Category: English Show Apparel
Purchase: I bought these from Dover Saddlery. I had the All Circuit model from Ariat in the past, and wanted a similar breech in terms of fit, but hoped to pay less. They were less expensive (about $99 as opposed to $140 for the All Circuit).
Likes: Fabric is of good quality and is appropriately stretchy and comfortable. The calf fit is good. The side zip, low rise fit is comparable to the All Circuit model.
Dislikes: There are two things that could be easily improved on this model: 1) there is no belt loop in the center of the back - this means that if you wear a belt, the back can easily gap which can be seen if you are showing on a very hot day when the judge waives jackets due to heat; 2) the belt loops are very big, much wider than the typical belt, so the belt can shift around rather than staying put.
Quality: These breeches are well made and of good quality. They wash well in the machine (no dry cleaning bill). Air dry.
Summary: A reasonable substitute for more expensive models, with some limitations as noted above. All ariat products hold up extremely well so always a good value!
