    I like my Caldene ones I bought when I was about 18, I'm 34 now :eek:

    Needless to say they have a saggy bum to match mine :D

    I have bought others in the past 18 months but still like my tatty old Caldene's and only wear the others if the old favs are in the wash :rolleyes:

    Bought a navy blue pair from tally-ho 4 years ago. They've survived being worn nearly all the time since then and have withstood 3 1/2st of weight fluctuation (i went up 3st, then down 3 1/2 :rolleyes::)) they're warm in winter, cool in summer, nice and stretchy so comfy for long hacks and they've held their colour amazingly well (although they're starting to look a little purpley). There is a hole where if you think about it, it would be most logical to get a hole considering how you sit on a horse :eek: but you can't see it at all and a bit of DIY sewing and they're right as rain now! They're a good length and although i keep buying new pairs, i can't bring myself to throw them away and keep digging them back out of the drawer! If i could find an identical pair, but new again, i'd get them no question; they were a bargain for £25 and they've totally paid for themselves :D!

    Saddlecraft make the comfiest cotton/lycra ordinary jodhs I think
    Katy jods from Equestrianclearance are really hard wearing and the ones I got (10 pairs for £60, all black) are quite nylony on the outside but actually soft brushed inside. They are my day to day ones
    I like the upper ranges from Horka but do find seams split (and not due to me trying to get into sizes too small!)

    I got some cheap joddys on a stall at a show (no brand) for £7 (we made him bargain lol) and they have lasted 2 1/2 years so far with continuous wear.
    they are comfy, and a good colour- yellow with black check :D i used to have yellow wellies aswell so when i rode out they always saw me!
