They are extremely well made with an excellent fabric that is comfortable, durable and very good looking. The mid rise waistline is excellent , and the full seat extending all the way down the inseam on the inside calf, where you contact your horse, to me, is very important. The whole cut and style of this jod feels perfect standing or riding. Too often you get one or the other - looks/feels great standing OR looks/feels great riding .These jods by HORZE are the whole package. They also offer the nice option to not have to wear half-chaps so they can go from the barn to the store without the need to change clothes. I ride from 4 to 6 hours a day and am tough on breeches. These are very sturdy and do not seem to show any wear. They have been washed/dried a couple of times so far (I turn them inside out - not sure if necessary but I just do that with breeches) and look like new. The good look is not only my opinion as I have had several clients ask where to buy them.
