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® Men's Volant Tall Front Zip is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent The design and construction of these boots is really impressive. True, they are not what you'd consider a traditional design, but that didn't matter from the moment I tried them on. The fit is perfect, and they are so comfortable. The foot bed and arch support is particularly good. They were a bit snug at first, in the ankle and calf - but they continue to break in nicely. I hardly even notice I have them on now. I did go with a half size down for my usual size, so for me, they ran a little large. Width is just right - unlike so many boots I tried on where the mid-foot is too tight. True, they are on the pricey side, but I can honestly say these are the most comfortable footwear I own. Well worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get them bc no more front zips !! I have these from a few years back and they are amazing. No break in time! Minimal, if any, drop! Mine are just schooling now due to rubs not break down. Worth every penny, true to size & snug fit. Perfection.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the boot but tabs broke -- durable? After a couple weeks of use, the tab under the main tab at the top of the zipper (the one with the little round opening for the zipper) broke on one boot, wearing out quick on the second one. Is this usual for these or did I get a defective pair? Couldn't get a replacement since my size is no longer in stock. Should I go with the Tall (the first pair was a Regular height) since I really liked them otherwise ?
    Date published: 2017-08-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maximum Comfort I've had them for a year now and they are by far the most comfortable tall boot's I've worn. It only took about 4 rides to break them in and I had no blisters during the process. They run true to size too! I truly hope they restock them in my size again so I can re-purchase them (Size 5.5, short height, b/medium width, and regular calf)
    Date published: 2017-07-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best riding boots ever! I bought these boots because of the unique design with the front zipper and the sporty look. They also are one of the most durable boots I have ever owned and I sincerely hope they are restocked in the size 5.5 soon so I can get another pair
    Date published: 2017-02-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Devastated that they've stopped making this boot. I've had 2 pair that have lasted me over the last 7 years and I wear them hard. I don't know what I'm going to do without them. The new models don't fit well at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boots ever Love these boots have - now after 4 years I need new - WHY has Ariat discontinued???
    Date published: 2016-10-29
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I so wanted to wear these boots... I so wanted to wear these boots, but alas, like many of today's (few) offerings for off-the-shelf boots for men, I couldn't get the zipper over my ankle and had to return them. That said, they are sharp looking and the footbed was very comfortable.
    Date published: 2016-01-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots! Really happy with these boots. There aren't that many choices for guys, but I can definitely recommend these from a quality standpoint. For me, they seemed to run very slightly larger than similar Ariat Paddock boots I've had. I wear size 11 which translated to a 44 1/2 (European) for a good fit. They are definitely not "wide" but I have a pretty barrow foot (c) and they fit really well. Pretty modern looking (good or bad depending on your perspective) but they feel like running shoes and are some of the most comfortable boots (or shoes for that matter) that I've worn. Wore them walking for extended times (8+ hours) with no issues. Top of the calves seem a little smaller than similar boots but if you have thin legs they are fine. The listed measurements are spot on but suggest going slightly larger on the calf measurement - height was exactly as advertised. Leather, zipper, and soles (materials and construction) are all top notch. Zipper on the front might be a slight issue if using in the wet, but no worse than zip front paddock boots. They broke in after just a few wearing but were literally comfortable out of the box. If you want a modern looking super comfortable boot, these are expensive but an excellent choice from my experience.
