Hi Glenda:  I'm not in the SE, but I can't imagine there being anything 
else you could use for a fly sheet that would be cooler than one of 
those.  It's not humid here, but it does get above 100 degrees from time to 
time, and often in the 90's and the horse seems to be very comfortable with 
the fly sheet (and hood) on.  It's the same type of fabric as the fly masks 
are made out of so it allows for plenty of airflow.
