    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the embroidery I've ready reviewed this wonderful fly mask, but wanted to add a photo for those of you considering getting it embroidered. It turned out really cute- everyone at the barn comments on how nice it is!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, soft ear material Using another brand, by the end of fly season the tips of my horses ears are rubbed a bit hairless and the material at the eye creases is really frayed. I usually can not get a full 2 seasons from it. So far the Crusader is working well, I have not seen flys or gnats get under it, it has stayed put through head rubbing on trees and while rolling and the ear material is very soft while feeling sturdy. So far I am very happy with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from By far the most comfortable and durable fly mask. I've gone through just about every fly mask made and these are the best by far. They fit better and are very adjustable. The long-nose version is the only thing that effectively protected my bald-face mare's nose from sunburn. Easier to keep on too. It's worth paying a little bit more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves it so do I! I put this on my horse the other day because the Sun been out and bugs are just know coming out to. My horse loved it look really cute comfortable and stylish! I think what really make it so much better is the forlock opening keeps the hair out of his eyes! I also liked that there isn't fuzy fleece on the outside for comfort that he easily tears off with other fly mask. I has a nice soft fabric that you can tell is more comfortable and does not itch! All around this fly mask is well made and durable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The do-all fly mask I have tried several fly masks in the past, but now I only use The Crusader. It is durable with it's double Velcro closure that eliminates barn friends pulling it off. The mesh used for the ears is very breathable and soft. If there is any weak point on them it would be the ears as the light material makes them more susceptible to tears, but I have only had that happen to one and I still wouldn't change that material. Perhaps the biggest thing I like about the Crusader is that it is flexible and light so as to not cause any rubs. Another brand I tried had a heavy duty trim which I noticed rubbed my horse's nose. Living in a hot climate, I can also say that when I take my horse's Crusader off he is still cool underneath. It does run a bit large, however I just trim the Velcro tabs and it fits perfectly. Highly recommend this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds up in any weather My horse has to wear a fly mask year round due to an eye problem. This is by far the toughest mask out there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good quality product 'horse' size fit my 15 hand mare very well, maybe a little large. the fabric is soft but seems durable, no rubs on the nose or crown. I like that it is contoured over the eyes. I'm very happy with this fly mask!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from True to size Love this fly mask and so does my horse. True to size. I purchased the Arabian size and it actually fits correctly!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from well made-hard to destroy We use these for our horses that are on full time turn out and they work great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I bought the large pony size for my 12h pony that usually wears a pony/arab/yearling size depending on brand. Great fit for him, the eye darts are placed perfectly to not rub. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and Great Fit! I bought one of these two years ago for my OTTB mare - the horse size fit her perfectly even with her donkey-ish ears. No rub marks on her face and her ears were bite free. It also decreased the incidence of her runny eyes. She's worn it for three summers and it just now needs replacement - durable product! I did routine maintenance on it though, washed once weekly, cleaned the ears, and brushed out the velcro and stitching.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and works well. I bought two of these last month for my two American Quarter Horses. I had to get Warmblood sizing for one of them as he has a large head for a Quarter Horse and it fits him perfectly. I definitely recommend getting the mask with ears. My boys' ears are completely free of insect bites and irritation now. I had them monogramed also and love the extra touch. I didn't need to but it makes me happy! I haven't rated the product for durability because at this point I don't know how they'll hold up. But they seem to made very well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far so good! I definitely wanted ears covered and I am very satisfied with this fly mask. I have only used it for a few weeks, but I believe it will hold up well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I just recently bought this fly mask, but everyone at my barn has one but none with the ears except mine. The quality is amazing and they hold up very well. From all day turnout to just a couple of hours they do their job. They don't rub the horses face and they won't come undone. The only problem I have with my fl mask is that I bought a Standard size instead of Warmblood so it fits a bit snug but not to tight. The ear part is made of a sort of spandex material luckily because my horse has giant ears so they are barely fitting :) but they would fit a normal size ear horse perfectly. (All my bonnets are stretched out for this big guy).. All in All I would recommend this product to anyone and everyone!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I have a hard-to-fit Chincoteague pony (13hh, around 700lbs), and the Large Pony/Yearling size fit him perfectly! Most masks are too big or too small, and this one was just right! He's only been wearing it for about a month, but so far it's held up nicely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fly mask I have been buying Crusader fly masks for over 20 years. They last forever even with repeated washing in the clothes washer and dryer. After 15 years one of the masks finally wore out and I had to replace it. Liked the newer improved and stretchy fastener.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from happy with my purchase, ordered an "Arabian" due to a finer head shape and it fit great. Very durable

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Small Horse Size Fit is Off Cheyenne appears to be in the middle of the Small Horse size and the Horse size. The horse size is too big on her cheeks, and the small horse size appears to fix the cheek issue, but somehow remains really loose on the top. Twice she has worn it and twice it has popped off her ears and fallen to be stuck halfway off of her. In general, he quality of these masks has fallen a lot over the years. It might be time for me to try different brands again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell apart in <1 week Bought two of these, one for each horse...BOTH were completely destroyed in less than a week. Ears had so many holes in them after a week that they are just hanging off now. The mesh over their faces have also come apart. SO disappointing. They are back to their old masks that have lasted years--had purchased the new ones, as they had a free monogramming sale. Bummer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Envy of the barn This is the best fly mask I have ever owned. No rips or tears & my mare has yet to pull it off. Only downside is the sizing is a little large Velcro wise.. Other than that it keeps bugs out and is very easy to brush dirt off of. I also added the custom embroidery and it turned out fantastic. Lots of compliments of how cute the mask turned out!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the horses can't get Crusader's off as easy as som We bought all new fly masks this year. The Cursaders seem to last longer than other brands. (we've tried a few) I got the embroidered name on each of them and my granddaughter thinks that's pretty neat

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits very well I like the way it is padded around my horses nose so he does not get rubbed

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonder fly mask Loved the fit and the embroidery! The coverage is great for fly protection since my boys ears are sensitive

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Declining quality I have 3 of these masks with ears that I rotate; two are on their third year, and one is just a couple months old. The old ones are still OK, but the new one is somewhat shredded: the ears got holes in the first two weeks and one is now hanging almost off the mask. I'm guessing Cashell's subcontractors for fabric and sewing in China have substituted cheaper means for these expensive masks.Other horses at the barn have this mask and the ears are too short for most of them, including mine.On the plus side, my new mask is still better than my last Supermask II with ears, which within a few weeks became an eye hazard.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and light I love this soft mask with great ear covers,two Velcro straps, plenty of room, and a fore lock opening.. Better yet my mares love it. They dive in. I love the personalized names I got for free too.
