I was skeptical after reading another review, but these breeches are my new favorites! Extremely comfortable and stylishly flattering. Wish I could exchange all my other breeches for more of these! One of the best things is TWO good-sized stretchy pockets for those of us who like to pack training treats for our rides!! Hard to say on durability as they are new, but they seem pretty well-made and for the price, you can't beat the quality.
