I have had a pair of these breeches for 2 years now and I ride in them WEEKLY. I run around, work around the barn, and ride sometimes for hours on end. You wanna know what? Not one single stitch had come out of place. It doesn't get stained easily either which is a bonus. When I wash these they look and feel like a brand new pair of pants. When I school my horse away from home I almost always wear these pants. They're comfortable and the full seat really helps my stickability in the saddle. Because these are a tad on the pricey side, I would recommend these for anyone that rides fairly often.
