Model: Wug Heavy Weight (View all Wug Heavy Weight reviews)
Purchase: I bought this "wug" 2 years ago for an amazing $215 brand new off E-bay. I got a size 75-77 for a 2 yr old warmblood filly whom didn't grow much of a winter coat (okay, and maybe for "mom" feeling better her filly is warm through the winter)
Likes: Loved the workmanship and quality. I wasn't sure about the purple, but when I received it, it was a gorgeous rich dark purple with silver trim. Nice high neck, no leg straps to get tangled up in, generous sizing through the body. No rubbing. Does not budge and no leg straps to get tangled up in. Does have tail strap. Does not shift, or rub.
Dislikes: If I was to really nit pick, I suppose due to the design of the v-neck closure, the wug seemed a little snug across the chest. However, I found out its specifically designed this way so the blanket will not shift, nor rub. The v-neck sits higher so by looking at the fit, it looks deceivingly snug. The bolt snaps actually come together just above the points of the shoulder at an angle, so there really isn't any constriction directly across the chest. I would suggest an Rambo XL for a draft and Quarter horse cuts for Cobs and other wide chested stout breeds. The legs straps have the rubber stops which can be a bit tricky to get the hooks to feed through, but I've found if you don't force it, they are just fine.
Quality: Just about flawless! Superior ripstop waterproof material. stainless buckles Built to last, even the color has not faded! nice silky lining, keeps coats nice and smooth.
Summary: I think I pretty much wrote a complete report! Its pricey, but I have heard of stories of Rambo blankets lasting 10 years. I can see why. Excellent workmanship, materials, fit. To me, knowing my youngster is safe for rough turnout, its worth every penny!
Usefulness Rating: 2.2 out of 5.
