How do the Thermatex® WickAway rugs work?

We use the innovative Thermatex® fabric in our WickAway rugs for a very specific reason. Thermatex® is a high-tech, breathable fabric that is designed to provide superior insulation and moisture-wicking properties. The fabric is made from a blend of synthetic fibres, including polyester and polypropylene, which are woven together to create a lightweight, yet durable material.

One of the key benefits of Thermatex

® fabric is its ability to regulate body temperature. The fabric is designed to trap heat close to the body, while also allowing moisture to escape. This helps to keep the horse warm and dry, even in cold and wet conditions.


® fabric is also highly breathable, which helps to prevent overheating and sweating. This is particularly important for horses that are prone to sweating, as excessive sweating can lead to dehydration and other health problems.

In addition to its insulation and moisture-wicking properties, Thermatex

® fabric is also very lightweight and flexible. This makes it ideal for use in horse rugs, such as our WickAway rugs for both dogs and horses, as it allows for a comfortable and secure fit without restricting movement.


® fabric is used in a variety of different types of horse rugs, including stable rugs, turnout rugs, and cooler rugs. It is also used in other equestrian products, such as saddle pads and leg wraps.

Overall, Thermatex

® fabric is a high-quality, high-performance material that is well-suited for use in horse rugs. Its ability to regulate body temperature, wick away moisture, and provide a comfortable fit make it a popular choice among horse owners and riders alike.

We recommend layering our WickAway rug under a No Fill rug to counteract the sweating/condensation that occurs when moisture is trapped against the skin.
