Model: Irideon Issential Riding Tights Plus Size
Category: English Casual Apparel
Purchase: I'm a plus size rider in Canada, and I was having great difficulty finding riding clothes. Finally, I turned to the Internet, and I bought a pair of Irideon Issential Riding Tights through horsetackco.com, in the States. I paid $69.95 US plus shipping and customs.
Likes: I was thrilled when I tried them on. They are very comfortable, and very supportive. They have a nice, wide waistband, and I very much like the contoured seams and Clarino knee patches. The fabric doesn't collect bits of hay or other agricultural debris, and it washes and dries well. I liked my first pair (black) so much that I ordered a second pair (oak - a dark grey green). I wear a pair almost every day for riding.
Dislikes: I wish the plus sizes came in a wider array of colours (at the moment they only come in black, oak and midnight -- a dark blue). I also wish that a Canadian company would pick them up -- but I've had great service from horsetackco.com, and will continue to order from them until someone in Canada wakes up and realizes that there's a market for larger riding clothes.
Quality: Mostly, the construction is of a very high quality -- welted, flat, double sewn seams, nice gripper elastic at the ankles, high quality fabric. However I just noticed that some of the stitching at the waist is coming loose, which I will have to repair -- this is after 8 months of frequent use.
Summary: I liked these comfortable, good looking riding tights so much that I bought a second pair! I will certainly buy more in the future, if I need to replace my current ones.
