**** you cheap imported leather!

One of my stirrups snapped yesterday, after only using them once! I'll be returning them today, and buying a new pair.

What are your favourite brands of stirrup leathers?

I saw a new type of fastening that isn't buckles the other day, here's a photo of them.
What do you think?

That's the Wintec sort - I'm not a fan (although some people are), I find them harder to adjust while mounted and the holes can get bigger over time so the t-bar slips through and you lose the stirrup!

I have a nice pair of Aintree leathers that match the Havana colour of my saddle. They never interfere with my leg and are supple but solid.

I have those wintec webbers and love them. No bulk under my leg and I think they are way easier to adjust while mounted.

But remember leather with leather and synthetic with synthetic. So if you have a leather saddle do not use synthetic leathers.

I wasn't a fan of webbers at first but over a few rides I've found them to be more comfortable. They seem to have less bulk.

That is a better design than the Bates webbers I tried. I found the webbers were only good for a narrow range of leg sizes, and I was worried about their strength. It is also common for me to adjust the length on a ride, and that was a pain with them.

I hate webbers :/

No bulk under your thigh but with the webbers I bought to go with my jumping saddle the fastening is ALWAYS under my lower leg and gives me the most awful bruises.

I actually have cheap leather stirrup leathers on my [synthetic!] jumping saddle and I'm having no issues. I'm not a fan of synthetic leathers because the slimline ones are ugly, the not-slimline ones are too bulky, and the suede ones cost a fortune! I do have suede leathers on my dressage saddle [synthetic, full-suede] because anything else would damage my saddle but they came with a saddle that I bought a few years ago.
