    Rambo® Original Neck Cover is rated 4.7083 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I live in Texas. Is this really a necessary item? Probably not but my horse lives outside and when it's cold and wet/sleeting, I know I feel a lot better when he has the neck cover on. Stays up perfectly and lots of overlap over his blanket. I have the one with no fill and it provides more than enough protection for Texas' generally mild winters. Absolutely no problems noted at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really adds warmth! My horse is always cold. Adding this hood has made a huge difference in his comfort level. I'm not sure how I got along without it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Order a size up My horse fits perfectly into a size 75 blanket but does have a rather short neck. After reading some reviews and some people saying it tends to run on the bigger side, I bought a medium thinking it would be a better suit (even though the recommended size according to his blanket would be a large). I was wrong and the medium was too small. We then tried on one of his buddies larger hoods and it fits perfectly! It even covers his neck a little more when he's grazing so snow doesn't run into his blanket and down his neck which is a plus!! I recommend sizing up when buying! Will buy again when needed!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great qualify and fit. My only problem was that my Rambo medium weight had no velcro attachments or d rings. Took it to the blanket lady and she sewed some on. All is well and I'm a happy girl and my horse is putting up with Iowa winter until we head for Aiken December 13th.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm hood I bought the same hood last year but it's gone missing so I ordered another. It keeps my horse's neck warm all winter.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well made, but . . . The neck cover is not so much a problem as to how it is attached. Six large 'D' rings on the inside of the blanket/sheet, three on either side of the wither area, are the attachment points. They're also pressure points that can cause rubbing sores. Not a good design.Neck covers on other Rambo sheets and blankets are attached by means of velcro sandwiches sewn on the outside of the blanket on either side of the withers. This design (more expensive to manufacture), causes no soring pressure.I'm very disappointed Horseware of Ireland would cheapen one of their foundation products with such a poorly thought out attachment for the neck cover.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, great addition to my Rambo Original I bought this about a month ago, right before the polar vortex was about to hit. Very glad I did! This made a great addition to my Rambo Original Heavyweight blanket. I original ordered a large because that was recommended for my size 78 blanket. I have a 16 hand Thoroughbred who fits very well in a 78, but the large was way too big for him. I sent it back (thank you SmartPak for free return shipping!) and got a medium instead, which fit like a glove. I can't directly comment on the durability of the neck cover, but if it's anything like the blanket, I'll have it for may years to come!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality as usual! I bought the large to attach to my 78 sheet that my TB wears and it fits well. The quality, as usual with Rambo products, is fantastic! He's been using it for a little over 3mos and it still looks brand new. I love the way it attaches to the blanket (4 velcro tabs) and have found it more reliable in not shifting/keeping water out that other brands I've tried, even with gusty winds! Only wish they weren't so expensive!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality! Bought this to go with my matching Rambo with leg arches sheet, it is so easy to hook onto the blanket and covered the edges well so no water can leak through! I got the 150g due to our cold temps here and it does the job great, keeping my clipped mare warm! True to size, I got a Large and it fits my mares who vary from 78-81 blanket sizes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I bought this a few weeks ago and it was put to the test with over an inch of rain recently. It kept my guy happy and dry even with the gusty winds we had! It attaches with 4 velcro tabs and is very secure, staying in place very well even with wind. I ordered the large for my 16.2 TB that wears a 78 and it fits well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typical Excellent Workmanship My first try with a hood. Wasn't too sure of sizing. My guy is a TB in an 81 Rambo except the sheet he takes in a 78. I ordered the large with fill and it fits great! It was nice to know that I could have returned/exchanged it for no additional shipping if need be. This hood attaches to rectangular fasteners on the blanket and velcros back on itself. That means that you must use it with one of the newer models and be aware that some of the older blankets have a velcro on velcro set up that won't work with this. With some of my older blankets I will need to layer with a new style (in my case, a lite or medium) if I need the warmth. Not a big problem. I anticipate loving this item as much as all of the Rambo products that I own.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable Rambo We've only used this Rambo neck to attach to the matching sheet for about a month, but it is doing its job-- keeping our roan pony dry and happy during the cool spring rains. We expect it to last like our other Rambo products, and we trust Rambo to stand behind it, so we can't go wrong. It easily and securely attaches to the sheet with 4 velcro loops and then buckles at the neck. The only reason I gave it a 4-star on value is that I think it's expensive, especially after spending all that money on the sheet. However, I know I can't go wrong with Rambo durability, so I'm willing to do it. I wish Rambo would do a promo on necks when you buy the sheet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition! I am so glad that I was able to purchase the Neck Cover for my horse. He is clipped and he is not growing out nearly as much as before. The cover seems to run a bit large. My horse is a 16"3 warmblood and the large was big enough. I paired it with his size 71 blanket and it works perfectly.
    Date published: 2013-02-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product I got the 150g fill for my body clipped horse and it keeps him nice and toasty in 30F weather. He's a 17hh 1600lb Hanoverian and the Xlarge fits well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best blanket ever. As always, you get what you pay for!! Rambo makes the best blankets period. I bought the Rambo Original Sheet with leg arches for my (extremely sensitive) 15.3 dutch warmblood and it fits like a glove, but doesn't rub him, because of the nice lining. So naturally I had to buy the matching neck cover! He's wearing it right now, looking ever so chic and staying warm and dry out in the yucky weather!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I absolutely love this new neck cover. It is not very clear on how it works, but it does attach to the new (2010) Rambos, but not the old ones. I did purchase a whole set of the new Rambo blankets as well (lite, med, heavy). So it can be quite pricey, but overall worth it. I bought a set of Rambos for my mare 5 years ago & they still look brand new, no rips or tears etc. And they wash great. I really wanted neck covers & when the Duo came out I almost bought one. But I waited due to being picky about colors, everything I have is green & grey. I am glad I waited & that the new blankets & neck covers came out. Now she has very nice backup blankets, although she will probably never need them. Also the new optimo liners fit great under the new blankets and will attach to them also. So overall great blankets, neck covers & liners!! Once you attach a neck cover & a liner, the new "original" is by far the best Rambo on the market!! Fantastic purchase!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rambo Neck Cover Nice product except it has no way to attach to the Rambo blanket I previously purchased. As soon as my horse rolled with it on, it got wrapped all around him and I had to remove it. I will need to figure out a way to attach straps to hold it in place. However, the Amigo neck cover I purchased was perfect as it has straps on the neck cover and the blanket for proper attachment.
