    Rambo Protector is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 145.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, great fit! I loved the first one so much, purchased another for a new horse. Size fairly accurate, fit and buckeling system allows for horses movement. 81 for our 16.3 hh Oldenburg, 78 for a 16.0 hh Paint. The textiline fabric is sturdy and holds up to rolling and playing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I was hoping for I never write reviews but I found this blanket so great I just wanted to sing it's praises. It's cool, sturdy and doesn't rub. My horse seems way calmer now that he doesn't have to spend so much time fighting the flies. He's black, so if it's hot, I think the light fabric reflects the heat better than his own coloring. He's not more sweaty on a hot day when I bring him in than if he was nekkid. Totally worth the $$!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sheet Hands Down! I have a dark tobiano warmblood who is really rough on his sheets/ blankets/ etc. This is the ONLY sheet that has lasted years and years without a tear and keeps his dark bay portion without fading. Great fly protection, great UV protection, and very durable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it! I bought the Rambo Protector after months of trying to decide which fly sheet to invest in. My horse HATES bugs of all kind and has really sensitive skin. This sheet is great and offers a nice reprise from the flies, mosquitoes, gnats and all other annoyances he throws fits about. He's outside 24/7 in a big group pasture. The Rambo Protector stays in place even after rolling, keeps him cool, yet also offers some light protection from the rain (he still gets wet but he doesn't get chilled). He stays fairly clean too! It's also incredibly durable with self-healing material. I did size down - all his other Horseware blankets are 81 but the 78 Protector fits perfectly. He does have some minor rubbing on his hips from this sheet but he's an incredibly angular horse. Bag Balm or Vaseline seems to help provide a barrier and it's a very small rub. For a durable fly sheet offering so much protection yet will last for years to come, it's a trade-off I'm willing to work with.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too expensive My horse normally wears a size 78 but had to return for a 75. Although it fits well now and I do like the features and coverage I don't think I will spend this much again for a fly sheet.. already has a tear..
    Date published: 2017-07-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from seems good quality I still have to try this on my horse but she has 72 in other blanket. The flies are not bad this summer so far so spray and fly mask may be enough. I think I will keep it though in case they are worse next summer or later on this summer. Seems very high quality as other products are.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great FlySheet I love this flysheet. What I don't like is that it is about 2 sizes too big. And because you are having to downsize so much, you lose the coverage in the belly area which is why I got this flysheet to begin with. That is the only issue I have with the flysheet.
    Date published: 2017-06-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best on the market This is the only fly sheet I've used that didn't rub at the wither or the shoulder. The weight of the mesh is perfect and helps to keep my horse cool. I've tried A LOT of other brands and will now only buy Rambo; the others were a waste of money. I bought a 75 for my quarter horse who usually wears a 78 and it fit perfectly.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great! But not sure how long it will last I bought this about a month ago. It has held up pretty well but it has these little brown strings in the mesh and the brown strings have ripped in some spots but not the white strings. Overall it has been good, but I'm not sure it is that much better than slightly cheaper options.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving what I see! Okay, so, first thing is first - I bought this on sale because I had been eyeballing them for quite some time and couldn't resist any horse is in a different state at the moment, so I really can't comment on any more than I can see/feel myself right now. Because of all the yo-yo'ing reviews in regards to sizing, I just wanted to add a quick review to help folks who may be on the fence about what size to order... I have a 17hh, 1200lb TB. He wears an 82 in Schneider's turnouts, 81 in Weatherbeeta Original Oricans, and 78 in Rambos. Based on other reviews, I went down to a 75 Protector. Like I said, I'm not able to try it on my boy just yet, but I also have a brand new Rambo Wug at my house as well and when the Protector is laid on top of the Wug the length/size seems to be spot on. So, I would have to agree that you should probably size DOWN from whatever your horse's USUAL RAMBO size is. The material is all they advertise it as: soft, light weight...but seems very durable at the same time. Should keep just about any kind of bug out! And I also feel like my horse isn't going to roast in it! Love the front closures, AND, the neck attachment rings are on the outside of the sheet which made me super happy (on an old Rhino, the neck cover attachment hooks were on the inside of the turnout sheet - which seemed to me like they would cause pressure points). Overall I am very happy with this purchase. Hope it fits my boy as well as I expect it to, and outlasts all the others! It may seem like a pricey sheet, but when you compare the features, the fact that it has a neck cover, and simply that it's a Rambo - you're getting quite a deal!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fly sheet I just bought a second round of these sheets after having my first set for 5 or 6 years. They fit great and are very durable. I will always pay the extra money to have a good quality sheet like this one.
    Date published: 2016-08-19
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I purchased this a few weeks ago since they seem to hold up very well over time, but now the flysheet is creating really bad rub marks on my mare's shoulders & chest. I love it otherwise, but I'm considering purchasing a different brand because her rub marks are very sensitive from repeated rubbing. This product was not worth the almost $200 I paid for it.
    Date published: 2016-08-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from durability plus! If you are looking for a durable flysheet this is it. After a month of being worn by my gelding outside in his herd, not one rip, tear, or snag is present. My previous flysheet lasted little more than a week. Small tears that I thought I could patch, then huge rips that relegated it to the salvage pile. This is worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luv, Luv, Rambo I have used Rambo blankets, sheets, etc for 20 years now and still luv this product! I was hesitant ordering down 3 sizes from his actual measurement as recommended, the fit is perfect! Not only does this protect against flies, but my guy is a dark bay and this keeps him from bleaching out to that ugly orange color in the summer. We live in So Calif where triple digit temperatures can be normal for us in the summer, he still stays cool wearing this all day. My horse is easy on blankets, he doesn't rub them, tear them, etc, however he does lay down every night and the protector as well as all my Rambo products can withstand him wearing it overnight. I have had some blankets and sheets for 8+ years and will probably have this sheet that long as well. Not only did I get this product at the cheapest price, SmartPak gave me free 2 day shipping. Why would you shop anywhere else when the product & pricing cant be beat and I have it in 2 days. Thank You SmartPak, from your new favorite Customers, Smoke & Judy

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fly sheet I have 6 Rambo fly sheets. I have had most of them for over 5 years. I have never had one get destroyed! My horses are turned out all day. I take the sheets off at night and put them on in the am. I just walk out in the field with my sheets, and throw them on each horse. They are all at Liberty, no halters. They want them on! I put their names on each sheets with a Sharpie marker. I get them size larger, just in case my horse grows. ;) Never had any horse get any rubs!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy duty and good fit. This is a great product. Heavy duty and good fit. Does not wear out with active horse.
    Date published: 2016-07-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fit I wish more sheets/blankets had the front V closures like this. The fit difference for my horse is unparalleled. No shoulder rubs, no slipping back behind the withers (and he's a high-withered TB). This is also a really nice material - pretty soft and pliable for a fly sheet. I would highly recommend this sheet. Only caveat is it does run large. Thankfully I read the other reviews. My horse is a consistent 78" , but I ordered the 75" in this sheet and it fits him perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased I bought this sheet at the beginning of June for my Quarter Horse gelding, King. Although he is a QH, he is lean built and very tall. Most sheets don't fit him well and are too "boxy". After shredding his last sheet, I decided he deserved his first Rambo. This one fits him perfectly and I am very pleased with the quality of the sheet. I was initially worried because it does not have a full belly band and I cannot use fly spray as he is allergic. However, so far his tummy is perfectly fine and our flies are thick. I did order a 78 and he is normally an 80-81. The 78 is a good fit. I really like that the neck cover stays forward and does not slide back. Additionally, he does not get hot anywhere under this sheet and we have been in the 90s here. He rolled in the mud one day after a rain storm. My other sheets were heavy because they soaked up the water and the mud stained them. King's sheet did not absorb the water and I hung it on the fence, bushed it off, and it looked brand new!! Love this. Will purchase more in the future!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rambo Protector Fly Sheet The cut & style of the coat are 5*s. It's a great concept especially with the Rambo unique front closure. This is the highest priced fly sheet out there excluding the ones with fly repellent. I think the sheet is overpriced for the weight, texture, & durability. I have a P.R.E. mare and will be surprised if it lasts the whole season. I can see pulls in the fabric already. She rolls every day in her sheet so we will see how it holds up. If it makes it through a couple of seasons, which I expect it to do due to the price, I will give 5 stars.
    Date published: 2016-06-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality material and hardware-perfect fit! I bought a size 75 for my 17.1 h TB. She measured 76" but the knowledgeable customer rep recommended a sz. 75 and it is perfect. I am very impressed with the "satiny" shoulder liner and easy fittings. This sheet looks like it will last a long time. She seems very comfortable and we have been getting record breaking temps in AZ. The horse she is turned out with usually bites her when they are eating hay together but with this sheet on he has given that up- an unexpected bonus!
    Date published: 2016-06-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the extra I bought this flysheet for my Gelding after he destroyed my Amigo within a week on wearing it for the first time. I was a little skeptical of spending the extra money on something I figured wouldn't last, but I'm so glad I did! It lasted the rest of the fly season and little looks great! The sizes seem to run the same as in other rambo products: My horse is a 75 in most other brands, but a 78 in all his Rambos, including this. (16.2hh TB/HOLST)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit for My Senior Horse My horse is now 27 and retired other than leisurely trail rides. I noticed that his fly sheet had become too big in the chest/shoulders and was constantly sliding around. The poor fit seemed to be creating pressure points on his neck/withers. I decided to invest in the Rambo protector, knowing that Rambo makes a very sturdy blanket. The fly sheet fits great all over and my horse loves it! The sides of the fly sheet are longer and cover his belly- protection without the onerous belly band that my horse despises. Best of all, since ditching the old fly sheet he feels better and more supple on our rides. Don't underestimate the importance of blanket fit. If you want a sturdy/breathable/UV rated fly sheet then try the Rambo protector.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Only Flysheet that would Stay ON This was the 2nd flysheet I tried and the only one that worked I bought a Buca Buzz Off and that lasted a week before she some how tore it up. I got fed up and bought this one knowing if it didn't I could send it back. It works wonderful, my mare is very hard on flysheets and blankets. I was sooo happy it lasted a week, a month and now 2 months with no tears, rips or anything and it has stayed put and lord knows she LOVES to roll and it has held up.
    Date published: 2015-08-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great When this fly sheet arrived I thought it would be hot -heavy duty but hot. That is not the case. Fabric softens a bit with only a few wears and horses don't sweat underneath. I bought one to check sizing ( I went up a size from regular blanket) and liked it so much that I bought 2 more for the other horses

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love the durability of Rambo products. This fly sheet replaces a used, different brand, one that we purchased. The used one lasted only a few weeks before failing. Thus, the new Rambo fly sheet. I recommend you order one if not two sizes smaller than you would normally purchase. This Rambo product runs large.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Blessing for a Sissy Horse from the South My horse who originates from the south is a sissy when it comes to flies. I was looking for a great sheet that would be protect her coat from the sun and her body from the flies. So far this has done just the thing. She no longer wants to come in at 3 PM each day because the flies are too much. She's a happy camper now. It's held up well and has been washed. Nothing abnormal seems to have happened to it yet outside of normal rolling and potty stains. The one thing that does kind of stink is that the flap over her tail seems long and because I keep her tail protected in a tail bag when she is in heat it does get messy and requires washing. I did follow as all others recommended to order a size smaller than her normal sheet size. She is an 80 so I got a 78 and fits great. No rubbing has occurred on her mane or shoulders. The satin protector works well. It did tear but I don't know how it happened. It might have in the wash some way some how. But still its a great sheet and I have never purchased this brand before. Also, just as if you were to have a normal sheet on while outside to protect from sun she does get warm underneath it and sweat. I believe it is more breathable than a normal sheet but that is what happens when they are outside in the sun when it's hot out. SmartPak probably has the best price on this sheet and if I remember I got free shipping too PLUS my 5% off for being an AQHA member.
