was so happy with the sheet that I bought a second one so that i can wash one while he wears the other. Easy to wash, too! Don't put in drier tho. Better to hang dry.i bought size 75 which fits nicely but not snuggly. he likes that it is not tight. he normally wears a 74 sheet or winter rug.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Fly Sheet! Fits both my TB and Paint beautifully! Never rubs, super light weight, and stays in place! Does rip easy (but they go out of their way to undress one another) but at this price it's not a budget buster to replace!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Fit These are by far the best turn out fly sheet I have ever purchased. The attached neck actually covers the neck, even when they are not grazing. They roll, buck, run.....still stays put. BEST VALUE YET!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value for a Great product This fly-sheet is well made and fits great. I also own the light blue Amigo fly sheet and really like the fit, wearabilty, and washability. Since I never seem to take the removable neck piece off the blue Amigo fly sheet, I figured that the Amigo Mio was a better value. I'm very happy with it. Lightweight, fits great, washes well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it so far So far this fly sheet has been great! Fits my ottb really well. He also doesn't get sweaty under it even in the hot hot weather. He's got thin TB skin and need the protection.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it alot, but... I really like the weight of this fly sheet/neck combo. Love the color. I am a little sad this sheet runs a bit big and there are no real ajustments that can be made. The afore mentioned lightweight fabric snags rather easily -and Buckaroo generally isnt too hard on his wardrobe. All in all a fine purchase and value. Not recommended for an outdoor, rambunctions horse.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price! So I compared this fly sheet to several other fly sheets/brands and this seemed to be a better value then the others! the holes in the weave are tighter (less bug bites), has a hood and uv protection (weatherbeeta ones i saw didn't )! I wish it had leg straps, but it has stayed in place thus far! it has a nice long tail flap and great overall protection! Even if it doesn't hold up all year I am sure it will hold up just as long as the ones that cost almost 2x as much :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sheet! This is the second of these sheets I have bought. The one I got last year is still in pretty good shape even after being used all summer, turned out with other horses and in the trees and brush. I bought this one for a new horse and now everyone is happy and bug free.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I have used these fly sheets for years. They work great here in the south. I love how they come in horse & pony sizes.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I'm usually a big fan of the Horseware Ireland products and own quite a few of them, including the Amigo Mio Lite turnout sheet, which fits my 16h Holsteiner mare perfectly. So how wrong could I go with the Amigo Mio fly sheet? Really wrong. It binds in front (fits everywhere else, though the neck cover is very generous), I tried to leave it on for a day to see if it would sort of self adjust to sit in the proper position (and we really need a flysheet, she's a grey), but it didn't. Plus she had bites on her back and neck which were covered by the sheet. It also already has a hole in it (again: on less than 24 hours). And she's turned out by herself in a very safe grassy paddock.I consider this a complete waste of money. And I still need to get a good flysheet. I'll try the Turtleneck next, and if that doesn't work the Rambo (though I'm afraid that might be too long for her since I had to make knots in the straps of her Rambo rain sheet.)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Blanket, not very durable I've had it for not to long put it on my guy maybe 6 or 7 times and it already has a couple small holes on it *sighs*. They also run fairly large as well. It's pretty I thought it was durable but it's not one of the more durable ones out there unfortunately.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product for the Price I bought this sheet for my gelding who is undergoing a skin treatment for his sarcoids and has to be protected from the sun. Unfortunately the sheet didn't quite cover all his treatments areas (one area is on his poll) but it was very effective at keeping the flies at bay. It got snagged quite a bit but it hasn't ripped (even with my demolisher of a horse). Ran fairly true to size and washes up well. Overall its a really great product for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amigo Flysheet GREAT product like any horsewear product. it's really good for hot areas because it's not to thick and still keeps the flies away.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Complete coverage This fly sheet provides nice coverage. So far no rips or tears, however this particular horse is very easy on blankets and sheets.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ummm This sheet lasted about 3 weeks before it literally fell apart.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Forget this one! I bought this for my mare and it lasted 4 days! This is a lightweight material and it tore very easily. I normally love the Amigo products, but not in this case. If you have a nice barn and your horse doesn't move around much, lay down, or stretch, this may work. But for any normal situations, it's simply too fragile for my needs.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for... Bought two of these, one for each of my horses. Both are super easy on clothes, I actually don't think I've ever had to repair any of my mares blankets ever. Within a week, where the velcro neck closures were, there were holes forming on my gelding's sheet. My mare had torn her sheet from poll to tail. Not sure how...unless a tree branch reached out and tore the sheet in half. Threw my mare's sheet away. Holes started forming in the sheet material near the belly straps on my gelding's sheet. Soon, he had large tears in his sheet. Threw the sheet away. Bought the blue Amigo sheets for both horses. They fit the same (well) but the material is much stronger and the construction seems to be better. Will test them out next summer.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Amigo mio fly sheet My very sweet mare wore it two days and in the field got two holes. I would not recommend this to any one unless their horse has a padded stall and never goes out side. Then I am not so sure it would not snag on the padding. It snagged when it came in contact with its own velcros. Save your money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for hot weather My horse is a mosquito magnet, and he's not very heat-tolerant. He's also a difficult to fit shape. I usually rotate through 3 different fly sheets in the summer to keep him from getting rubs in one spot or another. This sheet fits him perfectly. He can wear it everyday without getting rubs. It also seems to not hold much heat - he's rarely too warm when wearing it, even on really hot days. It washes nicely and dries fast. I love this sheet!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought in a hurry and it works. The insects, mosquitoes in particular, have been horrible over the past month. My mare was flipping out despite layers of fly and mosquito repellent so I decided to have this sheet overnighted.I was expecting a flimsy sheet for the price but to my surprise the quality is excellent. The neck cover stays up well on its own and my mare--who typically hates sheets and blankets--was relieved when I put this on her.She did get sweaty beneath it after a really hot, humid day (heat index over 100) but on the not-so-hot days she was fine. She's rolled in the mud in it, etc, and it only has one small tear.I felt that the belly straps were too long so I knotted each one and that seemed to make the length perfect...just a tip for those with smaller horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from relief and comfort - no more fly's this summer the flies were not only high in population but they were large in overall size - like I have never seen. This is the first time I have purchased and used fly sheets on my horses. The Amigo fly sheet arrived quickly upon ordering and was a confortable fit for the horse. The material is soft and conforms to the horses body no rubbing or sore spots. I was concerned that for my large quarter horse that the fit may be to snug or not enough allowance in the chest and girth - however I was pleasantly suprised, the sheet fit her nicely. The price could not be beat - very happy with this purchase

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for reasonable price I have a Percheron who is really hard on sheets and blankets, and was worried he would tear through this in a heartbeat, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a fly sheet and thought I'd give it a try. It's been on my horse 24/7 in pasture, for 1.5 months now and it's still in great shape. There are tiny snag holes near where the velcro on the neck is, but it doesn't affect the functionality of the sheet. He is never sweaty underneath it, and it has helped to keep his coat jet black this summer. I will be purchasing another one of these for my other horse.FYI draft horse owners: My horse usually wears an 81", which is what I ordered for him, but if I were to do it over again, I would order him an 84" to give him a little more room from chest to rump.
