Waterproof & Breathable Fabric
Bucas Turnout rugs are made with waterproof and breathable fabric. In order to retain the waterproof and breathable properties of this fabric, it is essential that the washing instructions be adhered to. Please note that water may find its way inside the rug from around the edges and stitching. In most conditions this will be very limited but during heavy rainfall a considerable amount of water may run down the neck and inside the rug.
Bucas waterproof and breathable fabrics have an additional Teflon® water repellent outer finish, which protects the fabric and stops the outer fabric from absorbing water. This outer finish is subject to considerable weathering and wear and is also affected by washing. To restore the water-repellent property of the fabric, apply Bucas Rug Conditioner.
General Rug Care & Use
For best performance ensure that the rug is the right size for your horse. When not in use store rugs in a dry place with good ventilation.
