Model: California (View all California reviews)
Purchase: I bought this from Dover Saddlery 2009 and paid top dollar, probably about $300 or close to it.
Likes: I LOVE this blanket. It is always warm enough and never hot. (Please note: I actually do live in California.) It has enough help for California cold nights (34 degrees), even wet cold nights and yet my horse is never hot if it is left on during the sunny day. I check him all the time and he's never sweating. It is two years old now and it has held up beautifully -- it looks new still. Totally waterproof two years after purchase.
Dislikes: I like everything about this blanket. It is top shelf. I don't like that they are phasing out this "California" label and color, but look for the same characteristics in the "Original" Rambo.
Quality: Its shell is 1000 denier ballistic nylon and it has 100 grams of light fill. Just enough to help on cold nights; not enough to make him hot. The air circulation is great.
Summary: I own five blankets and this is my favorite. If I could only keep one, this would be the one.
