I am a big girl and usually have a hard time finding show gear that suits me, however these are stellar. They are very light and easy to maneuver in. The straps take a bit of getting used to, but once you figure them out they are easy to adjust and can be done solo without any trouble. All the connections and hardware seem quite well made and have held up to a few long trips so far. I think the price and quality are great, they make me a little sad that spring has arrived.
