Look good, but prepare for abrasions
Two things: one, I swore I'd not order Horze apparel again (so shame on me,) and two, BUT THEY'RE CUTE!
So, yes, they're cute. They fit well & deliver the promised higher waistband. But... they have a problem seam. I wouldn't have written this review (thinking this was just somehow my weird anatomy,) but someone else noticed the *same thing! Beware the undercarriage. I will be sending these to a seamstress friend to try to put a patch over the 4-WAY SEAM right under your lady bits. I can't ride in them again til then.
Also- they say polyester, but I was like whoa, like my grandpa's polyester leisure suit kind of polyester. Not a high-end finish, although if not for the seam, I'd have been like, yeah, that's what I paid for.

Nice and warm!
I love these breeches--the waist is nice and high and does not gap, the legs are a great length (I usually order longs, but these are perfect!), the silicone is grippy, and these breeches keep me warm on cold winter riding days. I wish they came in more colors!

Nice breeches with one major downside
These breeches have a nice high waist, no gapping and true to size. They have a good amount of stretch and are about as thick and warm as they can be while maintaining a nice stretchy tights feel. Very comfortable for moving around on the ground.
However, they have a very prominent inner seam (see picture). It’s not noticeable walking around, but while riding, this seam is not comfortable. It sticks up significantly and rubs uncomfortably after riding more than a few minutes. I’m going to try to sew it down or even trim it, but I won’t be riding in these again until I figure something out, or maybe get some padded bike shorts to wear underneath.
Again, these are otherwise very nice and well made breeches, and I’d definitely give them 5 stars if not for this issue. My other breeches all have that inner seam sewn down so it’s nice and flat, and I wish these did the same.

Warm, Comfortable and nice HIGH waist
I'm very picky about the fit of my pants and breeches. I struggle to find breeches that are high waisted enough and don't gap in the waist. They gap a little in the waist but they stay up without a belt. They're the perfect balance between supportive and stretchy. These are thick through the calf and ankle, but that is to be expected with a winter article. The full seat is not "too sticky" where it comes down in the crotch while I ride. Very pleased with these and will definitely purchase again! For reference I'm 5'6 - 124 and leggy with a butt.
25-26" waist. I ordered a 22R.
I would love to know what other breeches are comparable in fit. Since transitioning to English, i've been running a long game of "order, try on and return".

Amazing I love them
I got these in the mail the other day and have already rode in them! They are very grippy and contours my body amazingly!!! They are also very warm and true to size. I have long legs and normally order a size 26L and the 26Rs came to my ankles. Overall very happy and will definitely buy these again.
