    Alexus Knee Patch Breeches by SmartPak is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 80.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I am late to the party in buying the youth and so upset that I waited so long. Some of the reviews initially put me off from buying these a long time ago but I finally broke down and bought them and they fit perfectly on me. The material was just what I was looking for, more like TS breeches. If I had to get one negative review on them it would be the sock is a bit big but once you were wearing your tall boots it doesn't matter. Please please please don't discontinue this brand and bring back more colors because I need to buy all of them. Right now there is nothing left in my size to order which makes me very sad. These fit me better than the Pipers, which I am constantly having to pull up and readjust while wearing.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from disappointed in the fit The breeches looked lovely, with great features, quality construction and nice fabric. The rise, however, is not at all suitable for the more mature figure. These ran small also and I had to return them.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ill-fitting for long & lean riders Wanted to get a light grey pair of breeches similar to my Tailored Sportsmans, unfortunately these did not fit me correctly. I'm very tall/straight and ordered both the 26L and 28L. The 26 was tight in the waist and I could barely get the legs over my calves. 28 was extremely baggy in the waist but still too tight in the calves. They might fit better on someone with curves. The fabric had nice thickness/ stretch and I really liked the Dove color, just not for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good breeches I really love the material of these breeches, it is close to the TS along with the fit. The only thing I do not like about these breeches are pockets, they are small and don't fit my iPhone well. and the calfs are oddly large. other than that these are great breeches. I wish they came in more colors.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, well fitting I bought 2 pairs of these breeches at the same time and have worn both several times. The material is soft and comfortable. I'm petite but not skinny and they fit well through the waist, hips and thighs. However, they do run a little short.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these! I bought these breeches to be my show breeches, I was a little nervous not going with Tailored Sportsman's or one of the other high end brands, but I decided to take the chance based on the price during a sale. Very happy with the decision. My only complaint is that they are a bit loose around the ankle, and because there is no Velcro, it cannot be tightened.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't fit at all I bought these as a schooling breech. They were sooooo low cut I could not even think about wearing them out of my house.
    Date published: 2016-07-05
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice - but soooo low!! These are great breeches, nice alternative to the Pipers and their obnoxious piping, but why on earth to you offer sizes above a 36 but because they are so low cut couldn't possibly fit a larger rider??
    Date published: 2016-07-04
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made, but not for me These are well made, but the rise is much too low for comfort. They also run small.
    Date published: 2016-06-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great. I have every color. I bought the same size as my piper breeches and they fit just fine other than being loose around calf, but with socks on its not a big deal. I didn't think they were too low rise like some of the other reviews said. The fabric almost repels water and the quality looks really nice. i wear these over my pipers and equine coutures.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted Perfect mix of fabric type and price. Very similar to the feel and and look of TS without the giant price tag. I saw some reviews that said they fit weird, but decided to give them a try anyways and they fit me pretty much perfectly. The only part that doesn't are the bottom part of the legs - they're a tad big there but with socks and boots on top it really doesn't matter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for me! I like the fit. Maybe a little large, but it's the fit i prefer. The shape and cut are flattering (i'm average build, definitely not bean-pole legs!). I like the wide waist band and i can squat down to work on horse legs without an exposure risk. The material seemed a little stiff at first, but turns out to be cool and comfortable to ride and work around the barn. The calf elastic is a little large for me (i prefer the velcro closures), so after a real long day, i've gotten a little rub on the inside of my knee after changing in and out of boots, half chaps, etc, i think from them being able to slide up and down a little bit. Overall, i'm happy with these. I think they'll hold up well and i'd buy them again!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I was expecting I ordered the "dove" color and they were much darker than in the photos and also had a strong blue tint to them. The fabric is very poor quality and is scratchy. I am returning them as I was very disappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these! Great, less expensive alternative to trophy hunters as they are a similar fit and material.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the fit! We could not find this color in any other breech. We have never owned a pair of these, so we were pleasantly pleased with the quality and the fit!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and flattering I ordered a few pairs of white breeches for some dressage shows this summer to see which pair I liked best, and these were easily the winner. They fit great, look nice, are flexible and not stuffy. So glad I snapped them up while they were one sale :)

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from So sad I bought a couple of size 30 the Alexus breeches a couple of years ago and loved them. When I saw them on sale recently bought 2 more. Sadly, they are a different fit. Almost so much that I think they must be mismarked. Lost the tags or I would have sent them back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent material! These breeches were currently on-sale which motivated me to buy them. I bought these breeches a few weeks ago. They arrived within 2-3 days, very fast service! I've only worn them once, but am very happy with the feel of the material and the aesthetic look of the breeches (they match the piping of my saddle pad!). Word of advice: because they are a low rise breech, you might want to order a size up as they sit lower on your hip rather than your waist. Normally, I am a 28, but I probably would be a bit more comfortable in a 30. I wish the sock-fit calf was tighter, the lower leg area of the breeches are a bit loose. Overall, I recommend these breeches!
    Date published: 2016-05-18
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good schooling breech So far they are holding up well. They are a good fit for a curvy rider, I just wish they were a little higher rise. I kept the gray as a schooling breech but returned the tan that I bought to show. I bought them at 40% off so at that price point I thought they were good value. I would not pay the regular price on them. I was looking for something comparable to the fits jump line breech that is no longer being made and they just don't compare.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really, REALLY wanted to love these breeches. I am currently looking for a pair of show breeches that are TS quality without the TS price tag, and I was hoping that SP's Alexus breeches were it. I also happened to purchase them when they were 50% off, so I picked up two pairs for the price of one, which was even better. When they arrived (super quickly, as always), I was pretty excited about the feel of the material, the overall look, and the subtle details of the breeches, thinking they would be perfect for my needs: the material is almost identical to TS, they feature the wider belt loops, the pockets are a good size, and the price is better than TS. While I'm only 5'3" tall with really muscular 17.5" calves, the sock bottom of these breeches was weirdly loose...I definitely don't have this problem with any other breeches, SmartPak brand or otherwise. But what I was most disappointed in was the fit itself: the rise of these breeches is MUCH too short, even on someone as petite and short-torsoed as I am. These breeches are low-rise, but they sit uncomfortably low on the waist, and the crotch of these breeches sits in a very uncomfortable place. I was devastated by the odd fit of the Alexus breeches, because they are perfect in every other way. I was really hoping that these breeches would fit closer to the SP Pipers, but that doesn't seem to be the case, so they were returned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfy Love these breeches - they have some substance to them, so they don't feel at all like leggings - very much breeches, but with stretch and some style. I like the wide waistband, very flattering, and the calves are nicely fitted so there's no scrunching in my boots. They fit true to size, but are not skin tight - I do a have a little room in the thighs, but they are not baggy at all. If you are on the boarder between sizes and prefer a very fitted breech, I would go a size down. If you fit a size pretty perfectly, definitely order your size! They do not run large.
    Date published: 2016-05-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Material, Gorgeous Details Needed a pair of show breeches and didn't want to splurge on the TS trophy hunters, I think these look just as nic! The details look beautiful and the material is super high quality! The only things about them are they are a teensy tiny bit baggy but once getting in the saddle they lay fine, the other thing is they are a little shorter which doesn't bother me, but if you'd like them to reach your ankles I'd order a long. Great breeches!
    Date published: 2016-05-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful...but... Probably the nicest looking/feeling breeches of the 8-10 I tried. They are pretty low rise though, and for me, I would have felt like a plumber when putting boots on my horse if you get the visual, so I returned them. Very nice styling & fabric. Gorgeous color (gray)...def worth a try, especially with free returns on sized items.
    Date published: 2016-04-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this breech This is my 2nd pair of Alexus breeches and I love them. They are the closest thing I have found to the TS trophy hunters that I love so much. While they are less $ than the TS they are still a bit pricey for me to use everyday so I try to use them just for showing and an occasional schooling ride. Overall these breeches fit well, look flattering, and are holding up well.
    Date published: 2016-02-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SmartPak Has Done It Again I really like these breeches and have two tan pairs to show in. While they are not quite comparable to the Pikeur Ciara's, I prefer these over my Tailored Sportsman Trophy Hunter's. The subtle Alexus detailing and pocket trim add a nice touch of fun to the traditional show ring look. Would recommend giving these a try for sure!
    Date published: 2016-01-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful breeches, comfortable low rise,well made These breeches are so comfortable and have such a great fit that they are my new #1 favorites. The low rise fit adapts comfortably to most body shapes. The stretch sock is the best idea ever! I don't have to remove velcro anymore. They are very stain resistant; wash in cold water, air dry and they look like new.
    Date published: 2015-12-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fit, flattering I like the heavier weight fabric; it's stretchy yet flattering. The breeches fit well in waist, leg (especially through the thigh) and the length is perfect.
