I placed an order from Riding Warehouse and saw these breeches for a great price:
|Dublin Performance Warm-it Silicone Full Seat Tights|
(I should say at this point that I paid for these and am receiving nothing for this review)
They are now my new favourite breeches. I love them. They are the most comfortable breeches I have ever worn. They feel like yoga pants. The cut is high enough to *ahem* hold things in but not so high that you feel like they could be worn as a bra. I have a 10 inch difference between my hips and waist and my thighs are NOT skinny. These fit like a glove- nothing bagged anywhere. The fabric is soft, with a nice weight. The fleece lining is not heavy.
But Teresa, I hear you say, how are they for riding?
|wearing them at the J. Brooks clinic|
I wasn't sure what I would think of the silicone- I have heard mixed reviews of people in terms of the silicone seat. However, I found it to be perfect. My seat felt still when I needed it to be and able to move when I needed to move. They are also warm. I have ridden in them frequently since the Jacquie Brooks clinic. I love how I can stay secure in the saddle no matter what Carmen was doing underneath. There was no bagging, no pulling, no riding up in the, well, you-know-what.
I am planning to buy more of these breeches to see if I love the other styles. I have looked and there are no retailers of Dublin in my area. I shall have to see if I can get a tack shop to look at their products. Otherwise it will be on-line.
Definitely need to try a pair of these on. Keep us posted if you find a local retailer! Might get some online & sell if they don't work for me, but by the sound of it, they will! Thanks for the review.ReplyDelete
I hope that they work for you. I love mine.Delete
Oooh these sound nice! I really want to try some of the silicone full seats, and winter breeches are definitely a must now that I have lights up in the arena! And Riding Warehouse is my kryptonite.....ReplyDelete
It seems that you have to buy them. Plus they come in nice colours...Delete
The breeches look very nice and if they fit and are comfortable that's a big plus. Nice find.ReplyDelete
I cannot emphasize how comfortable they are.Delete
Those look like just the thing for winter! Great review.ReplyDelete
I think they will work really well.Delete
I have two pairs of the same tights in the all season weight and absolutely love them, they wear and wash great and they are so comfortable. I don't think I will ever go back to regular full seats again. The smartpak piper knit breeches with the full silicone seat are also quite comfortable so I use those for clinics & lessons as well.ReplyDelete
I shall check out the piper knit breeches. I think that I will have everything silicone from now on!Delete
I think you'd like the Kerrits tights if you liked these!! Glad they worked out for you - I kinda like the silicone!ReplyDelete
It's been a long time since I tried on a Kerrits item. Last time they didn't fit right but I will try them again.Delete
Oooh I am intrigued now!ReplyDelete
I like reading product reviews because it's good to get opinions of those that use the item.Delete
If I were an english rider, I'd try them out! For now, I'll stick to my jeans :)ReplyDelete
I bet they'd be comfortable on the trail....Delete
I still use my old pairs of Kerrits winter riding pants, but if I get a chance to try these on, I will!ReplyDelete
If you do let me know what you think!Delete
Do they have pockets?ReplyDelete
no pockets. they do have belt loops and I wear my cell phone in a holster anyway.Delete
I'll never wear proper breeches again: ) I got a catalog from Horseware Ireland and they have a full page ad for "riding TIGHTS". Aimed at normal horse people, not endurance riders! This may be the beginning, in Germany, of riding tights!ReplyDelete
