Coming soon: Glacier Tek equine products

Glacier Tek has developed three revolutionary products for the equine community.

horse-blanket-400.jpgThese new products are designed to ensure the thermal comfort of both horse and rider. All three are powered by a patent-pending gelled form of PureTemp's biobased phase change material engineered to maintain a temperature of 64 degrees F. The PCM is contained in a nylon fabric that is soft to the touch, durable and easy to clean.

Horse comfort blanket: The blanket is designed to be used before or after a ride. It has two functions: cooling and calming. In hot conditions, the phase change material in the blanket absorbs heat from the horse, ensuring thermal comfort. And the blanket's weight -- about 45 pounds -- has a calming effect on many horses. The blanket's unique design targets areas that need cooling the most and allows for easy positioning on the horse. No buckles or straps are needed; a durable fabric covering holds the four-piece blanket in place. The comfort blanket is an effective way to keep your horse calm and comfortable on the trail, at the track or in a transport trailer.

Horse leg wrap: Our wraps fit comfortably around the horse's legs and are designed to help prevent injury, speed recovery and improve performance. The PCM-based gel inside maintains a safe and comfortable 64 degrees F. Ice-based wraps are uncomfortably cold and can damage tissue.

Glacier Tek is now testing prototypes of these products on tracks and trails in Minnesota.
