Product Review: WeatherBeeta ComFiTec Premier Trio Detach-A-Neck Medium Turnout
Five-star event rider, Jo Rimmer, teamed up with Horse & Rider Magazine to test a variety of medium weight turnout rugs.
The ComFiTec Premier Trio received a 10/10 rating!
On first impressions, Jo said “This rug looked really modern in shape and style, and it had a smart, attractive pattern. It also looked hard-wearing and of good quality.”
After a thorough testing of the rug out in the field, Jo told H&H “this rug performed really well — it was waterproof and breathable as the description suggested. Although this rug came up large in size, it didn’t rub. The fastenings were all easy to use and the neck was easy to attach. I particularly liked the detachable liner as well as the good shoulder gusset and easy fastenings. The big fit also worked well for my horses. I think it’s really good value for money, I would recommend this rug!”
So, what makes this rug so great?
The strong and durable 1200-denier triple-weave outer, has a waterproof, breathable repel shell coating. The rug offers 100g of polyfill and comes with a 210-denier 200g polyfill liner. Other features include shoulder gussets and traditional side gusset for natural movement, a single touch tape chest strap and touch tape tabs on the neck, trigger clips at the rear, plus memory foam wither relief that lifts the rug off the wither to reduce rubbing and provide added comfort. The rug also has a quick-clip front closure that offers maximum adjustability, elasticated, adjustable and removable leg straps for a secure and comfortable fit, reflective strips on the front each side and tail flap for added visibility, twin low cross surcingles, plus a large tail flap for additional protection. 300g and 100g liners are also available separately.
