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'!).

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.

  • Medium weight provides 220 g of polyfill keeps your horse warm and comfortable
  • Light provides premium waterproof protection without fill
  • 1050 denier nylon is ultra durable and the toughest blanket material available
  • Nylon outer is waterproof and breathable, so your horse stays dry and protected from the elements without feeling stifled underneath
  • Nylon lining
  • Sturdy snap attachment with two additional VELCRO® brand closures lets you easily attach the rug to your turnout, keeping it secure so that it can work efficiently 

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 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 Best Value Purchased this for a horse with a pasture mate that is very hard on blankets. So far it is still in great shape and the guarantee gives peace of mind :-)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit and nice looking! I bought this to go with the SmartPak Ultimate Turnout Blanket. This hood fit my 14.3 hand Mustang the best of any of any that I've tried on him. The hood matched his blanket perfectly. The hood did a great job of staying put and keeping my horse warm and dry. I think the design of the Velcro closures could be improved so that they are more durable. Overall though I really like the hood and think it s a great value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functions well The neck cover seems durable and waterproof so far. I have not had any issues with the velcro tabs like some of the other reviewers. The large fits my TB that wears a 78 blanket well. My only complaint is that the straps to attach it are too long. Unless I tie a knot in them to take up some of the length, the neck cover often flips forward leaving a gap between it and the blanket, making it not effective. Once I shortened them though, it has been working wonderfully, so it could use a re-design on the way it attaches in my opinion.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice neck rug, poor velcro closing! I bought this neck rug last year. It matched the turnout blanket perfectly. The second time I used this neck rug I found it hanging off my horse's withers by the only snap on it. The velcro closure isn't enough. It either needs a snap closure on each side as well as the back of the neck or much stronger velcro. The snap size could be smaller as well. Seems to run big. I intend to keep it but am disappointed in its performance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I bought this just before multiple snow storms and sub zero temps. My horse lives outside with a loafing shed shelter shared with other horses. The neck rug worked beautifully in keeping snow from working down the front of the blanket. It is easy to put on and stays in place well. The fabric is water proof and tear resistant.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Velcro straps ripped off.....again! Sending back my second neck cover because the velcro closure is just not good enough.  Upon inspection they are barely sewn on at all.  Two simple lines of stitching is not going to cut it.  I love the durability of the nylon, it fits well and matches the blanket perfectly, but if it doesn't stay together it does no good.  Think I'll get a refund instead of an exchange until they improve the design.  Again, thank goodness for Smartpak's reputable customer service.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from fits well, but broke fast. In fairness, SmartPak's guarantee means there's a new one on the way, but within three weeks, my boy managed to lose the Velcro closure on the front.  I went with this line of blankets because he's out with the roughest bunch of geldings and as a 3 year old, he plays. Rough. I was becoming annoyed with the amount of blankets I was going through, so I ordered the ultimate and the neck cover to go with it. It fits beautifully, is easy to attach to the blanket, sized well and keeps him warmer in the frigid New England winter. I would have given the neck cover a 1 star if it was not for the 10 year replacement, which is why I afforded it 4. It did break, but the company is rectifying it.
