Maybe I just got a dud Cashel - the one I have (had, actually, since the mice have now eaten it up) ripped within the first week, constantly came off when Lacey'd rub her head on something, and gave Lacey terrible rub lines. Weird! Maybe it's a face conformation difference too...


Anyway, I got my "favorite" (the really old one) Kensington mask for $30, and I got my two other "less favorite" ones for $15-20. They're a little spendy but it's totally worth it for me given how long they've lasted. :)

I would definitely pay 30 dollars for a mask that would last, lol!
It seems like a good price for quality, and both the Kensingtons and Cashels are around that range. I was comparing two masks from both brands and the Kensington mask with ears and nose flap took a real rap in reviews... apparently they're durable, but the velcro on the nose rubs and the fabric between the ears is way too narrow. It's the only one with a nose flap and ears, too. The (only) mask with ears seemed to get great reviews, but it still seemed to have the problem of rubbing and being too tight in the ears, plus I'm concerned about the fleece- might it be too hot in 100+ degree heat?
On the other hand, the Cashel I was looking at with ears seemed to have a problem with the elastic stretching and the nose being too big for an arabian (which is what Envi is)? Has anyone had these problems? The Cashel with ears and nose seemed to get great reviews, though- and it has a long nose flap for Gerri's long face, which was a concern of mine.

With the white face you better have the longer nose than shorter. I'm not fan of the masks with ears because they are easier to rub off, while my long nose Cashel no ears stays on (I use it since April every day). But to each own. So far Cashel been my favorite.

Cashels have worked well for my arabs, but my BO's appy likes to take his mask off and the one he came with got torn up to the point of being useless within a week. His new one that he's had for a couple weeks (same type) is doing fine. I haven't had any rubbing issues.

A Horze full-nose flymask with ears. But I only use it for riding, because we have a HUGE amount of bugs, but my boy rips his mask off in a matter of minutes, if I leave it on in the pastures.

I also really like the Cashel fly masks. I have used the Cashel Long Nose/with Ears style on my horses for many years. So far they are the best brand that I have tried, and I have tried quite a few brands over the years.

Well, the fact that Dover is having a huge summer sale sealed the deal on the Cashel fly masks- Everyone seems to really love them, and the prices were reduced, so I'm going for it, lol. Thanks everyone for sharing!
