The Rambo Wug Vari-Layer Heavy Weight Turnout has been designed to offer more warmth with less weight than a traditional medium weight turnout blanket.

Vari-LayerTMtechnology works by concentrating on the areas of the body where the horse loses the most body heat, primarily the over the back and hips. By putting the majority of the fiberfill over these areas, the blanket is able to wrap more closely to the body and trap more body heat (an increase in thermal values of up to 30%) with less weight overall. The effect of gravity compression is also lessened, meaning the blanket stays fuller, longer and is therefore warmer.

Additional features of the Rambo Wug Vari-Layer Turnout include:

  • 1000D ballistic nylon outer shell
  • 450g of thermo-bonded fiberfill
  • Antibacterial, antistatic polyester lining
  • Tail Flap
  • Reflective Strips
  • Wipe clean tail cord
  • Patented V-front closure system
  • Leg Arches
  • High neck design for extra coverage
  • Not compatible with the Horseware liner system

    What makes the waterproofing of a Rambo Turnout so much better?

    Aquatrans Technology

    Rambo Turnouts have two layers of fabric. The inner layer is Hydrophillic, which means "water loving", and this layer draws sweat and moisture away from the horse's body to prevent moisture buildup under the blanket. The outer layer is Hydrophobic, which means "water hating", and this layer drives the water vapor out through the fabric and away from the outside of the turnout. This means that water travels through the turnout from the inside to the outside only, so moisture won't stay under the turnout and can't sink in from the outside. This ability of the fabric to move moisture through and away is referred to as "Breathability". For those who want to get really technical, all Horseware turnouts (Rambo, Rhino and Amigo brand) are waterproof to 3000mm and breathable to 3000g which means that 3000g of water vapor can be released in a 24hr period from under your turnout.

    Some may be concerned that the heavier denier of the Rambo Turnouts may make them less breathable, but fortunately this is not the case. Thanks to the high breathability of the AquaTrans coating, Rambo turnouts can have a high denier, durable shell with a high degree of waterproofing without sacrificing your horse's comfort.

    Your Rambo Turnout is guaranteed to remain waterproof for three years with proper care and storage. Always use a natural, non-biological cleaner specially formulated to clean horse turnouts and fabrics with waterproof coatings. If you are washing your rug yourself, Horseware recommends using a soft brush to remove any excess dirt, then gently cleaning the turnout with cold water from a normal garden hose and Rambo Blanket wash. Rinse the blanket and hang to dry (don't ever dry it in the dryer). You should not use water warmer than 86 degrees or use a pressure washer as both can damage the waterproof membrane. Once your turnout is clean and completely dry, fold it neatly into a breathable storage bag and store in a cool, dry area. Moisture and excessive heat can damage the fabric's waterproofing.

    To take advantage of the three year waterproof guarantee, please be sure to register your blanket upon receipt. There is a hang tag on the front of the turnout with instructions.

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).

Do NOT Use Agitator Style Washer
Agitators can damage the outer shell of your blanket and compromise the fiber fill distribution. Blanket manufacturers will not honor warranty claims if blanket is washed in an agitator style machine.

Use a Front Loading Machine
If your front loading machine has a bulky cycle, use it. We recommend cold water and a low spin speed.

Hang Blankets on Fence to Dry
Do NOT put your turnout blankets in a dryer. The heat ruins the waterproofing and can damage the outer shell.

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.

Passed Waterproofing Test

We treated this old turnout with Dry Guys Waterproofing.

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 7 (Optional): If your blanket has any nicks or tears, you can repair them easily using Rambo Stormsure and Rambo Rug Repair Kit. You can also replace leg straps and tail cords if they are worn.

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!
