Be prepared for whatever the weather throws at you with our pick of the best lightweight turnouts to protect your horse this autumn.
StormX Original 100 Combi Turnout Rug
Sizes: 4ft 6in-7ft
A good choice for cooler days when a heavier weight rug is too warm.
This rug features 600 denier waterproof outer fabric and an integral contoured neck with twin touch-tape fastenings, plus buckle chest straps for the perfect fit for each horse.
Adjustable cross surcingles and adjustable leg straps ensure a secure fit, with a tail flap providing extra protection from the elements.
Bucas Green Line 100g Turnout
All fabrics — outer, insulation, lining, straps and binding — used in this rug are made using recycled fibres.
This turnout comes with all the great features you would expect from Bucas: a 600 denier ripstop outer made from recycled plastic bottles, silk-feel lining made from recycled materials and the Bucas insulation that has been manufactured using recycled fibres for a number of years.
It is available with 100g or 300g insulation. A T-bar front closure with Snap-lock magnetic fastening and shoulder darts ensure a great fit, and there’s the option of a separate combi neck.
Swish Equestrian Lightweight Turnout Rug With Detachable Neck
Colours: Pink, green, orange, peppermint
Sizes: 4ft 6in-7ft 6in
A no-fill turnout rug made from a waterproof and breathable 1,200 denier outer, with a detachable neck.
The no-fill turnout is showerproof, though in long periods of heavy, constant rain a build-up of condensation on the inside of the rug may cause damp patches.
This rug has liner attachments so Swish rug liners can be added to increase the warmth of the rug as needed. It has reflective strips on the front, rear and tail flap, plus large shoulder gussets, cross surcingles, a tail flap and removable/elasticated leg straps.
It sits higher on the neck/shoulders compared to some rugs in order to prevent it from slipping back and rubbing.
Tempest Original Lite Turnout Rug
Colours: Navy/grey, blue nebula, horse print, purple lightning
Ideal for warmer wet weather, this turnout rug is deep cut and features a lightweight but durable 600 denier ripstop outer.
The rug is waterproof and breathable, and the ShireTex durable water-repellent finish outer offers sustainable weather protection without the use of environmentally harmful PFCs.
This rug is WarmaRug compatible so you can upgrade the warmth rating using separate rug liners in 100g or 200g (available to buy separately).
It has adjustable buckle chest straps, adjustable cross surcingles plus a fillet strap and a tail flap, and is fully lined.
DefenceX System 0 Turnout Rug With Detachable Neck Cover
Made from a durable and waterproof 1,200 denier material with no fill, this lightweight turnout rug is ideal for when the weather is slightly warm but still wet.
This rug has adjustable cross surcingles, twin-clip chest fastenings and leg straps to keep it securely in place.
It features a specially shaped tail flap to provide ultimate coverage, a detachable neck cover for versatility, and reflective areas for optimum visibility.
Rambo Duo Force
Colour: Navy/ navy/white
Sizes: 5ft-7ft 3in
The 1,000 denier ripstop ballistic nylon outer material includes an innovative ripstop weave for greater strength.
This new fabric construction offers lightweight but strong protection from the elements. Treated with Horseware’s Aquatrans technology, this turnout is waterproof and breathable.
Horseware guarantees the Rambo Duo Force will remain waterproof and breathable for a minimum of three years.
An antibacterial, anti-static and shine-enhancing polyester lining ensures a shiny coat and healthy skin, while a 100g thermobonded fibrefill offers superior heat retention.
The V-front closure and Surefit neck design eliminate pressure on the shoulder so it doesn’t rub, for more comfort while your horse is grazing. Dual leg arches offer freedom of movement and maximum belly coverage.
The three surcingle safety clip system can withstand 100kg of pressure, but breaks in the event of an emergency.
There are 100g and 300g liners included which can be attached to the liner loops, making this the ultimate year-round turnout.
Other features include a removable hood and a wipe-clean elasticated tail cord.

Fully waterproof and breathable, it is designed to sit higher on the neck and shoulders to prevent it from slipping back and rubbing.

A large tri-vent shoulder gusset allows free movement and prevents shoulder rub.
An anti-rub lining promotes a clean and shiny coat, plus memory foam sections at the wither relieve and distribute pressure evenly.
