    SmartPak Deluxe Fly Sheet w/ No-Fly Zone™ is rated 3.8438 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps the gnats off but... I have mixed emotions about this fly-sheet. Most importantly, it works! And boy, does it work well! I bought it with the hopes that it would keep the gnats (Culicoides) off of my mare, even though it isn't advertised to do so. But she has had no welts on her body since starting to use this fly sheet 6 weeks ago!However, I have three issues with this fly-sheet. One is durability. Within the first 2 weeks, she ripped a giant hole in the side and ripped off one of the buckles. However, SmartPak was awesome in dealing with me on this problem. Since the replacement, it has held up better, but still has a small rip in it that was made within the first couple of weeks.Another issue seems to be a problem across the board with fly sheets. I wish the neckpiece was longer and fit a little tighter. I find that when my mare puts her head down to graze, it leaves about 12" of her neck uncovered. This part of her body is still covered with welts since she is not receiving protection from the fly-sheet. If the neck were a bit longer it would be perfect. (My mare is a fairly average horse at 16.2hh)The last issue is that I wish it had a belly cover like some sheets do.Overall, I am thrilled with this flysheet. It has served its purpose fantastically. It has outperformed a more expensive micro mesh fly sheet. My mare doesn't come in sweaty after being out all night in the Florida heat, unlike the micro mesh sheeted horse. This fly sheet has a few issues, but nothing is perfect.Would definitely recommend and would definitely buy again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from smart Park deluse fly w/fly control I have been using this for about 6 weeks. It is large, but does protect horse very well. I wish it had a shoulder gusset. I am getting some rubbing. Some tears from others bitting at horses hip. I am now fixing them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good coverage and durability My APHA gelding is photosensitive, so I chose this fly sheet based on reviews and its 95% UV rating (well, and the fact that it's significantly cheaper than the Rambo). I am glad I took a chance on it. I still bring my horse in on sunny days but I don't feel like I need to rush out before sunrise to get him, and it doesn't seem to affect him if he's out longer than anticipated in sun. The neck cover stays up pretty well. I wish it had a way to attach to a crownpiece or fly mask to help keep him fully covered, but there are really only a few inches uncovered, and his mane helps there too. He got 2 small tears in the neck cover early on from a grumpy pasture-mate's teeth, but I sewed those shut and they've been fine. There are teeth marks on other parts of it now but no more tears, which is much better durability than I expected from any fly sheet. Of course I hope to get multiple seasons out of it, but time will tell.As a side benefit, he seemed so much cooler and more relaxed than the others that I have purchased more fly sheets, and my horses are definitely spending more time out grazing instead of hiding in their sheds from sun and bugs.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but not durable I bought this blanket for my 3 year old warmblood cross filly. While she is playful she does not go out with other playful horses and she does not destroy her blankets. After using this everyday for 2 weeks I came out and it had been shredded into 6 pieces. I am very disappointed by the durability of this blanket. The fit was great! It helped to keep my horse from getting sunburned and kept the flies off. Unfortunately it just isn't tough. Thanks the great customer care I was able to exchange it for a Rambo.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Durable for such a Light Fly Sheet! I got this for my two geldings a few weeks ago, and I am so glad that I did! When I first pulled the sheets out, I was a little disappointed at how thin they seemed. With my destructive Morgan gelding, I thought that it wouldn't last through the day.... But three weeks of continuous use later, and it doesn't even have a rip! It is surprisingly durable for such a lightweight sheet. And I am so glad that it's lightweight, because with this sudden heat wave we've had in MD, my boys are suffering from both the heat and the bugs!! But even in the 90 degree weather I was able to leave the sheets on, and my one gelding who was smart and slept under his fan all day was fine, but my other guy who stayed out in the sunshine stubbornly trying to eat grass only got a little sweaty. So not too bad!The only thing I didn't like about this sheet was that you aren't able to choose the size of the neck cover. My tb/belgian cross gelding needed an 82" sheet because he's so long, but he drowns in the neck cover and it struggles to stay up. But he is a difficult horse to fit for anything anyways.... But other than that, this is an excellent sheet!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It hasn't ripped yet and he hasn't gotten it off! I have the Fly Sheet Destructor of all time. In desperation I ordered this sheet mainly because of the No Fly Zone coating. He's super sensitive to flies and they are extremely pesky this year due to the wet ground conditions. I thought he needed all the help he could get. I orderd the 84 for a 17 hand TB gelding. It's a tad large on him but the good thing is it hangs correctly, even a bit big. It drapes well and I think that adds to the fly-wisking ability. The neck cover is a bit large but again, it doesn't twist or sag, it hangs correctly. I put this on Destructor and he didn't have it on 20 seconds before going right out and rolling - hard - and sure enough, the Deluxe Sheet stayed right in place when he got up. The lack of a belly piece, and the slightly large fitting is the only reason I've given it four stars instead of five and truly would have given it 4.5 if you could. I think this sheet will hold up, it's made well, I like the color and the weight of the fabric, the flys-away feature with the repellent coating WORKS, and so far Destructor has not been able to even snag it. Thumbs up.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Without leg straps, lasted only one day. I bought this fly sheet because it is a SmartPak product and most of the time, anything with the SmartPak name is good. I was leary, though, about the fact that it did not have leg straps (nor any place to where to hook leg straps). As I assummed, the horse destroyed rear left side of the blanket within one day, probably when she laydown and then stepped on the blanket when she got up. It's just not good enough to have an "under the tail" piece of rope to hold an outdoor blanket on a horse that's, well, OUTDOORS and where it will laydown and roll. I should have known better.The fly sheet, itself, is very well made, and is soft and fit my horse very nicely. If only used in a controlled area, and not where a horse will would be very nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Fly Sheet! I bought this fly sheet because my mare has horrible reactions to flys - she gets horrible hives all over! First off, this fly sheet is of great quality. I love the neck piece, the fact that the sheet goes down pretty far on her legs, and as an added bonus, I absolutely love the tail flap! My mare hasn't had any hives since using this fly sheet, and she hasn't bleached out one bit. The only thing that I do not like about the sheet, is that is stains pretty easily. Other than that, it is absolutely wonderful! I also had the surcingle monogrammed since I am at a boarding facility - the monogram turned out beautifully!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ripped in 2 days! I put this on my horse just a few days ago and he has already ripped this fly sheet in half and he isn't that tough on his blankets. I gave this two stars only because before it ripped it was keeping the flies away and it even kept ticks away. In my opinion spend the money on a better quality blanket.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not durable Sheet was destroyed by horse in less than 24 hours if first time it was on. My horse is not a blanket shredder.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Colorful and Wonderful! I purchased this fly sheet back in late June when i purchased my yearling. It is hard to fit him because he is inbetween most sizes as he grows. A women at the Smartpak store recommended this fly sheet over all the others. It was affordable and durable for an enthusiastic yearling. I'v now had it for 4 months and it still is in perfect condition. It fits my boy just right and he is comfortable in it. Not to mention it keeps the flies away and the color looks wonderful on him :) ! I would recommend this product to anyone who has a horse who is tough on their sheets/ blankets ect !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Updated Review after 1 summer I have had this flysheet for 3 months now and my horse has used it almost every single day since I received it. It has one small hole other than that it's in perfect condition. I have been so happy with the product. My horse literally sighs in relief when I put it on if I made him go without it for a day (to hose it off/wash it (it cleans up great!)) He can't get to me fast enough from the pasture if he sees me carrying it out to him. We had several days of 95+ degree heat and he was never sweaty underneath, I think he actually stayed cooler than any horse on the property. The fact that he loves it means I love it. This sheet will last me at least one more season since its still in great condition and fly season is almost over now. I just purchased a stocky paint mare and I plan on buying her the Rockin SP verison of this fly sheet. I think I have a few people at my barn/ and other friends talked into one of these sheets for next season. Can't say enough good things. Thanks SmartPak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Fly Sheet I purchased 2 of these fly sheets in June this year for my 24 year old and 31 year old mares, who are turned out in the early morning. The sheet does keep flies away, and the flies do not get under the sheet. It covers the horses well and protects from sun damage, too. All the fasteners are easy to use. The sheet is a soft material. I have washed the sheets with Rambo blanket wash and the repellent effect still works. These girls are not hard on sheets and these sheets are holding up well. When it is really hot and humid, e.g. in the 90s, the sheets do not allow as much evaporative cooling as being uncovered, and the horses get sweaty by 10:30am; this is worse for the mare with "Cushing's" PPID right now (Sept 1), but she has not been clipped since June 21, and is due for a full body clip. After the clip, the fly sheet protection is invaluable for her

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Updated Review- Didn't last! This fly sheet feels and looks great, but it just didn't last. The day after I posted my first review (after one week of use) the front closure ripped right off, along with the tail cord. SmartPak sent a replacement and the same thing happened after four days. My horse isn't hard on blankets either- very disappointed, this just isn't well made.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very durable My mare used this sheet for less than 2 weeks and the entire Velcro front closure ripped off. The belly straps were way too long, had to knot them. It also does not seem to work any better than a less expensive non treated sheet. I saw the same number of mosquitoes on it as on a non treated. I would not buy it again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 5 stars, except When I bought this fly sheet, it still had no reviews, which is very unlike me- however, for the price (w insect shield!) I couldn't beat it! I LOVE the fly sheet, my mare goes out alone and isn't terribly rough on things, so we don't have any holes in our fly sheet. The only thing that holds me back from giving it 5 stars across the board is the fact that the buckles have started to rust. She's been caught out in the rain acouple of times, I haven't even washed it yet either. I just figured SmartPak would have buckles that didn't rust after only acouple exposures to rain....

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks good so far! I have an Anglo Arabian who is 15.3hh and very narrow and slender. I ordered a 75" because he measures 74-76 depending. It's a bit big but I know the 72" would be too snug. The drop is quite long and big on him and I had to tie the 2 belly surcingles in knots at the shortest length to make the sheet fit him underneath so he wouldn't get any feet caught in them during turnout, although this is a common event that happens with any blanket for him. So far the sheet seems very nice and I do believe the insect shield works! In his pen he is defiantly more content than all his buddies! I can't comment on durability as I haven't had it for more than a week. I have high hopes though!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really well designed but... I wish his buddies weren't so rough on sheets. Unfortunately they have put holes in it already. It makes me very sad too because there are a lot of things that I love about this sheet. Nice drop to help shield the sun and bugs. Very cool tail loop to help keep it in place. He loves to run, buck and roll and it stayed with him (except the neck cover does slide down a bit from where it is in the picture. I wish it were longer with a halter attachment.) It is just really well designed but not as durable as my boy needs. I would recommend this without hesitation if you have a horse that is turned out by itself or doesn't have super nasty buddies.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wearing fly sheet I tried this product before there wereany reviews, but I am glad I took the chance! Very pleased with how the sheet has worn. Fits true to size. The material is substantial, but light enough to not get as hot as other products on the market. Washes easily-- great product, I would definitely buy another.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value Only used this for a few weeks sand so far it has been a very good buy. Purchased this cover due toots UV block to keep the sun off of my big grey. Good quality even after many rolls in the field. I like that it came fully assembled with the neck guard.
