Pros: The wool liner wicks away sweatInsulates well
Cons: Not as durable as ripstop nylon
Comments: I should have known better, I'm pretty sure my horse takes a boxcutter to all of his blankets when I'm not looking (we have a fiberglass, interlocked fence, so he's not ripping it on that). Shires Stormcheetas are the only rugs that'll last him more than 2 seasons. This rug lasted 2 months, and he's not blanketed daily, and when he is his blankets still get rotated. If your horse doesn't roll a lot and practices with katanas this should be a great buy for you, otherwise stick with Shires.
