Athletic outerwear for your Animals at Equivest
- By Staff Writers
HONEYBROOK, Pa.--The creators at Design Equine had become frustrated with the selection of current cold weather protection for horses and livestock.
The livestock garment, by request, became a large dog coat.
Mostly all selections on the market are imported and we felt there was a way to create American manufactured equine apparel with new design features.
We saw horses wearing “blankets”, with many straps to secure.
Why not offer athletic wear for your horse, providing a safer fit and a higher level of comfort.
Equivest was created.
The EQ100 offers 1000 denier outer layer.
The EQ40 is lighter weight 400 denier which can be quilted depending on color. Insulation layer in both garments is the higher weight 3M Thinsulate.
Design Equine also provides this design for warm weather fly / insect protection incorporating a longer hind end.
We selected Deniers as outer shells, with an insulation layer of 3M Company Thinsulate, to provide for more warmth at a lighter weight.
Inside denier liners are ripstop.
Center closure is neoprene, offering weather protecting fabric, for coverage of chest and abdominal areas.
Patent pending tail flaps offer more hind end coverage.
They lift and separate to keep garment cleaner at just the right moment.
Seams on garment are waterproofed with a fabric sealer for extra level of protection on non- quilted outer layer shells.
Winter garments are packaged in a reusable Denier carry bag.
This can be used for grooming supplies, etc. and eliminates the need to throw plastic packaging in landfill.
We are currently producing garments sized for Foals to Draft Horses.
In addition, a large size for your Labrador or shepherd and newborn calves / small livestock.
We can provide custom color and size selections with a five horse minimum order.
Our product line is sewn in Honey Brook, Pa.
Quilting of our fabrics for stable garments is completed in Kansas City, Mo.
