Weaver heavy weight turnout blankets?

Weaver turnout 1200 denier blankets. Are they decent quality do they hold up good?? Local farm supply has them for 100$.

I could use heavy weight blankets without neck covers attached. Already blanketing with medium weight blankets..

1200 denier is more than OK for most horses to not destroy.
I would make the purchase ramboo...1200 is the industry standard, unless you know positively your horse is in a area of tree and fence snags and tears or with a confirmed blanket destroyer...think you will be good with 1200.
Weaver products I've found are of better than decent quality.

..

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....

No he doesn't destroy his blankets no tears or rips in any blanket he wears. I've never bought weaver blankets, always went with other brands. Most of my blankets are 1200 denier 2 are 1680 denier.

I have some weaver brand products I've been happy with. Just never have bought weaver turnout blankets. Seemed to be good quality ,when I looked at blankets in store.

The one thing I would suggest is measure a blanket that fits Ice well around his barrel that the Weaver are not skimpy and expose that part of the anatomy that he needs well covered for his comfort factor.
If there was a center seam it would be much easier, with the t/o style you have to open and measure it all so you know the coverage is plentiful...
I would expect it to be as Weaver is what they are as a manufacturer with their name attached to are not going to ruin that reputation with junk quality.
You know what you are handling if stitching is good, lining and fill is correctly placed, the blanket closures are good quality and properly applied...
You should be fine...
