KERRITS PRODUCTS PROVIDE A FIRM GRIP

Being tight to the tack is the goal of every rider and Kerrits’ Griptek gets riders there faster. GripTek was created for pros and amateurs alike, offering additional security in the seat, leg or hands, where riders need it most.

“GripTek fiber is more environmentally friendly than using leather,” said Kerri Kent, owner and designer for Kerrits Equestrian Apparel. “You can feel good that no animals were harmed in the creation of the garment. And unlike leather, after washing, GripTek looks brand new.”

Kerrits first introduced GripTek in the original Sit Tight, using GripTek for the full seat. The response was overwhelming. Riders loved the “stick like glue” security the tight offered. It was not long before the requests for gloves and half-chaps made of this fabric started rolling in. The GripTek Glove and GripTek Gaitor were born.

The GripTek glove is lightweight and breathable, featuring a no-slip grip so that the rider can keep contact with the reins even when they are wet from horse sweat or rain.

The water-repellant GripTek Gaitors secure the lower leg while riding, keeping the leg comfortable and dry no matter what the weather conditions.

The Sit Tight Supreme, Sit Tight Lite, GripTek Glove and GripTek Gaitor are all offered year-round as staples in the Kerrits collection. The Sit Tight Supreme retails for $109; the Sit Tight Lite retails for $99; The GripTek Glove retails for $26 and the GripTek Gaitor retails for $79.
