We have had many different brands. This fly sheet stays put. No shifting. No leg straps. Keeps horses clean. We have never used it without the hood. No shoulder or hip rubs. The horse we are testing this on is 17h big boned. This will be his third summer wearing the same sheet. He is moderately hard on clothes. This sheet has snags from tree rubbing but no rips. It runs large. This horse wears an 80 in Rambo Supreme and an 82 in Dover International. He wears a 78 in this sheet. Love the baby blue instead of white. We are in hot humid Virginia. We will be ordering.
