Which one do you prefer ... the zip up or the over the head stretch hoods?

I like the zip ups better. Easier to get on and off.

Zip up.

I really wouldn't have it any other way.

Easier to get on and off, not to mention that it won't wreck braids/bandings.

Does the zipper rub ?! I have never tried a zipper one... sounds intriguing !

I was concerned about that as well, when I was trying to decipher between zip or pull on, but now I'm glad I went with the zipper. It doesn't rub or pinch my horse at all, and it's much easier to keep the bands straight and neat when you put it on.
Mind, my horse isn't what I would call sensitive skinned, so it may be more of a concern on a thinner skinned horse, but I have no issue with the zipper rubbing on my horse.

I only have one and it is a zipper one, and I won't buy another sort now, it is easy to get on and off and doesn't rub

I have the pull-over type. My horse is perfectly fine with it and it provides a relatively seamless look and feel and I don't have worry about catching any long hairs or whiskers in the zipper during the winter. My best friend has a zipper and a pull-over and the zipper one has pulled out a lot of hair over the years - albeit unintentionally. For me, the pull-over hasn't messed up my horse's mane or braids at all. His mane always looks just as nice as a horse's mane with a zipper sleazy. I like them both and find that I tend to leave the zipper-type zipped and just slide them on and off anyway.
