I have 2 of these on 2 different horses. Ive had problems on both blankets with the chest strap. On one, both of the snaps broke the first time wearing it. The second one had the piece of nylon where the loops for the snaps attach ripped off. Seems like the hardware is a bit on the cheap end- but really no big deal as its easy to replace a snap on these blankets. But I am a bit disappointed by the stitching on the one blanket, it seems like it wasnt done with heavy thread or reinforced properly. Other than that, so far these blankets have held up nicely- no tears yet (knock on wood) as my horses can be hard on their blankets. One of my horses has high withers and this blanket seems to slide down behind the withers, which may have caused the extra stress on the stitching to cause it to rip off.
