Alternatives to Winter Breeches (Under Armour + Jeans?)
I've heard of some riders using products from a company called Under Armour to help keep themselves warm during the winter months, but I haven't spoken to anyone first hand who has used their products. With so many different styles to choose from, I'm completely lost and hoping someone here has some insight into their product lines.
What I'm looking for is an alternative to long johns to wear under jeans, but it gets pretty bitter out where I live and I'm starting to debate if even jeans would even be sufficient. I have never worn or even tried on breeches... something about a skinny guy in breeches that doesn't seem like a great idea to me, but a few friends have suggested that I invest in a good pair from Irideon or even Mountain Horse.
The local tack shop where I'm staying for Christmas doesn't even have any male breeches in stock, so I'm not sure what to do since I can't try any on. I suspect the smaller tack shop back where I live also has limited male breeches which brings me to another question... are there any glaringly obvious differences between male and female winter breeches outside of the fly?
