Kool Coat Cotton Combo Spring/Summer Turnout Rug

Upon request, I have undertaken a review of the Kool Coat Cotton Combo Spring/Summer Turnout Rug. The first thing of note is this product appears to be more generous in size compared to the WeatherBeeta summer rug. Amira is normally a 6’6, however, in this rug the 6’6 was to big and came up over her ears, requiring a reduction in size to a 6’3. You will see from the photographs depicted that both Amira and Bailey have plenty of room to move. The rug features large shoulder gussets to assist with full range of movement and they now feature the touch tape for the tail bag attachment. The rugs have worn well, both horses have had these rugs on for around three weeks now, you will see that Amira’s has stood the test of time against Bailey pretty well with only one rip to the left hand side. I would like to see this rug incorporate the wither relief pad, to help reduce rubbing and pressure to the wither area. Overall, good rug, these are worn in conjunction with their winter rugs and we have not had any issues in relation to heat with both rugs on during the colder days and of night. Both rugs were purchased from Horseland Maitland for $99.99. I would highly recommend this rug to other users.

They feature:
Durable PVC chest strap
Made with a strong 270g polyester & cotton blend ripstop outer
Nylon lined shoulders to help prevent rubbing
Large shoulder gussets for greater range of natural movement
Large tail flap for greater protection from dust, insects and sun
Removable and adjustable webbing leg straps
Contrast trim – Amira’s is a burgundy trim – Bailey’s is a cream trim

Handy tip: We purchased the baby/toddler car seatbelt strap protectors from the baby section of Big W, they are the perfect size to cover the PVC chest strap and reduce rubbing to the chest area. We use these on any rug with the PVC chest strap, regardless of brand.
