Our reviewer found these jodhpurs not only good value but also comfortable and flattering
I sampled these jodhpurs in a size 26″ (UK size 10), regular length, in black with red stitching.
On first impression, the simplistic design of the jodhpurs appealed to me. They are high-waisted with a fairly wide waistband, feature deep pockets (without a zip) and streamlined leg with self fabric seat.
They were a comfortable fit without being too baggy in my usual size. I am 5’6″ and the length was perfect.
The fabric has a high-quality feel and is the ideal thickness – not so thin that you become cold or feel unsupported, but not really thick and overly bulky. According to the product’s description on the Harry Hall website it is finished with a finish that has a high level of self cleansing oil and water repellency, as well as high abrasion resistance and wash permanence.
Indeed my pair does seem to have stayed cleaner for longer and appeared to catch less hairs than my usual black jodhpurs. They have washed well and look pretty much as good as new, bar one point which I will come to.
The jodhpurs are easy to fasten with a zip and hook and bar at the top. There is also the option to wear a belt as there are belt loops around the waistband. As it is winter I have been wearing longer tops over the high waist and this has been very comfortable and kept me warm.
My only criticism of the jodhpurs is the reflective print above the knee cracked on their first wear. They still look ok and is hardly noticeable (see picture), but stops them looking brand new. Personally I would do away with this feature if I had designed the jodhpurs as I don’t think it adds much.
Despite this small fault I would still recommend these jodhpurs to a friend. They are very good value, comfortable, flattering and offer a good quality fabric.
A great staple for an equestrian's wardrobe — comfortable and flattering
