Model: Powerstretch (Winter) Knee Patch Breeches
Category: English Casual Apparel
Purchase: I purchased these at Crazy Horse Tack in Massachusetts (www.equestrian-tack.com) for $89.00; I needed breeches to wear while riding and doing barn work in cold, snowy winter weather.
Likes: Everything! I bought the breeches in black, but they also come in tan, navy, and teak (a nice medium-grayish-brown). Although a pull-on style, they have the "flowrise" waistband which is cut slightly lower in front for comfort, and slightly higher in back for coverage. Also, the waistband has belt loops if you like to wear a belt with your breeches!
Dislikes: Not a "dislike", but it would be nice if the breeches had a small zippered pocket. However, the lack of a pocket will not stop me from buying a pair in every color!
Quality: Very well constructed, with flat seams smoothly stitched. The sturdy fabric is fleece-lined, and horsehair doesn't stick to the breeches. The knee patches are appropriately grippy. The bottoms of the breeches are elasticized, but the elastic isn't "bunchy"; I can comfortably wear the breeches either tucked into my paddock boots or over them, makes no difference! The breeches are machine washable, and are sized small, medium, or large; I find they run pretty true-to-size, and are pretty "forgiving", too!
Summary: Kerrits has produced a terrific product in the Powerstretch Breech. They're warm and durable, and the fabric isn't skimpy at all.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
