    Default Amigo Mio turnouts... yea or nay?

    Found a great deal on Amigo Mios. Rambo is the only blanket style I've found that fits my Appy well. Since Amigo is the poor-man's version of Rambo (right?) can I assume that the Amigo will fit the same as a Rambo? Also, are they worth buying or are they pretty shoddy?

    They rip easily. Would not buy again for horses turned out in groups.

    I find that they last one season if the horse has individual turnout.

    My guy is not a blanket Killer---I have two of the light ones and one of the medium wts. All still perfect--look NEW and on 3rd season. I would not use the Amigo Mio on anyone who is 'hard' on clothes.

    I love them *because* they are so lightweight. However, it is true, they rip really easily. Our pony is fine on blankets; his herdmates, not so much:

    I haven't had the Mio, but I have the Amigo Hero (600 denier) and its on its 3rd season as well. Its really lightweight and my horse is out 24/7 with 5 other horses. One was particularly rough on the blanket and the blanket only seemed to come out of last season with some minor small holes.

    That being said, I am upgrading my horses lightweight to an Amigo Bravo (1200 denier). I am sure that his red Hero would last another season, but I want something light weight with a hood for those rainy fall/winter days that aren't cold enough to wear a blanket.

    Amigo Mio is 600D. Nothing 600D is going to be hugely durable/rip proof. On the flip side, the Amigo Mio is cheap.
