English Saddle Fittings/Pads

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: FSS
Model: Bonded stirrup leathers
Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: i was searching for a reasonably priced pair of calfskin wrapped stirrup leathers for my new saddle. most of the ones i saw for sale locally in tack stores were well over $100. I found the FSS bonded stirrup leathers online, and including shipping to me (in canada) from the UK the total was under $50.

Likes: I love how soft these leathers are. the calfskin is just to die for, soft and supple but not thin and doesn't seem to be wearing out at all. The inner core is strong and durable, and the leathers have not stretched at all after a fair bit of use. These leathers come in about 6 or 8 different colours, so they are easy to match up to your current tack. They come in a range of sizes as well, and they also come in either traditional buckle style or in the t-bar, webber type style.

Dislikes: There is nothing that i don't like about these stirrup leathers.

Quality: I find the quality and construction of these leathers comparable to ones costing at least double. They have not started to show any wear at all after a fair bit of use. no stretching, the holes haven't started to warp or stretch, and there's no wear at the fold where the stirrup iron rubs. I would say it might be impossible to find leathers anywhere near this quality for the same price.

Summary: These are amazing stirrup leathers. I am in the process of ordering several more pairs for the rest of my saddles. I doubt i will ever buy another brand of stirrup leathers again, i love these ones THAT much.
