Why We Love This

EquiFit Gel Bands protect rider's heels, ankles and legs from rubs and irritation while riding and are ideal for breaking in new boots! The Equifit Gel Bands stay in place while riding and fit comfortably and unobtrusively under tall boots, chaps and half chaps.  The EquiFit Gel Bands are made of a unique stretchable fabric lined with a polymer gel that gradually releases a soothing mineral oil into the skin. These bands are able to be worn directly against the skin or work just as effectively if worn over a sock.

Made in the USA.

Short height bands are sold as a pair.
Tall height bands are sold individually. 

Favorite Features

  • No more suffering through breaking in your boots!
  • Very stretchy outer lined with a polymer gel for comfort
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Hand wash after use, mild soap and air dry

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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must-Have for Breaking in Tall Boots I bought my first pair of dressage boots, having only worn my old field boots for the past ten years. My trainer recommended buying these gel bands to help the break-in process, and thank God she did, otherwise I'm not sure I would have bought them and this whole process would have stunk a lot more. Absolutely recommend these for anyone breaking in boots or if your boots aren't an ideal fit.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Need ones that are longer than the "Tall" These work great, but I really need an "Xtra tall. My calves and knee are quite thin, so I rub easily. I need protection at the middle of my calf, across my skin bone and also at the inside of my skinny knees. The tall doesn't reach both places and when I use two on one leg they pull apart and I get a rub at the point where they meet. If there was one that was 15", I would pay extra for that. I am tired of spending 5+ minutes to put on my breeches, since it is super hard to do with TWO of these gel bands on each leg.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gotta have more! I always wear the equigels when I ride. Better grip and no more saddle sores!
    Date published: 2017-11-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Ride Without Them! I am very prone to rubs on my ankles, no matter what boots I wear, to the point where I will have bleeding blisters. These have been a lifesaver for me! I wear them with everything: English Tall Boots, Paddock Boots, Western Boots, and even non-riding boots! They stop the boots rubbing my skin raw, and now I can wear whatever boots, whenever i want! I toss them in the wash with the rest of my riding gear and they stay nice and clean. I buy a new pair about once a year, but I also use them almost every day, so I would expect them to become worn.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Love how they help my tall boots to fit beautifully!~
    Date published: 2017-08-31
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good for blisters, but wear thin within 1 use I was sick of getting blisters from my tall boots so I purchased these gel bands in an attempt at relief. They work exactly how they are described to but I was quite disappointed to find that my new pair had holes worn through them after the very first use. I'm not sure if it was because it was so hot out the day that I rode, but the durability of these bands is lacking. If the price wasn't so steep, I wouldn't care that they only lasted for one use; however I can't justify spending >$20 each day I ride.
    Date published: 2017-07-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from EquiFit Gel Bands Have used them for years. They work very well! I would like to see a pair a little longer.
    Date published: 2017-06-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job I bought this because my tall boots were suddenly giving me a blister on the inside of my leg left leg just below my knee. I had a show coming up and didn't know what to do. I saw this and was hoping I could pull it up over my knee and put my boot on for the dressage test. It worked! It was really snug, but once I started riding I forgot about it until I got off - no more blister, & I'll be able to use it again.
