Pikeur’s official description
Pikeur Rain Breeches are waterproof over-breeches that are suitable for ladies, men and teenagers with a full-length side zip. These can be pulled on quickly over normal breeches with additional popper fastenings for width adjustment.
Tamsin’s first impressions
They reminded me of racing breeches!
Overview of performance
These overtrousers have a very handy design for competition purposes, as they were very easy to remove without getting off the horse. I tried a white pair and they washed well and stayed white. They are made of very thin fabric, so whatever colour the breeches you are wearing underneath will show through.
Tamsin’s likes and dislikes
A very good pair of over competition breeches when the weather is bad, but as an everyday winter pair of over trousers, they were too lightweight.
These an ideal waterproof layer to use over competition breeches at shows
