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

Why We Love This

    Kensington Fly Boots is rated 4.3184 out of 5 by 201.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They stay up!!! I bought some hind boots last year for my old retired TB who is very intolerant of the flies! They worked great so got fronts for him this year too and a pair for my other TB - they are turned out in them 10 hours a day and they are rarely out of place when we bring them in from the pasture

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colorful practicality! My horses are fashionably stylin' in their colorful new Kensington fly boots. With the constant rains this season in the Midwest, these are as beautiful as they are functional. Applause, applause!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from WOW !!!!!! My horse has very thing skin and the flies love her and bite her till she bleeds and she is constantly stomping. I LOVE these boots She has worn them for two months now and they do not to budge on her legs despite the running around,bucking and rolling. She no longer stomps at the flies.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm so happy I took a chance on these fly boots!!! I was a little skeptical about these boots being able to stay up and not slide down my horse’s legs and cause discomfort, but I decided to give them a try because of the reviews. I’m so happy I did because they stay on nicely! They feel a little stiff coming out of the package, but they soften after a few days. There are no wear marks on my horse and there is no indication that they are bothering him in anyway. There are zero bug bites of any kind in the areas the boots cover. Usually when a product like this lasts more than 24 hours on this horse, I consider it durable! The durability tests that I have witnessed thus far are, running with his buddies, rearing and playing, and he’s been through the woods that are on the property. These boots even stayed on when he took a swim in the water tank! I plan to buy more pairs w/my next Smart Pak order to take advantage of the free shipping!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Purchased these to hopefully save feet once fly-stomping season begins on a mare that got tender feet last year. Others have said fly boots are a big help. Took a few days to get one adjusted correctly so it did not fall down. Both still twist somewhat but no biggie.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effective boots for a good price My horse was having problems with the biting flies on his legs. He was stomping non stop and very irritated. These boots have eliminated the problem. The material is sturdy and stays up well on his legs. I have used them daily for about 4 weeks and they seem to hold up fine (though he is not rough on them). The boots fit him well with room to spare (16.2 fine bone horse). My only improvement would be that these boots came in different length options. I'd like a longer/taller boot to cover more of his lower leg, but overall they work well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great I bought this a month ago for my mare that gets scratches on her socks. They stay put and are very durable. I haven't had any problems with them sliding down her legs and the first week she stomped a lot until she got used to them. They fit her just right, she's a 1200lb QH. Not sure how they would fit a smaller boned horse though. I'm very happy with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They get the job done I've used Kensington fly boots for years now. I've tried other, cheaper brands on occasion, but keep coming back to Kensington. I find that they last better if I hose them off when I remove them at night and flatten them out to remove the creases. I don't spend a lot of time at it, but I pull on them and hang them on the fence to dry.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice boot but does not hold up I have not had the a month and they are already coming apart at the seem and the fleece seems to rub if there is any moisture on the legs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable These boots are easy to put on and fit comfortably. They keep the flies away from the whole lower leg

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Sag, But Rubbed TB Ankles And Mesh Disintegrate I thought these were a sure thing when purchased, as they stated they had a lifetime warranty. Within 3 months, all the mesh around the ankles of both pairs I bought had broken/fallen apart and the fabric rubbed my TB's wussy skin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, the right product for FL weather! Tried other fly boots but these, by far, are the best for the Florida climate. They are not lined so they don't create heat and they do stand up. Both my 30+ mare and active 6-year-old gelding wear them all day w/o rubs or falling down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far! I bought these after my vet recommended some fly boots, because my mare's hind legs were swelling in reaction to the bugs. They've been great so far, but I do have to fasten the bottom strap well above her fetlocks and slide them down so they sit on top of the joint. Otherwise she winds up walking on the bottom edges.I have the matching pink fly sheet and mask too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Held up great, even with a naughty foal! These boots exceeded my expectations. I finally had to retire my pair after a year-- they survived that long on a Dutch Warmblood broodmare in pasture through two mischievous nursing foals who both seemed to love removing velcro straps. One of the three straps on one boot did get torn off a couple months ago, and that boot finally ended up a play toy between two foals after being removed this last time, may it RIP. However, I still have the one remaining boot on the mare... Figure it's better than nothing! These really helped eliminate stomping, which is incredibly important for broodmares who have foals sleeping at their feet. Great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upside down is better! I"ve been using these all summer on my 15.2 Missouri Fox Trotter. They definitely keep the flies off his front legs and are wearing really well. I keep them on him with the exception of our rides. They are really big but I've found that if I turn them upside down so that the fluffy part is on the bottom, they son't sag as much. And if they do, it's more gentle as they fall. But I do have to wrap a side inside the other for them to be secure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fly boot I have had almost every fly boot out there and none of them hold up as long as these do. They fit my 14.2 appy and my 17.1 Oldenburg. I havehad them for about two months now and theu are great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fly Boots These boots worked great for my Arabian. He is 15.2 hh and they are a perfect size, although I don't think that they will fit my 16.3 hh Thoroughbred. My Arab likes to chew everything, and these seem to be very durable. He also likes to take boots off, and these have not came off yet. I bought a different set last year that had a twisting issue, which ended up making his legs swell, these did not have that issue and they stand up well.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wouldn't stay on The product looked exactly as expected. However, it was impossible to keep them on in the pasture. After a couple of days, it was obvious they were loose, so we tightened them a little higher (over the knee). However, in 3-4 days, they were covered in mud and sagging, and a day later one came off in the pasture, shredded.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They stay up! I bought these for my 15.1hh TB mare because the flies bother her legs so much that she is constantly stamping her feet. The instant I put these on she stopped and seemed so much more comfortable. I tried them for about 5 hours the first time and went back to the barn to check and they were still on and hadn't sagged one bit. I plan to have these on her 24/7 this summer as they make a huge difference in her comfort and I am pretty confident they aren't going to sag.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from horrible fit and don't last long at all These are horrible. They are made for ponies or something tiny. I have a walking horse and they are way to short to cover the leg and not wide enough to go around comfortably. The fit is bad too. They don't stay up and are constantly falling down near the cornet band no matter how tight or loose I make each strap. Total waste of money. They didn't even last 2 weeks before holes appeared; where usually my horse can have a 4 leg set last over 2 fly seasons. I will never purchase again. I will have to do dome research to find my brand that I love but the local shops don't carry anymore.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Nice I've had a set of four for two years. They held up very well for these years, until of my horse landed in a bad living situation and the boots were destroyed due to the amount of horse-skirmishes and mud. Yet, in all the mayhem of those weeks, Only one boot was ripped to the point where I had to fix it. I meerly hemed the bottom cloth up to meet the mesh higher, and the boot functioned perfectly. They're good quality for what you want, and come in cute colors to boot!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice boots Just got them today, so not sure on durability, but they fit pretty well, seemed to slip down when I asked him to trot around, but I put some bell boots on and that seemed to help them stay up :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! These stay up well and help keep my horse comfortable by keeping the flies off his legs. Fit well and quality construction.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked Great. May not last as long as I wish... I bought these a couple of months ago and i have been very pleased with fit. They not only fit well, but they stay on and don't sag down the leg. I had two pairs, and used them on two different horses: the flyboots look great on one horse (the quiet one), and show some definite sign of wear on the other horse (more active). The wear is such that the weave is getting loose around the fetlock. They are still usable, but may not last more than one summer or a summer and a half. I still like them and would buy them again because of the way they fit and stay put.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worsst fly boots ever Nothing good to say about this product. After one day of use, one of the plastic stays broke. By day three, the mesh started to pull apart and the back of my horse's fetlock was rubbed raw. Never again!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fly boots! I just recently bought my second set after having the first ones probably over 6 years ago. It's taken forever for my oldest horse to actually put holes in these I couldn't easily fix by using a nail to push the fibers back over. I also use them to keep his socks clean the night before a show. Keep him comfortable and clean all at the same time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent protection I am quite happy with these boots. I have a mare that has a knee that is starting to give her a little pain now and then and these keep her from having to stamp flies. The furry liner does a good job at not attracting seeds from weeds/grass in the pasture. They stay up well if you get the middle strap secure above the fetlock. The mesh is coming away from the stitching in a couple places, but it has not affected the protection.
