Amigo® Bravo 12 ReflecTech Plus is rated
Rated 5 out of
I have owned this blanket for 3 years now. I looked on Horseware’s site for their specific measurement process because it’s a bit different than the traditional. Fits my Hanoverian perfectly!
I’ve had zero issues with stitching, lining, straps, clips. This blanket gets used as my Med Weight and Heavy Weight because I add a 100g liner to it to make it the Heavy Weight. I haven’t had problems with the waterproofing. I do take great care of it - hosing the outside off after she cakes it in mud, storing it after it’s been cleaned in a tote box in the trailer for off season.
I chose this blanket because it’s Amigo and fit my budget, but also because of the extra reflective properties. My girls are turned out at night, so this makes finding them easier and if something happened & they get out I know this mare will be seen sooner than the ones that just have reflective on the front and tail flap.
And, this is just icing on the cake… the reflective pin stripes line up perfectly when the neck cover is attached! Not sure if you’ve ever tried to sew something and keep lines like pin stripes line up… but it can be a beast!!
Kudos to the people who were involved in the design of this blanket.

So I trust the horseware brand and after much consultation with cello horse people it seems that the bravo 12 was actually the better budget line and rivaled many of the Rambos. so trying to save a few bucks and having had rhinos break on me before, I tried this. I love it and it would be five stars except for the fact that it already had started breaking within the first three days of uses from the underneath. Stitching is already starting to come loose, and lining tear. No my boys are bad but certainly not that bad to pull lining from where their back is- this is a quality issue. It seems that in the last year the blankets I have purchased from Smart pack of this brand have all been extremely poor quality and very defective ripping with the first week of use very very light use, might I add. Just bummed, hence 2 stars. And of course SmartPak did offer to replace it which is why I choose SmartPak because I know they have my back but of course the size I need and any of them close to it are now not in stock. I can’t recommend this blanket unless the quality was just a one off, but since it has happened mini time I think your best bet is just to buy an older, used Rambo. Those things are still Kickin
