Jodhpurs for riding?

Didn't know where to put this!!
At the moment I ride wearing jeans but am looking to get a pair of jodhpurs I was wondering what people thought the pro and cons of them are?

Also was wondering what people thought of chapettes and was wondering if anyone where's them here???!!!

I love my breeches (jodphurs) and half chaps (chapettes). I appreciate the extra "grippem" of these items, but you may not need that like I do.
Also, they just look cool! Makes me look like an equestrianne. I guess I am vain enough to want that.

I ride in jeans sometimes but I find my joddies are easy to ride in, well my joddies anyway my friend always complains about hers because hers are sticky bum
I really want a pair of chaps, just to look more professional lol and to keep my cream joddies that bit cleaner

Mate there's a big Horseland sale on RIGHT NOW! Get your butt up to your nearest Horseland store and buy a pair of jods ;)

Otherwise, look up Elixir breeches on Ebay. They are fantastic for the price, I have 8 pairs of them now and ride a hell of a lot, they're certainly lasting!

I can't stand rising in jeans now, jods/breeches don't get in the way of your stirrups, don't bunch up under your leg etc. Definitely worth investing in.

Jods are awesome, and actually not easy to find here in the US as everyone wears breaches, which are shorter and need to be worn with chaps or high boots. Jods are full length and go to your ankle rather than the calf.

The main benefit to jods or breaches is that there is no seam on the inside of your leg, there also tends to be extra material in the grip areas of your leg.

I hate riding in jeans, I hate riding in shorts more as the stirrups leathers beat up my skin, but that inside seam does the same thing.
