Kensington Roustabout or Horseware Rhino

I need to buy a new blanket. Right now the Kensington Roustabout and Horseware Rhino are the same price. Pros/cons of either? Which would you buy?

I'm getting a light weight, mostly for rain and cleanliness (riding a paint with lots of white!) and his pasturemate can be a bit mouthy.

If the other horse bites I wouldn't bother with anything other than a ballistic nylon outer (eg. Horsewear Rambo).

Most ripstop is okay for normal use but it won't take the extra punishment, IME.

Well, I cannot afford a Rambo. These 2 have been turned out together for about 5 years, and neither has wrecked the other's blanket, yet, but I always consider that. The Roustabout is not available in his size, or the right weight, so now I'm teetering between a Weatherbeeta Freestyle (1200D), Rhino (1200D) or Amigo Bravo (1200D). The Weatherbeeta and Amigo have both a neck and no neck model.

He's been in the same Pesoa blanket for 5 years, and the D ring on the leg strap is just about done, otherwise I wouldn't even be looking.

In that case it just depends on the cut of the rug.

I've never seen a Kensington so can't comment, but Horsewear rugs seem to fit a variety of shapes. We've had Rambo Original T/Os on a 15.2 medium weight TBx, Wug Plus's on a 16.2 IDxTB and a 16.2 DWB, and currently using an Amigo Light T/O on a broad 16hh DWBxID, if that helps at all :)

The only Rhino we used was a pony Wug T/O years ago, which lasted a week
:(

I will say the Amigo blankets don't seem to hold up well. I absolutely love the cut and how it fits my little arab but even with 1200d it got rips just as fast as my 600d saxon. And my little girl is pretty darn easy on blankets. My weatherbeeta is the only blanket yet that doesn't have any signs of wear and it's older than 3 of mine and only 600d.
