    Bradley Soft Shell Full Seat Breeches by SmartPak is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have owned a few pairs of these breeches... They never disappoint me.
    Date published: 2016-06-29
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I really wanted to live these breeches. The first pair I ordered were too small (even though I measured myself and ordered accordingly). I returned them and exchanged for the next size up. It was in this pair that the issues were evident. At first glance the breeches seem to have quality materials and workmanship, however the material of the breech is fairly stretchy, while the grippy patch material that is seen on top for the full seat/legs is not at all stretchy. This makes for very akward bunching if the breeches, and they are hardly stretchy enough to allow good movement in the saddle. Very sadly had to return them again. Not a good buy, even at a discount. They were unusable. :(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit! These are the most comfortable pair of breeches I own. The fit is perfect and they look really good on! I highly recommend them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable! Very comfortable, a little bigger in the hip/butt area, but that makes them great for wearing all day and riding several horses, like I do.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice feel This product was a nice quality just didnt fit in the legs a bit big.
    Date published: 2016-05-09
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The dye on these breeches bled like crazy, even after washing. I like the material as it seems to repel dirt, dust, and hair. Ran a bit big in my opinion.
    Date published: 2016-05-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only bad thing they run big, would recommend going one size smaller then ur normal. After you find the right size they are awesome, fit great!
    Date published: 2016-05-05
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would be a nice winter breech if they had fit! I didn't realize these were fleece lined when I ordered them so they won't work for what I had in mind (summer schooling shows and clinics). They are a very low rise and cut in quite a bit at the waist so they didn't fit like I had anticipated either. The length was great and they fit very well through the leg but they will be returned. I might try ordering another pair of these breeches in a larger size and without fleece. They run close a full size smaller than Pipers. and half a size smaller than Ariats.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Breeches! I bought these breeches after my friend told me how comfortable, durable, and helpful these are while riding. Now, I don't ride in any other breeches! They're comfortable and stylish. I read the reviews about it running small, but they fit perfectly on me. I definitely recommend these breeches, you won't regret it! :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice breeches I bought these, but they were to big. Appeared to be well made. Only reason I sent them back was they were just to big on me.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for curvy shapes! I bought these in my normal size but had to return and but a size up as they are quite small in the waist and pretty roomy in the seat. If I was more curvy I'd probably love them
    Date published: 2016-03-11
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great value for the price I bought a pair of these for my daughter for everyday and she liked them so much I bought a second pair. They are comfortable, warm and look professional at a very reasonable price

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice winter breeches Got these on sale and love them. The waistband is stretchy and the soft shell stays nice through a day's work. The downside is that they're a lighter weight than I'd like but I just use a base layer under them. The fit is good, although I hate a sock bottom, which is never snug on my skinny legs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Hearty I am very hard on my breeches and these are comfortable and hold up to my abuse. The fleece lining is extra comfy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering, Functional Winter Breeches I purchased these fantastic breeches 6 weeks ago, hoping for a combination of warmth, comfort, and style, and that is exactly what I received! The Bradley Soft Shell breeches do not add an ounce of bulk to my physique- a feature that most female equestrians will love! They are quite warm, but not overly, so I didn't get too hot while riding or working around the barn and I remained toasty when standing still. These breeches are well-made with seemingly high quality materials, and I think they will hold up well to regular winter wear. I was very happy with the price for getting such a quality riding pant; the Bradleys are nice enough to wear for competition, and I plan to wear them to some schooling shows this year. The only oddity about them is the "full seat" feature, as these breeches seem more like a Euro Seat in my opinion, but that is not a big deal to me in the context of the other excellent features these pants offer. Regarding the fit, I had no problems with these breeches. I'm 6 ft tall and typically wear a size 28 or 30 Long in breeches, depending on the brand. I ordered the Bradleys in a size 30 Long, figuring the bigger size would accommodate for any added bulk that comes with a winter breech (which these don't have, thank goodness!). Honestly, I would have been fine with the 28L, but the 30 is comfortable without being too loose and I've been incredibly happy with them! As a side note for the taller riders- the Bradley Soft Shell breeches are ACTUALLY long enough, which is a rarity for female riders of my height! I highly recommend these breeches. They are, in 3 words, functional, flattering, and fun!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warm pants, but they are a little funky fitting I bought these breeches during the 12 deals of Christmas because they were SUCH a bargain. When I got them in, I could hardly get them on and zipping them just wasn't in the cards. I am a solid 24 in Pipers and the 24 in these pants was way too small. I sent those back to get the 26s. Those actually fit, but they just seen a little funky. The waist and legs are fine on me, but the front is a little tight, though it seems better in a riding position (I've been unable to ride since I got them due to a broken back). I'm keeping them at least until I can test them out in the saddle, though I'm fairly confident they will be kept permanently.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strange fit Confronted with the sad fact that I was indeed going to have to ride in an outdoor all winter, I decided to try these breeches. I ordered my normal size, but when they arrived, they were so tight in the knees and thighs I could barely bend my legs. Knowing other reviews had mentioned having to go up a size, I returned them for the next larger. The new pair is baggy everywhere, the waist is too big, and the butt is oddly pointy. They are also almost too long, something that has never happened to me before. I'll keep them since I can layer underneath and they seem like they will be warm, but I'm hoping for an updated fit before next winter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit Love the waist band, great fabric, run true to size. The only thing I don't care for, is sometimes the inside seam around the booty can be scratchy against the skin, only while riding. Wish they came in other colors, and if they covered the seam they would be perfect! They are warm, but not bulky.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a great fit.Make them like the Piper Breeches! I bought these since they were on sale and was super excited to get them. I recently received 2 pairs of the full seat piper breeches for fall riding and wanted to get something a little warmer during those cold winter months that we experience in the northeast. The Piper breeches I received fit amazingly (I bought 30L) so I ordered the same size. I was very disappointed in the fit of these breeches as well as the quality. They were uncomfortably snug around the waist and the legs were baggy in contrast. I thought about getting a bigger size but just ended up returning them, guessing that they would fit in the waist and be baggier in the legs. If they had fit as well as my Piper breeches do, I would have kept them for sure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these breeches I have been looking for a pair of breeches that look tailored and nice for cold weather riding. So glad I finally found these! They fit nicely and are flattering, have a soft lining, quality materials and nice details. I get compliments when I wear them, even from non horse people. They are not my warmest breeches but are warmer than I expected. They are not slippery even with just the knee patches. They have the euro seat so you get the look, without the diaper feeling of full seats. If I was going to improve them I would have them a bit taller in the back for coverage. A long tail shirt helps. To perfect the fit, I would make them taller and a bit snugger in the small of the back. I am a dressage rider 5'10 and 143 and I got the 30L (my usual size). I thought the breeches were pretty true to size (definitely not skimpy) and feel more generous because they have enough elastic that there are no tight spots. I hope they hold up well because I just ordered a second pair. If Smartpak comes out with a gray I will be ordering again.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Odd fit but seemed to be good quality I really, really wanted to like these but similar to other reviewers, the fit just didn't work. I am 5'7" 156 bottom heavy pear. Tried a size 30. The calves were very tight but they became increasingly baggy from the thigh to the waist. The material seemed very durable and the inside lining is definitely warm, but there was no give/stretch and I do think they make a swishing sound when you walk. I think if your body type is more apple than pear, they may work for you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter breeches I've worn these several times now. They fit great and wash easily. The outer fabric helps repel liquids. The fuzzy lining is warm and comfortable and they have enough extra room to fit a layer of thermals underneath for those really cold days. They've been great with and without the extra layers- the only pair I have that I will wear both normally and with a layer. Love them!
    Date published: 2015-01-07
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from just ok The fabric has a nice feeling, both inside and out, and I like the smooth outer layer that won't gather hay, hair, etc. However, the fleece layer is surprisingly thin for a winter breech. I tried them on and the wind went through them easily when I went outside. The fit was a bit small and I returned them for a larger size. That pair fit, but I wasn't overly happy with the dropped waist - especially in winter. I don't want any gaps for the air to get through! Wish they made these with a natural waist. Because I bought these as a winter breech, I returned them because I don't think they would be warmer than some of my regular breeches.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so great While the fabric and style was wonderful, there seemed to be an issue with the quality of the stitching. The size that fit me the stitching in the knee patches was rough on the inside and the width at the knee was narrow and I am a thin person so they should have fit. I went up one size which was too big although did give me more room in the knee, but the stitching was still rough in the inside. Think it was most likely a quality check issue.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality This was a gift for our granddaughter. She needed a warmer pair for riding this winter. Unfortunately they were too big for her, so we exchanged them today. Great quality & durability
    Date published: 2014-12-23
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from nice idea, strange cut/sizing When I pulled these breeches out of the bag I really like the look of them. They seemed stylish and well-constructed. The first size I tried, 26r was way too small around the hips (this is the size I wear in Smartpak's Piper breeches). I ordered the 28r and got breeches that were very baggy around the crotch, the back of the waist, and also baggy in the legs. They run small and large?!! I am sadly sending them back.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from What happened to a normal "long"? I purchased these breeches at the Equine Affaire event in Massachusetts in November 2013. I am a definite size 28, and with a 22"+ long femur, I tend to fit well into the long style breeches. I normally buy size 28 regular, but so does my trainer...and she beat me to the last pair of size 28 regular breeches on the shelf. My issue with these breeches is the overall sizing. Not only is the 28 pretty big on me (I need a belt), the breeches are long EVERYWHERE. I mean, I have a serious case of saggy-butt when I wear these. The length of the leg is perfect, but my butt is not as long as they seem to think it should be! It makes me really upset, because I want to love these breeches. The sock fit is awesome, the moisture-wicking fabric is a dream on warm pre-summer days, and they seem to be very durable. Alas, they've been relegated to my "work-breeches" section of my closet. I wanted to wear these for XC during my next few events, but that's not going to happen. I'm disappointed, and wondering if I should bother buying another pair in my size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best breeches ever! I bought these breeches on sale around Christmas and I absolutely love them! I rode in them in cold, rainy weather, and now in the warmer spring months, they're still breathable and cool. I love the little details such as the fun print in the waistband and the little charm. I love the pockets and the fit of these and I wouldn't hesitate to wear these in a show, because they look like a more expensive breech. The quality is fantastic too, they've held up through many rides and they wash very well. I just wash them in cold then let them air dry and they're even more comfortable than the day I bought them. My only complaint is that the butt area is a little loose, but you can't notice when you're on the horse, and it's actually helpful considering that I do jumpers. Fantastic job, SmartPak!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from update on the first review A few months ago I bought a pair of these breeches and even though I wasn't totally in love with them, I decided to buy another pair in the next size up. This review is my revised opinion of the breeches. I still feel there are improvements to be made in the cut of the breeches, however going up a size did improve how the knees and crotch fit. BUT the cut of the full seat in the back still have this weird poochy thing going on but it is winter and I always have a sweater and vest on which hide it so it's not too bad. I do like the material (its fairly heavy) and they are warm with a grippy seat. But I am hoping Smartpaks fixes the way they fit in the seat as there aren't that many options for warm breeches out there. So basically go up a size with these breeches and wear a jacket or vest to hide the butt.
