Edited Press Release
As cold weather approaches and horse owners begin thinking about the upcoming blanketing season, Horseware Ireland® is offering two new turnout solutions within the Rambo® collection.
This year’s Rambo® revamp included upgrading the best-selling Supreme line with 1680D Ballistic Nylon, a unique fabric that’s 120% stronger than the standard 1000D Ballistic Nylon. The turnout is layered with an outer 1680D Ballistic Nylon fabric, a waterproof coating, a thermobonded fibrefill that’s made from 80% recycled material, and an embossed polyester lining that is anti-bacterial and anti-static with shine enhancing properties to maintain a healthy coat all winter long. Coming in a variety of weights, the reinvented Supreme range is perfect for those horses that are hard on their blankets or the “rug rippers” we especially designed for.
Horseware Ireland® also introduces the newest turnout design, the Rambo® Duo Force. The Duo Force features another new fabric for Horseware, the 1000D Ripstop Ballistic Nylon. This fabric uses reinforced weaving making it 60% stronger and 50% lighter than 1000D Ballistic Nylon. The blanket includes features synonymous with the Rambo® line such as a v-front closure & Surefit neck design to eliminate pressure on the shoulders, dual leg arches for freedom of movement with maximum belly coverage, and the 3-surcingle safety clip system. Included with the 100g outer is a 100g and 300g liner to provide versatile blanketing options for changing climates.
Product Innovation Manager, Clare Silke, commented, “As part of this revamp, we are levelling up in our fabric offering with two new additions to the Rambo turnout range. Our best-selling Rambo Supremes will now be offered a 1680D Ballistic Nylon outer offering a new level of unparalleled strength.
The Rambo Duo Force harnesses a uniquely developed ballistic nylon ripstop outer that was developed specially for this Rambo Revamp. This unique outer elevated our standard 1000D Ballistic nylon to a next tier of strength and protection without increasing the overall weight of the outer fabric. Sold with two liner options, the Duo Force is design to take you through Autumn, the depths of winter and through to the warmer spring season with three weight options available from one rug. This is a personal favourite from this revamp range and what I will be using on my horses this AW’21 season.”
