    Drat. I was going to ask if you wanted mine. I have a pair of lined full seat tights. But I am only 5'3". I haven't worn them for a few years but I don't recall them being really long!

    Thanks for offering, mls! I appreciate that!

    Yeah, I'm very tall and with long legs (therefore problems to find saddles to fit my butt + legs combination, and always L(ong) on breeches).

    I bought a pair of winter kerrits from someone on here, unfortunately they are too long and too big, Rode in them once hoping I could make it work but couldn't They are a large, long. Here are the pics from the person I bought them from Kerrits pictures by jklfarm - Photobucket
    And the size chart Performance Equestrian Apparel | Tech Fit | Size Chart | kerrits.com - KerritsI have a pair of pull on kerrits that are a large and are supper stretchy so they fit, I was hoping these would fit also but they are zip up so not as stretchy. They are super warm tho!

    I'm going to be the black sheep here! I'm not a fan of the way kerrits fit... Granted, they do seem to be warm, but they kind of feel like a "cheaper" brand to me.

    I have some ariats and I LOVE them! So toasty! I am also currently obsessed with Mountain Horse. I have winter boots, coat, breeches, the whole nine yards in that brand! Love it!

    Eliz, I have Mt Horse boots and gloves (the latter were really cheap). But their pants and jackets are way too expensive IMHO. I do ride in just usual warm fleece pants from either Boscov's or Kohl's in winter (and I don't care how I look really), but I need something for possible show and may be lessons.

    As for Kerrits, I think as with every brand it depends on model. I have pull-ons by Kerrits I really like (they are very thin, so great to ride in hot summer), but I didn't like some breeches by them. In any case I going to try so will see!

    The one pair of winter breeches I have are ariat and I love them. They're slightly long for me (i'm 5'3") so idk how that would work for you...

    Thanks, crim! So far the plan is to go to Dover either tomorrow or on Fri. So I'll try on all they have there (in my price range)! :)

    I have irideon, I don't remember what the winter ones are specifically called but I've ridden in them while it's 20 below and never been cold! I absolutely love them. They're fleecy and warm on the inside, and thick but not bulky at all.

    Thanks, lady. Yes, I've seen those in catalog yesterday too.

    Folks, has anyone tried Rider Choice brand? They are cheap, but I do remember using pads by them and they were not durable really.

    Just want to give an update... Went to Dover yesterday and after trying like 10 different ones I ended up with irideon brand. Very cozy. Now have to wait for the not-so-wet weather to try them on! Lol!
