I've found some 600D's that are really good. Depends on the brand you get.

I just looked through all their blankets that would fit the bill and there are no 68's or 69's to be found. =( Sad day. I like Stateline Tack too. =)

Lacey's winter blanket is 600d and it's held up pretty well. It has ripped a few times but I'm pretty handy with a sewing machine so I've been able to get it back into almost perfect, waterproof, condition without much work. So I'm not too worried about rips. Also, this summer when she'll be wearing this blanket, she'll be by herself so I don't have to worry about other horses being tough on it. =)

Thanks for all the suggestions! I think I'm going to get my money together, then go check out my local tack stores (I'm pretty sure they will be WAY over priced, but I might find something), then go from there. Thanks again! =) I'll definitely look at all the brands suggested.

I bought THIS in light weight (no fill) for my destructo mare and it has held up well. Even with out leg straps it just stays put too. I have been pleasantly surprised by how well it has held up.
