Bradley Knee Patch Breeches by SmartPak
Not for me
I tried them because one of my best friends loves them. They're just not my cup of tea.... I'm a Tailored girl!

Nice pair of versatile breeches
The Bradley breeches are very comfortable, and good looking. The material is lightweight, yet thick enough to smooth over the legs without showing every flaw. I am an instructor, so wear my breeches all day almost every day, and these have been excellent for wearing--I don't want to take them off at the end of the day. The sock fit at the bottom makes putting my tall boots on a breeze, while still looking nice with paddock boots or sandals on when I'm done working. The pockets are wonderfully deep and keep contents where they belong, not floating toward the inseam as I have experienced with other breeches. I have only worn these breeches for a few hours, so can not attest to their durability, will update in a few months--after a hard summer of teaching, training, riding, and competing. I love that they are versatile enough to wear for schooling yet elegant enough I feel comfortable wearing them in the show ring--and I appreciate being able to school in the same clothes I show, makes the showing less stressful, not worrying about your attire. I would definitely recommend these to a friend looking for a pair of quality and affordable breeches.

very nice for the price
I really like the material and the euroseat, my only complaint is that the waist is a tad big and gaps, so I have to wear a tightened belt to cinch them.

Don't stay in place
I got these breeches for Christmas, and have mixed opinions of them. I wear a 28 in the TS breeches and ordered the same in these, but think I should have gone for the long. I am 5'9" and wear these breeches all day at work, and the more I walk around, the more they slide down my legs. I believe the combination of the slightly looser low-rise waist and the tight sock cuff that cause the pants to fall down. Maybe these would fit better on someone without any calves who only wears these for a couple hours. So far, they have been cool on the warm spring days we have been having though.

I wanted to love these breeches, but I'm sending them back. The outer material seemed durable (lots of nylon) and the inner material was soft, but I wanted more stretch. The waist was gappy at the back and tight in the front; it's not often that I find breeches that are simultaneously loose in the waist and give me a muffin top at the same time. I'll stick to my Tailored Sportsmans.

If you have a butt order up
I love these breeches, they are my new faves! I have all the colors, but beware! Because they are low rise if you have a butt order up at least one size if you don't your butt will keep falling out of the back of the breeches. Other than that, they are flattering and wear like iron, I rode in them for days and days and didn't wash them to see how they would hold up. Then after washing them in leather therapy and hanging dry they looked just as they did out of the bag..Very nice love these!
