Purchase: I purchased this pair of breeches new from a private party over the internet for $35. I needed a pair of white breeches for showing dressage.
Likes: I liked how they fit and that's all.
Dislikes: I cannot begin to describe all the problems with these breeches! First of all, I tried them out at home one time to "break them in" and get used to them because I had never used full seat breeches before. After one use, the full seat started CRUMBLING and turned black from my saddle. Now can you believe how embarrassing that would have been if I had worn them at a show without trying them out???? Talk about HUMILIATING!!! Then I decided I would make the best out of them and I wore them a second time and the full seat material started getting HOLES in it and pieces of the material started peeling off and now I CAN'T WEAR them anymore! The only good they'll do is in the trash!
Quality: The construction is pathetic. The full seat is made of this cheap clarinio? material that crumbles and falls apart after one ride. The rest of the breech is made of cotton and polyester which is pretty sturdy, but what's the point of having a full seat if the material it's made out of falls apart?? The breech has a handy side-zipper for putting keys, treats, etc in it which is a plus. They stain VERY easily and they don't come out well. Has velcro closures at ankles and zipper/clasp in front.
Summary: I would NOT recommend these breeches to anyone, beginner or pro. These breeches rob you of your money and fall apart after one time in the saddle. That's probably why the private party on the used tack website sold them and just didn't tell me because they wanted to get rid of them. I thought Tuff Rider would make something sturdier and tough like they do their other breeches. Tuff Rider does make this breech I've read. VERY DISAPPOINTED! I notice various saddlers are discontinuing the Sigma breeches and now I know why!!
