Fly sheets?

Can you recommend a really good fly sheet for under $120 or so? After recent vet bills I am in no mood to spend $180 on the one I really want.

$180? $120? Where are you getting them from and what are they made of? I don't use fly sheets but just a quick search online and found some for around $60

Rambo Protectors are around $180. And it's not even made of gold or anything!

The one you found looks pretty good, thank you :)

I have this one Upland Basic Turnout Fly Sheet | Dover Saddlery and its awesome! Under $50 and has benefits of the expensive ones, like UV protection. My Paint has white, really sensitive skin so he HAS to wear it or else he burns to a little pony crisp, poor guy lol. They were on sale for $30 not too long ago so maybe they will go back on sale too :)

I've repaired some of those inexpensive fly sheets. If I were going to buy one it would be made of textilene, like the heavy fly masks.
