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 1588.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun color selection for the price! I’ve had many pairs of the Piper breeches. I love the color options for the price. They tend to run loose in the waste but with a belt are okay. Without a felt they fall down. Good in the fall/spring or winter. Too warm for me in summer, but I struggle with the heat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great breeches My daughter loves these breeches. I accidentally ordered the wrong size and it was a super quick and easy exchange. Highly recommend.
    Date published: 2017-11-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look and feel great! These fit perfectly and are true to size. They make riding way more comfortable and love the reinforced areas to eliminate chafing etc and love the way they look. Awesome!
    Date published: 2017-11-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous breeches! I have probably 7 or 8 pairs of these in various colors, and I love them! The only flaw I see in these breeches is that sometimes the stitching in the belt loops is flawed, so the raw edges will pop out. Otherwise, they fit many different body types well - and with the back pockets, they are very flattering in the back! The color variety is also great. They're a nice spring-summer-fall breech!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome These are my first pair of breeches and I love the material and the way that they fit! They are super stretchy and not restrictive at all when riding. Also, the color choices are amazing and I definitely plan on purchasing more colors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy! This is my 4th pair of these awesome breeches! I picked the darker colors to wear at home for every day. They fit well(I’m 5’10”) and seem to be holding up great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great colors Great color options and very comfortable, good bang for your buck! Only issue is that if you forget a belt you will be pulling them up quite often.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that they come in Long sizes My daughter loves Piper breeches. She is tall, slender and very long-legged and these are the only breeches we have found that fit her. Fun colors, too.
    Date published: 2017-11-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my second pair, I love them. I would say that they run a little small and the two pair that I have that are the same fit a little different. One is smaller than the other. But love the style and really the only breeches in want to wear now!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and comfort I normally buy a much more expensive brand. Decided to try these on a whim. Super happy. I actually like them better than the brand I normally get as the waste is a bit more forgiving. Super comfortable and flattering

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite breeches! I got these breeches a few weeks ago and I absolutely adore them. The fabric quality is amazing! They fit like a glove. I’m a petite person, 22R, so it’s hard to find breeches that fit me. Usually I have to get a kids 14 and the inseam is usually too short on those. But, these breeches are just right. I can’t say anything negative about them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looking, comfortable. Size up I have had this for about a month and I love them. If you are tall dont hesitate to go a size up and get the long. The rise is good and the material is very comfortable. If you order them and find they are a little tight, also don't hesitate to go a size up, it will be 10x more comfortable. I have gotten complements on them and you can't see a shirt tucked into them or anything else under the fabric. My only complaint is that they are a little baggy behind the knees, but it isn't a bother when riding and isn't too noticeble, so still 5 star worthy, but I would give them a 4.5 if I could. In short, I love them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE Piper Breeches! Fit, style, comfort, functional pockets. Pipers have them all. I started with 1 pair, now I have 6. The full seat Pipers are comfy and heck and you don't feel the full seat-ness of them. The knee patch Pipers are great too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in every way! These arethe first pair of riding breeches I've ever owned. I used to ride in jeans as a young teenager but decided that I wanted an actual pair of riding breeches for getting back in the saddle. I am in love with these!! They are SO comfortable and super flattering! I am a hair over 5'2'' and most breeches I looked at were super long the regular in these are perfect. I have a 34'' waist and so I ordered the 34R but I honestly could have probably sized down to the 32R because they are so stretchy. I have not yet ridden in them so I cannot comment on the durability but I expect them to hold up super well as they are so well made. They are not too thick but not thin either. Will be buying more of these in the near future!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great detailing! I love my piper breeches, they took time ro detail the pockets and they fit pretty well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish AND Comfortable! The color choices are awesome, and the breeches are comfortable enough for all day wear!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! I just got these breeches a few weeks ago and the quality is fantastic! They fit very well everywhere except the waist is a little too big. A smaller size would have been too tight in the legs. Overall very happy with these pants!
    Date published: 2017-09-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A New Favorite! I recently purchased the Piper Breeches for my daughter who is an avid Equestrian. They were an excellent investment as they have become her new favorite riding pants. They fit exceptionally well and true to size. She tells me all the time how comfortable they are and I love the fact that I can finally put a pair of her breeches in the dryer! I would definitely recommend these riding pants!
    Date published: 2017-09-25
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The colors, details, and substantial fabric make these pants very nice looking. The fit for me isn't comfortable enough for a second pair: I wear a 30L, which usually fits me, but these pants are somewhat short in the thighs, as the knee patch barely covers at knee level. Also the waist is an inch or more too large, while the leg width narrow. My figure is somewhat of a "stick." So not a particularly good fit for me but close enough.
    Date published: 2017-09-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute and comfy I bought these breeches a few weeks ago and I am quite pleased with them. They fit like a glove and are super comfortable in and out of the saddle. The only almost complaint I have is that purple is a bit brighter than what it looks like online, but I still love them.
    Date published: 2017-09-22
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fabric in the seat stretches out too fast I bought these in March 2017. I bought two pairs. The colors are beautiful and the cut is flattering and comfortable. But by September 2017. The fabric in the seat had stretched out to the point where it had ripples in it. They were lovely breeches for a few months and now are not usable. They are going in the garbage. I do hope the other brands I've ordered will last a bit longer. I only ride 4-5 days per week. I will not be buying another pair of pipers again.
    Date published: 2017-09-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved them but not for me Bought a pair of Pipers because several of my friends have them and just rave about them. I loved the stretch and material, but they just didn't fit my body type. I have a small waist and large hips, and the waist was way too big but the hips were tight, and they kept sliding down since the waist was too big. I loved the general aspects of them, though, and I guess I'll just have to buy them for my friends :)
    Date published: 2017-09-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice product I purchased these breeches and went by the size chart but found they were way too big. I sent another pair I had purchased back and asked for a size smaller and I feel they are still big. I would suggest going at lease 1 or even 2 sizes smaller than what they recommend on their size chart. Other than size difference they pants are really nice.
