Just over 2 months ago I was lucky enough to snag a pair of Lund Saddlery stirrup leathers. You might remember posts last year about my Millbrook stirrup leathers. While I did love the design of those leathers nothing compares to calfskin. Given my past experience with the Lund products waiting for their leathers to come out was a no brainer.
Price: $90 USD – At $90 cheaper than my CWD and $60 cheaper than my Millbrook leathers this pricing is pretty incredible. You can’t even get Marcel Toulouse leathers for under $100 and trust me – the quality is much nicer with Lund.
Review: When considering new leathers I knew that I wanted to go back to lined calfskin. A stirrup leather can be as innovative as you want but form needs to follow function. Being perpetually paranoid my leathers would be unevenly stretch or that they would rub my saddle got old pretty fast.
The Lund leathers are a classic style with a nice flat profile. The leathers are nylon lined without being bulky like some brands tend to end up. Another thing to love is that they take oil beautifully. The orange might be alarming out of the box. The bright side is it gives you the ability to perfectly customize them to suit your needs. I still need to put another coat on mine but every night I have wanted to my neatsfoot oil has been rather solid due to the temps.
Bottom Line: I don’t know about you but it kind of kills my soul to think about dropping almost $200 on stirrup leathers. When you find out there are leathers just as nice (if not nicer) for less than 50% of the price… Well I don’t know how you could resist!
Best of all is that if you click here there is still a chance to enter and win a pair of these beauties!
