Anyone have one? Interested in reviews, especially on the heavy weight.
I'd be using it on a 15.3-16.0 fine-boned, fine-coated, thin-skinned, moderately narrow TB. He gets turned out alone, but has an over-the-fence buddy and things occasionally get rowdy. Turnout in winter usually only lasts 2 hours or less (it gets very cold here). Horse may or may not be clipped...have not decided yet.
Interested in fit, rubbing, durability, warmth, and anything else you have to say about it.
My mare has the medium weight. We used it for half of the winter last year, and it is still in great shape. No rubs, seem to keep her toasty. She is not hard on her blankets so I can't comment on durability but it has held up well, and she is out 24/7.
I bought the high neck heavyweight last winter for my 16.2 TB gelding and I love it. This horse managed to tear a hole in his Rhino in a couple of weeks, but had only very minor snags in the SmartPak turnout in the three or so months he wore it. It fit him really well (and he gets rubs in all sorts of places generally), even in the high neck part, which looks pretty tricky to fit properly.
He is clipped in the winter (hunter clip) and was never cold up here in the horrible, bitter Northeastern winters. Hope that helps!

Awesome! Thank you! I just ordered it in a 78 (his regular size), so I'm hoping that will work because there were not many sizes available on the website. I can't wait to get it, though I won't have the heart to make him try it on until this heat and humidity breaks.
