"A friend of mine gave me a pair of Smooth Stride full seat riding jeans. I was skeptical of the weight & heat of the denim material and the most likely, slippery faux suede. I put them aside until my laundry basket was overflowing and the only pair of clean riding pants left hanging in my closet were the Smooth Stride jeans.
I have to tell you that I was amazed! The denim looks heavy duty, but is light and actually cooler than any of my riding pants. Cotton breathes - this makes total sense now that I have totally felt the difference. In the saddle, the faux suede is actually grippier than other synthetics seats and knee patches I own and is just about as grippy as my worn in deerskin full seat pants - but the faux suede breathes too, unlike the deerskin!
The Smooth Stride jeans actually get better with washing, unlike any other riding pant I have owned. They start to take on the "personality" of the rider. The stretch denim has learned my curves and retains the wonderful fit all day without bagging out.
I am now completely spoiled and reserve my Smooth Stride jeans for my longer days, knowing that they are indeed the most comfortable riding pants in the saddle and out of the saddle too.
Thank you Smooth Stride for a great riding pant, at last!"
