Which blanket brands/models don’t hinder the horse’s shoulders?

Which blanket brands/models don’t hinder the horse’s shoulders?
Well movement is gong to cause hairs to be trimmed because of friction, exposing the skin to rubbing. It depends on the horse's shoulders, movement and hairs. I would suggest a shoulder protector if his shoulders are rubbed.
I love Weatherbeetas and Horseware but if they're out of your budget, I can recommend Axiom turnout rugs which are sold only on eBay. Sadly they don't offer much variation in terms of weight and are often mad patterns :)
I would recommend the Rambo XL line or the chest extender piece for a broad-shouldered horse. I love my regular rambos for my mare, and she does not get any rubs (and she's quite sensitive and thin skinned.)
