I was amazed at the quality of this surcingle at the price. I had a cheap, web one where the non-roller buckles would get stuck on the hole grommets and it was soooo frustrating. So, I had resigned myself to spending the money and getting a good quality one. When I saw this particular model, I thought it can't be much better than the one I have at this price, but then in reading the reviews, everyone who had bought one said it was great quality and value. So, I took the chance and didn't regret it. The slight elastic between the leather pieces allows for give without slippage. The billets are leather and are easy to buckle and adjust. There are enough D rings to be able to attach long lines and/or side reins in whatever configuration you need. I am very, very pleased with this purchase and have already recommended it more than once.

This surcingle is good quality and the blue fabric with the brown leather is attractive. Haven't had it long enough to comment on the durability, but I was happy with the first few uses and expect it to hold up well. Lots of rings so you can place attachments at different levels depending on what you need.

I was quite surprised by this when it arrived. It has elastic in the surcingle on both sides, and the rings are very well placed. The only reason I gave it 4 stars on quality, is the leather could be a smidgen better, but really picky! Great purchase, excellent price. Definitely would recommend.

Good quality with leather pads. It is light weight which works for me. I agree with the other positive reviewers.
It also arrived quickly which is great because when I order something I am usually in a hurry to use it.

Used to attach side reins to girth - makes lunging much easier.

I am really happy with this surcingle. It's a gorgeous color and the leather is super nice. I'm not sure if I like the elastic or not only because I'm not sure if it's stretchy enough, but I've never had a problem with the surcingle slipping so I'm not too concerned. The only thing that didn't seem up to par were the buckles as they seem cheap compared to the otherwise great craftsmanship.
