Saxon 1200D Turnout Blanket 250g

I'm probably going to be purchasing a new blanket, as the old one I have from my previous horse will most likely be too small for Caly. Going to measure her this afternoon, but just in case, I've been shopping...

I'm relatively set on the Saxon 1200D Turnout Blanket 250g:
Saxon 1200D Turnout Blanket 250g -

Thinking about maybe going with the 150g version instead... I haven't decided.

I live in Nebraska and the winters here can get pretty harsh. I know blanketing is a personal preference, and I'm not asking for advice on whether or not I should blanket her. I've already decided that I am going to. But since Caly is a young-ish horse who isn't an especially hard keeper, I'm not terribly concerned about getting a huge, super thick blanket. I will only be using the blanket when temps are lower than 30 degrees and/or it's snowing/raining.

Has anyone used this coat before? Any reason it wouldn't work for me? Anything you love about it? Which one would you use, the 150g or the 250g? Thanks for the advice!

I forgot to mention, I'm a penny-pincher and am definitely not looking to spend more than $100, but I do want a quality blanket that will hopefully last through more than one winter.

Love, love, love anything by Saxon. I have the 1200d 300g blanket that they no longer carry and it held up great last winter. I had it cleaned and it looks just like new. I am actually buying the 1200d 150g blanket as soon as I get around to ordering.

Mine is a hard keeper so for fall she will get the 150 then winter she will get the 300.

I use Saxon 600D with 150gr on both my mares for 5 winters in row already. And they are ready for the next winter. :) Except some small tears here and there I sewed myself (they like to scratch butts on pine tree once in while) I had no issues (no rubbing as well).

Check for nice but cheap blankets. I bought a full neck 350g blanket two winters ago and it's still waterproof and intact. It was a Weatherbeeta Everest and cost me $75.

My horse LOVES his full neck blanket, so much so that I am looking for a modweight full neck. He doesn't get much of a coat and when he's bundled up he does a lot more running and playing than when he doesn't.
