    I would jump it if it had a solid top to it (like a small log or a pole going across the tops of the posts.) Otherwise I wouldn't.

    I'm 5'2" and have never had a problem with them bunching up. I ride in the full seats, not knee patches, but they're probably the ONLY breeches that don't bunch up for me. Any with a velcro bottom...

    I really like the full seats. I do need a belt with them because they'll gap in the back, but other than that no complaints. They wash nicely and hold up well. I haven't had any pilling issues, and I...
