Cotton Naturals Side-Zip Breeches
English Casual Apparel



Manufacturer: On Course
Model: Cotton Naturals Side-Zip Breeches
Category: English Casual Apparel

Purchase: I bought these at Tack Room Inc. for $30 on sale. They retail for about $85. I was in need of a new pair of breeches, ordered a pair, they called and said they were sold out and suggested these instead, so I thought I'd try them.

Likes: They were pretty inexpensive.

Dislikes: Pretty much everything. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the side-zip, but I don't like it because it catches on my skin. I don't like how they look; they offer way too much room on the backside and hips for me, so they bunch around my actual hips and then fall loose and saggy by my belly button and in the back. The crotch area is too low. The breeches are designed so that instead of just having the seams on the side of your legs, they run right over your knees, which is really uncomfortable. I think that might be so when you ride the seams aren't on the insides of your legs? They bunched up when I tried riding in them, and although I ordered the size I normally wear, these seemed shorter. I also wasn't a big fan of the elastic around the ankles, this felt restrictive and uncomfortable. The material wasn't too bad, but I didn't find it to be the most comfortable material either, although my thoughts may have been compromised just because the seams on my knees were very irritating and I didn't like the length, the elastic, the fit, or how they bunched up when riding.

Quality: There are knee-patch breeches with suede knee patches, elastic around the ankles, and a side-zipper with a clasp at the top and a fake snap (it looks like you are wearing the breeches sideways). They look like they might be durable enough for everyday riding, but they are very uncomfortable.

Summary: I won't be riding in these breeches again and am back to buying my Tuff Rider breeches, which run less anyhow and are a more comfortable and rugged and durable breech.
