Ready For Anything
Kensington introduces two new turn-out
horse blanket collections.

Kensington Protective Products, Inc., a leading manufacturer of premium quality horse clothing and accessories based in Pomona, is pleased to announce a new collection of protective equine apparel for fall/winter 2013-2014.

The entire collection of All Around HD turnouts is offered in our European cut. The cut provides a seamless back, longer drop on the sides for greater protection and additional coverage at the withers for comfort. Using 1200 Denier rip stop outer shell makes the fabric extremely durable and tear resistant, allowing it to maintain high breathability. The highly breathable fabric aids in preventing condensation from body moisture, ensuring your horse stays dry and comfortable. The turnouts are 3000mm waterproof making them water resistant and rain proof also with windproof capabilities by cutting wind-chill through dead air pockets within the insulation. Other features are high shoulder gussets for maximum freedom of movement, rolled nylon at the withers for padding, tail cover and adjustable front buckle with keepers. 

Anthony Gatto, CEO and president of Kensington states, "After listening to our consumers we have developed a blanket that offers all the features of a high quality turnout at a reasonable price for all horse owners."

The All Around HD Collection will be available online or through Kensington's network of dealers and is backed by our exclusive Lifetime Guarantee.

Our new Platinum® Collection winter turnouts offer protection from mild to extreme winter conditions. This is a Kensington first, offering such a turnout with optional neck lines and such availability in variations of weight. The blanket is offered in Kensington's own innovative SureFit® design which has the ability to fit a variety of horses, ranging from narrow to broader, with neck options in standard and mid-neck.

"We can now truly be recognized as a national blanket company with the ability to offer protection for horses in all environments," says Anthony.

The features that make this possible are: using hallow fiberfill insulation for greater mildew resistance, with a loftier impression. The premier 1680 Denier Ballistic Nylon Lami-Cell® coated outer shell ensure that your horse will be provided with the best waterproofing, breathability and wind protection available.

Our CoolPlus® lining allows greater passage for body heat release by drawing heat away from the horse. The lining possesses moisture wicking properties that offer maximum absorption. Due to these properties that the turnouts possess, it's possible according to Anthony that, "Most blankets of the heavier weight need to be taken off in temperatures between 40°F and 50°F, whereas the Platinum Collection turnouts can be worn in temperatures into the 60°F's."

All turnouts come with Teflon® Fabric Protective coating ,which allows blankets to keep their vibrant color longer through fade and stain resistant technology. The Platinum Collection will be available online or through Kensington's network of dealers and is backed by our exclusive Lifetime Guarantee.
