    Rambo® Fly Buster Vamoose with No-Fly Zone™ is rated 4.5273 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs large, too hot for summer. For the two weeks I was able to use it it held up fine and seemed to do well repelling insects. However, it was way too hot to leave on my guy once it got above the mid 70s. This sheet also runs large. My horse is a true 82" and the sheet that fit was 78".

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with this product I bought this 2 weeks ago. The fit was perfect. As suggested, I subtracted 4" from what she measured . My horse, Holly looks very spiffy in her fly sheet ! It keeps the flies and mosquitoes off of her. I am very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This FlySheet! Although many said to order a size smaller, i went with my horses usual size and it fits perfectly. It is a tad big but any smaller would be to tight. I LOVE this sheet. The lining keeps it from rubbing and the coverage is awesome! My only complaint is the belly band is tight if i reach it to the velcro. My horse is really not heavy but is a 16h built quarter horse. Luckily the second piece of band holds the unsecured one in place. Happy i spent the extra on the sheet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good! I have only used this product for a few days. My horse measures an 80/81 (and wears that size in all sheets/blankets) but I found this product to run LARGE. The 81 was absolutely HUGE on him. I exchanged it for a 78 and it fits PERFECTLY. MY paint gelding has light skin so I bought it primarily for sun protection but have already noticed a difference in the number of bug bites he has received. I will follow-up with a rating on durability after the summer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fly sheet but it didn't fit This a great quality sheet and i really wish it had fit my horse. They do run big! My horse normally wears a 78 but the size 78 was way too big and baggy. The 75 was just a little too small.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it but size down I am loving this fly sheet/neck cover, my horse has sweet itch so he lives in this sheet now with the bug comeing full force! And I can definitely tell a difference in the amount of fly spray I have had to use this season (rather than last year when I only had a regular fly sheet without insect shield) and I know he appreciates it because when it is off for rideing he gets cranky kicking at the bugs, but when it is on he haven't even been swishing his tail pretty much at all. Oh and definitely size down if your horse has a narrower build.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage! My mare is very sensitive to flies and this covers her up nicely! Does it's job and still light and airy at the same time!! She will be nicely protected this year from all the biting bugs! :) Says to order a size down....DO NOT...order the normal size your horse wears.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2 of 2 haven't held up I bought 2 within the past two years. My horses "live" in them during our hot SE TX summers. After one year, the two front snaps on one are rusted shut (so now it's an "over-the-head" model, which I don't love considering how much fabric is involved). Within two years of use, the other had all three Velcro pieces on one side of neck attachment come unsewn. I wish stainless fittings were used. My horses aren't "destroyers".

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome fly sheet!! I bought this about a month ago and absolutely love it. Originally I bought the Mio fly sheet to save money. It was ruined after 1 week. Very disappointing. But the Rambo has been great and so far I'm very impressed. It does run big. I would order a size smaller.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As usual, Rambo delivers! After switching to Rambo turnout blankets, I decided to try this flysheet. Rambo has a great fit for big bodied horses without the bulk. I could immediately tell a difference with the fly shield and flies stayed away. My horse is very happy when he wears this sheet. Love this fly sheet and it has become an essential part of my horses wardrobe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indestructible Fly Sheet My horse destroys every blanket and fly sheet I have ever gotten him. I thought I would give this one a try. After him wearing it from May until the end of September, there are no rips or broken straps. I washed it and it came out great and is ready for next summer. I highly recommend it!!!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't spring for the fly repellent Bought the Rambo Fly Buster for my mare who is very sensitive to fly bites. I was hoping that having the permethrin fly repellent would keep the flies from biting the areas where the fly sheet didn't cover - sort of like a fly-free cloud around her. It does not work like this. The fly sheet is nice and fits well, but I do not recommend paying extra for the repellent. She is being attacked by flies in the area between the fly mask and the neck portion of the fly sheet, so the repellent does not keep them away.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The one that lasts I've gone through multiple flysheets every season and so far, this one is the most durable and always stays put! Better yet, the bug bites on my poor itchy dark bay have all but healed!
    Date published: 2013-07-01
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed with durability I bought this fly sheet as my horse was going to be temporarily pasture boarded while I was waiting for his stall to be finished at his new barn, and since he is lightly colored, I wanted something that was breathable but had high UV protection as well. As far as protection goes, I love it! It fits him well and within a few days the fly bites he had were healed. However, when I went out this evening, I noticed a large tear in the neck cover, and one of the velcro straps was torn off of the cover as well. Yes, he is out all the time at the moment, but I have had this sheet for less than 2 weeks, and this is a horse whose winter blankets are still in great shape after months of use. Overall, I was hoping it would have held up a little longer for the price. . .

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fewer bites My horse had been getting huge welts from black fly bites. The sheet doesn't cover the most sensitive area around her udder, but has reduced the number of bites overall. After a few weeks, it does have one small tear, but one that will be easy to sew up.
    Date published: 2013-06-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fly sheet! I had some reservations spending this much money on a fly sheet, but from the moment I put it on, my horse's attitude changed from grumpy to happy (the flies were eating him alive) and his tail finally got a break from constantly swishing! He is hard on his turnouts and so far this has been durable, just like all Horseware products! Cheers to keeping the flies at bay!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from another great Rambo product My horse is very sensitive to flies. Even with a fly sheet on it didn't offer him much relief. With this sheet on he isn't being bothered at all by flies and it hasn't made him feel hot while wearing it, even in the last heat wave.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer Must-have! The Rambo Fly buster sheet is in a class all it's own. It fits my 17 hand mare beautifully and doesn't slide around after she rolls. It is holding up wonderfully and really works at keeping the bugs away and my mare cool so she can enjoy her turnout! I ordered the same size I normally order for blankets and it fits her perfectly. Keep in mind fly sheets are typically a little "drapey." I highly recommend this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relief--for both of us! I can see his relief from mosquitos and flies, and that gives me some relief too! Great purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this product Absolutely love this product. It visibly keeps bugs away, my black horse stays cool and the fit is unparalleled. The only downside is Rambo products tend to be pricey.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only fly sheet that fits my otto...why are the shoulder gussets so far back on all the other ones. So far so good. Stays in place!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only one summer? My horse wore this sparingly (not every day and did not sleep in it) last summer. This summer I went to put it on him and one of the neck straps came off, which makes the neck cover fall down on his neck, and one of the front closure buckles also came off. The lining is also ripped in a few places. I expected to get at least two summers out of it for the price.Other than that, it's a fantastic looking fly sheet. I got it monogrammed. I like the weight of the mesh, although sometimes I worry that it is hotter than it needs to be. The tail flap and sides drape low enough to provide adequate coverage on my 16.2 horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Midge Allergy Defense We have gone through 2 years of injections for our horse who has had a terrible allergic response to "no see ums". The Rambo fly sheet has small enough netting that it will be a barrier to the midge bites that cause the allergic reaction. We live in Michigan and already have K wearing his fly sheet. He is rough on turn outs, but so far this sheet is holding up. We are hoping that this barrier device helps resolve our problem....I did tons of Internet research and this product seemed the very best solution to the problem....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Rambo blankets! I have not yet used this fly sheet but have used the regular Rambo fly sheet without the fly repellent and it has worn exceedingly well and is still in use. I bought the Fly Buster for one of my horses that is very sensitive to insect bites and I expect it will wear and perform just as well.
    Date published: 2013-03-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy horse! My gelding developed bad bug reactions. The rubbing and itching stopped almost instantly. He has access to pasture 24/7 with 2 other geldings. They run and play hard and this product seems to work great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gooood My Pregnant Mare had some nasty fly/gnat wounds on her belly, and this was perfect for that! It is a medium weight material for a fly sheet, but therefore more durable. It also stayed put very nicely even after she rolled.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rambo fly buster sheet I was told this ran really big so I ordered a smaller size. Now it is very tight. Not impressed. Go with the size you measure for. The sheet seems well made. The bugs don't bite through it. I have rub marks on the horse and only use it occasionally now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Sunblock I purchased this for my paint mare that sunburns on her withers, neck and face. The Rambo works well and stays in place even when she rolls. It has a UV protection of 95 but she still burns on the withers. It does keep the flies away but she still has to been in the barn during the high UV times of the day. I've had the Rambo for about a month and have no problems with its wear or quality!!I'd recommend it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rambo fly sheet I just received this sheet. It runs large so I had to send it back. Seems well made. Hope it lives up to hype.
