Yeah I think zips are easier to tuck in your shirt with. I have the tendency to tuck in my shirt every time I ride and I always get looks because my barn is pretty casual at home
And I always get zipped because to save money I buy show breeches on sale and use them as schooling and show. All the show breeches I've had are alot tougher than schooling breeches I've had, so they last awhile. The only downside is they can get a little thick for Floridas 100+ degree summers, especially condsidering I do horribly in the heat. Really why do I live here?
