Fly Sheet Brand for TB in Playful Pasture

Hi, I am looking for recommendations on brands/lines of fly sheets for my high-withered TB gelding. He is at the bottom of the pecking order in the gelding pasture and gets picked on quite a bit. I need a fly sheet to withstand biting, etc. and also rolling around (he rolls a lot). I need to pay particular attention to his high withers as I do not want them to be rubbed. I was looking into Kennsington fly sheets, very durable but some say they rub the shoulders since its such a stiff material. Also, my gelding will be turned out 24/7 in the fly sheet, so breathability is key too. Not so concerned with bleaching as he is bay and I don't show competitively.

As a side note, I am from Canada, so cannot always order from some american sites.

So recommendations for a durable fly sheet for a TB that I can get in Canada. Anyone have luck with Greenhawk fly sheets?

Check out I'm not sure how Greenhawk's stuff is. So far my Schneiders blankets have been standing up wonderfully. I haven't ordered my fly sheet yet, so no word on how they are.

Yep go to sstack. they have blankets specially made for high-withered horses. I have the Marathon midweight turnout and it fits my high-withered TB perfectly. It's on it's 3rd season and looks new when I wash it, Schneiders makes quality blankets. Check this one out:

That's the one I'm planning on getting this year, never had one before but the reviews say they are durable. They also have the same one with a bellyband, and you can purchase matching neck cover, fly mask, and fly boots if you want.
