I have bought several pairs of these over the years, I ride in them 5 days a week and they are the most comfortable of all the breeches I have tried. They are easy to pull on with a very stretchy non binding feel. Very comfortable in the saddle with no pinching in the crotch area, I do wear a belt with them to keep them up in the waist. I keep trying other brands but always come back to these. I gave an 8 on durability because the inside of the leg seems to wear out after about a year, but considering how much I wear them that is probably acceptable.
