Purchase: Bought last year at my local tack store for around $30.00. I wanted a fly mask with a long nose to protect my paint geldings nose from sun damage, and flies. Bought this in regular horse sized, and it fits my 15hh paint perfectly.
Likes: The fit for my horse was very good, lots of room for his eyes, and good velcro to ensure it stays on. The long nose piece is awesome to protect from sunburn on my paints pink nose, and he doesn't seem to mind it at all. I also like that the mask doesn't have a heavy fleece trim like alot of other masks. This makes it quicker to dry when washed, and not as hot for the horse. My horse wore this mask all last summer, and didn't get it off once.
Dislikes: Nothing about the mask. The price is a bit higher than other masks, however I do think it is worth it because of the quality.
Quality: Good construction, velcro is long enough and holds well. Very well fitted for my horses head, better than other masks he has tried. Washes up easily, and dries fast.
Summary: Excellent fly mask, great for horses needing sunburn protection without needing to apply sunblock on the nose. I will definitely buy another one of these masks should I need to...however the one I bought and used last summer still looks like new.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
