100% Happiness Guarantee
HappinessGuarantee
At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Ariat Ideal Down Vest is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love this packable vest! Purchased this packable vest in Feb 2018 but only wore it a few times until a trip to the East Coast in October. It was PERFECT! Warm, stylish and easy to pop in my day bag. Unfortunately it needed a wash when I got home. I followed the washing instructions to the"T"! The down bunched up in little balls along one side of the vest. I tried pulling it apart but it would have taken me ages to do the whole vest! And then again the next wash. I think the sections should be stitched smaller to hold the down in place. Please address this design flaw and I'll be buy another. In the mean time back to Eddie Bauer. Keep us posted!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Liked the old stuff sac better Lovely pattern adding texture with out a huge print (like the hunt scene from last year) These vests have been lightweight, warm and easy to care for. They take little room as they stuff into a small sac. However I do not care for the new stuff sack. You have to turn the vest inside out to get it in the integrated, no longer separate, sac and then you can’t see which vest is what as all you now see is the liner. I have more thanone of these vests and would like to see which I am grabbing. We Plus you need a degree in origami to figure out how to get the vest into the integrated sac. The separate sac in previous years would easily hook on the hanging loop inside the neck line and you could not see or feel it when worn that way. Hey Ariat if you continue this integrated sac make sure that area is not the lining but the exterior fabric so we can see what we are grabbing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely I've been looking for a "layer" to add over my plain zip up show shirts for colder weather shows and this vest fit the bill. As always, Ariat provides a quality product at an affordable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second one! I absolutely love these vests, I have the turquoise and black one! They are warm and comfy without the super bulk of normal vests! I wear these riding and out and about!
    Date published: 2017-10-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, comfy vest! I didn't purchase the vest from SmartPak but wanted to review it anyway. This vest fits very well and is nice enough to wear out-and-about, not just at the barn. I'd recommend it to anyone. I should add that I sometimes have trouble with clothing fitting the top half but then not fitting well around my hips... so if you have that issue with vests I would highly recommend this one.
    Date published: 2017-10-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's ideal! Lightweight, warm, super convenient that it folds into its own little bag, and it's stylish. I recommend sizing up one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight and very warm. I bought it before I read the reviews, while almost everyone is happy, I wished I would have read the one about washing it.
