I love this forum... I think I may invest in a more expensive pair or two, but I'm going for the Devon Aires! In fact, already found a cheaper pair on ebay.... Another question... how do they fit? Big? Small? Snug? Saggy? Meaning: are my butt cheeks going to be on display if I don't follow my "one size larger" rule?

I actually went up a size (because the one pair of full seat breeches I got was a 28 and it was killing me) so I got a size 30L and they fit great! The longs are a little long and go a little past my ankles but they're very comfy.

I do have to say that I believe they are windproof. When I was cleaning stalls and spreading the manure in the cold and wind, the only parts of me that were cold were my upperbody. My legs were fine.

The fleece usually isn't as stretchy as cotton or other blended breech fabrics, so definitely go up a size if you don't like the skin tight look ;).

Boink and Irideon both have some neat winter tights.

After some quick internet researching, it seems like all winter breeches are the same thing: windproof fleece with a smooth outter layer.
Check for these brands on eBay too. Like I said, I bought my Kerrits tights for $50, which is half the normal price. You can find some good deals. I wear a 28 in breeches so I bought the medium and they fir perfectly.

My only advice is this: don't choose them too warm. As you know on horseback the heat coming up from the horse helps keep you warm. If your breeches are too warm you might get all sweaty and that's the best way to get cold once you're back on your feet. You'll have to dry up completely before feeling warm again.
