English Riding Pants/breeches Help

Hey everyone,

My old every day riding pants are getting worn out and I've had to patch them up a few times. It is time for some new ones. I was looking for the same pair that I have, as they have lasted me 4+ years of riding, so I went to my local tack store where I bought them, but they don't have my size. I have asked them to order me a pair, and they said they would. That was 3 months ago, and I've yet to hear anything, despite asking. I've given up waiting. What I have now are Dublin. Beyond that I don't remember what else they are called. They are the typical tan color with knee patches, but not full seat, and side zip. I've looked through google as well as Amazon and can't seem to find them for sale. :( :( :(

I decided to give up my search and try a new brand. However, I'm constantly at my barn riding alone, and because of that, I need to keep my cell on me. For this reason my riding pants -must- have pockets.

All this to say, does anyone know of a good quality pair of riding pants that side zip (I dislike pull on) and have pockets, made by any company??? Please let me know what you all are wearing.

Look around online for ones like your old ones. I hate those pull up ones too, but that's what I have now, a few pairs, kerrits, Christmas gifts from my horsey friends & relatives. Must've been a sale on somewhere, I got 2 pairs!

My preferred 'regular' breeches are made by On Course. They're not expensive, and hold up well. They come in both side and front zip, and have a front pocket.

Have you considered getting an armband for your phone, instead of trying to carry it in your breeches? It'll be out of the way, but within easy reach if you need it.

They're not side zip, but they are front zip and have a pocket.

I've had these for a few months. I'm VERY picky about breeches, and I've been happy with these, especially for the price. And the pocket has come in very handy!

Thank you very much everyone! I'm pretty picky too. I have looked online for something similar, but I just can't seem to find them. I'm not exactly sure why Dublin is so hard to buy. :P Your advice is really helpful.
