I absolutely love these breeches! The fit is fantastic, I have fairly long legs so the location of the full seat patch is always a concern. The Irideons kept everything where is belonged and not down around my knees. The breeches are supper sturdy, I wore them constantly. They did finally surrender to doggie teeth, but not before I wore them almost daily, through an entire season of lessons and shows. I would totally recomend these breeches to anyone. They look great, are reasonably priced and give a little extra stickiness in the saddle. An added bonus for those of us not rail-thin, the stretch cord fabric keeps the giggles to a minimum when you are sitting the trot!
