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'!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly warm and comfortable I wear a Small in Kerrits and these are true-to-size -- snug but comfortable and not too tight. I have had some windproof clothing items before that were stiff, but these tights are very soft and comfortable. I prefer Kerrit's due to the flat seams.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and comfortable I bought these last year and they are now my favorite pair of breeches for the winter. They are super comfortable and keep me very warm even on the coldest days.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Winter Breeches My daughter loves these winter breeches. I know she stays warm while riding when the temperatures are really cold. The fleece lining wicks away moisture and keeps her warm. Definitely a winner!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable pants I own! I love these tights for everything from daily barn chores to actual riding. I was drawn to them due to another reviewer remarking that hay and other debris doesn't stick to them. That is certainly true. I even had to kneel down on the frozen ground earlier tonight and I didn't feel the cold through them even then. It's been coldish here (30's) but the past couple days have been pretty bitter with temps in the teens and single digits and I still stayed warm. I love how comfortable and practical they are!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great update to warm winter pants! I finally wore out my old Kerrits Sit Tight N Warm Breeches (they lasted MANY years) and had to buy new ones. I love the new updates to these great breeches - lower waist and thinner stretch fabric on the calf. But they still have the same warmth, comfort, and quality workmanship. We get some cold days in NY and I can wear them with or without an extra base layer!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! They are the most comfortable pants and warm. Also for those of us with a backside, you don't have to fight to keep your backside from showing when you ride!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad at all First, a couple of facts prior to my opinion: 1. I sized up one size when I purchased them. I figured like many winter/fleece breeches, they would come a little snug. Nope! I would say they are true to size. I decided to keep the pair I got just cause it's cold now, and I don't want to wait for an exchange, but you probably will want to go with your actual size. 2. They are warm. Wore them today for the first time riding (in fact, I still have them on. They are snuggly.) in roughly 32 degree weather, inside a non-heated arena which usually stays about 10 degrees warmer than the temp outside. They did keep me pretty warm, but as the temps drop further, I'm not sure it they will be enough.Overall, I think they are great, but I'm not sure if the relatively high price tag is worth it. They are comfy, but I'm not sure they'll keep me warm through the whole winter. I think I still prefer my other super cold weather breeches (not Kerrits).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very warm, practical schooling breech. I keep my horses at my house so when I ride I also have barn chores to do. These breeches were great for riding in the cold and doing chores. I loved that I was able to throw hay out and it didn't stick to the breeches.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kerrits sit tight n warm knee patch breech The fit nicely, except I wish they came in a short version. They are a little long in the keg for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice & warm Got these for my daughter - she loves them - says they are toasty warm and fit great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality I bought a size Small and they fit well, though the elastic is a bit tight at the ankles even though I am small boned and have skinny legs. I have no problem pulling them on over my hips and the waist is very comfortable with the wider style waist band. I like the belt loops which enable me to wear a belt. This makes these riding pants more of a breech, rather than a tight. The outer fabric is excellent because it has a bit of a sheen and so it sheds hay material. The inner fabric is nice and warm. Good quality for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable winter breeches I have owned Kerrits Sit Tight "N Warm for about 3 weeks. They are very comfortable and warm. My guess is that they will last a few years. I ride about 4-5 times a week. They are a little loose in the waist. I am 5"3 and weigh 112 lbs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these breeches!! I particularly bought they because of the soft shell outer layer. After getting them I am in love with them! I wish they kept me a pinch warmer but I do live in the polar vortex lol! Totally worth the $$ :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from i love these breeches! these by far are my favorite winter breeches! so stretchy and comfortable. usually breeches are annoying and tight on my ankles too but these don't have that problem. and for winter breeches you can't tell by how flexible they are. they're very warm and comfy when i'm done with my ride i'm not in a hurry to take them off either. they do seem to run a little long though but i'm 5'9 i don't have any issues with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very comfortable and warm I am 5'3" and do not have much of a waistline and have found that the Kerrits brand works well for me. These breeches fit perfect and feel great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too big! I normally wear an XL in the Kerrits brand tights. All the reviews said the legs were too small, but I have very small legs compared to the rest of me, so I figured I'd take a chance and get an XL. I still had room in the legs, but the waist fit comfortably. I wanted to try a L, but they were out. Talked directly to Kerrits and they are exchanging them on a L. The waist might be tighter, but the legs will fit better. Also, I have a pair of Sticky Seat winter pants and I must say I like them better. They have a flair leg and are very flattering. Both are very warm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter pants. This is the second pair I bought because I liked the first so much. The second pair fits a bit differently that the first; tighter in the lower leg, but can still get them on. They wash and wear well. I did have a problem with the hem coming out of the first pair after the second time I wore them. I sewed it back together and had no further problems.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and comfy! Love the pants so warm! I do wish the calf/ ankle area was a bit larger for the waist size but other than that I love em!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Snuggly without bulk! I'm a big fan of Kerrits breeches and these did not disappoint. I ordered my normal Kerrits size and they fit perfectly. They have a great wind resistant fabric that my husband says reminds him of a wet suit. They are instantly warm without the bulk and hassle that I normally deal with pulling riding pants on over long johns.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from warmer than sunshine! These breeches are comfortable and great to ride in and they have the added benefit of being warm.  I spent most of yesterday and today hiking in 14-25 degree weather and I am not thinking about the wind chill.  These pants are GREAT.  So warm I can't wear them indoors but as soon as I am outside….so glad I bought two pair last year!  They hold up great in the washer and drier, too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra comfy and warm Perfect fit, and very comfortable and warm. I do use a belt to stop them working their way down, but no problem. These pants are great. I bought a size small and I'm 5'4 118lbs with curvy hips.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best winter breeches out there I have a pair of Kerrits winter breeches that are over 10 years old. They were my favorite winter breeches so I thought I'd try these. They are excellent quality. The outer fabric is strong and wind resistant. Dirt wipes off easily. They run true to size. Love them and expect they will last a long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very warm and flattering Not too thick to look bulky, and fit well under boots. However lower leg gets tight to get leg into so no room for long-underwear (and I have VERY small calves)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yet another fantastic Kerrits product! My favorite winter breech ever! Repels hay and some moisture (to an extent) while keeping you warm even on the coldest days!
