Death of a Flysheet

Pete finally ripped his flysheet beyond repair. I'm not complaining - it was only $35 and he wore it 10 hours a day all last season and a month this one. I more than got my money worth. I went back to my local tack shop, but they don't have any and don't know if they are going to get any in. I started searching online, but the ones I found are either beyond my budget for a flysheet or white. Pete loves to roll and I refuse to buy a white flysheet that will be brown in about 5 minutes or less. So, does anyone have any brands or suggestions about a good quality flysheet that will stand up to turnout but won't cost a small fortune?? Thanks!

don't know what size your boy is but GATSBY Soft Mesh Scrim Sheet with Belly Strap Fly Sheets Blankets and Sheets

not a bad price, I don't know what the quality is like but, for that amount I'd be happy if I got one summer out of it. With Ab, I'm happy if he still has his sheet on. not trampled, ripped off, torn and destroyed. He only gets the cheap ones now. really cheap ones.

I should buy some and put on the product tester..... I'll let you know in 2 weeks if they live or die.

Thanks BC! That is cheap!! I would happily buy multiple to get me through a season with that price and the colors are great :) unfortunately he needs an 80 :( I'll keep my eye out on that website though to see if more options come available.
