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'!).

    Irideon Issential Riding Tights is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 72.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had these for forever!! I bought a pair of these around 8 years ago. I machine wash and dry them and wear them at least once a week. 8 years later they are beginning to show signs of wear. Can't recommend these enough!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from not what I expected This was my first pair of riding pants other than jeans, so I didn't know what I was getting into. These are basically spandex workout tights with knee patches. There is no lined crotch. They are thin which makes getting them on under my new boots easy, but that is really the only advantage. I would not pay this much money for these tights again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fit and look - good value I wore my previous Irideon tights until they fell apart, and I am so glad this pair lives up to my expectations of great comfort, well made, looks nice

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the comfort and fit! They do not disappoint! I am happy with the fit and comfort and they feel like they are sturdy enough to hold up for some time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Irideon Issential Riding Tights Bought these several weeks ago and have washed them twice now. Don't put in dryer but they dry very quickly. They are a great weight for warmer weather without being too revealing. I would so love it if these had a cell phone pocket!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great riding tights started to try Irideon pipe line tights which are also wonderful..perfect waist for me ..elastic is snug enough so that they don't slip down ..medium fits perfectly,as does Kerrits.. long enough as I am 5'5"..love Smartpak easy returns on sized items, so I'm not worrying about trying anything new!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy, great for long rides! I've only been riding in these for about 3 weeks, but they have been wonderful. I have worn them in lessons and on several 5+ hour long trail rides and they are super comfortable. Long trail rides can do a number on ya, and with these I have suffered no chafing, pinching, or rubbing. The material is thin enough to be cool and breathable yet thick enough to protect and smooth out the lumps and bumps. They offer a little bit of compression, so they are flattering and help with muscle fatigue as well. I haven't had them long but they seem very well made. They have experienced some hard wear and tear--feeding, mucking stalls, loading hay--and long, tough rides in the few weeks I've had them and they still look brand new. Nice enough for schooling, but they really shine on the trail--they are the best, most comfortable tights/breeches for long rides I've ever had.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Irideon riding tights I bought these tights according to the size chart but they did not seem to fit my body type well. I'm also very self consicious and I was not happy with how I looked in the brown.
    Date published: 2015-06-09
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable I've always loved this brand and have several breeches by them. They hold together very well yet very light and breathable. Will be ordering more!
    Date published: 2015-05-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from They are good for schooling tights. I prefer low rise and these and a little higher up on the waist. I just wish that they had pockets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Everyday Riding I LOVE these tights! I have three pairs and wear them all the time. So far, they are holding up nicely and they are perfect for warm weather. Breathable, comfortable, and flattering. I am 5'6", 120 lbs, typically a size 0-2 and the small fits great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, wonderful fabric I bought these for an up-coming warm weather riding vacation so haven't worn them yet in our cold weather, but I know they will be perfect for the the vacation as well as for everyday riding. I have other pull on breeches from Irideon...great fit and they wear like iron. I am 5'3, 126 lbs and usually wear a size 4-6 and the small was perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional summer hot weather breech I'm back for my 2nd pair of these breeches. The first pair wore like IRON!! Washed and dried 100s of times and they are still perfect..These breeches are light weight but have excellent coverage. No cellulite or lumps and bumps show through. Great in the heat and humidity. They fit excellent. Hit at the natural waist. Exceptional breeches for summertime.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these for hot weather! I hate thick breeches for long rides when it's hot out. These are so cool and comfortable!
    Date published: 2014-09-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable, Great Quality I haven't ridden in these yet, but they fit great! I ordered a medium in espresso & it is perfect; the fabric is breathable & flexible without being too skin-tight. I like the high waist, but if you're not into that then these probably aren't for you. The only reason I gave it four stars is because I haven't ridden in them yet, but from just trying them on & walking around in them they feel great!
    Date published: 2014-08-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best summer riding tights/breeches out there!! I bought the first tight in black size medium and could not believe how cool I stayed riding ALL day! I had been looking for something to wear for the summer but I feel absolutely naked in Kerrits brand of tights. I am very curvy and muscular and these tights by Irideon add coverage, comfort, style, AND breath ability. I went back and bought all the colors available.
    Date published: 2014-07-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cooler, drier, more comfortable, less revealing I've had one pair of these tight for a few years now and have tried a few other brands, none of which I kept or care to wear. I'm not a fan of the low rise breeches so I really like that these have a more traditional fit with a higher waist. I find the fabric they are made of much less revealing than that of other tights, wicks moisture well and dries quickly, a necessity for me in hot, humid conditions. Don't know what the technical difference is but I do know they look and feel better on me than any of the Kerrits I have tried. And, I find them much less slippery than some and not at all "sticky" with just the right feel in the saddle for me. Their price is much more friendly than most other performance tights also.
    Date published: 2014-07-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from light and comfortable! These tights are really nice! They are lightweight and comfortable, stretch beautifully and fit like a glove but not tight! I've purchased other Irideon products before and they never disappoint me! I use them under my chaps for western dressage and it really helps with the heat factor during the humid summer months in New England!
    Date published: 2014-06-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent for the price I liked these, they are nice and soft, no irritating seams. I wish they made these with belt loops, I would pay an additional $20 if they had belt loops for shows! They look fairly expensive. These are thin breeches. After 1.5 years, one of my pairs has a seam that has started to come undone on my calf. One pair has a tiny hole in the butt. I have 4 pairs of these breeches.
    Date published: 2014-05-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft, cool, and comfee! I really like these tights! They are soft and incredibly comfortable. I thing they will be perfect for summer schooling and for doing barn chores on warmer days. The elastic wasteband is just snug enough so that they stay up (they sit right at your "true waist"). And even though they are thin and cool, they are still flattering.
    Date published: 2014-04-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable This is my third pair of these tights. My two other pairs are both four years old. They have been snagged by branches and thorns on my rides and gone through the wash umpteen times. Yet, they both still look like new. I bought a third pair to increase my chances of having a clean pair at any given time.
    Date published: 2014-04-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice tights I liked these tights and they fit well, but i have really dry skin and found the fabric a bit scratchy for me, so I returned them.
    Date published: 2014-04-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great riding tights I just purchased these and they are very comfortable. They almost feel like leggings. I am able to wear leggings underneath when it is cold and they still feel great.
    Date published: 2014-03-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's all about comfort I can not believe how comfie these tights are! They make riding a pleasure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable My daughter has been wearing these breeches for over a year, so I thought I would try them. Now I know why she likes them. They are comfortable and durable.
