Default Ebay turbo blanket?

I was planning on buying the PTP blanket, they were really helpful via email. But there are some other companies that claim to make them in the US yet are less than half the price. Any one have experience with one of them? Same stuff? I see at least one outfit in Ohio and one in LA with solid feedback scores.

Isnt that how most of the "brand name" companies start off, on ebay. With a product as simple as a turbo blanket, it really hard to see any company screw that up. I would def. Take a chance on an ebay turbo blanket. Now ita a whole other story with a crucial part like a turbo

The thing with Ebay to remember is there is a FLOOD of fake/ripoff/replica products. With that being said, it's entirely possible for a company to start on Ebay and be good. With something as simple as a turbo blanket, there is very little to design or even have go wrong. Most parts on Ebay you can buy and be just fine with. Some products are just crap. Do your research, and you should end up just fine.
