As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. 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 Love everything about them! I bought another pair of these a couple weeks ago after wearing my first pair almost every ride for the last 8 months. I love them and all the color choices they have for you to pick from! Being used almost every ride (I ride 5-7 times a week) for 8 months they held up REALLY well. The only thing that really happened is the knee patch started to show its use

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice breech, weird fit I loved how these breeches looked, but the fit was odd. Next time I purchase I will try sizing up to see if it fits better, but for now I will have to stick with my Kerrits brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Breeches I got the grey and turquoise breeches as my fourth pair of pipers and I feel in love all over again. The colours on these breeches are beautiful. While it is more of a Yale blue than a turquoise on the piping, the breeches still look gorgeous. They fit perfectly and stretch a perfect amount so they stay snug and comfortable and move with you, but don't stretch out. These are my go-to breeches for sure!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Changed design My daughter used to love these breeches, the fit used to be perfect. However, with her last pair they seemed to be gappy in the knee. Her friends at the barn who wear the same breeches noticed the same thing with their new pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable! I absolutely love these breeches and would reccommend to anyone who is schooling. I also find that they are not extremely hot during the warm summer months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Price, OK Qulity I purchased my first pair of Pipers last year. After two trips to the barn to ride, I noticed that the fabric was pilling. I contacted SmartPak and they sent me a new pair. I hoped that it was just my first pair that had this issue but, my second pair did the same thing. I ordered a pair of full seats as well and they have had the same issue. Otherwise, they are very comfortable and you can't beat the price so I would rather have some pilling on inexpensive, comfortable breeches then on some I paid a higher price for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grewat design I love the piper breeches. They fit me nicely and are super comfortable. I am curvey (nice butt and hips!) and it is sometimes hard for me to find breeches that fit comfortably. Piper's are great. For some reason the long length fits me better than the regular, and i don't usually need to buy longs. I love the color options they come in, they are durable and fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute, and great quality! I originally ordered size 26R, which matched my measurements on the size chart. However they were a bit big in the hips and waist. I exchanged them for a size down, and they fit perfectly! They wash well, they are very comfortable, and so far they are holding up fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite breeches I've been wearing these for months now, and they've held up wonderfully. I wear the same pair almost every day because I love them so much more than my other breeches! I have the full seat version too, but these are comfier. The back pocket holds my phone in even while riding! The fabric is nice. My only complaint would be that they feel a little big in the waist, I think they might have stretched out since I first tried them on. I just wear a belt though so it's fine. I might try ordering a size smaller for my next pair, since they have free returns I can always get my normal size if they are too small!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE After reading all of the great reviews for this product, I finally decided to go ahead and buy a pair - and thank goodness I did! These are by far the most comfortable pair of breeches I've ever worn, and the colors are breathtaking! The only problem I see with them is that one of my pairs started pilling after just one wear, and if you're not wearing a belt they tend to fall down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite These breeches are honestly amazing! They fit me so well and they're so comfortable in & out of the saddle. They are well made and come in such fun colors and can make any barn outfit look fun & professional! I would buy all of them if I could!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, flattering, and fun! These are my favorite breeches to wear! The only issues I really have with them is that the material seems to be slightly different than it used to be. Also the color pop on the pockets used to be suede but now it's more nylon like. So they aren't as soft. Still a great breech!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice look- cheap fabric I ordered these two weeks ago. I was so excited to try them on as they look adorable. I tried them on and it was the perfect fit! I was so excited about my new pipers, but then after 1 hour at the barn (30 min horse care, 30 min riding) I noticed that the pants had pretty bad piling on the inside of the thighs. I was bummed. Went to try on my other new pair-same problem. I am not a big lady, nor do my thighs rub together. Severely disappointed with this purchase, because for this price I could have bought a brand that didn't pill and fit me just the same. In short- love the look and price, but the fabric is terrible and will start to wear out on the first min.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Breech But Color Is A Little Off I bought 2 different colored breeches: tan/black & navy/dove. The quality is great and they fit well. But, the material is a little itchy in the heat. They are AMAZING winter breeches though. The tan/black pair was nowhere near the tan it pictures. I ordered two pairs of those and they were both the same color. They are a darkish tan/a hint of green. They are a pretty color bit I ordered them for showing and unfortunately I had to order a different brand. Lovely breeches, just the color was not what it pictured.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quite Dissapointed I bought these breeches four (4) months ago mainly because of my friends' experience and love for them. I also felt that for the price and reviews, then, the breeches must be worth it. Plus, I LOVED the color options. Yet, when I went to buy the breeches, the color options I really wanted were discontinued/sold out. So I settled for a color that I did not truly love at the time, but actually do like now. Color option beside, I am not planning on purchasing another pair in the future. Three (3) rides in, I noticed that I was constantly pulling up my breeches no matter how tight my belt was, my phone did not seem to fit or stay in the pockets very well, and that the stitching was starting to come loose on the knee patches. Four (4) months in, none of the above has improved and in addition, the seat seems to be thinning, and I seem to be breaking out in hives from the breakdown of the fabric. I have talked to various friends who have Pipers, and actually who encouraged me to invest in a pair, and they, too, seem to be having similar problems. I was originally contacted by a Customer Service Rep concerning trading in for a new pair and I declined to pursue because I felt that it was not a single pair issue, but an overall product issue. Though I will not be buying Pipers again, or recommending them to a friend, I will not hesitate to shop other products from SmartPak. I will go back to Tailoreds or Ariats for my breeches options.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awesome pockets... And that's about it. I've put off writing this review for a long time. See, I ordered my first pair of Pipers approximately a year ago. When I got them, I was ecstatic. The fit seemed great out of the bag; the fabric seemed thick and supportive, but somehow magically erased any VPL, regardless of my undergarment choice; and those pockets! The pockets were what "made" these breeches - my phone fit. That's all I've ever wanted in breeches. Or so I thought. I ordered a second pair almost immediately, and started wearing these two ride two horses an average of five times a week. Hard use by some standards, but should hardly require the breeches to wear like iron to stand up for a year or so. I recommended the breeches to all my friends, despite a few dissatisfactions that started cropping up. Namely that they fell down - constantly and persistently, despite aggressive belting efforts. I asked a few other people I knew who wore these breeches and they confirmed this as an issue for them too. Well, I decided I could put up with that. Of course, then the seams started unraveling over the knee patches. Something I wouldn't have expected so soon, but again - those pockets, so okay. Well now the seat seems to be going. And by that, I mean it literally seems to be getting thinner. I checked in with a friend again and she confirmed - her's too! Now, I'd guess that maybe our sizing was off, but I've seen her breeches - they're on the big side of things. Mine are what I'd call a close-to-perfect fit. And we're both experiencing the same issues - thinning seat, wearing seams, and breeches that are constantly riding DOWN. I'll be going back to scoping out deals on Ariat Pro Circuits, my usual go to for show breeches, and trying out other options for schooling breeches when these complete their decomposition process, which I anticipate happening sooner rather than later.
