Why We Love This

The Rambo® Vari-Layer Wug Turnout gives you iconic Rambo style and durability with innovative Vari-Layer™ technology. What is Vari-Layer? It provides maximum warmth with minimum weight by strategically placing additional layers of thermobonded fiberfill where your horse needs it most and reducing bulk where it isn’t necessary. 

It also features a high-neck design that offers added protection as well as reducing pressure on the withers, making it a great choice for horses with high withers. This blanket boasts a classic cut and design that never go out of style and has reflective strips for added visibility. Additionally, it’s constructed from a tough 1000 denier ballistic nylon outer that’s made to last. It’s is not only breathable and waterproof, it also features Aquatrans® technology that draws moisture and sweat away from your horse’s coat to keep him warm, dry, and comfortable. The thermobonded fiberfill offers longer lasting heat retention to keep your horse toasty, too. Plus, the lining is moisture wicking, shine enhancing, and antibacterial so your horse looks and feels great. The V-front closure reduces pressure on the shoulders and, combined with the triple cross-belly surcingles, offers a secure fit. Your horse will also be able to move more freely with Horseware’s patented leg arches. Last but not least, a large tail flap adds extra protection with a wipe-clean tail cord that makes clean up a breeze. You and your horse will love the durability, protection, and comfort that this blanket offers. 

Available in Medium (250 g). 


Please note, we recommend placing embroidery on a surcingle. Embroidery on the body of the blanket may interfere with the blanket’s waterproofing.

Rambo® Vari-Layer Wug Turnout is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Blanket ever We have had two of the medium weight vari wigs for about six weeks. They do not even budge. I have one horse who is very difficult to keep a blanket on but no problem with this wug at first I didn’t like the idea of the under tail connector,But it is great and oddly enough has never been soiled. it’s very warm but there is never any sweaty spot under the blanket. It does fit different lay from other blankets. We had to return one for a different size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unbelievable horse turnout blanket I ordered two of these turnout blankets for my horses. These are the very best blankets I have ever had. They are warm and really waterproof. When I received them I immediately put them on the horses who live in an eight acre pasture with a nice run in shed. It rained for three days non stop in 34 degree weather and the horses wore the blankets the entire time. No rain seeped under the blankets and there was no sweat on the horses under the blankets. I have one horse that is very hard on his clothes. No problem with this blanket. I wish I had these blankets many years ago. Prior to having these blankets, the horses would not graze on rainy days, but would stay inside the shed. Now, if they are wearing the blankets and they graze as if it were summer. If I could give more than 5 stars I surely would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best blanket for 24/7 turnout I have tons of blankets and always go back to this one--you cannot beat the quality and it keeps my gelding toasty and dry. I really like the Vari-Layer technology as he never seems to get too hot or cold. Seriously the best blanket on the market!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super warm! I bought the Vari-layer Wug in a hurry because of a nasty winter blast. I was holding out for the heavy-weight SmartPak Rhino Wug, but it was out of stock at the time and I needed a heavy-weight ASAP. I like the vari-layer; my horse has stayed warm in 24/7 turnout with wind chills down to -25. The high neck keeps him dry and happy. It is bulky though and difficult to fold and store. Overall, I like the blanket but I'm not in love with it. It does have the Rambo quality and guarantee though and I don't worry about my horse in the harshest winter weather. I'm still curious if I would've preferred the SmartPak Rhino Heavy-weight at half the price - I have the medium weight and LOVE it - but I'm happy with the durability and the long life I know the Rambo will have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these blankets I have a TB with huge withers and big shoulders and Rambo Wugs fit him perfectly. He lives in a 12 acre pasture 24/7 and wears his Wug usually from October to April in the rain, snow and wind. I just got this one to replace the one I got 4 years ago because it was wearing out from all the hard use. Blanket arrived just ahead of a blizzard; Rudy was very happy to get his new blankie which kept him dry and warm through the storm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blanket for our crazy weather I'm glad that I bought this for my gelding before the snowstprm last week! He normally wears a size 78 but I read other reviews and ordered size 81. Fits him great. He has big shoulders and broad chest but has plenty of room to move. I like the fact that the high neck keeps him drier in the snow and rain since I try to turn horses out every day. Also the 3 surcingle and tail flap loop help keep the blanket in place when he is cavorting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm sure this product is wonderful but... My warmblood has broad shoulders and a muscular neck so that the neck opening was too small for her. When she put her head up the whole blanket was pulled up. I was disappointed to return the product for this reason because otherwise it seemed like a very nice blanket! I had more luck with the Weatherbeeta wug for her stocky build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this blanket! This blanket is a great weight and the vari-layer feature is my favorite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected! I was a little skeptical of the Vari-Layer hype. I love Rambo blankets, though, and when my mare began to get wither sore from her Original Heavy turnout, I began to look for other options. She needed something with more coverage and warmth, since she is clipped and lives outside in a cold and snowy climate. This was billed as being lighter and warmer than other blankets, and since Wugs fit her well, I decided to give it a shot (especially since I had free return shipping if it didn't work!) After a few weeks, both my mare and I are very happy with this blanket. She doesn't get grumpy when we put this one on like she did with the Original, and even in single-digit temperatures she is warm and dry. This blanket is definitely lighter than other heavy blankets with necks, which is nice when you're trying to throw it over a tall horse's back. She even wore it for a few days before her second body clip (i.e. she was hairy) and didn't get sweaty underneath it despite how warm it is. I will note that the drop seems a bit shorter on this one than it does on her Medium Wug of the same size, but not enough to make it fit poorly. It has all the quality I expect from Rambo, and looks to be something that will last as long as all my other Rambo blankets have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great blanket I love Rambos - I got a new horse, and my old horses wugs were looking a little shabby so I decided to try the VariLayers for both. Overall very happy with the fit and quality as always with my Rambos...however, these rugs are WAY warmer than a non varilayer wug. I had to buy a 100g liner to go under my sheets for those "in between" days, when my old Mediums would have been fine.
