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'!).

    Piper Breeches by SmartPak - Original Knee Patch is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1480.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the colors I like the feel and comfort of these breeches however I've had issues with almost every pair I've bought. The zippers want to fall after a few months, I have to wear a belt with them or we get the plumber look going, they start to pill at the thigh, and most annoying is the wrinkle in the euro-seam that appears after a few wears. The taupe and mint seems to be the worst about the wrinkle butt. I've had them returned a couple of times and my third pair is doing it again. I want to love these breeches so bad, but with these flaws I can not.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comparing these to the modified rise! So I bought four pairs of Smartpak Pipers to compare the size, fit, and features of both. I am 5'2", 140lbs, and generally have a pear shaped figure aka curvier hips/thighs but normal waist. I bought 2 pairs of the original knee patch pipers in 26 and 28 and then 2 pairs of the modified rise version also in 26 and 28. The Modified pipers have a 1.5" waistband (and belt loops) compared to the 2" waistband and belt loops of the original knee patch pipers - I prefer the wide band, comfier and holds my extra fluff in well! There are two buttons on the original pipers and only one on the modified - I prefer the two personally. The belt loops on the originals are about 1" wide vs 1/2" wide belt loops on the modified (see picture). Lastly, the sizing. I found both the modified and original to be similar in fit. The original actually just covers my belly button so the rise was similar for both on me. I personally did not notice excessive knee bunching and just a slight waist gap. The color and other features are all the same. I ended up going with the 26R in the original knee patch. Even as a shorter gal, the length is perfect - hits right at the ankle bone with minimal bunching and it has plenty of room in the hips for me to move. I don't mind the slight gap at the back, easy fix by tucking in my shirt or adding a belt. The material feels like a thicker, sturdier version of my Kerrit Flow Rise tights. Pipers make me feel like I'm wearing tights but look like tailored breeches! What an excellent product SmartPak - thank you!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the new Blue! They fit like the last couple I have bought, only had them on a couple times. The pipers have held up to riding and the chores that come with it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Breeches My 15 year old daughter loves these! She has three pair of Piper Breeches. They are comfortable, function well, are stylish & reasonably priced. So far they also hold up well to use and washing.
