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

    Rambo Protector is rated 4.5349 out of 5 by 86.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT fly sheet, sizing is horrible! The quality and feel of this fly sheet is superb, and I love it in that aspect. But the sizing on it is horrendous. My horse is normally an 84 in Rambos so that is what I originally ordered, well the drop fit him beautifully (yes, it is supposed to cover quite a bit) but the length was horribly too long. So I then ordered an 81, now the drop is slightly too short but the worst part is it that it is still TOO long. My horse is a 18h tank of an Oldenburg who's an 84/87 blanket and the 81 is still too long on him, but if I order a 78 the drop will be wayyy too short and the belly surcingles probably wouldn't even reach to buckle. I don't know what is up with the sizing on these, but they definitely need to figure something out. I am keeping the sheet just because it is quality and I do like it, but I wish the sizing wasn't so funky.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Follow Up Review This is a follow up review after ONE YEAR of use. I live in Hawaii so my horses are in these almost every day for at least 12 hours. These things wear like IRON. I have literally bought every sheet on the market and this one is hands down the best. I am including a photo that shows two of my horses wearing sheets I bought at the same time, one was freshly laundered (hosed down, soaked in oxy-clean for an hour and then machine washed on cold) to show you how well they clean up. It is soft and almost clean as new! Anyone who has experienced our red dirt knows this stuff STAINS but these sheets clean up WELL. I have absolutely no complaints about this sheet! They do run big though (my usually 82" wears the 78" and the normally 84" wears the 81").

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size down 1 size I have 2 of these fly sheets. The first one I bought in his regular Rambo size (81") and it was too large and rubbed his chest. I used it for 2 seasons, but last year I decided to buy a new one because the chest's liner had started to rip. I bought a 78" this time and it fits perfect. I have 4 other Rambo blankets and he fits 81" in all of the them, so I'm not sure why this blanket runs large.Pros1. Coverage is great2. Protects against mosquitoes/flies3. Wraps underneath the horse's belly4. Strong and doesn't ripCons1. Sizing is off it fits large. My 16.3 hh warmblood/thoroughbred cross usually wears 81" in Rambo and needed a 78" in this blanket2. I don't like how the hood fits (it slips down and twists)3. Price is high

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I purchased this size 78 sheet for a 1/2 TB mare who wears a size 81, her old green textilene Rambo died after more than 5 summers of wear. This new sheet was too narrow across the chest, she is 17" across from point to point of shoulder and too long, withers to tail. So a more narrow chested mare who wears an 80 wore it for a week, sheet too long from withers to top of tail flap. This mare is now wearing her new size 80 Kensington, which fits perfectly. On to the 3rd mare, 16.3 h. WB, normally wears a size 84, it fits thru the chest, the drop is perfect for her, still too long, this sheet measures 62", withers to top of tail flap. Rambo needs to return to the old dimensions and sizing! This sheet does wash well and easily. I like the long drop on the sides and it has quality fittings and straps. The fabric snags and frays more than textilene and the very long tail flap inhibits tail raising. I had 3 horses wearing old style Rambos for years and they were great, this one...NOT so much. I would not buy another.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Rambo products These run very large, my mare normally takes a 78, she was swimming in it, and I had to go with a 75. They changed the snaps on the front from swivel to solid snaps, I am still unsure if I like them or not. Plus they took the tabs off the belly to run the surcingle thru and I don't think it stays in place as well. Overall I like it, I will really have to wait and see about durability.... haven't had it long enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fly sheet! Both of my horses wear this sheet and it is by far the best fly sheet I have owned. The material is so tough and durable, yet it's very cool and breathable. They do run large, my horses usually wear 75" Rambos but can get away with the 72" protector fly sheet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried and true I have had these before and they work and hold up well. I was looking at the new Buca's but since it was mail order and I didn't know anyone that had one I went for the one that I know I will get several seasons out of.
