My husband has a pair of Frank Baines Tbar leathers and they are just lovely. They are super soft caflskin, easy to adjust, and well made with a strong nylon core. He got them in 2013 and has beed riding in them since then, and they look new. I have been using Mundy webbers and I like them, but they are very difficult to adjust the length.
This hasn’t been a big problem, but now my husband and I are trading off horses frequently and switching leathers or adjusting my Mundy leathers every time is difficult. Especially since we use full saddle covers. I went to buy myself a pair of Baines leathers like my husbands and found they aren’t being made any more!!!
I’m lookin for brand recommendations on a nylon core calfskin Tbar that is durable? I’ve tried the Bates and even though I’m easy on tack a hole ripped out after about 7 months of regular riding.
I appreciate the recommendations!
