I have this fly sheet and I love it!! Unlike most fly sheets it does not make my horse sweat. I've never brought him in from the pasture being sweaty when he has his fly sheet on. It's white (therefore does not attract sunlight like his bay coat) and is extremely breathable. Also, besides running and stomping because of the flies he is more comfortablef and is able to stand still without being eaten alive. Like you said another plus is that it helps keep him clean, too, which is extremely nice! However, I have heard that they changed the material in their fly sheets to one that is not as durable. I bought mine a few years ago so I don't know if this is true or not.
