Rambo turnouts are made from super strong ballistic nylon. It is the stuff they make bullet-proof vests from; you can't get much tougher than that. The special structure of nylon allows their AquaTrans coating to bond to the nylon ensuring the coating will remain waterproof and breathable for much longer when compared to toehr materials such as polyester. That is why Horseware can give you a 3 year guarantee on Rambo turnouts. All Rambo blankets are:
Waterproof and Breathable
1000 Denier Baliistic Nylon Outer Shell
Surefit Neck Design (excluded on "The Original")-This improved cut gives a more universal shape and is designed to provide the best possible fit for all shapes and sizes. It fits well in front of the withers allowing ample room around the shoulders and chest, complimenting the fit of the 'V' front closure perfectly.
Patented 'V' Front Closure System (excluded on "The Original")-The unique closure transfers pressure above the point of the shoulder, relieving any tightness and giving the horse even more freedom. The patented 'V' shape gives your horse more room at the base of his neck allowing him to dip his head without obstruction.
Patented Leg Arches and Third Surcingle (excluded on "The Original")-The leg arches and 3rd surcingle allow for the blanket to fit snugly around the horse's shape, maximizing both freedom and protection.
Large Tail Flap
Quick Release Surcingles
PVC Coated Tail Cord (excluded on "The Original")-Replaces the usual fillet strap. The elasticized PVC covered cord is easier to clean and more flexible which takes pressure off fittings and straps.
Stainless Steel Hardware-Prevents rusting and is incredibly strong and hard wearing
Anti-Bacterial Lining-Eliminates bacteria, which multiply in the presence of dirt, moisture and heat. This can cause infections and allergies. The hydrophilic nature of the lining will conduct moisture away from the horses' body where it will the be absorbed by Horseware's unique AquaTrans coating.
Rambo 3 Year Guarantee Against Waterproofness and Breathability;
The fit of your blanket is extremely important in order to ensure the comfort of your horse and to prevent rubbing and slippage of the blanket. As horses of the same height at the wither come in a variety of shapes and sizes, it is useful to take certain measurements of your horse.
How to Measure:
Measure your horse from the center point of the chest, around the side over the high point of the wither, to the butt cheek. When you have that measurement choose the nearest size.
Other Tips for Fitting your Blanket
Belly surcingles should be adjusted to allow a hands width between staps and belly.
Keep in mind that the neck on the Rambo Wug is a higher fit, therefore the neck and chest area will be a snugger fit.
The trigger clips on the patented 'V' Front Closure System should always be closed with the clasp facing inward.
Your hand should fit comfortably between the neck and shoulder areas of the blanket. If not, the blanket could cause discomfort and rubbing.
If the blanket extends beyond the top of the tail, the blanket may be too big. If the blanket does not reach the top of the tail, the blanket may be too small. However, examine the neck and shoulder area for fit before making a decision to go for a different size.
Make sure the tail is lifted over the tail cord (fillet strap) and that the strap is securely attached on both sides. This will prevent the blanket from blowing forward.
