Model: Orican (View all Orican reviews)
Purchase: A new blanket - purchased because old blanket no longer waterproof. Paid about $180.
Likes: Except for the hardware on it, it's a decent blanket - fits my horse and is waterproof, so far.
Dislikes: After one washing, the clasps on the leg straps corroded. They wouldn't open enough to allow the ring in or out and had to be treated with a strong, cancer-causing lubricant to get them to work. The blanket is constructed in China and these clasps are clearly and demonstrably inadequate.
Quality: Construction except for the clasps is ok. All the clasps are the same type. The ones on the leg straps failed after one washing. I expect the larger ones on the chest closure to fail, too, so I will have to pay to have all of them replaced with good-quality hardware.
Summary: The leg strap clasps on this Weatherbeeta blanket failed after one washing. I will never buy another Weatherbeeta blanket again. I'm going for Made in USA blankets with decent hardware.
