HDR vs Crosby leathers
Hi. I own an 11 year old Collegiate Graduate saddle. I've had it for 8 years. When I bought it, I bought Crosby stirrup leathers to go with it. Finally, after 8 years, the leathers are starting to break.
I have looked online and similar 48" Crosby leathers are about $100. But I saw also, on the same sites, that 48" HDR leathers are like $35.
I'm confused. I was under the impression that HDR is far better than Crosby, but the price doesn't mirror that. The HDR leathers are being sold as children's, but that seems to be the only difference.
Does anyone know why the HDR leathers would be so much cheaper? Thanks
