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 


rambo Supreme vari layer  warm middle weight turnout rugThe 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  


the amigo bravo 12 plus medium weight rug 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 .

   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 

bridleway combo middleweight horse rug This Great Value Medium weight Turnout is our budget friendly rug and we have found it fits well and offers your horse great protection from the elements when they are turned out. It has a durable 600 denier ripstop outer with a 220g fill that will keep your horse warm as well as dry. The Ontario has deep shoulder gussets that will allow your horse freedom of movement with an integrated neck, although as with most of the budget rugs, does have buckle front fastenings which can be a benefit, but can also be fiddly .

What Is Vamoose Technology ? 

Vamoose is a powerful  and effective fabric treatment used & patented  by Horseware Ireland in a range of their equine fly rugs that helps to repel flies and insects as well as physically  block them from  landing on your horse or pony. The fabric used in these fly rugs  has been treated with Vamoose anti -insect technology  a synthesized form of Permethrin , a naturally  occurring  biocide  found  in the  Chrysanthemum flower. 

How Can A Horseware Vamoose Fly Rug Help  My Horse In Summer ?

Horseware have Made a range of  Fly Protection products  including fly rugs,  midge rugs and  fly masks that utilise  Vamoose  Insect Control Technology,   this is odorless and invisible, but has been proven to repel mosquitos, ants, ticks, flies, midges and chiggers. This treatment is long-lasting on the fabric and has been used for many years  successfully in the  production of mosquito  nets . 

By repelling these insects  a  vamoose fly rug creates a extra invisible barrier  that reduces insects and flies landing on the fly rug outer  where they can bite through or irritate  your horse while grazing in the summer  it's  essentially like having a built in fly spray  !
