Purchase: I purchased the Kerrits Microcord bootcut extended knee-patch at a local equestrian dealer in Portland Oregon. I paid $79 for them.
Likes: I love these jodphur type tights!! They are extremely comfortable for us short-waisted types and the wide F-low rise waistband is not only super comfortable, it makes the tights fit attractively. Additionally, the microcord fabric is a bit heavier than most riding tights and offers more support without constricting in any way. They are easy to brush off with a damp cloth so you can go from the barn to the grocery store and not look a mess out in the non-horse public. I love the fact that I do not need to wear half-chaps or high boots because the extended patch covers high friction areas and protects my legs while giving me a close feel to the horse's sides. I like to get to the barn, tack up and be riding without a lot of fuss and waste of time and these tights make life easy because they are simple and do their job. They don't need jodphur straps to stay put, rarely moving more than 1/2 to 1" inch during the ride. If you are a dressage rider only acquainted with breeches you need to give these a try. They will make you more comfortable and unrestricted while you school your horses.
Dislikes: Nothing. I was hoping Kerrits would come out with a full-seat version that would increase the feeling of a secure seat and they have done that!
Quality: I have used one pair of these tights several times a week for as long as they first came out on the market. They have washed extremely well and the stitching has held up through rigorous use. They are more durable than many other breech brands that are far more expensive.
Summary: For daily schooling purposes the Microcord bootcut tights are one of the best buys you can make when you consider all aspects: price, comfort, looks, durability and function.
Usefulness Rating: 2.6 out of 5.
