Purchase: I bought my 1st pair at a tack shop on sale for about $65. The other two pairs I bought from tackoftheday.com for $45 each, they retail for $90. I switched to dressage and needed some full seat breeches. I already had several pairs of Kerrits breeches that I loved so I thought I'd give these a try.
Likes: Everything!!! I love the fabric. Its very stretchy and has a slimming effect, its extremely comfortable to move around in and for riding. The tights are not restricting at all yet make you look great too. The fabric wears well and washes great. Horse hair and hay do not stick to it. I love the pockets! I put EVERYTHING in them, keys, sunglasses, $$, cell phone, chapstick, horse treats, etc. The pockets are extremely convenient and nothing ever falls out of them and they retain their shape well. I also love the Sit-tight fabric on the seat, you really do stick to the saddle like glue. I found that I'm not at all restricted if I want to do a posting trot or go in two point. They may squeak sometimes depending of what type of saddle you are riding in but it goes away. The full seat is awesome for helping keep your seat in the saddle especially on slippery saddles. If you like to move around the saddle these are not for you! These breeches are comfy, look great, very functional and help you stay in the saddle. I love them!!!
Dislikes: There is not much to dislike about these. Sometimes I do get a little sweaty under the full seat but only on a very hot day after lots of riding. The rest of the fabric really does wick away sweat to keep you cool. I have no other complaints!
Quality: The quality is great! The fabric is very technologically advanced and the stitching is great. I've had my first pair about a year and they still look brand new after many washings. These are so much better than traditional leather full seats, you can actually MOVE in these! The whole breech is stretchy and comfy. The fabric wicks away sweat to keep you cool.
Summary: If you're looking for a no slip grip in the saddle, comfort, hard wearing, useful breech don't hesitate to pay full price for these! I own 3 pairs of these now as well as 4 other pairs of Kerrits breeches. They come in knee patch too if you don't like full seat. I love all Kerrits breeches but these are the best by far!!!
