    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Design These sounded like a good idea but are a big flop. I have a 16.1 morgan gelding with normal legs and there is no way they fit. Too big. Twist around all the time. Can not speak to the issue of durability because I have only had them 2 weeks. Bad design.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had to be Returned Unfortunately they had to be returned. I bought 3 sets for 3 horses - one 17.0hh and two 17.1hh. Even though I have larger horses, the Velcro was too long (or inappropriately placed) so by the time the boots were fastened there was little Velcro attached and lots of Velcro flapping in the breeze. The plastic stays on the back of the boots permanently crumpled, letting the boots collapse to the fetlocks. Once crumpled the stays could not be straightened so the boots could no longer be placed straight on the lower leg. All of this happened over two-day's use. I appreciate that SmartPak guarantees their products so I was able to return the fly boots.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Concept but Don't Actually Work Despite wrapping these as tightly as I can, these boots do NOT stay up. My horses include Warmbloods, a Friesian cross, and an Arabian. The horse-sized boots are too big around on all but the Friesian, and need a longer strip of Velcro. I am switching to the Kensington fly boots, as they do stay up.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The quality is good However, I think they are too thick and heavy. I don't believe they will breathe well, and the horses' legs will heat too much. They do seem very durable on the other hand. But I'm willing to sacrifice that for their well-being.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! I purchased these about two weeks ago to replace the typical plastic mesh type boots from another company as those boots were giving my older mare rubs on her hind legs. These are a soft material, very similar to the mesh on sneakers, only thicker. There is nothing to rub her legs on these boots! We call them her bedroom slippers :). However, if you have burrs in your pasture, these boots would probably not be a good choice for you. The plastic stay in the back molded itself to the actual shape of her leg (I'm guessing from her body warmth?), which really helps them stay in place. I love that the fronts and hinds are sized appropriately for the differing lengths of front and hind legs. I did not find the Velcro tabs to be too difficult to undo, especially since they have a small "grab tag" on the ends. I liked these boots so much that I immediately purchased another pair for my other horse.The fit seems good too (I ordered two pairs in the cob size). My older mare is a bulldog type QH with thick, stocky legs. These fit just right with no gaps, and the Velcro matches up completely. My other mare is an Arab/QH with finer legs, and there is some overlap on the front of these boots for her and the Velcro overlaps a bit at the ends, but the fit is still good. She has not undone the Velcro yet either, even with the overlapping bit.My only concern is how well the stay will remain in place in the boot itself. I think it could use some reinforcement to keep it from rubbing through the top or bottom of the "sleeve" it is in---perhaps some heavy webbing on the inside of the fleece where it won't touch the horse? I do think they will last as long as any other fly boot I have tried though, and the price is excellent.These will be my fly boots of choice from now on! Thank you SmartPak!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive! Have held up so far... But it's only been a week. Haven't shifted or fallen down at all and he has been wearing them 24/7. Hope they keep up through the rest of the fly season!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Boots! My 16.1, thoroughbred mare has been wearing these wraps during the day for 3 weeks. Smart Pak offered them as a replacement for a pair of Fly Wraps which had lost a Velcro strap within a couple of days. These wraps don't slip down my girl's long, skinny legs like the other wraps did. They have a strip of plastic along the back that has conformed to her leg. She occasionally tugs at a wrap and turns it around. The material is thicker than I had imagined it would be, and I was afraid they might be too hot, but even in our hot, humid climate, she is not sweating under the wrap. The wraps definitely help to give her some peace from those pesky flies!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fly Boots I've had the SmartPak flyboots for several weeks now on both of my horses, and they're working very well. I find them easy to put on and remove, they stay in place, and they give great protection from flies. I will definitely buy these again. They are a great value for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit, softer than others I've used I really like the softer feel and smooth fit of these fly boots. My mare is a fly magnet and these fly boots do a good job keeping her legs fly-free. Super velcro closures and a stabilizer along with back keep them from sagging. Easy to hose clean and they dry quickly. I have used two other brands in the past-these are my choice.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shifting and difficulty keeping the boots in place The boots lasted well for the first few weeks. I'm having more difficulty keeping them in place now, particularly the rear boots. One issue is the Velcro on the boot themselves needs to be longer to allow the tabs to fully attach. When first put on, a good half of the tab is without anything to attach to. More Velcro could help keep them in place and stop their annoying tendency to twist around on the leg. I would try them again if improvements were made but not otherwise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poor flies never had a chance! The soft mesh fabric seems so much more comfortable but it's fitted so the flies can't get in at the top or bottom. The Velcro is SUPER strong and they haven't come off in the pasture yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied My mare is constantly stomping the flies off her legs so decided to try the fly boots. Have only been using them a couple of weeks but so far they have been great. Biggest concern was whether or not they would stay in place and they do. Fit is good and so far very sturdy. I have a small Arabian and ordered the cobb size. Easy to put on and take off. I have not washed them yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously Good Buy I have a giant Dutch Warmblood mare that really, really hates flies. She gets fussy when I take these boots off and allow flies access to her legs. She loves them, which means I love them. They're the only ones I've tried that stay put. As others have mentioned, the Velcro is ridiculously strong. I have to allow a couple of extra minutes to get these things off before I tack up. These fly boots are well worth the price and I will buy them again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the ergonomic fit. I have found the front boots to be excellent. Very pleased with how they fit and that they stay up, my horse has gotten no rubs from these as of this time.The back boots however slouch quite a bit - you really have to do them up as tight as you can. The plastic "stay" that runs up the back has warped from the slouching (so there is a bend in it besides the one it's made with) and I can not get it to straighten out. So far this has not caused any rubbing, but I'm keeping an eye on it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fly Boots I have been using these fly boots for 3 days and they are the best I have ever bought. I have a 24 year old Arabian that is a bug magnet. Over the 14 years I have owned him I have tried every brand of fly boots on the market. Either they did not fit well, would not stay up, rubbed, tore, or he did not like them. These are soft, easy to put on, are staying up beautifully, easy to fit to hIs legs, and he has not protested at all. He and I both are happy with them.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not cover the top of the hoof The first time we fitted them they did not cover the edge of the hoof so flies still bother them. Then they slid because of the loose connection around the hoof. After one wearing there was a hole in one the size of my horses hoof. It slid off and dragged until it wore through.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from They do the job They look impressive when they come out of the package. They fit nicely and it was nice that the rear boots were longer than the front. The only problem I am having is they are very hard to take on and off. It is a two handed job for sure. The large Velcro straps are a bit much for the horses that don't mess with the boots and leave them on. The Velcro is VERY strong. Maybe they will loosen up a bit after use but if you don't have upper body strength...good luck getting them off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value These fly boots are wonderful! They conform to the shape of his legs and stay on very securely. There is no slipping or turning on his leg. And he is very rough on his "clothes"!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from dissapointed I was very excited when I opened box and saw these boots. The material feels really good and they seemed to fit my horse well. But, unfortunately even after I fitted them correctly they slid down and around. there is a rigid insert up the back of the boots and it looked as though that would help hold them in the correct spot, but not onlly didn't it help, they slid around to the front and this rigid area bent. i think they might be ok if you adjusted them a lot, but they just didn't seem to work for my horse. the cashels do fit better, but they fall apart after one season. i have had the best luck with the kensington fly boots.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from decent fly boots My mare's Cashel fly boots were finally starting to fall apart so wanted to get a new pair before they bit the dust. Decided to give Smartpak's fly boots a try since I've really liked everything else I've bought under their brand name. The boots have a flat plastic rod up the back seam to help them keep their shape and prevent slippage, and are also slightly ergonomically shaped. Despite this, the boots still slid down on my mare's front legs the first time I put them on her. (I have not used the hind leg ones yet.)The next day, tried to get the bottom velcro tighter to help prevent slipping, but when I got home from work, they had still dropped some. They don't slip nearly as bad as other brands, but they don't stay in place as well as the Cashel's. Also, the large velcro tab in the middle can be a pain to undo. It's just so big, you have to use 2 hands; one to hold the boot in place, the other to work the tab up. That's another thing I liked about the Cashel's-- could pull the tabs up and remove the whole boot with just one hand. I love the material of Smartpak's fly boots, they do an excellent job keeping the flies off her legs (where they're covered) and they're very well made, but they still slip some and the large velcro tab in the middle annoys me every time.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disgusted I was very disappointed in this product. I bought it over other fly boots 1. because it was made by SmartPak and I believe that they make quality products and 2 because of the soft air mesh.I put the fly boots on late Fri afternoon, didn't check my horses Sat(I board), and by Sun morning on all three of my horses they were swimming around their pasterns. I fastened the boots according to the rule of thumb "tight enough to allow two fingers under" Apparently that wasn't tight enough.I am very disappointed and disgusted because as I said before, SmartPak usually has quality products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful fly boots The inside next to the horse's skin is a soft fabric, so should be very gentle. The cob size fit my 15'2 hand horse well. The Velcro attachments seem very strong. I am very impressed with this product. They look like they should be durable.
