Category: English Show Apparel
Purchase: Online for use for schooling and shows (I have a tan pair and a black pair). $49.95 on sale (normally $60+)
Likes: I like that they are truly low rise, but slightly higher in the back so you don't show any...well you know. The material is nice (good thickness and stretch) and the wide waistband is comfortable.
Dislikes: At first appearance, they seem perfect. Quality is a HUGE issue though! Perhaps they are too low for people with a regular or long waist, but I am short waisted.
Quality: While they seem to be put together nicely, they don't last long. I've worn them a dozen times and the velcro at the ankles has become frayed and doesn't close well, the seam that runs up your seat has small white pieces of elastic fraying on it already and there is a hole just above the knee patch on one leg. Not what I expect since I have a pair of Tuffriders that I paid less for and wear twice as often and they still look great!!!
Summary: I am rating them a "1" because of the quality issue. I expect breeches to last longer than a dozen or so rides and I have other brands of breeches that exceed that and still look great. Also, I emailed Dublin's "contact us" page twice and never even received a response. I will not buy any more products from Dublin simply because of their lack of concern.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
