Rhino Plus Vari-Layer Turnout Blanket (450g Heavy, 250g Hood)
The perfect turnout for unpredictable Spring and Fall weather, now with Horseware's Vari-Layer Technology (which means more warmth with less weight)! An innovative turnout, the Rhino Plus Vari-Layer Heavy Turnout features Rhino Barrier Technology and provides more warmth with less weight, including 450g of Vari-Layer thermobonded fiberfill and a 250g detachable hood. This durable waterproof sheet will add breathable protection from wet weather without causing your horse to overheat.
In a standard horse blanket, the majority of heat is lost from the back and hip areas. Horseware's Vari-Layer design combats this via a layered blanket with increased fiberfill across those key areas that wrap closely around your horse, for longer lasting heat retention with less weight overall.
What makes the Rhino so special? Most horse turnouts have the waterproof coating applied directly to the the outer layer. The innovative Rhino Barrier Technology takes a different approach, as it actually places the Waterproof Barrier Layer with AquaTrans coating on a separate inside layer, just underneath the durable outer layer. This means that if the outer layer is damaged, the waterproof barrier below will still protect your horse.
Additionally, this turnout features a strong 1000D polypropylene outer layer. Polypropylene is 50-100% stronger than the coated polyester from which the majority of turnouts are made. Against your horse's coat is an anti-static, anti-bacterial polyester lining, that will enhance shine, smooth your horse's coat and prevent rubbing and slippage.
The Rhino Plus Vari-Layer Turnout features Horseware's Surefit Neck design with v-front closure for freedom of movement while grazing, leg arches, hood and liner loops, shine enhancing polyester lining, reflective strips, cross surcingles and a 250g detachable hood.
“Rhino’s barrier technology make it the perfect winter turnout blanket for my horses. Winter blankets take a beating, and Rhino always withstands the worst of winter days season after season.” - Sam Watson, International Eventer
