Turnout in a Tote
Manufacturer: Perri's Leather
Model: Turnout in a Tote
Purchase: I bought this blanket on sale for $90.00 from Equus Now!
Likes: The color is very pretty! The picture looks like it's blue and white plaid, but it's actually light purple and blue (hides the dirt better!). The fleece on the withers has held up well. It fits her very well, and stays on without shifting, even when she rolls, runs, and lies down. It has gotten a few snags, but none have run. The blanket came in a large fabric tote bag,which is perfect for storage, or any use.
Dislikes: The chest straps are fastened in an odd manner. There is a buckle, like a normal blanket, and a snap. I had to tie knots in the chest straps to make it fit. My horse normally goes on the second smallest hole on other blankets, but these straps were not able to be shortened enough.
Quality: 1200 denier waterproof turnout blanket. The material of the blanket seems well constructed, and all fabric components seem sturdy.
The metal however seems to be poor quality. The snap on the top chest strap broke off, and one of the snaps on the legstraps. I've reattached with bailing twine, and everything is holding up great otherwise.
leg straps are elastic, and have held up well with no stretching. Crisscross surcingles seem to be a poly propylene material and seem sturdy.
A few small plastic reflectors were sewn onto the blanket. The plastic has torn off, but they were barely stitched on to begin with.
Summary: The metal seems to be of cheaper quality, but everything else seems fine, and even a strap missing, the blanket stays in place well without shifting or rubbing.
I'm overall pleased with this blanket, and I think it is worth investing in. Pretty color, fairly sturdy, and at $90.00 for a 300g 1200 d blanket, I'm happy!
