    Kensington Fly Mask with Ears is rated 4.2347 out of 5 by 98.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It stays on I bought this in the medium size which is Arab sized. I didn't read close enough. My horse is 15.2 ApHC mare who usually wears cob. Anyway, this is a little small and I agree the ears are really close together which will likely work on an Arab but less so on a QH etc. I have the next size up on my Appendix mare and it's fits well. The bottom line: they stay during turnout and hold up well, and are easy to wash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from stands up with my active crew This is my 3rd year purchasing kensington fly protection wear. Use mask, leg wraps & sheet to keep a very fussy horse who will run all day from bugs without them. Even considered having to sell him at one point.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Made My Horse Sweat This is a great fly mask however I wish it was a bit more breathable. The fleece around the ears made my horse sweat a lot so it got super itchy for him. It's fine for cooler days but then the flies aren't really out anyway. I wish it didn't make my horse sweat because it looks so cute on!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Was wonderful--until his neighbor destroyed it! This mask fit my horse better than any flymask I've tried--and he is hard to fit--he has a Thoroughbred head but it is huge! So, he's always stuck between horse and warmblood sizes. I still, like all flymasks, had to jerry-rig the seams and non-fleece edges with moleskin to help with rubs. The fleece doesn't stay that fleece-y for long. And I wish it came in lighter colors with light trim--it's hot when we use flymasks here! Ears fit nicely and velcro was super sticky. Others might be interested to know that I ordered 6 different flymasks to try simultaneously. I tried them on myself to "see what I could see" through them and this one had better visibility than most. Very classy looking too!So, basically I thought it was great--until his neighbor ripped a hole through it and pulled it off of my boy, badly scraping up his nose in the process! I nearly caught him in the act, as he was still parading around with it, completely destroyed in his mouth in the neighboring paddock when I got there! BTW the velcro was still attached together. I've had a lot of different flymasks on my guy and this has never happened with his neighbor, so I'm wondering if there was something attractive about the pattern or the fleece edging?? I'm not going to repeat the experiment for the sake of my boy's nose... And that it only lasted a week!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from kensington fly mask with ears This is the best fly mask with ears I have bought. My horse actually keeps this one on. Seems to be well made and latches on to a snug fit. Roomy eye darts which I love. You cant go wrong with this fly mask.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Very Strange Fit I bought this fly mask because I needed something a little more heavily constructed than the Cashel one, plus I liked the fleece lined edges. While it is definitely made of sturdier materials and looked like it would hold up a lot better than the Cashel, the fit at the poll and ears is terrible. The ears are way too close together; there's not a horse in the world that actually has ears with that little space between them. The mask actually rubbed hair out at the bases of the outsides of my horse's ears. The actual head/jaw portion of the mask fit properly, so going up a size wasn't the solution. Kensington needs to re-design this fly mask so that the ears are placed the proper width apart, and then let me know because once that fit problem is solved, I'd love to try this fly mask again. Until then, sadly, I have no choice but to return it and go back to the Cashel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cute! I bought this in a size medium for my horse who where's a cob size bridle and horse size halter and it fits great! I love the way it looks and it has extra room in the ears if your horse has big ones! I would defiantly buy another.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome fly mask I have this mask in the green plaid, horse size. It fits my 16hh warmblood horse really well. The feature I particularly love is the elastic insert on the double lock throat strap. This allows me to tighten the mask up so bugs can't fly in, but allow it to still be comfortable and stay on. The material is sturdy, with softer material for the ears. The cut is generous enough, and the colors are very nice. Overall a quality product that I expect to last for many seasons.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from one tough mask! I bought this mask for my horse who is turned out with a destructive buddy. He has ripped the cashel masks to shreds. So far, this mask has not been touched! It looks the same as the day I bought it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice mask, design change from last year We got this mask this year for our new pony as the one we had last year was pink and now we have a gelding. :) The old one was still in great shape though. No question that we'd buy the same one again. OK now the difference in design this year is BIG to me - the mask now slips on OVER the head (as in, you have to slide it up the horse's nose, due to the new band of elastic holding the sides together). The old design allowed you to "wrap it around" and that was nice for our pony who didn't like things going over her head. I do wish that the description was more clear about that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I purchased 2 of these fly masks-1For a fly-mask-Houdini; and 1 for a fly-mask-destroyer. So far, here's the deal:Definitely, these masks are studied than the many, many, (really many) masks I've bought. So far, neither horse have been able to pull the mask off, or shred it. I? Could not be happier at this point! Stay tuned-the month is young!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well with plenty of eye clearance I bought this mask in the middle of winter. Most suppliers were out of stock for the season, but I has happy that SmartPak wasn't! My Appy ulcerated his cornea and vet said to keep a mask on him to protect the eye and also give him some relief from the snow glare. I have other fly masks but none gave his eyes as much clearance as this one did. I do like the elastic in the Velcro closure that the mask has, but I had to figure out how much to tighten it as my boy is a Houdini and initially had to find the mask buried in snow! I also found his pasture mate was pulling it off him....jealous? I will be buying another for my other horse....once summer comes!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth buying again I bought my first Kensington fly mask three years ago. At the time I thought it was expensive for a flymask, but it was the only quick option. I had that first flymask for three years on horses that live outside! I have since bought three more for my other horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful I am very pleased with this fly mask, so much in fact that I have ordered more of the same for the rest of my herd. The thick fleece prevents rubbing and the material is tough tough tough!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ford F-350 of Fly Masks. This is my 3rd summer with this mask, and I can't say enough good things about it. It has survived my horse getting turned out 1) with a horse that is notorious for ripping the fly masks off of his paddock buddies, and 2) with a horse that my horse roughhoused with to the extent that his 600D rain sheet came out of it in tatters. In all of that, this fly mask has come off him exactly once. Every other horse in the barn has destroyed at least one fly mask in the time since I got this one, and while the fur is a little bit clumpy (like a well-loved teddy bear gets), otherwise, it looks just as good as it did the day I pulled it out of the package for the first time. I'm tempted to buy another one in a different color, just because I've had this one for so long I'm getting bored with looking at it. No sign, though.It's also SUPER-easy to clean. My boy is a real pig and cakes it up with mud at least twice a week. If I bring him in and it's already dried, I just give it a few brushes with my stiff grooming brush, and the dirt just falls right off immediately. If it's still wet, I turn the hose on it, sling it against the barn wall a few times to knock most of the water out of the fleece, and put it back on.I did buy a size too large because I wasn't aware that the products runs big, and it does, but all I have to do is fold the fuzzy strap over and it fits great. My horse is super sensitive to rubs, and hasn't had a single one from this mask. He knows what it's for, and puts his head down right away when he sees that I have it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive, sturdy mask I wanted a mask that stayed on my horse, protected him adequately, and was more attractive than a plain old grey one. This mask does all those things wonderfully. It runs a tad large, but the double velcro strap still keeps it on securely, even when the velcro doesn't match perfectly. The soft fleece at the nose is a nice touch, and of course Kensington products are of dependable quality and a nice array of colors. The SmartBlue looks sharp on my grey.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fancy, sturdy fly mask I bought this for my pony in the hopes that due to the SmartBlue color and monogramming it wouldn't migrate from horse to horse. She has a cob sized head with 'mare ears', the large is a little bit too big around so they seem to run true to bridle size with fairly normal ears. The mask is sturdy and the mesh on the ears and the fleece trim are both very soft so I'm hopeful it will hold up to 24/7 turnout without giving her rubs. Plus the SmartBlue is gorgeous and the monogramming is cute and subtle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase Fits well on my large draft. I do wish the material were softer but she enjoys it!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awkward Fit There is something strange with the fit or cut of this fly mask. The bottom fleece edge barely rests below my mare's eyes, and the section behind the ears and on the bridle path is about three inches wide. (see picture)The quality is good, and I like how the ears are lined with a soft nylon material. The fleece is super soft, but the fit isn't right and I can't get it to stay on my horse. I've owned several other brands and styles of flymasks and haven't had any issues.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Fly Mask I really like this fly mask, however the area where the eyes are not shaped the best, and when my horse rubs sometimes they will get inverted and press against his eye.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fly Mask! This is the fourth summer that I've been using this fly mask on my two draft crosses and they still look NEW! Great protection for the horses. In fact, my 'boys' know what the masks do for them as they lower their heads for me to put them on. My masks are a little large as I bought the XL size, but the horse size probably would've fit them better as they are draft crosses but each only about 15.3. The ears are a little too long and the velcro on the throat lach just needs to be rolled over to be snug against them - but even with my 'ordering' size mistake, the masks stay on them all night and have worked well for FOUR summers! Wonderful product - your horse will thank you!
