Likes: After having had a baby and taking 10 months off from riding, I was a little nervous to get back on my horse. The first few rides, I felt like I was all over the place. I can get my full chaps to zip, but they're so tight I can't get my leg over the horse, even using the mounting block. What's a girl to do? I saw an ad for these in a horse magazine and thought I'd give them a try. Kerrits doesn't lie, these jokers are super sticky. Depending on what you're doing, that can be a good thing. I use them for jumping and for windy days when I figure I might need a little help. I also use them when I'm riding strange horses for the first time.
Dislikes: Either the sizing runs a little small or these are meant to fit tight. I have other kerrits breeches in a size large that fit fine but these look like they're painted on. I should have gone up a size. As another reviewer noted, they squeak. They really do grip the saddle, so if you prefer freedom of movement, pass these by. However, if you need to keep your butt planted firmly in the saddle, these are for you.
Quality: Kerrits always puts out a good product. Fabric won't pill, fully machine washable. Stitching is nice a tight.
Summary: I still favor my equissentials as far as the perfect balance of comfort and grippiness, but when I need extra security, I pull these out.
Usefulness Rating: 3 out of 5.
