- Quality and durability of flysheet
- Fly sheet coverage, fit and overall comfort for your horse
- Fly sheet fabric breathability, fly protection and UV protection
Here are some of the best fly sheets we found.
#1 Rambo Protector Fly Sheet: We voted this the very best fly sheet because it is soft, yet extremely durable. It includes a neck cover, extra belly coverage and offers good UV protection. The 2 snaps on the front of the sheet are super easy and this fly sheet always stays in place. Some customers were worried that in extra hot, humid climates it would be too warm, but the horses we tested the Protector fly sheet on in dry 90 degree weather were comfortable.
#2 Rambo Fly Buster Fly Sheet: This fly sheet is just like the Rambo Protector but with insect repellent infused into the fabric. This fly sheet is durable, soft and very high quality. The horses wearing this fly sheet were extremely comfortable.
#3 Kensington Protective Fly Sheet, Kensington figured it out when they determined the cut of this blanket. It just seems to fit everyone well, which is so important to prevent rubbing. The textilene is the most bomb proof material out there so is great for horses who tend to destroy their fly sheets. Some people think the fly sheet is too stiff especially before it's broken in a bit. However, it will last and last and is so stylish in the great assortment of plaids. We also like how Kensington offers the extra pieces à la carte allowing you to assemble the perfect level of fly protection for your horse, with items like the neck cover, belly band, fly boots and fly masks - all in the matching plaids!
#4 WeatherBeeta ComFiTec Ripshield Plus Detach-a-Neck: We are often asked by our customers for a fly sheet that is tough, but super breathable for horses in hot climates that are hard on their fly rugs. This one fits the bill. The fabric is very durable and is breathable, allowing you to keep it on your horse all day, even during hot temperatures. That being said, if you are looking for sun protection, you might want to try one of Weatherbeeta's other options - the WeatherBeeta ComFiTec Airflow Detach-a-Neck Fly Sheet has 70% UV protection, where this one only offers 20%. The WeatherBeeta Ripshield offers great coverage, including a detachable neck and a removable belly flap. We preferred the chest clips on the Rambo to the twin buckles on this sheet. It also has leg straps, which some people love. I'd rather have a fly sheet like the Rambo that doesn't need them and have 2 fewer straps to snap in place. However, the fit was very comfortable on most horses. This is a superb fly sheet for the price, somewhat less expensive than the Rambo fly sheets mentioned.
#5 Amigo Bug Buster: THE fly sheet for your horse if you are in extremely hot, humid climates. Not as durable as the above 3, but softer, lighter weight and more breathable fabric that will ensure your horse stays comfortable. Extra belly coverage, a detachable neck cover and sun reflective colors. This fly sheet features Horseware's effective No-Fly Zone technology to keep insects away, saving you money on fly spray, and adding another effective level of insect defense.
#6 Amigo Bug Rug: One of our all time best sellers, we had to put this on our list as our customers' happiness means a lot, and they keep buying this one. A great fly sheet for the price, featuring a detachable neck cover. We wish this fly sheet were a bit more durable, but the tradeoff is a fabric that is super soft and lightweight, ensuring a cool, comfortable fly free horse. This one is a great choice for horses outside in really hot, humid climates.
