McAlister Blankets? - edited.. my mare is huge!

I'm looking into eventually getting a heavyweight blanket, midweight blanket, and a lightweight blanket for various seasons... right now it's snowing really hard and I feel bad for my mare who's standing out without a blanket.

Anyone know about McAlister blankets? I found one on sale for $50, reg $129. Heavyweight, 1200D waterproof:

If anyone can comment on them, or recommend another brand or website for around the same price range, that would be wonderful!


EDITED TO ADD:

So I ordered my mare an 80" blanket and it finally arrived yesterday... I tried it on today and it fits... my 15hh mare needs an 80" blanket!! How crazy is that??

Looks fine to me. I can't remember the brand on my blanket, I think its a Weatherbeeta midweight. I paid 90 for it some where. Anyway it keeps my horse toasty through out the whole winter.

I have several blankets and for me the most important thing AFTER waterproof is it must have a nylon lining. Otherwise, it rubs. I have a Tough-1, McAllister and one from State Line Tack.

Also, be sure to measure for a good fit.
