Essential Tight
English Casual Apparel



Manufacturer: Irideon
Model: Essential Tight
Category: English Casual Apparel

Purchase: Purchased at an endurance ride for $65 because I left my breeches at home. My family has now each bought a pair because mine are AWESOME.

Likes: These tights look dainty, but they are VERY tough. I've ridden exclusively in them since I bought them...for literally thousands of miles over several years...and they've just now shown a tiny hole below the knee. They have withstood briars, sticks, and very abusive wear of endurance. Mine have been washed a million times, and still look good. Seems to resist stains--mine are the light olive green color--even blood from a cut finger came out beautifully with no special washing. Overall, I like the placement of the seams.

Dislikes: They are too long. I'm not sure if I accidentally got a "long" pair (they aren't labeled as such), but I have some excess at the bottom and I have VERY long legs for my height. They can be a little slippery. This is no problem when riding with my fleece saddle cover, but, I just bought a new saddle and was riding without the cover, and I had a bit of a problem not sliding too much. This wasn't a problem in my old saddle with or without the cover, so this problem might be related to the fact the new saddle needs to be oiled a bit more. On extremely long rides, the "butt" seam can make me a touch ouchy, but I'm talking 70+ miles. Fits like a glove--good fit--but this is a tight, so it shows bumps and lumps more than breeches.

Quality: Very tough, very good material and stitching. Has been very durable under extreme conditions.

Summary: Although a bit expensive, very much worth the money. Everyone in the family has a pair now, and I really want to save up some cash and get a second color.
