What is the difference between full seat and knee patch breeches? Why are full seat so much more expensive? I've found a couple pairs that I like but they were all over $100! I've never spent $100 on a single piece of clothing
I agree with you, I would never spend that much on a piece of clothing - I have more important things to put that money on, like the care of my horse and comps.
Anyways - I cannot stand Full Seats. I have tried on quite a few different pairs when Millbrook Tack was still open in Grand Rapids Michigan...and every single one of them were bulky down in the crotch area, frustrating.
I even tried to ride in them, and I dislike them.
I love my pull on tights - Kerrits and Tough Riders. I like the Knee Patches over full seats personally - but that's my preference. Full seats just don't fit me right, and I don't like how stuck in the saddle they make me feel.
HOWEVER I do, I really do - like the looks of Kerrits new tights, the Breathe Tight #40248 and #50131 - for $99.......but would I ever buy them? Not for that price.
You can find great deals on Ebay
and even go to local tack sales - you never know what you will find.
