Alpha Tight
English Casual Apparel

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Kerrits
Model: Alpha Tight
Category: English Casual Apparel

Purchase: I bought these in Sept. '07 on eBay from Gorge-US-girls for $46.00.

Likes: These are absolutely the most comfortable riding breeches I own. I end up wearing them long after I've gotten home from the barn because they feel so great. Although they're not a true low-waist cut, they are a bit lower in front so the waist doesn't bind when you ride or sit, and they come up far enough in back to keep you covered when you have to lean forward in the saddle. I love the zippers at the ankle---no more having velcro stuck to my socks, and no struggle to get a tight fitting ankle off your foot at the end of a hot day. I've always been a full-seat breeches sort of girl, and wasn't sure about knee patches only, but I feel very secure riding in these.

Dislikes: There are only two slight negatives: First, the inner thigh area has pilled a little bit---but after a hard week of riding and laundering, it hasn't gotten any worse, and it's barely noticeable. I felt the pilling, but didn't really see it. It doesn't affect the comfort or usefulness. Second, the material doesn't shed hay as easily as my other breeches---but these are so much more comfortable that it's worth picking off some hay.

Quality: The tights are well constructed with sturdy seams, heavy-duty zippers at the ankle, and a knotted draw string at the waist (so it doesn't disappear into the waistband). The material is soft and breathes well, even in the warm weather we've recently had. I washed them inside out, as I do with all my breeches, and they came through the wash looking great.

Summary: The Kerrits Alpha tight is a great tight for everyday riding, especially if comfort is first in your mind.
