Nydia Reviews the Musto Printed Breeches
Along with keeping a busy competition schedule, a strict training regimen, and running after her two little girls, we also tasked Nydia with also putting a pair of Musto’s Printed Breeches through their paces. Here’s how they performed.
These breeches are designed for comfort and style. They benefit from a superior comfort fit in the saddle. With a Lycra double layer insert for all the stretch you need to stay comfortable. Silicone grip print on the knees and seat supply exceptional grip in the saddle to keep you secure.
Being a busy mum of two with two jobs I need a really versatile yet tough pair of breeches which can be worn with a pair on trainers to run around leading Rosie on her pony or to a lesson and look really smart. I tend to be in them all day and I’ve tested these Musto printed breeches to the max and in all conditions.
I won’t beat around the bush as they say… I love them! I’m not very keen on the modern ‘riding tights’ – I’m a traditional girl and when I saw them I was a little worried they may be too modern. However they feel fantastic. They are really flattering and comfortable, with a flash of colour and contouring to give them real style. I’m a huge fan of a silicone seat but you do not want so much grip that you can’t move with the horse. Musto have got the grip just right. When jumping I feel really secure in the saddle but can move freely.
They’re also a super length, not too long that they’re bulky around the ankle and because they’re super stretchy they fit snugly around my calf so my boots fit perfectly. I’ve washed them a few times and they still come out looking like new. It also seems that over the past 6 weeks we’ve had every season possible and they have adapted so well. They’re warm and protect you from the wind when it’s cold and wet, yet I’ve just worn them for a lesson in 25°c and I’ve stayed cool. They come up true to size and don’t sag after a few wears.
Most of all they’re really comfy and easy to wear. They are a little jazzy for my normal attire, but I’ll overlook that and move with the times. These are fantastic breeches and well worth the investment. Highly recommended.
