    Crusader Breast Cancer Benefit Fly Mask is rated 4.654 out of 5 by 211.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable Mask I bought this in Large Pony size for my Dutch Warmblood Yearling. She has GIGANTIC ears and the ears actually fit her, so I the mask is in the ear department. I had her name embroidered in pink and it looks precious. This is my filly's first fly mask and she has not objected to wearing it, does not seem to have any issues seeing while wearing it, and it keeps her eyes and ears bug free!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy Bug-Free Horses Our horses were being tormented by flys in their eyes and gnats in their ears. No more! I find the Crusader fly masks to be durable and a good fit for a number of different sized heads (horse size for big headed 2 year old on up to full sized adult warmbloods). We've gotten some laughs because the pink ears do look pretty silly. We did the monogramming which looks so much better than writing names on them with Sharpies. I love the double closure, it keeps on masks on during chewy-face play time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this fly mask! It is a very cute mask on one of our mares. I love the pink. We have purchased several Crusader fly masks over the years and it's my favorite brand. They fit well- stay on better- and last longer than other brands we've tried. I will be ordering more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome fly mask I purchased the Cashel Crusader fly mask for my "pinky" palomino. It does an awesome job detering flies, but also helps with UV protection! Highly recommend this fly mask!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only fly mask I buy I love these fly masks, the long nose helps keep the flies away better. I love how the velcro is attached by elastic to ensure a secure fit. Usually stays on but with enough effort on your horses part any fly mask will come off. No rips, tears or fraying after 3 hearty years of use. And The pink ears just look dashing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fly mask that I have ever owned This fly mask is hard to beat, my horse has severe allergies and for some reason this dose the trick. I love this mask and will never buy a different one!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from never disappoints A durable, great fitting fly mask for a very reasonable price. It doesn't rub and the eye darts keep the mask away from their eyes and doesn't lose it's shape. I won't buy anything else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fly Mask I got one of these for my pony 3 years ago and finally had to buy a new one this year. I did have to sew up the ears where holes appeared every so often, but my pony is really hard on fly masks and tries to get them off at every opportunity. The fit is great and true to size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fly Mask with a Purpose! I ordered the Crusader Breast Cancer Fly Mask for my mare, Cheyenne. When I got it out of the box, I thought it was a tad large. However, when I put it on her, the fit was great and she loves it! And she is happy to wear the fly mask to stand up to breast cancer! I would highly recommend this mask.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice fly mask Loved this fly mask, it fits very well. Stands up to hard use. A little pricey, but it made it through fly season this year, which is a major accomplishment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crusader Fly Mask-great purchase I own a paint mare who has blue eyes and a lot of white on her face. She is pastured and needs sun protection or she burns. This mask is great because it protects her eyes, nose and entire head area from burning and perhaps skin cancer later.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from what I hoped for My horse has a pink nose and gets burned easily. I had the original crusader mask (black/gray) and that covered his nose. The newer version (gray/gray) was a bit shorter than the original, so he ended up with sunburn. I looked at the pink mask and thought it looked longer than the gray one, so I decided to order it and try it. It is longer than the gray mask, so my poor gelding has to wear pink now :)These masks hold up well to my horse constantly trying to pull them off, I still have one of my original black/gray ones, but like to have a few in rotation just in case he does succeed in losing one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fly Mask The Crusader fly mask with the long nose is wonderful. Love that it supports breast cancer research--that means a lot to me. The long nose protects his face so much better than the standard one. The free monogram is a great bonus--one for which we were teased at the barn because his nickname is already "P's Big Baby," but hey, everyone likes the monogram and wishes their mask had one too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice flymask Only 'problem' is that the other horses call him Ralphie now.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sizing changes I've used Cashel Fly masks since they came out and have loved them. This new one just doesn't fit the way the older ones did. Seems all the sizings are smaller. So my horse can't wear a horse size any more, but has to wear the warmblood size and it is way too big, except the ears. I've also found my smaller horse, w/ smaller head also doesn't fit in the horse size well either, her eyelashes hang out and the ears are not quite long enough. Wish they would go back to their old sizing. Material and workmanship are great as usual.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good buy The quality & construction of the fly mask is top-notch. I really appreciate the option to personalize. Does a good job while looking sharp!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fly Mask For Draft This is my second of this same fly mask for my Belgian Draft mare. Fits her very well in the ears but had to cut velcro down for throut latch as was a bit big. My one from last season is holding up well just bought another one for a spare. Color is great and cute with pink ears. Monogramming with flower matches great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full Fly Mask Bought this full fly mask with the long nose hoping it would help with my paints badly sunburned nose. Despite putting 50spf on her, she still was burning badly. After a few days of using this mask, her nose has healed and is doing fine. I highly recommend this to the people who own light faced/nosed horses. I use it with a halter to keep in more secure. Never bothers her - and I believe she even realizes it is giving her relief. I highly recommend - very nicely made - exc. quality!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Fly Mask Purchased I bought this particular fly mask after the others I tried all rubbed under the jawline. I love the colors and the fact that Smartpak does embroidery. My smaller TB mare is outside 24/7 in this fly mask and it does not rub and fits her well (I had to get a cob/arab size). The material is also very sturdy and it still looks like new despite being worn outside all the time. My only complaint is that the velcro underneath is still too large, I had to cut the bottom velcro strap so that it latched properly. Overall though this is a great purchase and definately the best fly mask I have used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully functional! Durable, easy on & off, washable and best of all no bugs in the ears or the eyes...what more could you ask for?!?
    Date published: 2011-08-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite fly mask This is the only fly mask I buy now, I buy the arab size for my 14.2 hand pony and they wear like iron and give her great coverage from flies. The longer length protects her nose which can sunburn easily. And the free embroidery keeps her mask from getting "lost" in a big barn. highly reccomend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why buy anything else? These masks are simply awesome. They fit well - my 16 hand T-bred fits perfectly in the Horse size. They last multiple seasons, built to stay on and not fall apart! Can't imagine wasting money on any other brand!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Fly Mask Not only is this super cute, especially embroidered, but it is durable! My mare is not the friendliest to fly masks so I was skeptical, but I have had it over a month and not a single tear or snag!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I buy one every year I buy one of these a year. They work wonderfully and my mare is content wearing it. The one improvement I'd like to see is the ears. They seem to tear easily and I end up reparing it a couple times a season before the ears tear beyond repair. Fix that to extend the longevity, and I think the product would be just about perfect!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute & functional fly mask! I purchased the mask with the pink ears and regular-length nose, and I just love how it makes my mare (who is a total goof of a personality to begin with) look like a giant bunny. :) I always get compliments from everyone on how cute her fly mask is, and it's just a bonus to know that the pink color helps benefit breast cancer research, as well! My mare is a 16.1 TB with a normal-length head for her height and a fine/delicate muzzle, and the horse size fits her perfectly. My mare is very touchy/sensitive, but the soft material on the ears doesn't bother her at all, and similarly, the balance between softness and stiffness of the plastic mesh over her eyes is perfect, as well (not so stiff as to make her itch, but also not so soft that it collapses onto and rubs her eyes). I only have two criticisms: 1) I noticed that the mask I ordered 6/10/11 has a different type of Velcro closure (double) from the mask I ordered in 2009 (single), and I personally preferred the single because it was easier to take on and off--the new double Velcro closure can be a little tricky with one hand. I never had trouble with the single Velcro closure falling off or getting the mask pulled off by other curious horses, so I think the double Velcro is an unnecessary difficulty. Hopefully Cashel will eventually go back to the single closure in the future! 2) My mare is not particularly hard on her gear, but in terms of durability, our old mask lasted us just over a year. Fairly early on, she somehow tore a hole in one of the ears (which I was able to repair), and then recently, she tore a big hole in the plastic mesh over one eye (which could not be mended), which is why I bought a new version of the same mask...but I guess having to replace a fly mask every 1.5 years isn't really too terrible. I was otherwise perfectly happy with the fit/function of this mask, which is why I decided to get another one. The best part of this particular purchase was that SmartPak was offering free monogramming at the time, so now no one can mix up my mare's fly mask with anyone else's due to the absolutely beautiful flowery pink script on the nose of the fly mask that spells out my horse's name. THANK YOU, SMARTPAK!!!!!! :)
