    SmartPak Deluxe Neck Rug is rated 4.1333 out of 5 by 45.
    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Velcro! I almost love everything about this neck rug. The look, style, and fit are amazing, but I hate how it attaches to the body portion of the rug. The velcro has been stripped and no longer stays on just right. I would love to see snaps in place instead, or even better, velcro similar to the front of the hood. That's the only reason I wouldn't rate it at 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sizing was easier than thought I wanted to make sure my TWH mare was good to go with the winter (she's being field boarded with a run in shelter). Wanted to make sure she stay protected and matched this up with the Deluxe Turn Out. Sizing was very easy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the ease of Velcro. I bought this a month ago because we needed to body clip my Morgan to participate in Equine Affaire this year and with tempetures being below normal this fall Fritz has been snug as a bug in a rug.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good coverage Coverage is good and product works well with all my sheets and blankets. Definitely offers my horse the protection from wind and rain that I was looking for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looooove this neck rug!!!! Here in upstate NY, in October it gets into the low 30's at night. The necks' of my show horses get fuzzy overnight! The SmartPak deluxe neck rug was the ONLY one that fit my horse. 16.1 Hanoverian with slightly crested neck. All other brands were too tight around his neck. With that said, if your horse has a thin neck, not sure if this one (horse size) would be too loose. One other thing, I got the heavy weight, and if the temperature is above 40 degees, my horse sweats, even with his summer coat, and when I decreased the weight of his blanket. The neck rugs keep them really, really warm, bear that in mind!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice neck rug This neck rug is functional and easy to use. Has only been used a handful of times but so far no issues with the velcro or unraveling that other reviewers had- the covers seem to be high quality and durable. The large size fits very well on our horses (size 81), actually better than our Amigo neck covers. A very nice addition to our horses wardrobes on those super cold days!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from SmartPak Deluxe Neck Rug My horse has worn this 3 times and the seam is already apart and the flap that holds it together came off.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Neck Rug - uses velcro instead of snaps. V The neck rug uses Velcro instead of snaps. We will have to see how it holds up - but Velcro in past blankets gets clogged with hair and wears out - so, we will have to see.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money Really cheap stuff and it broke the very first day my horse was out with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Secure Winter is here with a vengeance, and I am so glad I had purchased this. It is  well made, fits securely, and stands up to turn-out buddies and their attitude.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits Nicely I bought the non-insulated version of this neck rug to go on the SmartPak Deluxe blanket. I was worried about the fit in light of earlier reviews, as they made it sound like the width of the neck rug would be too big in the large (he has a size 78 blanket), but that the medium would be too short. I went with the large and it fits my 16.1 hh TB really well.  My only suggested improvement (and why I only gave 4 stars rather than 5)  would be to add some metal rings to put the velcro fasteners through rather than relying on the vertical strip of velcro - getting that lined up so that the horizontal strips of velcro attach evenly is a bit of a challenge, even with a cooperative horse. But a small complaint on an otherwise nice neck rug.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Usual, great quality! I have had several horses over the years and they always, always get a new SmartPak sheet. They are durable, fit well, and have great features like the snap and buckle front closures which make them uniquely adjustable. The coordinating neck cover is no different: well made, strong Velcro closures and it attaches effortlessly to the sheet. Love SmartPak value and selections..not to mention top notch customer service! Thanks SmartPak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, comfy & nice fit! Bought this to attach to matching rug. Stays on great & fits perfect. Just right for my trace-clipped horse when he needs extra warmth. A little pricey in comparison to the cost of the blanket, but worth it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor durability I bought this for a 25+ yo retiree and it fit and looked really nice. However it only made it 2 days before the lining ripped out on the inside in 3 separate places. The other horses in the field still have grazing muzzles so it wasn't them, and this old guy horse isn't rough on blankets at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this, Mom! I had thought about investing in a neck rug for my TB Mare for a while. And this spring seemed to be the right time. Since it arrived we have had a snow storm a week for several weeks. This is just too cold for April!The rug arrived the day before a storm. I took it out, tried it on my girl and realized there are no rings on her blanket! Well, being a retired tailor, I added one, figuring it would hold things for that one storm. 3 storms later, the rug is still staying in place and working fine.My mare is very pleased!. She will ask for a blanket when she's cold. Now she asks for the neck rug as well! With just the one ring it has stayed in place very nicely. She is weathering the spring cold weather very well.My next purchase will be a matching blanket as her old one is about on its last legs.The only down side I found is it was a little awkward to put on the first few times. Seems like the velcro is backwards. But now that I'm used to it, it's fine. Goes on easy and stays put. Both of us are pleased with her new look!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I used This for three days and the seams started pulling apart. Not the quality I would expect from smart pak.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, adaptable This is a great hood- I bought it to attach to a non SmartPak blanket and it works great. There are two snaps and it is very secure. Had ordered the medium and it was too small when my horse was grazing- he's a 78 and the large works great!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase This neck rug fits my SmartPak blanket really well and has managed to withstand the beating that it gets on a daily basis. My horse lives outside 24 x 7 and so far there are no rips or tears anywhere. It is a little short. My horse has a really short neck so I ordered the medium and its a little short for her, so be aware of that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great additionto the turnout blanket. So happy I bought is effortless to put on or take off, snaps easily into the matching turnout and seems comfortable and warm. Great products!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great neck piece This smartpak neck piece has worked great for my horse! She was clipped for the first time and it is keeping her plenty warm. Recommend this to use for an cheaper neck!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SMARTPAK DELUXE RUG WINS! We have used both Rambo and Amigo neck rugs - and like the SmartPak best. It is light weight and easy fitting - simple to make work with any blanket system. NO rub on mane - horses love it. So do we.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't last one night of use Not a bad neck rug for the money. It seemed to be nicely made, with sturdy velcro and fabric. Sadly after one night of use the stitching on one of the velcro closures came apart, so the velcro piece came loose and stuck to its "partner" piece of velcro. So it was no longer holding the rug shut. I think if the stitching on the velcro didn't break it would have held up nicely. My horse isn't very hard on his blankets either, which surprised me to see it broken the next morning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from neck cover This is a great neck cover that has held up to my wild mans crazy antics! Very durable and clips have never come undone, even while wrestling with the other horses . I ordered a Large for my 16.1 hand thoroughbred who wears a 78 blanket and found the cover to be a little big, but it definitely works well. Would recommend it 100%!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Exactly as Hoped I bought this matching neck rug to go with the turnout blanket purchased last year. Fits well, very well made and no sign of any problems with the velcro. The SmartPak Deluxe blankets are being worn by many horses at our big barn and it's no wonder. Definitely a great product at a great price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife loves this neck rug!! I gave this neck rug to my wife for Christmas for her horse Ray and she loves it. I was looking everywhere for a gift that she could use and one that would last a long time, and I found it with this product. Your quality product made her Christmas and the smile on her face made mine!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from better than i thought my gelding lives outside year round with limited shelter. and in addition he's been body clipped (i want to guarantee he's cool/dry when i put him away hence the body clipping) meaning i want him snug and warm at night. and for the record he is not very gentle with his blankets. they typically have a hole in them within 2 far it's held up to his antics. i'm guessing smartpak has listened to the comments of their customers because i have no problems with the velcro and the stitching seems tight. i'm very happy with his neck cover and he seems pretty happy with it. it seems to be pretty breatheable because he wasn't sweated up at all after running around the pasture in it in 50* weather.when i first used it, i didn't have the deluxe turnout so i attached the straps to my rambo liner and that semed to work out well. i just wish smartpak would add the dee rings to their thinsulate blanket.
