We tested the Standard Version in a FULL size for our Quarter Horse, Toby. It was VERY easy to fit, and fit well. We did not see any rub marks while in use, around 12 hours per day for almost 30 days while he had his sutures in place from a laceration repair. It is constructed of a heavy-duty EVA lining and mesh that has held up 100% – this is the first fly mask that has endured ZERO rips or tears. It is built with a patent pending design using three strategically placed “darts” across the forehead to keep the vizor from collapsing into the horses eyes. It also provides up to 95% UV protection while in use.
The quick release clip system is one I have NEVER seen before, and it WORKS. There is the typical chin Velcro closure, but Protective Pet Solutions took it a step further! It also is equipped with an adjustable crown strap (which is AMAZING) as well as a throat latch strap. This system has prevented the other horses from ripping the mask off in their games of tag more times than I can count, but it is also SAFE.
We all know the horses we love are accident prone creatures, and mine are no different! Toby came in with the throat latch buckle snapped one evening, and I can only guess what caused it. While a little irritated I was HAPPY. This proved that Protective Pet Solutions was aware of SAFETY – the buckle snapped like it should, which most likely saved us from a very bad situation and further injury. (The replacement buckles are available for purchase on the Protective Pet Solutions ) I love that they stand behind their products and offer “replacement” parts! We were very impressed with this product, and I will be using it for seasons to come!
