With winter already knocking on some of your doors, Kensington Protective Products, Inc., a leading manufacturer of premium quality horse clothing and accessories, would like to remind you that our Roustabout Collection of turnouts has been retired, and replaced by our brand new Platinum Collection.
Kensington has offered the Roustabout Collection for the last 12 years, since 2002. In 2013 we announced the Platinum Collection, but as of 2014 we have decided not to continue with Roustabout.
Kensington’s NEW Platinum Collection winter turnouts offer protection from mild to the most extreme weather conditions. The blanket is offered in Kensington’s own, innovative SureFit design which has the ability to fit a variety horses ranging from narrow to broad and is available in: standard turnout, mid-neck turnout or a turnout/neck warmer combo. Anthony Gatto, CEO and President of Kensington stated, “We can now truly be recognized as a national blanket company with the ability to offer protection for horses in all environments.”
The features that make this possible are:
- Hollow fiberfill insulation, giving it greater mildew resistance, with a loftier impression.
- 1680 Denier Ballistic Nylon Lami-Cell® coated outer shell, ensuring that the blanket will provide your animal with the best waterproofing, breathability, and wind protection available on the market.
- 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 the properties that these turnouts possess it is possible, according to Gatto, 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 up into the 60°F [range].”
Other features found only in our Platinum Collection are: Adjustable Snap-front chest buckles, fully removable/replaceable belly, fully removable/replaceable leg straps, Velcro adjustable belly band and removable tail-flap.
All turnouts come with Teflon Fabric Protective coating which allows blankets to keep their vibrant color longer through fade and stain resistant technology. New color options for the turnouts include: Raspberry, Onyx, Teal, and Blue Violet. Turnouts are available in 4 weight options: Rain Sheet, 80G- Light weight, 180G- Medium Weight, 300G- Heavy weight. The Platinum Collection turnouts MSRP range from $249.99-419.99, depending on the weight and style. The Platinum® Collection is available online or through Kensington’s network of dealers and is backed by our exclusive Lifetime Guarantee.
Please Note: Kensington also has the 1200 Denier All Around Collection which provides the customer with a high quality turnout at a more “Economical” price.
