These are excellent boots for riding long distances. I've read about a few people who ripped and tore these, but these are hunting boots. They are strapped for comfort, and that's the way you should wear them. My summer boots are S&S Moment of truth (white & black), and I can wear them all day in comfort. These are racing boots, and should be worn comfortably (not super tight). They fit me with minor adjustment, and that may be the key. You must adjust the length of the strap to the buckle. It doesn't take long, and just make sure you can walk with them slipping on your feet, and no tighter. I highly recommend these for the sport rider who also rides long distance.
I have wanted a thigh bag for years and finally bought this one. I blinked and POOF, it was here! The size is generous - probably fits size 22 comfortably. The thigh strap can be adjusted by using the loops on the side of the bag. Plenty of room for money, smartphone, lipstick, etc. :) You won't regret this purchase.
Good style, sufficient pockets, cotton material is thick but comfortable. Sizing is way off for waist and inseam, even after consulting the CSR. Definitely need a belt. The stretch gussets at the back are really not necessary.
