I generally prefer the Durmask brand since it has a brushed fleece lining instead of that fluffy stuff which is simply a dirt magnet. I also like the durability and fit although they do run small. My local tack store didn't have them in stock when I needed them,tso I decided to order something from online.
Riding Warehouse, my favorite tack store, carries a lot of Cashel items, a brand that makes good products. When I looked at their fly masks, I saw that Cashel is giving 5% back to several charities. I was sold.
I bought the orange mask for Izzy, although he isn't wearing his yet. I bought the horse size, which fits, but just barely. Next time, I may need to order the warmblood size, but the dimensions on the ordering chart seemed huge. I'll see how this one wears.
It rained yesterday so Izzy didn't get to wear his. I took Speedy's off for the same reason, but I made sure to take a photo first. Since the weather is going to heat up dramatically over the next day or so, both boys will be wearing their new fly masks after today.
In any case, sixteen bucks is a reasonable price to pay for a fly mask so I didn't mind.
