Amigo Evolution Rug Disc Front Closure Aqua and Orange

In our development of the new Evolution Fly Sheet in aqua/orange, we carried out extensive research to support our use of this colour combination. Most insects have what are known as ‘compound eyes’, which restrict their ability to see certain colours.

In fact, research has shown that certain insects are not attracted to yellow, aqua or orange as these all register low on their UV spectrum. Most insects can, however, see Ultraviolet lights very clearly. UV pigments in flowers, as opposed to vibrant colours, are what attract insects. You may notice that flies are attracted to certain colours, such as your brightly coloured jacket or car, but the chances are that this object is reflecting light in a way that is attractive to these insects.

We used this research in the development of the Evolution Fly Sheet by choosing colours containing no UV pigments that are known to be difficult for insects to identify. The pattern we use breaks up the shape of the horse, so insects struggle to identify it as a target and cannot figure out where to land, essentially camouflaging the horse against a wide range of pesky flies and bugs.

Fabric

Two fabric layers for maximum air circulation.

Body layer made from soft, absorbent and strong knitted polyester net.

Upper lightweight mesh layer on top and lower side of the rug is treated with our Vamoose technology.

Super lightweight fabrics for maximum breathability.

Sun reflecting properties.

Features

Disc-front closure with Surefit neck design.

Seamless design with integrated neck cover.

Leg arches.

Three straight surcingles and belly flap with velcro closures for full belly coverage.

Silky mane and shoulder lining to prevent rubbing.

Supersized tail flap with silky lining and wipe clean tail cord.

Colours

Insects respond differently to different colours. Interestingly, most insects cannot perceive the colour orange or aqua, because their vision centres on different sections of the electromagnetic spectrum. This is a natural deterrent in itself. Our colour technology, paired with our Vamoose technology is at the forefront of equine repellent technology. In addition to both of these features we have combined our first Vamoose front closure system (35grm) to create a super lightweight, high tech product.
