So I finally headed out to the tack shop this afternoon to try on some breeches. I have several pairs that are on their last leg so I was hoping to get like, 4 or 5 pairs. All they had were Ariats and Kerrits, which were both about $90-110 range. Yikes, don't know if my credit card bill can handle that this month! After some quick internet researching, it seems like all winter breeches are the same thing: windproof fleece with a smooth outter layer. Are the cheaper brands (Devon-Aires, TuffRiders, etc) worth buying? I'd rather just splurge and buy something that will last more then a winter, but I'm all about saving if I can.
-the buying kids breeches idea is a great one as I normally buy kids stuff if I can, but breeches are one thing I always buy in adult sizes. I have this strange aversion to breeches that show off your individual butt cheeks so I always buy a size up so they'll fit a little saggy. I know, I'm weird.
