SmartPak Fine Mesh Fly Mask without Ears is rated

Cheap stitching, falls apart
I received this fly mask today and was impressed with how it looked. I had it on the horse for 30 minutes and came out to find it laying in the dirt. I assumed my horse pulled it off but on further inspection, all the stitching holding the velcro had come undone! My horse didn't even rip it, the thread just came out. The stitching up by the ears holding the fleece trim also came undone and created another hole along the edge. I can't even blame my horse for this! Such poor quality. Do not waste your time. It looks nice but lasts 30 minutes at the most.

Love it! I wanted a fine mesh mask without ears but that had the little forelock hole and this checked all the boxes! I also like that the fleece trim isn’t too thick (so even in Texas summer my horse doesn’t sweat in it) and it’s been very durable so far, the Velcro closure is really nice and seems to have much better stitching than every other fly mask I’ve had. The sizing seems pretty true to size. My horse is usually between a cob and full or ‘horse’ size. I went with the horse and it’s a bit on the roomy side but fits and stays on fine and stays off her eyes. Would absolutely buy again.

My favorite fly mask!
This is by far my favorite fly mask - and I have tried just about all of them! I love the clearance around my horse’s eyes. They sure don’t need an eye injury from a mask rubbing their eyes! I also like the fine mesh because I think it gives my horse better visibility as he moves around the pasture. And, the secure Velcro closure keeps the mask on better, even with a “helpful” neighbor who constantly tries to take of my horse’s mask.
