We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

Battle the elements this winter with our toughest new neck rug, SmartPak Ultimate Neck Rug.
Heavy-duty nylon: Originally developed for flak jackets worn by soldiers in WWII to protect them from flying debris, this special weave of nylon is ultra durable and resists rubs and tears. It's the perfect match for the horse that's hard on his blankets.

10 Year Indestructible Guarantee- the fine print:
We are so confident in the toughness and durability of the SmartPak Ultimate Turnout Blanket, that if anything happens to this blanket within 10 years of your purchase, we’ll replace or refund it—no matter what! It’s that easy. However, the guarantee does not cover blankets that have embroidery stitched on the barrel as it compromises the integrity of the blanket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit with the Ultimate Turnout I purchased the neck cover to go with an 87" Ultimate Turnout blanket. The neck cover is a size large(the biggest option) and it is a bit small for my horse. I wish it was a little longer and wider, but it covers part of his neck. His Thoroughbred toddler-friend can get the attachments off, so it has been destroyed once but thanks to SmartPak's warranty system, I got a new one at no cost. The reason why I got the Ultimate Turnout and neck cover is because of Smartpak's great customer service and 10-year warranty.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, Fits great, easy to attach I bought a large medium weight hood to use with a size 78 medium and heavy ultimate TO. Fits perfectly. My guy is a 16.1 h 1200 lb TB/clydesdale. Sturdy construction and quality materials. Couldnt be happier with the set. It is replacing a Smartpak Classic set that was beat to pieces in 2 winters. Quality and construction of the Ultimate set is far better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality and love the 10 year warranty. Fits my ZIPPO great and he looks so handsome and seems to keep him toasty warm. Love the velcro straps to attach the hood to the blanket to the hood or visa versa.So far, so good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from awkward velcro, runs a little small the L fits my horse who usually wears a 75 or 78 blanket and it long enough but tight around the neck for my warmblood who's a 78-80. I wish they made an XL.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and dry I was very cautious buying this due to the mixed reviews. Maybe my horse is just built perfectly for it, because I've been using the neck rug (in no fill and 220g fill) consistently since November with no problems. No twisting, no moving, no sagging. He comes in warm and dry from his jaw line to his tail. For anyone curious, he's a draft cross, about 16.1, fairly substantial neck that ties in high on his shoulders. I've seen him get down and wallow in the mud, then get up without the rug moving at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Durable Super product! After many blankets...this has held up for a young horse that we call "Wreck it Ralph"! Let your imagination do the rest, you could never come up with more creative ways than him to wear his blankets. Very well made, durable and it looks nice!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the blanket, but the hood needs some work I bought this to go with the ultimate SP turnout. It's alright, but there could definitely be some improvements made. Like I said for the blanket, I would have liked more color options. Further, the only closures are velcro, which a horse that is hard on blankets would rip up immediately. It would be better with a buckle or something more durable. I wish they made it so that it was actually part of the blanket, too, instead of having to order a separate piece. That being said, it runs quite large, but stays in place and does the job. I think it is overpriced for the quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fit & seems sturdy I bought a large for my WB even though she is very refined and wears a 75" blanket and I'm glad I went up a size from what they recommended.Pros: Heavy weight, stays in place, doesn't rub.Cons: This will not easily connect to any other blanket I own because of where the D rings on most blankets are located. But it matches perfectly with the SmartPak turnout I bought at the same time!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rubs out mane I used this to protect my horse's neck from cold rain while she was clipped for the winter, and sadly it rubbed out the entire bottom half of her mane. Probably just the fit or from grazing, but the quality is great and the waterproofing held up well. If it fits your horse you'll be in good shape.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great neck cover I've used the Ultimate Turnout for two seasons now and it's one of my favorites. I picked up the neck cover this fall to use should it get really cold for my clipped horse. The fit is good and has a nice overlap on the blanket. I expect it will be as durable as the blanket has been since it's the same material.
    Date published: 2015-11-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horses are outside most of the time. They have to work hard as staff horses for hunting, but I want them protected from the elements. The material this neck cover and blanket are made from is fantastic. You can just feel the superior quality. Thank you.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hasn't held up as well as the turnout... I bought this product about a month ago and have not been impressed with it. I loves the matching turnout sheets and blankets I bought, but the neck covers are not as durable. In the first few days my horses had already destroyed one hood and ripped the stitching on another.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ultimate neck rug, ultimate failure I really like SmarkPak and use them quite often for just about everything horse-related. So writing a bad report for one of their products brings me no joy at all.I am returning the Ultimate neck rug (unlined) for the third time. There are quality control issues with this item that could be remedied rather quickly. The fault lies with the stitching on all of the connecting pieces (velcro closures, connecting straps). Most of these pieces are attached with a single line of stitching that are not backstitched over to lock the pieces down to the rug. Double or triple stitching (or strong thread) is a requirement for horse turnout gear - they are big animals and they are tough on their clothes!My first neck rug was just plain demolished in 2 days. The second survived for about a week before all of the strapping came unstitched. The third I reinforced all of the stitching on the velcro and the elastic connecting straps. The center (unreinforced) strap came unstitched. Unfortunately, what I didn't reinforce was the strapping on the blanket! Those pulled loose so the neck rug became unanchored. My horse's pasturemates then proceeded to "help" my horse pull the flapping hood over his head.I know the neck rug and turnout blankets have a 10 year warranty, which I truly appreciate, but at this point I think I'm going to have to bail on replacing the neck rug for a 4th time. Maybe over the summer SmartPak can make adjustments to have the stitching quality issue fixed (neck rugs and blanket anchors). I'd be more than happy to purchase something that would last longer than 2 weeks!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good coverage but doesn't stay on The neck rug has good coverage but my horse can take it off because the attachments are not strong enough. A better design of the way the rug attaches to the blanket and the way it closes in front is needed.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great blanket but my TB is on his 4th neck cover I bought this blanket because of the guarantee and the fabric has so far proven indestructible, BUT the stitching on the Velcro closures on the neck cover are another matter. It is just not adequate to hold. The straps pull off the hood at the stitching when any pressure is applied. That being said Smart Pak has promptly replaced the Hood each time. But they need to redesign the stitching.Smart Pak is a great company and I would purchase this blanket again and will. The neck cover however just does not measure up.
