    Mio Flysheet is rated 4.1024 out of 5 by 127.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap and lasts reasonably well This is my second of these fly sheets. They are cheap and last about 2-3 seasons, which I think is very reasonable. It saves my horse's coat and protects him from bugs, which he is very sensitive to. You'll notice it will get rips in it, especially the nylon liner in the shoulder, but nothing that affects its function or makes me feel like I got a bad product for the money.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from like it but... I really like this product. Really nice sheet and helps with bugs. But the velcro on the chest rubbed my mare and I'm not to happy about that. It's so bad I have to choose, do I put it on her when it rubs but helps bugs, or do I not when the bugs annoy her and give her hives bigger than quarters. Works for now but will get a new fly sheet next year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality I bought this about a month ago and I am very please with the quality! It also fits true to size

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its holding up! I use this blanket on my wide paint and OTTB. The fit is a bit snug in the front on my paint and fits perfect on my OTTB. They wear the same size. My horses are turned out in a field and they play alot. My horses try and pull each others blankets off daily. This blanket has held up well. They have some holes where my horses have chomped on them, but overall they have held up. It gets very hot here and up to 95 degress they seem to keep my horses cooler. Over that of course my horses are hot, but I hoses them down with blanket on and they seem to be happy. It would be nice to have adjustable chest strap or elastic in front surcingle. I have not had any rubbing issues where hair is removed from fit of blanket and it stays in place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice light sheet! Love this sheet. It is so light and cool. It runs true to size if you read the sizing instructions. They are different than measuring for other brands. Fits my medium build poa perfectly. Would not recommend for a really stocky horse. Also would not recommend for a horse at the bottom of the pecking order. It is super light weight and I think it would get ripped up easily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value!!! Love this fly sheet! Protects very well with these Florida bugs this summer with all the rain we have had!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING product I absolutely love this fly sheet. I first bought one for my OTTB who easily gets worked up and sweaty when bothered by flies. This sheet keeps him cool and keeps the flies off of him. I just recently bought my 14.2 stocky pony one of these and they're very true to size. My horses live in this sheet all summer long and it never turns or gets twisted. My TB's has lasted two seasons! Even if they get small snags or tears they don't get bigger. The only thing i don't like about it is the velcro on the neck rug gets caught super easily and pulls on the material. Overall this fly sheet is a top pick!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price! Great price for a fly sheet with a neck cover. The fabric is soft unlike some of the scratchy fly sheets out there!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from not for my playful horse I had a rambo protector for 2 1/2 years when my horse finally ripped the belly surcingles off this year. I wanted something that might be a little cooler than the poly mesh that the Rambo is made of so I first tried the KoolKoat. I really liked that one since it had a lightweight fabric over the topline so it kept my horse really clean. Unfortunately it rubbed his shoulders too much so I returned it. Two other girls (one with a playful pony) had this Mio for their boys so I decided to try it instead. It fit great and kept my horse comfortable, but only lasted about 2 weeks before he shredded the neckpiece. Ok, maybe it was my fault in a roundabout way since I think he was trying to scratch out his braids, but still. I just cut the neckpiece off, but I need a flysheet with a neckpiece so I will get another Rambo. I remembered that I had two Amigo flysheets in one summer before the I got my last Rambo and he killed those two also. I guess he's too destructive for the lighterweight fabrics. Oh well. It's held up great on my friend's horses (and even the pony!).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fantastic Fly Sheet for a Non-Destructive Horse Bought this fly sheet at the beginning of the summer and was immediately impressed at the coverage it offered my horse and the fact that it fit her very well and was not going to rub. After only 2 weeks of use, my playful/destructive horse ripped the entire right side apart, surcingles completely torn off. So while I was pleased with the product initially, I would not recommend it for a horse that is hard on their blankets. For a horse that respects its clothing, this sheet provides excellent coverage and protection from bugs and sun rays. I especially appreciate the extra-long tail flap. Just wish I could have gotten more use out of it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits good on body but neck piece is very roomy. I bought the smallest size (69") for my 14.1 hh Welsh/Morgan cross and it fits in the body perfect, but the neck piece is very roomy on him. He has a thick neck, so this was surprising...but it's better than it being too small! I like the reflective material and overall it seems like a well-made sheet that should last a while (provided that his pasture mate doesn't mess with it too much.) Seems like a great price for this quality product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The neck piece is a little large but my 4yo quarter horse loves his fly sheet!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fly sheet for the price. My Arab mare is very sensitive to bites of any kind so I wanted her protected from pollto tail! The sheet seems very nice but looks too big for her even though she measurestrue to a 69" size. Will send back for a smaller size but overall I think it will do well. Itmay not hold up to a horse that is hard on blankets though because of the material. Ihaven't tested it out yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase!! This flysheet is the perfect choice for my horse. Since he lives in Texas, it's lightweight fabric was a must. It covers all of his neck (reaching all the way to his ears) and the rest of the sheet fits great. He is on all day turn out, so the UV protection is another big plus. I would definitely recommend this flysheet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mio Flysheet This is the second Mio Flysheet that we have purchased - that way there is always a clean one to change into. I love how he hasn't bleached out and the fly bites are diminished

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and cool This sheet fits my QH gelding quit well and he's a bit stout. No rubbing and this sheet is way less than half the weight of the textilene sheets. He is staying way cooler in the humid mid nineties southern heat as well. It does tear more easily but I use Sail Repair Tape from Duluth Trading or Duct Tape. I can get a good year out of the sheet with a horse that's rough on sheets.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay This fly sheet seemed good at first, the shoulder lining was soft and the outside seemed durable and well made. But the fit was too narrow in the shoulders, and after 10 days use the nylon shoulder lining separated from the sheet, the surcingle buckle began ripping away from the sheet and other small tears started to appear in the fabric all over. My horse is pastured alone and is pretty mellow with his blankets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mio Flysheet Worth every penny I paid for it. Fits the boy as if it was custom made cut allows the air to flow through. I wish I had bought more of them for the others but will be buying more Mio blankets, great product. Does run a little large but not a lot.If you want pictures I would be happy to send them and this horse is picture perfect. Just give me a day to take them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horse wears it proudly! I bought this for my recently adopted off-the-track Standardbred. At 14.2, I feared he'd be a hard fit. Size 69 is perfect for the length, but when I tried other brands from another catalog, they draped well below his knees and I couldn't cinch them up enough. It's almost like a tailor snuck into my barn and custom made this sheet for him! It looks smart, and my horse acts like he's hot stuff with it on. It cleans easily with a hose down of EZ All. It dries easily. There are some snags, but they're very small. I think it's helped keep this bay guy from fading too badly. It keeps him clean, cool and comfy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and Well Fitting This fly sheet is soft and light. It's not stiff and heavy like some other brands, and I think that my horse really appreciates it!There is a nylon lining on the shoulders and at the top of the mane to reduce hair loss.This is the only head and neck (one-piece) fly sheet that fits my Arabian. I had a Weatherbeeta that rubbed his shoulders terribly. He's a bigger bodied guy with decent shoulders.I usually buy a new one each year, but the affordable price makes that ok in my (pocket) book.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great fly sheet I have owned the Amigo Mio fly sheet since 2011. It fits my 16.3 hand OTTB really well and he wears a size 81. It fits really well and has held up great. I finally had to buy a new one today because my horse tore a big hole in the shoulder of the fly sheet. But other than that the quality is great.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad purchase for me. perks: the material is soft, the hardware is terrific! the velcro is great. it fits my 16.3 tb cross very well. it breathes in 90 degree plus heat.downfall: my horse destroyed the hood part in under 2 days. which is a bummer because my horse is sensitive to fly bites and has broken out in hives.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this primarily to keep my black horse from bleaching out and because of the high UV protection. It doesn't fit that well - way too baggy in the neck for my 3 year old WB that is still a bit pencil-necked. The tail strap quickly became disgusting with manure, and I'm disappointed that after two weeks of use it has many holes and tears, including around the straps, and it looks like it won't last much longer. I know my young horse is hard on it in turnout but still hoped for a bit more durability. My horse was also sweating under it on a 72 degree day, so it's warmer than it looks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Wonders I really like this product and will defiantly buy it again. It does snag a little but as long as you a gentle with it there are no problems. Helps my black horse in the heat of the Arizona summer stay cooler and keep those flies off of him. Helps him not bleach out to. He loves it and he hates blankets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good I bought this for my Quarter Horse who normally wears a 75 in Amigo and Amigo Mio. The drop on this sheet is perfect for him. The two belly surcingles are as tight as I can get them, and they are a bit saggy, but they do not pose a safety hazard and do not cause the sheet to become extremely displaced. I would have downsized him to 72, but it is nearly snug across the withers and through the shoulders. The material is soft but feels more durable then I had expected after reading some of the reviews. His turnout area does not have many things that can snag; so, I think it will hold up well. My Thoroughbred has the Rambo Protector, but I think I will order one of these for him as a back-up. For the money, I think this Amigo fly sheet is worth a try.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neck runs large I bought this for my 15.3 hand dark bay Connemara/TB mare. I was really excited that she would have a fly sheet this year so she wouldn't get tick bites and sun bleached. The blanket part fit her perfectly, but she was swimming in the neck. I also wish this had a belly guard.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT Fly Sheet My husband and I are stationed in Eastern Carolina where there is all sorts of creepy crawly bugs, and fly central! Not to mention blistering hot! I needed a full body fly sheet for my horse, who before was living in CT where the bugs aren't nearly as bad.Let me tell you this sheet is AWESOME! It held up perfectly all summer. I only had one tiny rip towards the end of it (my horse goes through fly sheets like its nobody's business). He is a very very dark bay and this sheet also kept him from becoming sun bleached! I also really liked that it was a soft material. Not like most fly sheets that are heavy and very stiff. The only thing I didn't like is that it gets stained and gross really easily. I had to throw it away at the end of the summer because it was sooo nasty. But I will definitely be purchasing another one! :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, but worth it I have a dark bay TB gelding, and previously bought quite a few fly sheets to keep him from bleaching out. Nothing would keep him from bleaching out, but I bought this, and I must say for a fly sheet, I think it is a little overpriced, but it worked great and was well worth it! It has held up well with no tears or rips and keeps him his nice dark color. It also fits well and seems quite comfortable.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed There are a few things I liked about this sheet... it's lightweight and really easy to wash. I could rinse it off, hang it up for 5 minutes, and put it back on my mare. It dries that quick! I loved the attached neck cover and the contoured fit. I was disappointed with the durability, however. My mare is super easy on clothes but the belly strap ripped off by the end of the summer. It also snags very easily and there were quite a few large snags, so once fly season was over, I pitched it. I can usually get about 3 seasons out of a fly sheet, but not this one.
