Schockemohle really knows how to make breeches for today's equestrians. I use the two side pockets, one for my phone and one for sugars. It makes retrieving them so much easier. The bling is just the right amount for me. Not so much that it draws your attention away from the rider/horse, yet enough to make the breeches special. Shockemohle really pays attention to the details. The fit is awesome and I like their length. The material is just a tad stiff, though the full seat grip is beautiful and does it's job!
