    Default Looking for a terry cloth cooler

    I need to replace a friend's terry cloth cooler that got shredded in the washer. She got hers in Europe so I am hoping to find one here! The brand is Eskadron, she got it a long time ago though. She doesn't care about the brand, but she really wants a terry cloth one. Anyone seen these before?

    I think that Blue Ribbon may make them.

    Blue Ribbon definitely makes one. SmartPak sells all the Blue Ribbon stuff, and if you don't see it listed on their website, you can definitely do it as a special order if you call them.

    ETA: They do have it on their website here:
    http://www.SmartPakEquine.com/Produc...ctclassid=6503

    However, if you don't like the options of the "stock" one (like a closed front), you can still get a custom one however you want it special ordered. Just call them and they can set it up for you.

    Katrina at the Clothes Horse will make just about anything custom.

    I have been planning to ask her if she can do a terry cooler--I have one that I no longer put in the dryer because of it's age. It's also from Europe, can't recall the brand. It has a little stretch to it. It's not as long as the one on the link above, and it's a little more fitted, which I like.

    These are less expensive, and come in a closed and open front flavor.

    Greenhawk has a terry cloth cooler but they're one size fits all. I think they're around $70 cdn.

    I have one made by Practical Choice, which I believe is a brand no longer marketed. It is double ply, with front buckle closures and criss-cross surcingles. I love it! Hubby bought it for me about 10 years ago. I don't know if any other company took over Practical Choice, but if so, maybe they can still be found under another name. I recall it did cost about $100 back then, so it would likely have a considerably higher cost now. I only use it occasionally, as I know it will be difficult to replace.

    If the one you accidentally shredded was Eskadron, I'm sure it wasn't cheap.

    It was around $120 or so new, but it was really old and already had repairs on it already.
