Category: English Casual Apparel
Purchase: Purchased directly from the manufacturer, $119.40 + Shipping. Shipping is expensive and very slow.
Likes: The Enduracool fabric is very lightweight and perfect for summer.
Dislikes: There is no quality control. I have three pairs of the Enduracool Full Leather Seat Breeches. My oldest pair is great and the leather is great. The leather on the new pairs is more like cardboard than leather. When I called to ask about it, I was told all the leather available is poor quality and they are having problems getting leather. I recently found out, the owner buys her leather on Ebay and I am guessing that is why the leather is such poor quality. The stitching on the hem has come down and the waste is very high for a low rise breech.
Quality: Construction is iffy. The leather seat itself is sewn on well enough with only a few misses in the stitching. The hems and the waist need to be re-done almost immediately. I get tired of sewing these breeches. The fabric itself is very lightweight and perfect for summer, especially if you ride mostly in an indoor arena. Every time I try to trail ride in a pair they snag and rip. They are also not great if you are trying to set standards.
Summary: The fabric is very light weight and the breeches are very cheap and that is why I buy them. Each pair will last most of one summer. They are basically throw-away breeches, don't expect to keep them from one year to the next. They will not last. The fabric is best if you ride in an indoor and do not do any barn work while wearing these. They are not meant for trail riding and they rip of you brush against a tree or shrub. They are also not great if you need to set standards before jumping. But if all you do is lightly groom your horse and ride in an indoor, they will last a full summer.
Usefulness Rating: 2.25 out of 5.
