    Default Favorite "T-bar" stirrup leathers?

    My bates webbers have finally given up the ghost, and I'm thinking it's time to upgrade rather than buying another pair of the Bates. I've got my eye on the Prestige Ideal leathers, but would really like to hear if others have opinions on any T-bar stirrups other than the Wintec/Bates versions.

    Prestige! Trumbull Mountain also carries some from Frank Baines, but I haven't personally used them. http://www.trumbullmtn.com/store/fit.../t-bar-28-blk/

    Definitely upgrade. I had the Bates, and there is no comparision to the Prestige.

    Anyone know manufacturers that make them in brown (other than bates)?

    Prestige does. You'll have to look around because not everyone carries brown, but they are available.

    Heads up that it's a lighter brown. If your saddle is a dark havana, you may actually want black.

    I too have the Prestige and am quite happy with them. I got mine from Equusnow I believe. I have them in short as I'm 5'4" and I still have 5 holes longer I can go.
