I ordered the SmartPak Classic Fly Mask, based on its very reasonable price and the fact that it would cover Whisper’s ears. The mask is nicely designed – the fleece lining is soft, and the darts lift the mask up and well away from Whisper’s eyes. I’m impressed with the Velcro closure – it’s a large, double-sided patch which offers excellent strength. The fabric is light and easy to see through (yes, I checked) and the ear coverings are generously sized and use a soft mesh.
My only warning with this mask would be the fact that it runs small. I ordered the Horse size for Whisper, a 16-hand Thoroughbred, and the mask just fits her. If she were the slightest bit larger, I’d be returning the mask. Still, it’s an excellent value as long as you don’t have a large horse.
