    Has anyone else noticed a decline in the quality of Ariats? My original pair lasted like 10 years. I wore them to go swimming and in all sorts of conditions. Held up great, but then the zipper broke. I decided to get a new pair. I got a new pair maybe a year and a half ago, and the sole is already splitting off :(

    I think I'm going to have to check out Mountain Horse. I'm a little irritated at them though because I purchased a Mountain Horse jacket and a year later the zipper is so broken. I can zip it up, but then it just splits open.

    I just don't seem to have luck with zippers I guess.

    As for breeches, I like the Smartpak brand breechs. I have the bradley's now and like them, they just fit a little funky around the waist. I want to get the piper's and try them.

    Another vote for Ariat! I wear Heritage IIIs for paddock work - zip up, synthetic upper, easiest things in the world to maintain and keep clean. Purchased at a holiday sale last year for $89, so guessing that this time of year you can find a similar deal.

    Also sport a pair of Ariat Workforce boots for western riding and heavy barn/property work that I have had for 7 years, paid $110 for at that time, and have taken me through some nasty conditions.

    Green Broke
    I am apparently hard on boots. I love Ariats for their comfort, but the leather does not hold up well for me. I MAY get a year out of them. I have a pair of the barn boots that I had patched, looks horrible, but works. I got them on clearance from somewhere, and ordered ALL they had(I think 4 pair), and this is the last pair.

    Now I wear Muck boots all the time. They aren't cheap either!

    Ariat is hard to beat. Comfortable, almost no break in and durable. Great boot.
    I bought the Cobalt Quantum Performers on clearance from Dover for almost half- price at $99.

    Good luck!

    I would go with ariats definitely, my sister has those and im insanely jealous. I have equistars & then split on toe seams w/in 4 months. & for boots that are easily 100 bucks its not a fun feeling. So I would shy away from those lol
