    Default Toklat woolback, Toklat Coolback or Lettia Coolmax girth?

    Which do you prefer?

    I have the Lettia Coolmax girth, it's holding up well and seems comfortable for my horses. The only thing I don't like is that it takes a very long time to dry. Like if the horses sweat a lot it will still be damp the next day. Or even if it's really humid it seems to absorb the moisture out of the air. I only use it in the winter when the horses don't sweat as much. I wish I had gotten one that had the velcro so the fleece part could be washed separately. I tried putting the Lettia in the washer and the buckles were clanging around, and then it took like 2 days to dry. I know I could tie socks around the buckles and whatnot, but life would be easier if I could just wash the fleece separate like on some of the Professional Choice girths, or else just the fleece tube that slides over a regular girth. Otherwise, I've been happy with it, it's good quality and well made.
