    SmartPak Deluxe Neck Rug is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 70.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with my weatherbeeta Since Weatherbeeta doesn't sell single neck rugs (you have to buy a new blanket+neck rug together), I ordered this one from Smartpak. My mare is a 16 1" appendix that wears an 81 weatherbeeta. I bought the large and thought it was a bit too wide for her neck, but kept it anyway because I was worried a medium would be too short. There's a top clip and an elastic band with velcro on either side to connect the neck rug to the blanket. It lined up perfectly and I like that it has the elastic to let her move her neck comfortably, although I noticed that when she had her head down to eat hay, it sometimes slides over her ears, probably because it's a little wide around the neck. In true neck rug fashion, there's a little gap at her chest between where the blanket ends and the neck rug begins. Oh well. It stays in place in the pasture really well even with wind, and is totally waterproof. We've already had wet snow and sleet and she was completely dry underneath. It looks nice and well constructed, the trim is pretty. I wish it were more adjustable to fit the neck, and that it would come in Navy with burgundy trim. I would definitely buy this again, and it has made me consider trying Smartpak's blankets too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Neck Rug This neck rug fits great with the Smark Pak blanket I had already purchased.and has never moved or shifted since it was put on. My horse just loves having it on with all of the cold windy weather we are having. Great purchase!!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Difficult to fit my 15.2 hh WB Stallion. I purchased the SP Deluxe neck rug - no fill because I had done a strip clip on my boy .Even though I purchased the correct size neck cover for the 72" SP Deluxe sheet there was a huge diamond shaped gap that one does not see in the photo because the horse in the catalogue ,is side view only . I called SP, and being fantastic as they are they sent the large for me to compare . That was just to big and would have needed to be to fold under at the top by the ears. So I opted to keep the 'correct' size for the rug. Frankly it has been a frustrating purchase because the base flips up when he rolls so there is a band of wet if it has rained or snowed while he was out. I guess I am going to have to buy some extra velcro to sew on to the rug and neck rug to keep the thing down. This is not the least of my issues though. It seems to constantly shift one way and pushes the 1/2 of his mane under the hood to the opposite side . the only way to alleviate this issue is to put a slinky hood under it but that would get wet . UGH

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fit! I bought this to go with the matching heavy turnout blanket. "Unfortunately", the weather's not been cold enough to put it to the test, but it fits my guy very well, makes him look extremely handsome, and I know he'll appreciate the extra protection that this will afford during the winter months! The "GOOD" rating is only because he hasn't put it to the real "horse test"!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality I bought this for my 14.1 pony who lives outside. She is a 66 blanket so I ordered the small, but that was a little short on her neck so I returned it and got the medium. It is a little large in the shoulder area but fits the rest of her neck well. Not a perfect fit but it will definitely keep her warm and stays in place nicely.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gap in front a bit too big My 6 yo, 15.2 hh WB stallion ( baroque shaped barrel ,but not broad chested yet) ,has the SP size 72 T/O sheet and since he is now out at night and has a chaser clip and will be moving up to a high trace or blanket clip once I get my new clippers , I wanted some more neck protection. I got the medium which ought to have been the correct size BUT even though fits just right on his neck as for length and depth yet snug enough to not slide or bunch down there is a large ( 7" from top point to bottom point) diamond shaped gap between rug front and the way this neck rug comes together. This is a bit frustrating since the underside of the neck is where the wind pipe is and is also the 1st place to get clipped. OK so I did not read all 54 reviews before ordering and out of the 10 I did read everyone says " fits great " , no one mentioned a gap! SO I called Customer service ( SP's customer service is why I keep shopping with them) and they did say there is NOT supposed to be a gap so they sent me a large just to compare. The large arrived today the gap is smaller but still there even after I snugged up the rug chest closure to it's shortest/smallest points which I worry may be too tight for his shoulder. Unfortunately the Large is too long for his neck ( his dam is actually dual registered 1/2 Arab and Oldenburg and he pulled alot of Arab from her) so we will have to make do with the Med but I am not happy about having to make do. I feel like there could easily be extra fabric given to the bottom front part of the hood. If I were designing it I would add a sort of 'bib' that comes across the chest and snaps or hooks on one side.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good option for versatility I got the Deluxe blankets in Lite and Medium weight for my new mare. She wears a 78 so she should be in the L neck rug; the first time I tried it it seemed HUGE and she has a slightly short neck for her measured size so I thought the M would work. Unfortunately, when she puts her head down to graze, the M leaves large gaps around the blanket so I've exchanged them again for the Large. I hope the fit works ok. Not sure of the durability of the attachment straps, but she isn't super hard on blankets so it should be fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Neck Rug I recently purchased this item along with the Deluxe blanket. I got the no fill as I was just looking for something to protect him from the elements, not warmth. This will definitely do the job. When I took this out of the bag I thought it was going to be way to big, but it fit perfectly! I am excited to see how it holds up. I will be sure to post on how it holds up after a few uses!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this hood! I bought this to go along with my Deluxe T/O sheet and I love it! My mare has a long neck me wears an 81 blanket and the large hood fits her perfectly. I love the added protection it gives her.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Neck Rug & Great Price!!!! This neck rug is a perfect addition to my pony's heavy weight blanket. I bought it because it had the same attachment as the older Weatherbeeta blankets, and it works better than I expected. The neck rug comes down well over the edges of the blanket and up to the ears, so even when the pony is grazing it doesn't raise up like some other neck rugs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product great price I bought this a few weeks ago and have had it on my guy ever since. It's pretty cold this time of year where I live and I just needed a little extra protection for him so I got the no fill. It keeps him warm and dry and it's seems very durable! It's held up very nicely and I will definitely be buying more like this in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent addition to the smartpak deluxe blanket! Great for those chilly nights to add some additional warmth! Fits great with the smartpak deluxe blanket and stays in place all night long. (Has 3 secure places it attaches so it stays in place!) Quality is excellent just like the matching blanket.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I hope it works! I'm so glad Smartpak is good about their returns because my gelding does not follow the sizing guidelines! He is half arab and has a very petite neck! He wears a 78" blanket and the mediums size hood seems to be a decent fit! I wanted a hood for a little extra warmth on the days when we are below zero here in MN. Time will tell how it holds up and if it rubs on his mane at all....In the future, I think it would be nice to have all snaps to attach to the blanket instead of the two velcro pieces however! I do like the double velcro in front as I have found single velcro straps do not stay put!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to the Deluxe turnouts Our horses are out a lot more where they are living now so having some extra neck protection on the colder days and nights is important. These handy neck rug covers easily attach/detach to/from the Deluxe turnout blankets for convenience and are an exact color match, too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good.... Just got this neck rug. It fits well and has good attachments. I am using it with a blanket and sheet from another brand and it fits them fine. Horse was turned out in heavy rain and stayed dry. Don't know how it will hold up but I am hoping it will last!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Destroyed in about a week Bought this for my field boarded QH. He isn't that tough on his blankets, had a neck cover that previously lasted all last winter and most of this one but it was a bit too big and becoming worn.Sprung for this cover, and he broke the velcro closure to the point it wasn't functional in about a week! Also tore the connector that went from hood to blanket. Not impressed at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good crossover I bought this in lightweight for my other branded turnout sheets/blankets. The other brand only had medium or heavy hoods available. I simply sewed a new ring to the wither pad on the blanket/sheet and was able to attach this hood just fine. I use it only periodically for heavy cold rains or very snowy days. The black matched my sheets fine and kept my horses' necks dry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought separately from Blanket but Perfect fit Did not buy neck rug since did not think it got that cold here but this winter is much colder and wetter than usual. Would have ordered the wrong blanket but customer service saved me. Easy fit and easy on and off, my mare seems to like if. Keeps mud off her mane.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Initially great...but broke quickly I bought this to go with my ultimate turnout blanket, figuring I'd save a little $$ and get the cheaper neck rug...how much abuse can a neck rug go through anyways?? Well about a week and a half after purchasing my mare came in with the neck rug un-velcroed but still attached to the blanket, the top velcro piece has fallen off, the stitching had come loose. It was still attached to the neck rug and I was able to stitch it back on. I contacted smartpak and they were great! I was able to return it (had to wash it first) and in the meantime purchased the Ultimate neck rug and have been happy with the quality of the ultimate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers well Fits great. The only problem I have with it which was the same problem I had with the quilted one I purchased the year before is that the stitching for the velcro tabs are not reinforced so I had to repair both neck covers. Once that was done they both stay closed very well.
    Date published: 2015-01-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I was looking for in a neck hood. This is pretty much exactly what I was looking for. I was looking for a Weatherbeeta neck cover but they don't make them anymore sold separately. So this was a good runner up. I like the material and neck closure much like Weatherbeeta. The top strap is to short to attach to the blanket I have so I just use the Velcro on the sides. I also would have preferred a 300 gram fill but that was not an option so I got the 220. It seems well made and over all is getting the job done.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good protection Purchased this neck rug for a little mare who is in an in/out stall in all weather. It has given her good protection from the wet weather we have been having. It is on 24 hours a day and has stayed put. Just what I was looking for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fit function and quality Bought this neck rug for the matching deluxe turnouts in medium and heavy. Attaches easily, stays on comfortably, no gaps or rubs. Fits true to sizing guide. Excellent construction. Horse is cozy and dry even though he likes rolling in mud. So glad I bought the set. Thankful for reasonable price.
