On Course Cotton Naturals Side Zip
Favorite show breeches
These have been my favorite show breeches for several years now. They are fairly thick, which I haven't had a problem with (and helps if you forget your non-patterned show undies!) - and I'm usually pretty sensitive to overheating. Easy to move around in, if a tad loose over the hips. Sturdy and wash well.

Good, but not for summer!
I bought these in store - I wish I had seen the reviews saying how hot they are! Overall, I like these - they're very comfy, and should hold up well. However, I don't recommend riding in them in weather above 80 degrees - they don't feel heavy, but they are insanely hot. I was sopping within about 15 mins!
I look forward to wearing these again when the weather gets cooler!

Love my On Courses!
I love these breeches in spite of all of their flaws. I have had mine for years, and yes, the stiching in the waisband is completely gone and they're thick and 100% unflattering. I dont know why I like them; maybe it's because they're indestructable and cheap and Im not afraid to get quic silver etc on them. I like the thickness cause you can't see butt jiggle or panty lines which is nice when you're riding all day. I also like the thickness because they don't tear on nail holes or splintered wood like other breeches I've owned. I suppose they are a little warmer than Ariat Microfibers, but it's never bothered me. They have a very long crotch which looks funny when you ride, so I don't show in these breeches. They are also very strecthy and snugger fitting then the Tailored Sportsmans so I don't think they look as good in the show ring. But for being at home, these are my go to.

Not For Summer
These are very thick breeches; they'll be fine for fall & winter, but NOT summer! I thought that cotton breeches would be cooler. Boy, was I wrong.
Plus, if you sweat or get rained on or sprayed with the hose, these breeches will hold the moisture forever. Doing barn chores in wet, soggy breeches is no fun!

I normally have excellent luck with anything from oncourse, so I was shocked when I put these breeches on and immediately as I pulled them up the seem next to the knee patch split a little bit. I thought, maybe a fluke. I got on and rode and had to quit in the middle because the seem running up the inside of the breeches split and was held together in just a few places. They looked great on me and felt good, but the quality was horrible. They definately are not for warm weather either, because the cloth was heavy.
