    Saddlebag--I was under the impression that, assuming the horse is not sweaty from a workout or the blanket itself, a horse can "fluff up" (teehee, I love that term xD) underneath a blanket, and therefore get the benefits of extra warms. <3

    I have a 600D high neck tough1 for my mare and it fits well(maybe a bit big but I went up a size so to be expected) She's worn it off and on for the last few months and no problems with it so far

    Also, my mare would FREEZE with no blanket, she's a TB who grows very little in the way of a winter coat, My old gelding also gets blanketed, while he grows a monster thick coat, he's really old(42) and needs keeping warm and maintaining weight, my moms fat appy on the other hand only gets blanketed when there is a -wind chill(because she feels bad) but he's always fine lol

    I won't say there "cwap" as "Daffy Duck" would say, but from my experiences there "middle of the road at best".

    I have two 1200 denier ones. Caseys has held up well for the past two winters and she's good with her blankets. Candys blanket lasted one winter (4 months, two days a week usage at night only) and then a surcingle was ripped off and a front snap had broken. Halfway through the winter the blanket got a one inch rip along the seam along her belly. Candy is pretty good with her blankets as well.

    My mare destroyed 2 of them in a matter of months. They've managed to survive after heafty patchwork, but after this season (they ripped horribly again this year) they may or may not make another year. They're both a lower denier so I can't vouch for the one you're looking at. They seemed to fit both my mares well - only one of them got shoulder rubs.

    I just got one for my boy, the green zebra pattern. It is ADORABLE and so far he has gotten one tiny tear from getting bit on the bum by another horse, but it hasn't gotten any larger. I believe mine is the 600 not 1200, and it has 200g of fill I believe.

    A better but still cute sheet/blanket, though it's a little more expensive, is the Saxon 1200D that comes in blackberry plaid. It's not pink, but the purple/blue plaid is quite fashionable and even more importantly, VERY durable/waterproof. I LOVE this sheet but I couldn't resist trying the green zebra print!

    My BO, however, bought some other Tough 1 blankets that were almost immediately torn to shreds by her horses. They were a different style, though, not sure what denier.

    It's all about the denier of the fabric. I won't go below 1200, but that's because my horse is in with other horses and they sometimes tear each other's blankets. Acey is actually really careful and a good blanket lasts years with proper maintenance. She has a Tough-1 turquoise zebra sheet that has been good so far...but I LOVE her Stormshield winter turnout from SS tack. It is extremely durable, well made and wasn't that much more expensive than her old Weatherbetta.

    I have 2 of them. I have the snuggit model and then just the regular kind. Love the snuggit as I can adjust the neck opening to fit the horse better and it has clips on the front buckles which make it super easy to take on and off. They have both help up and have stayed waterproof. The snuggit I had for going on 1yr now and no tears or rips. The other one I just got. My old mare is turned out with 2 other horses and it the low one in the herd and it has survived lots of bites. Just make sure you order the higher denier as they don't rip as easy.

    I only a Polar 2100 denier heavyweight from Tough-1 and I have to say I'm pretty pleased with it. It really is a "you get what you pay for" brand, though. My boy's Tough-1 is in great shape and it is on it's third winter, even with some rough play.
