About Kensington Platinum rugs
Kensington is a family owned, well-established U.S. market leader in horse clothing. They utilise quality materials and manufacturing for a long-lasting product, as well as designs that ensure comfort for the horse. The Platinum series is their latest model, developed with the aim of creating the best rug available on the market.
What makes them special
- 1680 denier ballistic nylon shell: Originally developed for flak jackets, this is one of the strongest materials available for horse rugs,
- Lami-cell® and Teflon coating: The ballistic nylon shell is combined with Lamicell to provide 100% waterproofing and wind protection with high breathability. A Teflon coating provides fade and stain resistance
- CoolPlus lining system: this special inner liner is designed to draw away heat and wick away moisture when needed, preventing damp chill and allowing the rug to remain comfortable at higher temperatures
- Hollow-fill insulation: The special super-effective hollow-fill insulation combines high breathability with a lot more warmth per gram of weight, providing a lighter and easier-to-handle rug
- Robust construction: The strength of the ballistic nylon is complemented by top-level manufacturing specifications: double-seaming with very strong thread, wide velcro attachments, and solid, no-rust metal fittings
- Surefit cut: Kensington's new Surefit rug cut is designed to fit a wide range of horse shapes, and to minimise rubbing problems. The cut incorporates a detachable belly flap, detachable criss-cross leg straps and an adjustable front with snaps for easy on and off
- Lifetime replacement Guarantee: Such is Kensington's confidence in the robustness and longevity of their products that they offer a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee. More details here
The Platinum range includes two weights of rug, medium and heavy-weight, plus a neck warmer for the heavy-weight rug. A medium-weight neck warmer is in development.
