Ok so I swear I already posted this but cannot find it anywhere. Probably forgot to press submit. So 2 things. I am definitely ordering a BoT blanket but what are your opinions between the mesh or the fleece. Also thinking of ordering something for the hard working man in my life. How do you guys like the t shirts or pants? Worth the purchase?

Depends on where you live. I bought the sheet as I live in Alberta, we don't get that hot for it to be uncomfortable in the summer, I waterproofed them so they work like rain sheets.

I had one mesh one and my horse destroyed it, the mesh would get hooked on everything and snag.

I have one fleece but find it is heavier then my sheets

 I have used the wrist wrap when my tendonitis flare up. It really helps! I have also just stolen on of my mare's quick wraps and have been wearing it myself to try to heal the bruise on my shin from rimming a barrel a few weeks ago. I have definitely noticed a difference and would not hesitate to buy more products....in fact I really want a dog blanket for my 14 year old lab mix who has been having a noticeable limp lately.

I sleep in one of their shirts and have the mesh sheet for my horse with back issues. Also have the gloves. I was a skeptic before buying my first piece of it. It really works!

I have the mesh sheet and it does wonders for my mares. I always put a cover blanket or sheet over it to keep it nice. I also have the back wrap, gloves, neck wrap and shirt for myself.  I have fibromyalgia and they really help my sore muscles and muscle spasms.  I have the saddle pad liner and "cured" a mare whose ribs kept spasming by putting them back in and then riding her in it.
I am sold on the products.  For your man, I would not hesitate to recommend a shirt.  My farrier wears one every day with all of the bending and pulling he gets.  I wear mine when riding and pull it down over my hips.

I also have the gloves.  I wear them under my mittens in the winter.  I do live where it is very cold.  I just purchased the hock wraps and used one on my knee the other night.

 I am a dealer, and can share with you some of the human testimonies I have gotten to experience and hear.

My mother has rhuematoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. Her biggest issue is her hands and feet. I bought her the gloves and socks. She LOVES them. Her hands are always stiff and cold, so she wears her gloves a lot and wouldn't go anywhere without them. She said the socks she had to work up to using, that if she wore them for a long period right off the bat her feet would hurt worse. But, now she loves them as well.

My best friend's mother has a bar from the base of the skull to between her shoulder blades, and always has a lot of pain. She also had stomach surgery and has pain there as well. She has a bed mattress, boxers, and a mini blanket. She swears by it all, says she doesn't have as much pain or mobility issues when she uses them. She also claims to sleep better, even took her mattress pad with her to Cali.

I own the pants, a long sleeve, a short sleeve, riding gloves, and soon a back brace. I have prevented myself from having to have shoulder surgery by wearing the shirts. I love the gloves during chore time, as I can still grab things, but, I stay warm.

Hope this helps!

 I sleep on the mini blanket every night.  I absolutely love it.  I've got scolosis and this has helped my back pain drastically.  I am actaully planning on purchasing the back brace to wear this year while riding to see if it helps with the pain there as well.  Also looking into getting the mesh sheet for my gelding and the mattress pad for my bed.

 I also have the human back brace which I love when my lower back issue flares up. I bought an elbow brace a few years ago when I had a case of tennis elbow. Huge relief. My husband was a non believer till he got tennis elbow and I convinced him to try my bot brace. Fixed him. My gelding stepped on the top of my foot last oct. then 2 days later I fell at work and sprained the same foot. It's been giving me grief ever since. Finally dawned on me one day to try BOT. Put sore no more horse liniment on my foot then my elbow brace and a regular sock and went to bed. 3 nights and foot was 90% better. Yep I'm a believer. Love the stuff.

I would recommend the mesh over the fleece.  The fleece is heavier and everything sticks to it.   

Yes, the human products are worth the money also, but I use my horse products on myself instead.   bought an extra pair of quick wraps and polos just for me.
