What do you guys think of this blanket? Decent?

I really like the colors of this blanket and it's fairly cheap, but I'm kind of leery of the quality. I've bought a blanket from this seller before and whole-heartedly expected it to be a cheap piece of crap (a heavy-weight winter blanket for $40 brand new), but it was pretty good. Take a look and let me know what you think. I know you can't tell much from pictures, but...yeah. Lol

those colors remind me of 3D comics/movies. Where you wear those glasses with one red and one blue lens to make stuff pop out. Ha, my two cents.

Looks alot like Red's blanket make wise....and his is very warm, easy to clean and wears well. Just today he was playing his favorite game which is "I'm a bucking racehorse" running laps around the house bucking chasing his girl and his blanket never budged. I'd bet looking at it it's the same blanket maker different color, but hard to tell cause I'm on my phone.

I don't know but the colors are so much fun that I ordered a fleece cooler from them. Can't mess that up right?

I don't trust blankets that don't have a brand name. The chest straps look thin/flimsy. The neck looks really scooped too, which will allow it to hang low and rub more easily.

I have two of these blankets and LOVE them!
Kens-I-Tech Lightweight Turnout Rug | Pet Supplies, Horse Supplies, Dog Supplies | KVsupply.com

I also have two of these and they lasted last year very well.
Saxon 600D Medium Weight Turnout Blanket - Statelinetack.com

Both have the slightly higher cut "euro" style neck.

I bought a blanket from them last year for my then-weanling filly (the only 64'' blanket I could find that wasn't $150+) and it was definitely worth the money. Not Rider's International quality or anything, but for $40 you can't beat it. My biggest issue was the inside lining wasn't smooth/slick (I'm drawing a blank for the material it usually is), it was just a normal cotton-type lining. But that didn't cause any problem because the shoulder areas ARE lined with the good material.

I agree with Beau, that's the only problem I have with mine. Straps are good, has great padding at problem areas.
