Rated 4 out of 5 by BadWolf Very Durable
I bought this almost a year ago for my 15.2 thoroughbred gelding. It caught my eye because it was plum colored and plum happens to be my horse's color. As is true for most Saxon blankets, the sides are not as long as I would like. Hint: If you have a very tall and/or big-bellied horse, I would probably choose a Weatherbeeta. I do like that the waterproofing has held up well and that the inside of the tail flap is coated with teflon, making manure very easy to brush off. Overall a good buy for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jessy Great sheet!
Bought this for the in between seasons we have here; to keep them dry when needed or clean. This sheet has yet to disappoint me and is living up to all of our standards.
I would like to see Saxon lengthen the sheets so they drop a bit more below the belly. Its not too short though and these sheets fit both my TB and QH.
Can't wait to get my heavier blankets by Saxon :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mom4Boyz LOVE THIS SHEET!
I bought two of these to replace sheets for both my horses. I LOVE THEM! My horses stay dry and comfortably warm with these sheets. My QH is very tough on his sheets/blankets and this one holds up even against everything he throws at it. My TB has very long legs, so he looks as though he's wearing a "mini-skirt", but otherwise the sheet is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chava Works perfectly
I bought this for my Haflinger gelding. In the winter my horse has an extremly heavy layer of fur. It rains a lot here, and is rarely below freezing. I had been looking for a rain coat for months but could not find anything that was sturdy enough and was without padding or insulation. I bought this and have been very pleased. The quality is great. He measured 74, but I got a 78 because he is so broad chested. I would definately recommend this product.

My horse "measures" 74" but the 81" sheet fits great on the second-to-tightest buckling! He's a 25 yo massive bulldog type horse. He isn't choked at the neck; all parts of the sheet stay put. This is my second Saxon, & I'll continue to buy this product. He doesn't even complain about wearing "old lady purple."

Rated 1 out of 5 by Saxon 1200D Turnout Sheet poor product
I've used blankets for years and never have I had such a poor blanket its not even 2 months old and has several tears in it. Its like the material is very old. Now I know why it was on sale!!!

I have a 14h palomino and this sheet is awesome and it looks great against his coloring. I use it to keep him warm at night when it gets below 40. Not thick at all, but don't need it to be in SoCal. Fit's him great, not too short, but he's kinda little.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dickerson NOT WATERPROOF
Definitely not waterproof. My horse was soaked both times we used it. I had to put on her thicker blanket just to dry her off. Durability is fine, but wouldn't use to keep a horse warm and dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alexa Fabulous Sheet: great value for the price!
I love this sheet. The plaid color is really very attractive and doesn't show stains. The fabric is very substantial and sturdy. It does look a bit like a mini-skirt on my 17 hh Warmblood. But all Saxon's are a little short on the sides, especially if your horse has a hay belly. Someone asked about velcro, there is no velcro on this sheet. (But would be a great addition) This is not a heavy blanket, it has no fill, so don't buy it for warmth. It's a great waterproof windbreaker for windy, rainy early fall and late spring days or as a light blanket for nippier nights/trailering. I also layer this overtop of a non waterproof stable blanket for turn out at times. Can't beat the price when other name brand sheets are twice as much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sue Best Turnout Blanket For The Price
I have tried many brands, even much more expensive, over the years, but I am never disappointed by the quality, fit and durability of the the Saxon 1200 denier waterproof turnout blanket. I run a horse rescue, and every horse in my barn has one of these blankets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CMM Compares to pricey blankets
I got the medium turnout blanket. Used it all last winter pretty much 24/7. No rips, tears, all hardware stayed in tact and the horse stayed dry. My horse size is an 84 and I ordered an 84. Fits perfect front to back. The only complaint I have is that it seems a bit short around the belly. But still kept her comfortable in extreme weather. Skinny or lean horses probably will be fine. Fat horses will just have a bit of air down the center of their bellies. Absolutely worth it for the price.

I was unhappy with this blanket. Ripped the first year at the gusset area. I've had a blanket in the past that latest years !

Rated 5 out of 5 by ANR Excellent blanket!!
I bought this blanket about 3 years ago and the only issue I've had is the SAXON label has been half pulled off. I don't want to say ripped b/c the fabric didn't tear! I think they run a little big- I bought an 80" and it's a touch large. But over all- I love this blanket!!

The works good on my horse. I've had it on her and she seems comfortable in it! She's rolled in it and other than getting dirty nothing has happened to it yet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by question Not Durable
This blanket is just not durable! It ripped after having it on for 2 days! We put repair patches on it, but after about 3 months, it has at least 7 holes in it and new ones are gradually forming. Both leg straps broke after 1 washing, and the front nylon straps are very worn and frayed. i've only had it for one winter.... i doubt that it will last another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hannah Awesome- a must have!!!!!
I have a thoroughbred with really thin skin and this blanket left no rub spots on her, and it was pouring rain today and she was dry and warm still! Only thing is she has a tough time lifting her tail in it. Its cute and is a great turnout.

Loved this sheet from the moment it arrived. Aside from being visually appealing, the 1200D seems to be holding up to 24/7 outside wear. Fits true to size, love the criss-cross surcingles and fleece withers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Standardbred Excellent
I bought this blanket with some fill in it for an all around blanket for california weather. My horse is really tough on blankets and the gelding he lives with loves to chew up anything I put on him. For the price, I was hoping this blanket would hold up for at least a few months, but I was very pleasantly surprised. For the price, this has been a great blanket that holds up to my goofy gelding. He wore it almost every day this season, no rips or tears, no rubs or bald spots, and it doesn't even shift and stays in place great. This is better quality for the price than many other blankets I have tried, I would definitely buy this brand again.
