Stirrup leathers

How can you tell if stirrup leathers are good quality? I might possibly buy new stirrup leathers on eBay, since the prices are great. I just wanted to know if there are name brands I should get, if if I should just look at the quality of it from the pictures? I've had a stirrup leather break while riding and it was not a fun experiance.

Im not sure about stirrup leathers - re purchasing some, but I do know a couple I stay away from.

PVC - the split with use and are difficult to adjust once this has happened, and

Status (not sure of your equivalent but its webbing) - it frays around the holes and is prone to stretching.

Just my experience.

Sorry I can't offer any helpful advice.

Remember you get what you pay for. If it sounds too good to be true...probably is.

I got the wintec "leathers" to go with my wintec saddle - - love 'em!

Good luck

I've found with stirrup leathers you really get what you pay for. I've bought a huge range of different prices and quality and it's soooo worth it to just pay for the good ones and have them last a long time. My personal favorites are the stitched and lined kind. They have very minimal stretching and last significantly longer.

Okay, thanks! That was all really helpful and I'll keep your replies in mind when searching for a pair of leathers.

If quality isnt part of what you are looking for, I would stick to the same brand as your saddle.

Well, I'm more looking for quality. I'm going to be switching the leathers between two saddles, one is a Stubben and I'm not sure what the other is. I don't really care if the color doesn't match or anything.
