Category: English Casual Apparel
Purchase: I bought these jodhpurs in Germany, though they are also available in the US from www.proryders.com. I paid around EUR130, the current price at the above webpage is $259. I was looking for a good quality, good looking jodhpurs for everyday riding.
Likes: I love these jodhpurs! They are very comfortable and stylish. I can stop by a store on the way back from the barn and it's not obvious where I've just come from! I've actually had compliments on the jodhpurs from people who didn't even realize that I was wearing riding apparel. I've yet to find any quality issues or other problems, and I've had this pair of jodhpurs for 2 1/2 years, I believe. Still looks the same as on day one. Previously, I've only owned real leather full seat jodhpurs, and I have to admit, the imitation leather has its advantages. It's easy to clean and looks like new every time. It also stays somewhat rough, for better grip in the saddle.
Dislikes: Pricey. Not as bad if you have contacts to Germany and can buy them there, but they are pretty expensive he in the US.
Quality: According to the manufacturer's description, the jodhpurs are 93% cotton, 7% lycra. The full-seat is made of imitation leather (60% nylon, 40% polyurethane). This particular model (called "New Mexico in Germany, "Sevilla" in the US) comes in two color combinations. The seat is solid brown (black), the pant material is striped in brown/blue (black/red). The material is not smooth, but like a very fine corduroy. Machine washable. This particular model is a bit smaller than the size suggests, so you might want to order one size larger than you are used to.
Summary: Great quality jodhpurs that look very stylish. A bit pricey.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
