JT International
Tough 1 1200 denier turnout blanket with 400 grams fill

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: JT International
Model: Tough 1 1200 denier turnout blanket with 400 grams fill
Category: Horsewear

Purchase: I ordered this blanket last year from State Line tack for a mare who needed a warmer blanket. I saw this had 400 grams of fill and constructed of nylon so I thought it would keep her warm and hold up to normal horse wear & tear. I can't remember what I paid but it was around $120 or so.

Likes: Style, fit, design, warmth, and materials used are all excellent. It's a fairly lightweight blanket for the warmth it offers and has a lot of nice features. I love the extra gussets, and all the dee rings for attaching a neck cover, if needed.

Dislikes: Other reviewers have complained about stitching coming out. They are quite right. I found loose stitching on my blanket this morning; I'm going to have to repair that if I don't want the threads to unravel and the binding to come off. The use of quality nylon and addition of features such as clip and dee chest closures, and extra gussetts don't mean much of the stitching comes out. The blanket has to stand up to normal use to be any good. My mare is not hard on her clothing; she's thin skinned with a fine coat and loves her blankets. She is also the alpha mare so no one gets to chew or bite her clothing either.

Quality: POOR! NO EXCUSE FOR LOUSY STITCHING! Come on, JT International - if you're going to go to the trouble to use good nylon and sensible, modern design, at least make the stitching nice and tight so the blanket stays in one piece.

Summary: Sorry, until JT International institutes some kind of quality control, and the stitching improves, I wouldn't recommend anyone buy this blanket. It's too bad because it could, if not for the crappy stitching, compete with the big names.
