Opinions on riding pants

Hey everyone

So, I just bought Kerrits brand flow-rise riding tights in denim: http://www.tackroominc.com/images/Fl...t-Denim-sm.jpg

And I have to say that for a girl who is a but more on the curvy side of things they fit comfortably! I am 5'6" 160lbs. I do recommend them! However I bought them in a large and might get an extra large when I buy them in black next paycheck ;)

But anyway, does anyone else have any opinions on breaches/riding tights? I have always had a hard time finding comfortable things to wear riding....

Tough Rider fits me pretty well. Cotton Naturals fits me mediocre.

How much are you looking to spend? I'm currently in love with Equine Coutoure for schooling. They retail around $75 but I get them for under $60 at my local tack shop. I've owned Kerrits in the past and really like them as well.

Riding Sport's side-zip low-rise fit me great - comfy too. I get compliments on those all the time.
I think I have the same Kerrits tights you have. Aren't they the greatest? Feels like I'm wearing nothing.

I bought a pair of Equine Couture back in August and LOVE them. I'm hoping I get at least one more pair for Christmas!

As a male english rider, it is nearly impossible to find semi-inexpensive breeches. However, my pair of knee patch cotton tuff-riders work well and were pretty cheap. I am thinking about getting a pair of full seat mens tuffrider breeches, so yes I would recommend tuffrider!!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Kerrit's flow rise tights. They are so comfy and soft and keep me cool in the winter.

For winter riding I wear the Performance Breeches by Riding sport. I'm a curvy gal myself and these fit nicely and have plenty of room for the junk in my trunk. LOL! I got mine from Dover for $40.

I'm a huge fan of Kerrits, as well as Irideon and Royal Highness.
