The New Hurricane Turnout Rug
What’s so special?
The Turnout Rug Hurricane is a unique water blocking rug for in the field or paddock. The rug will guarantee a dry horse, even in the heaviest showers. Therefore, the rug is perfect to use for horses who are outside 24/7. The rug is very resistant to tearing or scraping and stays 100% waterproof without recoating it.
Fabrics & materials
For 100% wind- and waterproofness we used a PU coating. This coating is the same that’s used for the typical yellow fisherman jackets. The coating is applied to the outside of the rug and is therefore unique in the rug market. Thanks to the artificial rabbit skin on the inside of the rug, the rug is very soft on the skin and avoids rubbing marks. This lining also gives the horse a shiny coat and prevents a damp feeling under the rug. The hurricane rug features two classic brass finish stainless steel closures at the front, two surcingles and a plastic-covered bungee cord which is detachable.
Shape & Size
The texture of the artificial rabbit skin is so designed that it will always move back in place after rolling or laying down. The additional tail flap protects the horse’s tail against cold and wet weather. If you want extra protection, a separate neckpiece can be bought that matches the Hurricane rug. The neck comes in 0g or 150g and is easily detached to the rug with 2 strong hook and loop closures. The neckpiece is a bit longer on the wither part, so you don’t have to worry about rain seeping in.
To clean the Turnout Rug, you can machine wash the rug at 30 degrees or simply hose down/sponge the rug. It’s best to let the rug air-dry afterward. Unlike other waterproof rugs, this rug does not need a fluor carbon treatment as washing does not harm the waterproofness of this rug.
