|Eventer Tight from Dover Saddlery|
The Stickyseat Eventer Tights feature a pattern of small silicone dots that run from the knee patch area to the back of the thigh. This segmented placement of sticky dots allows the fabric to move and flex with you. Some of the major complaints you'll hear about traditional full seat breeches is that the leather or suede seat is too restrictive and can make you uncomfortably hot and sweaty. Those types of problems just don't happen with a pair of Stickyseats by Equestrienne. Those little dots do a great job of keeping you in place when you're on a spooky horse or just need a little extra something to hold on while going cross country or riding through the rain.
The pair I have is a 67% cotton, 28% nylon, and 5% spandex fabric blend in a pull on style with the "Eventer Tight" silicone dot pattern. This combination makes for a comfortable, lightweight schooling breech that's great for spring and summer. I wouldn't consider this fabric blend quite show ring ready but it's totally acceptable for schooling, clinics and lessons. My main reasoning for that is the high amount of cotton pulls the lederbalsam right out of your saddle and leaves an interesting print on your bum. That said, Stickyseat has a wide variety of fabrics to choose from so I would suggest picking up their latest PerformSport fabric with a high rayon content or their soft and fluffy Powerstretch Fleece winter tights.

Next week I'll be reviewing the Ariat Challenge Contour field boot. I've had mine for just over a year so I'll let you know how much they've dropped, where they've stretched, and how they've held up. Until next week, happy riding!
