Product Reviews by Customers

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Fly Sheet This is pretty much the only thing that helps in the summer. My Thoroughbred is very thin-skinned and fly sprays do not last long if the weather is hot!! It is very durable and strong. It only has a few tears in it from him rubbing on a board or nail. Second year of use! I also think there's a tear from the mice but other than that I love this fly sheet and so does my horse. Sometimes, it slips but I adjust it and I love the fact that it keeps him clean when he rolls! March 30, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worth Buying I have a HUGE palomino Quarter Horse gelding who lives in pasture. I bought the blanket to keep the flys off of him, especially with the nicks and scratches pasture horses get. This sheet holds up very well. Had it for about three years and wears it year round (use a Lycra sheet under in the winter). It is definitely worth buying. March 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Product! I have a 6yr. old gelding who is on turn out virtually 24/7 during the summer months. He is playful and tough on his apparel. This sheet still looks like new after 4 months of wear. He will get several summers out of it! I will only buy this fly sheet in the future! November 26, 2011

Rated 4 out of 5 by Didn't fit my arabian... If you have a smaller built horse with skinny shoulders/short neck this does not fit! It was super long on her sides, from the withers to the chest was way to big/long so it did not fit her neck correctly, etc... I recommend this type of sheet for stockier, bigger horses... and it RUNS SMALL. My horse is a true 72" and a 74" was too little.. returning it and going to get a different style. May 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great sheet! clearence priced this sheet is fantastic. ive been looking at these for years and finally was able to get one. looks great and fits well- does sit alittle farther back in the withers than i would like but it doesnt seem to rub so its ok. leg straps are quality and stay in place when sheet is rolled in. over all i give it a A!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! This is a great fly sheet! It fits my horse perfectly, so the sizing is correct. I got it in the berry color. For those of you who are concerned about the berry color being to pink on a boy horse, I can assure you that it is mostly purple and not too girly. Hope this review helped! July 3, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very nice sheet My friend has one of these for her big TB cross hunter. The sheet fits him perfectly and seems to offer him good UV protection while still remaining cool. It's VERY durable, her sheet doesn't have one rip in it and she's had it for a few months. The only problem is it is a bit stiff because of the material it's made of and may rub on your horse if he's a bit bony. Overall though great product! June 2, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kensington protective fly sheet I already have two of these fly sheets for my older horses, they are going on their 5th year. They would be fine if one of my horses hadnt bit the sheet on my other, but I can still use it. I am getting one for my colt. They wear like iron, and I have tried others. Thanks. January 27, 2009

I have a new horse on its way and the owners told me size 75. He is 15.1. Should I go with 74 or 76? I'm thinking 76 might be big....
nicole F on Apr 10, 2014
Best Answer: Hi Nicole,
Congrats on your new horse. I think I would go with the 76. I love this fly sheet. It actually forms to your horse's sharp as he wears it, apparently from the heat of its body. I bought the matching fly mask too. Both are machine washable, very durable. I would purchase this product again in a heart beat!

How far down does the sheet cover the tail?
A shopper on Feb 23, 2015
Best Answer: The ones I have have a tail guard, so 5 inches or so. II have bought these sheets for years, without, they cover the base of the tail only.

Are they durable?
Are they hot, do horses sweat?
Are they true to size? my horse wears an 81 would I go up or down?
Bobbi R on Sep 3, 2013
Best Answer: Yes they are durable (so far, I've only had mine for a year) and not hot because the way the mesh is allows airflow. You can also wet the sheet if it gets too hot outside and it's a really good way to cool them down.
I'm not sure about the size because my horse wears an 84 and I can't remember I think they were out of that size so I got a size up and it's a little bit big but still works okay.
The only problem I had was that it rubbed on his withers. I'm not sure if it was because it was too big & didn't fit snug enough or not; I'm guessing that's probably what it was because the product comes with either fleece or padding for the withers.
I don't think going up or down one size either way would be any big issue. Also, I think it would depend on your horses withers (at least, that was the "problem area" for me). If your horse has higher withers, I think going down a size would work because you can just adjust the straps to be longer, and the snug-ness won't rub on the withers, or if they have flatter withers going up a size would give more breathing room (though it may be a tad looser it'll still work). I'm no expert, that's just my experience of this product.
Other than that, this product was overall good; it does it's job.
Plus it looks great! Especially if you have the matching fly mask with it :)
hope this helps :)

Just opened this fly sheet, and it only has one buckle under the belly, plus two rear leg straps. Seems unusual, is this right? Diana
A shopper on Jul 7, 2015
Best Answer: I liked this fly sheet very much and have found many fly sheets to have just one belly strap, especially when it is a wide one. However, it is very hot in our region in the summer and I returned the sheet, although it looked great, because the weave and weight were too heavy for the south. So, don't know that this helps, but the people at my barn that used them in the early spring really liked the sheet.

My horses are our in the pasture 24/7. My main concern is that there are no shoulder gussets, I feel that they allow more room in the shoulder area, i do not want them to get rubbed. I am wondering if anyone has ever had any chaffing or rubbing, due to not having the shoulder gussets?
Stephanie K on Mar 30, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Stephanie
I love the Kensington fly sheets. They wear like iron. I have not had any problem with rubbing the shoulders.
I might have have a little rubbing at the withers but that is about it. My horses wear their fly sheets 24/7 most of the time since they are both Paints. Helps to keep them cleaner.

Does this sheet attach to the Kensington Protective Neck Cover?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, the neck cover attaches to the sheet, though not to the fly mask. At least, that was the case with a set purchased last year.

We were suggested to buy the Kensington protective fly sheet in order to wear over our rain-sheet to protect it from rips is that correct?
Nathaly L on Nov 24, 2014
Best Answer: I would think the rainsheet would and should hold up on its own. I would not add the fly shhet over it. The fly sheet is lawn chair material; super durable but holds water in between the fibers. No rain sheet needs that challenge! I love the fly sheet and have two year use from a very destructive, big mare who lives outside 24/7. Her coat stays great and the sheet outlasts all others.

Can I wash this sheet in the washing machine?
Carin O on Sep 8, 2015
Best Answer: I have washed the fly mask by hand several times so I believe you could wash the fly sheet in a wahing machine on gentle. If it has a lot of mud I would spray it first with a hose and then put it in the washing maching. Myh horse rolls a lot with his fly mask and gets it caked with mud so I just sprayed it first to loosen the mud and then washed it gently. i hope this helps

What is the difference between the Kensington and the European fly sheet? The European claims belly protection, but it does not show.
Jerome C on Jul 4, 2015
Best Answer: We bought the kensington protective fly sheet. It has leg straps and 2 straps that cross under belly( this is what is says under european) I don't know what the difference is but this sheet holds up very well. It is kinda stiff. We are going into to 3rd season of use and it is in excellent shape.We went thru 2 other sheets and they ended up in shreds.Our horse does not seem to sweat anymore with it on possibly less.It seems to dry quickly too if it gets wet.Very durable.I would recommend. I thought that european was a different cut.
