SmartPak Ultimate Neck Rug is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 94.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rug!!! I bought this a month ago. It keeps my horse dry in the rain and snow. Best rug I have owned!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice neck rug, attachments need improvement The neck rug is awesome. Easy to use and looks and works great so far. The issue is the neck attachments. They are a few inches long, so the neck rug slides forward and back. Thus has rubbed my gelding mane in a spot that is soon to be bald. I took the straps and looped them through the blanket ring, in order to shorten the straps. The neck rug is now attached directly to the blanket instead of being 3 inches or so away. Then taped the snaps so they wouldn’t get caught in his mane. This neck rug would be 5 plus stars if SmartPak could modify the attachments by shortening them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I love the blanket, not so much the hood. I bought this maybe 2 weeks ago. - I love the blanket. My horse got a new pasture mate and has managed to destroy 6 - now 7 blankets within the last 3 months. I was really hoping with all the great reviews about this blanket and the warranty I would be able to not have to worry about sending the blanket back already! The neck rug needs some work. The blanket and hood need more attachment pieces. The hood flies up when he goes to eat hay/grass/drinking. I would say it needs at least 5 or 6 more attachments. The gap between the neg rug/blanket is about an 2 inches.. THANKFULLY SmartPak's customer service is amazing and I will be sent the Ultimate Combo to try to see if it will be more sturdy for him instead of the separate items. I would recommend this blanket to a friend - only if your horse is not in a situation like mine as I know other boarders on the property have it and love it and have not had any issues. I think in my particular case, my pony being a pony, he gets pushed around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great look, good water repellency I know all neck covers create gap. But I'm not settled. I like the ventilation, but I also want more cover. This is my idea. Maybe brilliant smartpak people can do it?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seemed to be fine until.... I bought four of these to attach to four blankets I also bought from SmartPak. Only used one so far. The one I used got multiple long cuts in the material when my horse took a fall while in turnout. I would think this material would be stronger than that, but it did save the horse from cuts! Getting it replaced was a hassle too. It took over a month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds up well These neck rugs are great for horses, like my gray mare, who just love taking a mud bath! She has 2 so I can clean the layers of mud off one while she wears the other. At first, I struggled to adjust the velcro straps so the the neck rug would cover the top of her blanket adquately to keep her dry in precipitation and keep the base of her neck and withers mud-free. The first one that I bought for her was passed down to our large pony and I bought a large for the gray mare. She wears a 75" blanket and the large size neck rug is a great fit. Plenty of overlap over the blanket to keep her covered--even during her wild and crazy pasture antics. My 16.2 draft cross gelding wears 81" blankets but the large neck rug was too tight on his neck. So I bought him an XL Rockin SP neck rug and got the perfect fit! So my recommendation is to size up on these neck rugs for adequate neck coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! After buying a used smartpak ultimate neck rug I am slowly replacing all my blankets with them as it’s time to replace the old neck covers. My only Issue is that I wish they came in more color options! : )
Date published: 2020-01-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Alright It does it’s job, but it definitely could be designed better. The overall shape is very straight and doesn’t fit the shape of a horses neck. I’ve found it gapes in the front and snow/cold can get in. I will say though, I do like the double Velcro. Makes it so if the first Velcro comes undone, the whole thing won’t come off.
Date published: 2019-02-06
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Holds up, but don't like the attachment mechanism I've had this for a few years now, and while it has held up, I do not like the way it attaches to the blanket. My horse always ends up with a gap between the neck cover and the blanket, and the buckles and elastic rub on his mane cause hair to fall out. I am finally giving up on this and am going to switch to a different neck rug/blanket combo that attach more securely, and more safely.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works Well I bought the Ultimate Turnout Blanket in heavy and lite and picked up neck rugs to go with both. Let's be clear: the design is not amazing. SmartPak could definitely make improvements to the closure and the blanket attachments. However, the hoods have kept my horse warm and dry and have held up to his antics. I was worried that they would flip up often as other reviewers have noted, but my horse (who loves to roll and generally roughhouse) has only managed to get his heavy hood to flip up once. I have only used the lite a few times. While I haven't seen it flip yet, it is pretty flimsy. As for fit, I went with my gut and ordered larges. My OTTB wears a 78 in SmartPak blankets but has a short neck, so I wasn't sure. The heavy-fill hood fits well (I definitely wouldn't want any smaller). The Lite fill is a good length but has a ton of room under the neck. Altogether, these are decent neck rugs.
