We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Breeches I purchase these breeches and they fit like a glove. Comfortable and rides easy...
Date published: 2014-11-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I could wear them all the time. These fit true to size and are comfortable whether you have a long day of riding or are just kicking around at the barn cleaning up. They look great and they make you feel great (yep, your butt will look smaller in these tights!). Get one in every color they have!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tried on - Didn't keep. On my hunt for schooling breeches under $100 I purchased these to try. If they were $30-40 I would have totally kept them, they fit nicely & seemed comfy. However they really are glorified leggings (elastic waistband and all) with knee patches, so I had a REALLY hard time with spending $65 for them when I could get something tailored like the Smartpak Piper for $15 more. Ultimately, they went back to Smartpak (gotta love free return shipping:))

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! I'm a plus sized rider and I was happy to find breeches that actually fit. I also have a circulation problem so a lot of breeches tend to be tight around the ankle. These were not the case. They are a bit thin so I wore spanx under them, but even then they were still comfortable. They were great for the show I used them for too, especially since it was so hot!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fit, but thin I recently purchased these tights on clearance (sliver color). I love the way they fit, very true to size. The material is thinner than expected, which is the only downsize as you can see EVERY curve and flaw.
Date published: 2014-08-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased I hadn't ridden English regularly enough to justify the purchase of riding pants in many years until this summer, and these were the first pair I bought. I purchased the black and, even in this remarkably hot TX weather, they remain comfortably cool. I ended up buying another pair... And then another... And another. I even wear these on my long (20+ miles) trail rides and haven't had any deterioration of the fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kerrits riding tights - love 'em! This is the 4th pair of Kerrits riding tights I've purchased over the years! I hate to ride in any other brand during the summer. Great service from SmartPak, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Summer Breeches for me! These are great summer breeches. However, I will start by saying that I am 5'10" and a slimmer person. The XL fits me perfect with a little wiggle and stretch room. I did buy my first pair through another retailer in person, so I tried on the L and it fit - however, it was too tight-looking on my bum, so I went up a size! Also, they are super long - I have a 34/35" inseam, and they hit about 1" above my ankle bone! These are the only breeches I can wear with paddock boots without any ankle skin showing ;-)I just bought my 2nd pair through SmartPak. My first pair has held up great so far through one summer, and there are no rips, snags, or fabric catches, and no rips or weak points by the knee patch seams. They are perfect for the 90-degree humid summer days in our northern state, and I usually start wearing them after winter when it reaches 65 degrees - so yes, I really can't handle the heat! I usually wear them for at least 3 rides and then wash them. They are a very thin, stretchy material that REALLY breathes. The first time I wore them, I felt like I didn't have anything on! But now I am so used to them that regular breeches feel like winter breeches.They do show undergarment lines slightly, but who cares while riding! I can get away with wearing them at work with a long sweater - they are like leggings but so much more durable. Don't let the thin material fool you and price - they are quite hardy and completely worth it! And this review is coming from someone who never thought she'd spend that much $$ on one pair of riding pants :-) Plus, they are made in the USA.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfy! My daughter loves Kerrits tights -- they are so comfortable. She is about 5'4", 100 pounds, and wears Ladies XS if that helps with sizing.
Date published: 2014-04-28
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for everyone I'm tall and they do run long enough if you size up a size, but that's also because the fabric is very thin and gives in all directions. I returned them before trying to ride in them, as I didn't like the cheap looking fabric and was worried they would not hold up. The thin synthetic material didn't seem like it would be particularly breathable other than by virtue of its lightness and thinness. I have other everyday synthetic breeches that are constructed with better material and are breathable. I will keep looking for a better replacement!
Date published: 2014-04-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice tights, run long I liked these tights. I am 5'5" but I guess my legs are short. The size S are a 30" inseam and this was long for me. I tried the Girls XL which fit better.
Date published: 2014-04-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from favorite!!! These are so amazing and comfy, I wear them around the house after I get home from the barn. I'm tall & plus-sized. 5'9 and I wear a size 2x and they fit me perfectly. They give me nice movement in the saddle, they aren't restricting at all, and they are soft! I have a pair in black and I plan on getting a pair in tan for an upcoming show!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Tight! I've always steered clear of riding tights, but when I started to get my "womanly" curves I tried dozens of pairs of breeches that seemed to be 2" tight throughout my leg, and 6" too big in the waist! A friend of mine uses these, so I went and ordered a medium and large. When they arrived and I tried them on... Oh my gosh!! Let me tell you. These are the most comfortable, figure flattering things you will ever wear! I didn't want to take them off! The seaming on the thigh looks so clean and beautiful, they're stretchier than leggings, and they form to my 28" waist and 39" hips beautifully! For reference the chart says I'm a medium, but I preferred the large. I'm 5'7" and he large is a bit long, but I like that there's less stress on the crotch seam, so hopefully they'll last longer that way.I'm not sure how well they'll hold up, but I'll be enjoying every minute of them until they give out.Now I'm not crazy about that magical cellulite look some riders get (including me) only when they're on a horse, so I'm still nervous to get the tan, but the black is fantastic, and I'm ordering the eggplant with the f-low rise now. Can't wait to get my next pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch I am 6 feet tall and full figured. These fit like a dream. Ordered 2X and fits more like a 1X which is fine. Ample leg length for my long inseam and very comfortable.
Date published: 2013-08-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Comfy and Cool These are great for everyday wear. They aren't super slippery which is a great quality for non full seat pants. I have worn them in 90 degree sun and they are thin enough to keep my legs from over heating. Great pants for the price!
Date published: 2013-06-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from really comfortable I bought these tights to be kind of loose, as I hate tight clothes. The drawstring waist is perfect , as I can cinch it up to fit but have the room I like. I've worn them in 90 degree weather and stayed cool. The tan color look like breeches with half chaps-love them!
Date published: 2013-06-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE KERRITS! My whole family rides and we all wear Kerrits! They are always extremly comfy & the price is manageable.
Date published: 2013-05-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent everyday riding tights! These tights are so comfortable! They have great stretch and really let you move. They're also light weight and nice for summer riding here in Florida. Now that I have them, they're the only riding pants I want!!I can't speak too well for durability since I've only used them twice, but they seem well made and the seams are all double stitched.
Date published: 2013-05-20
Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT flattering! These were sent RIGHT back...as I would have looked better riding in regular fashion leggings. Very thin fabric, shows everything you wouldn't want to show ;).
Date published: 2013-05-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Practice Pants! I use these for lessons. They are the best breeches. Lightweight, breathable fabric that is great in spring, summer, and fall. In winter these are a little thin, so I have the fleece pair for winter. The waistband is small, which is good because I don't like having a thick waistband. There aren't any belt loops, which is fine because these fit me great and I don't use a belt for lessons. The length is perfect, just right. I love all of the color options Kerrits offers, mine are in tan. I definitely will get more in the future!
Date published: 2013-04-12
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hate these Do not buy these! They don't even have belt loops! Thinnest possible material you could wear, very revealing, and cheaply made. They look super cheap too!
Date published: 2013-04-09
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Watch out when dismounting! My tight hooked on a saftey stirrup and tore straightaway.
Date published: 2013-04-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Relief I'm a very plus sized rider, and I have a show coming up. So when I had to order breeches, I was terrified of how it would end up. But I tried these on and they fit! They are flattering, they are comfortable and they look very nice! I'm excited to show in them. Great purchase! I'm not sure of the durability yet, but they feel sturdy!
Date published: 2013-03-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from performance tights are a good fit, priced right... only thing I would have like was a cargo pocket. It should be a standard these days!
Date published: 2012-10-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from tough product So far I'm pleased with the durability of these tights. I ride 3-4 days a week 1-2 horses per day. I have allergies so I wash everything I wear every day I ride. I'm happy with the product and price. I wish there were full seat tights at the same price.
Date published: 2012-09-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable, flattering and well made. I would definitely buy these again. Nice thick fabric, drawstring waist, and plenty of room in the hips and rear.
Date published: 2012-09-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than others at the same price point! I bought these as well Irideon Issential Riding Tights in the same shipment. I definitely prefer these to the Irideon tights. The material is so comfortable, I could sleep in them! They fit true to size and the elastic around the ankle is loose enough to be comfortable. The drawstring at the waist really helps hold them up, which is great because there aren't any belt loops.I haven't used them long enough to comment on the durability but I have been impressed so far. I just throw them into the wash with the rest of my laundry and they come out looking brand new!
Date published: 2012-09-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST Tight! I have many pairs of these...they last and last and are wicked comfortable. The grip is reasonable for tights and they are airy for summer/fall time. In the winter I switch to the fleece version of these, which are also amazing. Inexpensive and worth every dime!
Date published: 2012-07-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great schooling tight for hot summers Even though $60 seems a bit expensive, it's well worth it if you live in a place with terrible summers. These are the first tights I reach for if I'm going to be riding in the middle of the day. If your highs don't exceed 90, then it might be worth it to buy a pair of breeches instead of tights.
