Oh, haha. Over here for lower levels, you can get away with short boots and full grain leather gaiters.
I have Kerrits Sit Tight Supremes. I can honestly say that, I don't find them all that breathable. IMO they are not good to be riding in on a hot day. I normally use them doing SJ and XC as they keep you really secure in the saddle even in the wet. I do really like wearing them... Just not in summer.
I use my Dublin Prime Performance Breeches for Dressage and those super hot days that I can't stand the sweaty feeling my Kerrits breeches give me. They are mostly cotton and have a mesh pannel for the calf, so your legs don't get too hot with socks and boots on. I find the fit quite flattering too :)
