Waterproof & Breathable Coating
WeatherBeeta turnout rugs outer fabric is 100% waterproof. The fabric is bonded with a waterproof and breathable membrane that provides a barrier with taped seams to lock the elements out. The membrane stops water droplets penetrating the rug and allows the horse’s natural sweat and excess moisture to escape and evaporate quickly, keeping them cool, dry and comfortable.
The breathable fabric allows internal sources of moisture to escape the fabric. This is determined by the difference in concentration of water vapour (or humidity) between the surface of the horse’s body and the air outside the rug, as well as the physical resistance of the rugs fabric layers. The humidity difference is determined by your horse's warmth and activity level, which drives sweating and the climate around them.
