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'!).

Our exclusive Bradley Soft Shell Knee Patch Breeches will be your new favorite winter breech!

  • Soft shell fabric is peached on the inside but the best part is the windproof exterior is QUIET, so no more worrying about spooking your horse with your swishy breeches
  • Soft, comfortable moisture-wicking fabric in sock-fit calf eliminates the need for itchy hook-and-loop closures 
  • Floral pattern inside the waistband and hanging SmartPak horse medallion add some classic Bradley flair 
  • Synthetic knee patches provide great grip in the saddle

    Bradley Soft Shell Knee Patch Breeches by SmartPak is rated 4.1875 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very comfortable; pilled a ton These breeches fit pretty true to size, although they are a little lower rise than I prefer. My dream breech is the TS Trophy in mid-rise as a reference point. The long is certainly long! I am 5'9+ with long legs, and these come down all the way to my ankle. The sock bottom fits well and these are very comfortable. I haven't ridden outside in them so I can't speak to the wind resistance, but the fabric is nice. My only complaint is despite following washing instructions (wash inside out and line dry), they have pilled like crazy, and not just where they contact the saddle. The pills are small and not noticeable from a distance, and I didn't get these as show breeches, so it is not the end of the world. I've washed them less than 10 times, probably closer to 5 times, so I do worry a bit about their longevity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE these! I bought a pair of these at the beginning of the winter and they are all I wear! I live in ME and these have kept me warm enough to endure the subzero temperatures we get here. I am now buying another pair for shows.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice details I purchased these breeches with the hope that they would be warm and stylish enough to show in during cold winter months. The breeches are not bulky but do provide a little extra warmth (I did my first test ride in 40 degrees). The euroseat, quality knee patches, closures, and print detailing on the inside provide a professional look that I will happily wear in the show ring. The breeches run a little large, which leaves room for additional layers in really cold weather. My only critique is that the calf is oddly large and the breech is quite long, but once I had my socks and boots on, it was not an issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it I bought  this last month & I am satisfied w/ it.  It's warm enough & i has belt loops that I can use  the tan one for local shows. It is very comfortable / soft to the skin,  & it's not bulky at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter breeches! I have been wearing these breeches since the day they arrived!  While they are not the thickest, warmest winter breeches I have, they are great for 25-40 degree weather.  I wore them foxhunting on a brisk morning and they were comfortable and perfect for formal attire.  They do run large--I have summer Bradleys in the same size and they fit like a glove while these do fit big.  I am able to put a pair of long underwear under them, though, and it makes them a much warmer riding pant.  If you want them closer fitting, you'll probably want to order down a size.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from an odd fit for me I am 5'6, 148 ride three to five horses a day muscular pounds.  I wear a 30 long in the ariat pro circuit,a 28 long in the old ariat brittany (favorite schooling breech..too bad they are no more), and a 30 long in tailored sportsman. I ride in the kerrits polar fleece breeches in the winter.  The medium is loose enough to put long johns underneath in bad weather.   I ordered the 30 long in the bradley breech.  They do feel like pajamas inside.  The material seems sturdy, and they are nicely made.  They are really long on me, and sit almost on my feet..  I do have long legs and no waist..  The stretchy bottom is LOOSE, and hangs around my ankle/low calf without touching.  I could put two of my legs in the bottom. I know one reviewer said the bottoms pulled her breeches down.  I am somewhere just above a slim calf, but a regular calf in a boot is generous on me.   The low rise is pretty low.  The thigh and butt fit pretty good, the belly is a little snug on me (ok..I'm 55 and don't have a teenagers tummy), the waistband is the right size in front, not tight, but the back gaps..and with the low rise I believe that all but my longest shirts would slip out leaving a 'back draft' in the winter...not good for a winter breech.  I like them enough I am going to exchange them for a regular length.but I am worried that the rise will be smaller..I would be tempted to try a 28..but I believe the thighs may be too tight... Maybe the next pair will work.  I will keep you updated

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Breech! I purchased these going into this winter, and they were great for all the cold weather! I still layer 1-2 pairs of long johns under them as I am wearing them for work all day, and with limited access to an indoor and a small barn most of my day is spent outside. The softshell provides extra warmth without bulk, and the material has a great amount of stretch to it. They have a looser fit that the original Bradley Breeches, but make sure you order them long enough- the tight sock cuff has a tendancy to make the pants want to slide down my legs as I walk around in them all day, so I spend a lot of time pulling the pants back up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I love these breeches! At 5'2", I usually wind up in between a low/mid and a regular rise and these fit me really well. Very comfy and stay much cleaner that some other breeches. Only flaw is that they may not prove to be as heavy/warm as I was originally hoping, but I'll just wear them a different time of year than I was planning. They're keepers for me!
