We Review 5 Of the Best Middleweight Turnout Rugs For Winter 0
As the colder weather rolls in most horses will need a medium weight turnout to help them stay warm and dry when turned out for grazing. With rugs to suit all purses, we have a great selection of winter rugs available in our Devon store and available online for your horse. Below we have listed 5 of our best selling medium weight horse rugs, starting with the most expensive, and finishing with our cheapest budget mediumweight turnout rug.
1) The Rambo Supreme Vari Layer £318.95
The Rambo Supreme Vari Layer Turnout Rug is the most expensive horse rug on our list but you definitely get what you pay for. Rambo Rugs are made to the highest spec and come packed with features to improve fit and safety. These are definitely the toughest i've come across. Made with a ballistic nylon outer that is far more durable than other rugs - are they barbwire proof ? No, but they can take a hell of a lot of abuse.
The Rambo Vari Layer plus has a detachable neck and uses Vari layer fill design to keep your horse warm in the winter. Made with thermobonded fill that offers lightweight warmth in multiple layers in the 250 turnout, it has maximum warmth over your horses back, where most heat is lost and this tapers to a 100g on the side, which allows the rug to 'wrap around ' and keep heat better trapped, as well as making the rug a lot lighter.
2) The Amigo Bravo 12 Plus Turnout Rug £127.95
Next up is the Amigo Bravo 12 Plus. This warm middle weight turnout rug also by Horseware is made from a durable 1200 denier outer with a warm and cosy 250g fill, with the ability to increase this by adding Horseware rug liners if needed, making this a versatile rug. A lot of horses only need a heavy weight rug for a brief time over winter, so instead of spending more money on another rug, and then having to store it etc, you can buy a cheaper liner and tailor the weight more to your horse .
The Bravo is a great mid priced rug that is a lot more durable than the cheaper 600d rugs, and has lots of other feature like a detachable neck, V front closure, 3 surcingles and leg arches .
3) The Amigo 600d Plus Medium Turnout £89.95
This medium weight turnout rug is exceptional value for money, and a great buy. You definitely get a lot of bang for your buck with this rug! It will keep your horse dry and warm, with a 200g fill rug and detachable neck. The rug outer is made from a tough ripstop 600 denier that has been manufactured in a way that makes it more durable that your standard 600d material. All in all this a great deal if you cant stretch to one of the more expensive tougher rugs - this a great choice .
4) The Storm X 200g Combi Rug £79.95
The Storm X Horse Rugs are new into us this season, and as well as being waterproof and breathable, they bring a little fun to your horses wardrobe this winter. They are available in different prints including this fun unicorn pattern. A good entry level rug the Storm X middleweight has an integrated neck which means that although it can be less versatile, some people find their horse gets less mane rub with these combo neck turnouts. The front closures are buckles and whilst some people prefer these for fit some people find them more fiddly and time consuming especially on cold winter mornings or nights.
5) Bridleway Ontario Medium Weight Turnout Combi £66.99
