The Kensington Protective Products team has been designing and manufacturing custom equine protective wear since 1959. The Kensington line was launched in 1987, providing horse wear of uncompromising quality and innovation. They are the only fully licensed fabricator of US made 1,000 by 2,000 denier ripstop TextileneR in the equine industry. At the heart of Kensington’s innovative and classically designed line is an American made fabric TextileneR. The exclusive construction of TextileneR fabric Kensington uses is the strongest material on the market today and the absolute best way to protect your horse.
The system not only shields your horse from biting insects, it also protects the coat from bleaching with 73% UV protection. It adds longer life to expensive horse clothing, is mildew resistant, fire retardant and cleans up easily. Kensington’s Textilene keeps coats shiny by massaging and drawing out natural oils, protecting your horse from cuts and rubs. Their patented mesh reduces dust and dirt on the coat, which helps shed out old and dead hair.
In 2010, Kensington is introducing the next generation in equine fly protection. The new Kensington Natural Look CatchMaskR combines the proven protection and durability of Kensington’s TextileneR fly masks with natural looking horse colors and the convenience of a built-in catch halter to create a revolutionary new product.
From the beginning Kensington has always believed in quality craftsmanship. Before coming to the market their fabrics go through a rigorous quality inspection at their Southern California headquarters. From tear tests, to exposure to heat, they examine all degrees of durability in order to ensure a quality product. Quality is the reason they stand behind their products for the lifetime that you own them. “Kensington Protective Products brings high quality and well-respected products.
