The best website ever to check the quality of what you buy: www.horsetackreview.com. I love it!
I bought snugpax after reading their reviews. My husband gave me a hassle because they were so expensive. He's now on his third cheap saddlebag in 2 years. My snugpax still look brand new, 2 years later. Definitely better to buy what will last, once, rather than cheap stuff, every year or so.
