Rambo Optimo Turnout System
The secret to the Optimo? Many fitting problems could be eliminated by having two different garments combined as one. The Rambo Optimo does just that. The Rambo Split originates at a crucial point of the horse's anatomy, the 6th vertebrae at the base of the neck. This allows the front and back of the blanket to move independently. The front of the blanket is free to pivot, extend, turn and float with the shoulder while the back of the blanket sits firmly in place.
Features of the Rambo Optimo Turnout System include:
- 100% waterproof and breathable
- Articulated Pivotal Dart System
- 1000D ballistic nylon outer shell
- Antibacterial/antistatic polyester lining
- Chest trigger clips fixed on an inward angle
- PVC coated elasticized tail cord replaces the usual fillet strap, making it easier to clean
- Removable surcingle straps make it easy to detach, clean, or replace and will break free in an emergency
- Wicking nature of the lining will conduct moisture away from the horse's body where it will then be absorbed by Horseware's unique AquaTrans coating
- Patented V-front closure system gives more freedom of movement
- Surefit neck design
- Patented leg arches which allow the rug to be wrapped deeper around the belly without causing restriction
- 3 surcingles
- Large tail flap
- Removable 150g neck cover included
- Rambo Optimo liner system - 400g liner included (100g, 200g, and 300g liners are available separately for purchase)
- Lifetime guarantee on stainless steel hardware
- Reflective strips for easy locating
- 3-year waterproofing guarantee when you register your blanket with Horseware
- Comes with a Bag-For-Life storage bag
- Please note that Optimo Turnouts do run larger than other Rambo turnouts and may be up to 6" larger than their stated size. We recommend ordering down at least one size for most horses.
Includes a "Bag for Life"
- Welded construction ensures "Bag for Life" will stand up to the elements
- Use for storing your blanket in the off season or as a gear bag
- Stash pocket on side
- Roll top closure for fast access
- Adjustable shoulder straps

Follow these easy steps to safely clean, waterproof and store your blankets for next year.
Step 1: If your blanket is caked with mud or really dirty, gently hose blanket off before washing.
Step 2: If your blanket has a lot of horse hair stuck in lining, you may want to vacuum as much hair as possible out (this is why we prefer smooth nylon lined blankets!)
Step 3: Wash in a FRONT Loader washing machine (do NOT use an agitator style washing machine - the agitator damages the fabric and can permanently ruin the fiber fill insulation).
- Use cold water
- Use the bulky item cycle if your machine has it
- Use the low spin speed cycle
- Use a detergent specially made to maintain waterproofing - we use and recommend Rambo Blanket Wash
Step 4: Hang your blankets on a fence to dry (do NOT put in dryer as it will ruin waterproofing and can damage the fabric).
Check for waterproofness and re-waterproof if necessary
Step 5. Once your blankets are clean and dry, now is a good time to see if they are still waterproof. Take a cup of water, and pour over blanket. Water should bead up and roll off, if not, it is time to re-waterproof.

Step 6 (Optional): Re-waterproof your turnouts. Trust us, do it now, so when it is 35 degrees and pouring next Fall and you need your blanket waterproof, you will be glad you didn't procrastinate! We like Dry Guys Waterproofing Spray (also comes in a concentrate). Spray your blanket evenly with the Dry Guys. Let it dry and do a second coat. One regular bottle does 2 blankets well.
Step 8. Store safely for next year. If you have the original blanket bag, you can use it or we also like using the Space Bags. If using a Space Bag, you may want to put the content details on an paper insert (easier to read then writing on bag). Be sure to store in a rodent free area - it would be a big bummer to find a hole chewed in your carefully cleaned and stored blanket!
Trust us, next winter pulling your fresh, clean, waterproof blanket out of its storage bag will be ALMOST as rewarding as buying a new one!
