    Shires Fine Mesh Fly Mask w/ Ears is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 91.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice fly mask but... I really wanted to love this mask. I actually ordered three. I ordered one with the nose cover and two without. The mask is generous in fit and seems to be well made. My biggest beef with it though, is that it has NO forelock opening. I did not even notice this until I went to put it on. Now for my two boys, it's not that big of a deal because they don't have much of a forelock. My mare, however, has a very long and thick one, and it just poofs up the mask and won't let it sit right. I'm not sure why they omitted the hole, but it is a little bit aggravating. I will have to see over time how this holds up. I may have to delegate it to just my older gelding. He is not an excessive head rubber or roller. The mesh on the face is fine, but when my other gelding rolled, all kinds of dirt got into the mask and in his eyes. I don't think my normal go to masks do that.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I really wanted to like this... I bought this in anticipation for the upcoming fly season and put it on my horse for the first time last night. He is a bit of a mischief maker and can take his fly masks off and bury them occasionally. When I got to the barn the next afternoon, the fly mask was still on! I was super happy until I took him out of his stall and saw that the lower cheek area already had several holes in it. Super disappointed! After reading other reviews, I really had high hopes for this mask. I’m guessing the fine material just doesn’t hold up well, at least in my experience. Bummed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My FAVORITE fly mask By far my favorite fly mask. Love the fleece lining and how they fit. Run very true to size. I have for both my 8yr old gelding and 2yr old filly. They are very durable and very easy to clean. My gelding destroys everything and this is going on season #2 that is unheard of for him.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I liked the mask and it's features, but it was too small for our guy! If had it in size larger, I would have kept it. I would say it runs true to size, our paint horse just has a big head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit I really like the shires face mask. It fits well and the sheepskin fleece on the inside around the ears is a nice touch. Also the eye part is very fine so keeps gnats away as well.
    Date published: 2018-07-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fly mask This is a very secure mask that keeps the bugs out, but stays away from the eyes. It has plenty of eye room under the mask. My mare likes it. The only draw back is it has to be hand washed. I scrub mine with a brush with out a problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made with the Horse in Mind Just bought this a couple days ago and I already love this fly mask over all the others I've tried! I like that it has fleece lining where the brow band would be, and the overall thought put into it. (ie. wo Velcro straps for customization, elastic where the throat latch is, and the mesh seems to be more see through than others) I can't say much of the durability yet, but if it doesn't last, I'll update my review.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs large I ordered a full because of the measurements listed in the ad. I measured carefully and when the full came it it was still too large. I would have reordered and gotten the cobb size but it is sold off. I have a Rocky Mountain gelding that apparently has a long slender head. Great product, looks well made.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been buying the shires fly mask for years. They fit well and hold up well. Love these masks!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Fit! This mask fits Greats around the eyes and love the material.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits all of my horses! I love the elastic around the neck area--it is designed to take up the slack around the neck instead of leaving gaps that can get caught on so many things, but is not tight at all. The Velcro tabs are also long enough to fit all sized heads. I got the Full size for my Morgan (smaller head) and Appendix (larger head) and the XL for my 17H Quarter Horse--he has a lot of room, but the Full is just a little snug. I tried to order the Cobb size for my small (14.3H Quarter horse, but they were out. The Full is too big for her. Wish I could have ordered the blue, but the orange is still pretty. Great for hunting season!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what needed for my horse! Keeps flies off face and out of his ears

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like better than Cashel I like the 2 Velcro straps that let you have some flexibility in adjusting. Have used it about 2 weeks and is holding up very well. The fleece around the brow helps keep the mask off the face. Fits my horse better than Cashel as Cashel tends to rub her under the jaw.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and comfy for the old man I've only had this a short time, but I love the soft ears and the clear eye screen. It's less stiff and generally softer than any mask I've tried. So far, so good with durability. SmartPak only had construction orange available in his size, but I guess it'll be easier to find if he loses it in the field :)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not fit my horse This mask did not fit my Morgan well. My horse has large eyes and although this is a well-made mask, it almost immediately was touching his eyes. I can't recommend this for horses with larger eyes or the traditional Morgan face with wider set eyes. Outside of the eye rubbing issue, the sizing seemed pretty accurate. If it would have stayed out of his eyes, I think we would have kept this one. I can't review it's durability. My horse had it on for less than a minute. It does appear to be a well-made mask and the fleece along the inside is good quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective for gnats This is the ONLY fly mask I have ever purchased that fits my mare and keeps gnats OUT. I love it.
    Date published: 2018-05-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought this for the fine mesh so my horses eyes are visable. The mask fits great, and stays on.
    Date published: 2018-05-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this mask! My horses like this mask & so do I. The mesh is very fine and dark, which cuts the sun without reducing vision. The fleece along the inside makes it comfortable. One mask usually lasts all season.
    Date published: 2018-04-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only fly mask I buy This is the only fly mask that doesn't give my horses rubs on their chin. Holds up well compared to most masks- one of my horses is using his for the second year in a row (and in buggy SC it gets used and abused a lot!).
    Date published: 2018-04-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and stays off of the eyes This fly mask is the best that I have used. Designed to stay away from the eyes it offers less irritation than other masks. It fits well, easy on and off and is durable. I highly recommend this mask
    Date published: 2017-12-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mask! Very good quality Fits good. I get the cob size for my Quarter Horse mare and the horse size for my QH gelding who is 15.3
    Date published: 2017-11-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Quality Pros: Good quality; mesh easy to see through Cons: Fit not ideal for my horse - he has a finer jaw line. I could see this fitting a QH well. Browline is fleece lined which is not suited for our tropical climate.
    Date published: 2017-10-23
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well constructed I bought this mask recently after using a similar model that has tossles that keep bugs off the muzzle. Although this mask has no tossles, it is still a good quality mask that does not squish the horses eyes/lashes.
    Date published: 2017-10-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FLY MASK! LOVE LOVE LOVE the darts at the eyes so the mask does not end up in their eyes as many do over time. This is a perfect design. Although I have not had mine long many of the horses at the barn have it and all the owners love this one best of all. It's a YES for me!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fine mesh Made with very fine mesh which makes it easy to see thru. Fleece along the inside above the eyes keep mesh from touching the eyes

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable Nice fit and lightweight. The padding inside the mask make it comfortable for him to wear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice! I bought this a few weeks ago. My horse wears it everyday and it's staying on and the Velcro closure is the best feature. My horse has a narrow face.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shires Fly Masks are the Best! Love the Shires fly masks. They are softer than most, with finer mesh. Very durable and they fit great; have soft edges so they don't wear off the hair. They stay on even the most determined horse. Worth every dollar!
