SmartShape Base Layer Tights
Another good SmartPak item
This is just what I needed on extra cold days at the barn. The fit is good and supportive, but not restricting. I'm hoping the durability will be good. I only wish that SmartPak would support Made in the USA and find a manufacturer here in our own country for its branded items. In addition, the price was higher than I would normally pay for an layer like this. I probably wouldn't mind spending so much if it was made in the US.

fabulous and warm
Love these tights. They are true to size and offer warmth without being bulky. They move with you while you're riding. Also a nice way to cover panty lines!

I thought from description that they were heavier than they are. They are nice but are a very light base layer.

I put these on right after they arrived because I already knew they were warm and I was getting ready to ride. I'm extremely impressed! The fabric makes it very easy to slide even tight breeches and jeans on over them, and they have grippers on the inside of the hems that hold them nicely in place so that they don't ride up on you while pulling on clothing over them. I nearly didn't purchase them because they were somewhat pricey, but I'm certainly glad now that I did! If you do a lot of Winter riding, these are worth the money - especially if you wear breeches. An excellent investment!

By habit I am not a fan of laying under breeches, it normally gives me a feeling of wearing diapers so I normally just buy the super duper thick Tropical Rider Winter breeches. Now though I can wear this baselayer under my breeches have complete mobility (even when jumping as well as dressage) and not have the diaper effect. I don't get chaffed or rubbed either which happens MANY times due to annoying placements of seams! This is a great product with absolutely no complaints. I stayed warm on one of the windiest and coldest days here and just had normal summer weight breeches with the "set" of baselayers on and was perfectly fuzzy warm.

Comfort and warmth without bulk
These base layer tights are so soft and comfortable without adding any bulk... good length and fit. Kept me warm throughout a December clinic day.
