RIPSTOP FABRIC IS OUR MOST DURABLE OF OUR FABRICS
IF YOU NEED EXTRA EYE PROTECTION FROM THE INSECTS, YOU CAN NOW BUY OUR NEW 'EYE PROTECTORS' WHICH YOU CAN ATTACH TO OUR RUG/HOODS.
This Wild Horse Australia product utilises Insect Shield® Patented technology process to tightly bond Permethrin to the fabric. These products help to provide optimum protection all year round, from Permethrin sensitive, disease carrying insects. They are approved by the EPA & the World Health Organisation to last through 25 detergent washed or six months full time weathering. The protection is odourless so it will not affect your horses sensitive sense of smell. It is Insect protection that remains in your horse rug, not in your horse. Insects can bite through around or under standard fabrics. This product offers long term Insect Protection

Have brought rugs before and they have stood the test of time and durability. However this recent purchase the ears have not been sew so well, all the rest of the rug is double stitched however not the ears. I have sewn them now but it would be better.

I have been using these rugs for the last four yrs. My wonderful ASH filly has QLD Itch an elegiac reaction to insect bites. She wears her rips top insect repellent combo with hood and ears 24/7 out in the 20 acre paddock. This rug fits her very well and stops her from itching.

The best rugs I have used, cleared up any itch my horse had. Only shame can not get a tail bag attached

I buy your 'Insect Control Ripstop - Rug, Hood & Ears'
either direct or through saddlery's. They are one of the best light rugs available on the market today.
If you did want to improve them, there are 2 areas I would suggest. 1/ A heavier duty elastic on the velcro nose attachment. 2/ A heavier duty elastic on the collar strap that goes behind the ears & around the top of the neck.

These rugs seem to give instant relief to itchy horses.. My Gypsy vanner mare has stopped 90% of her itching within a few days of wearing this rug. Ill be a repeat customer for all my horse and dog rug needs. Highly recommend :-)

Mare very sensitive to Qld. itch has been in rug/hood/belly protector for 2 months, NSW. This is December and so far OK. Jan - March are worst months so wait and see. But looking good. Strap behind ears holding hood is too short, otherwise 6' fit is good for 15.2 chunky horse.

Fits my 18HH Shire perfectly!

fits my TB horse perfectly. he needs to cotton material instead of mesh to give full protection against biteing insects. a slightly thicker ripstop version would be good plus tailbag attachment.

Fits well, and seems durable so far. Horse is recovering from itch, so working well :) Very prompt dispatch, and I was contacted to check the order before shipping as I ordered inconsistent sized products.
