Category: Fly Control
Purchase: I have used these masks for a long time. I buy them online from SmartPak usually. They cost in the $20-$25 range
Likes: I like the hole for the forelock,ears are plenty big, bulleted away from the eyes. Attractive fit. Velcro strap is double velcro (loops back on itself for more secure fastening)
Dislikes: -Durability. I usually go through 2-3 of these per season per horse. Granted, mine wear them 24/7 becasue of the mosquites at night and the flies during the say. -They come off easily. With only one strip of velcro to fasten them on, they often slip off when the horses roll or rub their head on a leg. And that is with a tight a fit as I can get. A bit of stretch added into the fabric and a second strip of velcro closer to the nose would make this a better product.
Quality: well made, fairly durable considering what my horses do to them!
Summary: Good mask - worth the extra price for the good features. I would just like the extra velcro strep for a better fit
Usefulness Rating: 3 out of 5.
