Best fly leg wraps?

So my dear girl apparently has really bad reactions to flies. I think the best bet would be to get some of those fly leg wraps, but which ones? There's so many options and I am not sure what is best. She is a smaller Arab so maybe something with different size options. I do not care what they look like I just want them to work. I would prefer to stay on the cheap side as I do not know how she is with destroying things yet, more concerned about the other horses taking them off for her.

My local feed store carries the Roma brand and the Cashel ones but the Cashel are twice the price of the Roma's. I can order online as well doesn't bother me.

So opinions on what's best and what to stay away from please?

I've seen a few of the cheaper ones and they slid down in a heap covering half the area they should. I'd look for something with stiffeners in them so that they stay extended. The best thing I have found is engine oil, after an oil change. I leave it sit in the sun so any vapors can escape, for 24 hrs then wipe it on the horse's lower legs, with the direction of the hair and not into the skin. It's dirty looking but very effective and will last for 2 or 3 days.

Thank you. I think I will have to go with the cashel ones as they are contoured so I think that will help them stay up. I didn't even think about them falling down. Oil won't work I don't know anyone who changes oil anymore.
