Rambo Blankets

​Why should you buy a Rambo Blanket?

Rambo blankets are designed to last. They are one of the strongest, most durable blankets that you can buy. They hold their waterproofing well and maintain their quality. Your horse will thank you.

Rambo rugs to this day are still made in the original factory in Ireland. Horseware has so much pride in this line of blankets, they even come with a 3-year warranty.

All Rambo blankets are made with the strongest, most durable turnout material on the market, 1000D Ballistic Nylon. Proven to stand up to the test of time, it isn’t uncommon to see horses wearing 20-year-old Rambo blankets that are still in excellent condition. These blankets are lined with an anti-static and anti- bacterial lining and Thermobonded fiberfill. All Rambo blankets come with reflective strop and a wipe clean tail cord as standard.

Exclusive Rambo Features

 

V-Front Closure on Rambo Blankets Summerside Tack

V-Front Closure

All Rambo blankets, with the expectation of the true Rambo Original, feature the patented V-Front closure with a Surefit Neck design. The V-Front Closure is unique because it is designed to lie in the groove of the shoulder, so when the horse raises it shoulder it lifts the blanket up, but still low enough to allows the horse to graze. The point of the shoulder lines in between the straps of the blanket buckles, that way the pressure does not lie directly on the shoulders. If there is too much pressure on the shoulders there will be rubbing, the v-front closure helps to relieve this. It is key to make sure that the buckles point towards the horse, so that the horse cannot get caught on anything.

 

 

Safety Surcingle Feature on Rambo Blankets with Summerside Tack

Safety Surcingle

Exclusively in the Rambo blanket line is the Safety Surcingle System. This allows for the straps to break in case of an emergency, without causing damage to the blanket. This works with a double-sided Velcro breakaway on one side of the blanket. It is also a great system to remove your surcingle for washing your blanket to help reduce damage to your washing machine.

All Rambo Blankets come with 3 secure surcingles. These surcingles should be adjusted so they are only 4” below the belly of the horse. This ensure that blanket will stay in place.

 

 

 

 

Vari-Layer Technology

The Vari-Layer design is to have more warmth with less weight. This feature is only available in the Rambo line of blankets. By studying horse’s natural heat loss, Horseware understands that most of the heat loss in a standard blanket occurs over the back and hips. The Vari-Layer design focuses most of the weight of this blanket over the back and hips, then allowing it to layer down the edge of the blanket. This allows for the maximum heat with the minimum amount of weight.

For owners, riders, grooms and barn owners this means less physical weight for you to be lifting on and off your horse’s back. Which translate to less weight for your horse to be wearing.
