I have worn the Aztec Diamond Black Technical Stretch Riding Leggings’ several times now for a variety of activities around the yard. I normally wear full seat breeches and have never thought about trying the relatively new to the scene riding leggings as, to be honest I saw them as a more youthful product and not for someone now in their 40’s however I am always willing to try something new and am happy to say that overall I have been pleasantly surprised!
Having worn items from Aztec Diomand before it came as no shock to me that the quality and fit of these leggings was spot on. I was lucky enough to be given a pair of small black leggings, normally being between a size 6 & 8 they fit perfectly. I found them extremely comfortable and more like a second skin which was lovely as some of the heavier material breeches can feel tight around the knee, or across the crotch when riding. I could move around easily and found absolutely no restriction in my movement whatever I was doing. They move with your body and stay in place whatever you are doing, they also stay true to their original shape after any movements and washing. The leggings have clean, flattering lines and felt elegant to wear, I can honestly say that they will suit all ages and are not just for the young.
I first wore them for quite an intense dressage lesson where both me and my horse got quite hot and sweaty. Initially, I got quite hot in the crotch area whilst riding as the whole lesson was completed with my bum firmly on the saddle, however, I didn’t feel sticky or damp and the heat soon went once I got off and managed to get some air circulation. The second time I wore them I went out for a long hack. I was comfy throughout my ride and even though the weather is getting a little cold I felt that my temperature was regulated. I also found the phone pocket particularly useful as it was quicker and easier to get to my phone without having to unzip my jacket pocket where I usually carry it. The leggings also came up with top marks when I wore them for the third time and decided to clip whilst wearing them, the hair just fell off and didn’t stick to them at all, I got into quite a few positions whilst clipping and they still stayed in shape and felt great.
The leggings are great value for money however I would happily pay a little bit more so have the subtle grip system that they already have over the full seat instead of just the knee area. It’s always good to feel as secure as possible in the saddle.
Overall these leggings were a treat to wear and I will definitely be keeping them in my equestrian wardrobe and may be purchasing a few more pairs.
