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.

    Piper Breeches by SmartPak- Softshell Winter Knee Patch is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really like the material and warmth Good fit in length for me at 5'3 1/2" tall. The one feature I do not like is they sag in the seat. I tried a smaller size andv thet were too tight.
    Date published: 2019-02-10
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ended up disappointed! I'm a huge fan of Pipers - I have a few pairs of the Knit & a pair of the Tan Knee Patch. Even though the material between those two models is totally different, I was satisfied that the fit was consistent. That didn't end up being the case with these winter Pipers! The material itself is AWESOME - I love the softshell outer, and the fleece inner is cozy without being overheating. Easy to sweep the dirt and horse hair off. However, the fit seems super weird with these. I'm normally a 24R in other Pipers & these fit completely different. The overall silhouette/cut is much more like the Hadleys, which is OK, I have a pair of Hadleys as well...just definitely not what I expected. Not sure if it's the construction of the material, but the waistband is super gappy in the back when riding, and there's a bunch of extra material around the back of my thighs/knee area. It almost seems like I *need* to wear another pair of tights underneath these to fill them out. Wouldn't buy another pair and these probably won't be in my regular lineup. :(

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent I have two pairs of these, that I ordered within a month of each other and they are the same size, but they both fit ever so slightly differently (one being a hair smaller than the other). They are warm and I like how comfy the material is on the inside, but I really don't love the waistband. It is not elastic at all, and when you first put them on it is a bit of a struggle to do them up. However ordering a size up would not be helpful, as the waistband does relax throughout the day and you find yourself grateful for your belt. Plus the rest of the pant fits true to size. I feel as though the little hook is too far over, but honestly a more elastic waistband would make these pants much better overall. While they are warm and windproof, the outside material makes them a little bit slick when in the saddle as compared to other regular season breeches. Should probably note that though I live in Florida, I have worn them in temps ranging from 20s-60s (some FL winter days warm up fast in the middle of the afternoon!) and they remain warm and comfy without getting too hot when the temps go up. I think they're a solid winter pant with some room for improvement.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very warm. Weird fit. The fabric on these pants is just right for winter riding--soft and warm, but not bulky or stiff. And there are really nice design touches, like the back zippered pocket. They look like real breeches, not like tights, which I appreciate. But I did want to add something about the fit since so many reviewers seem to think they ran large. I think the design might have changed recently? I wear a 30R in TS and Pikeur breeches, and the 32R in these, which I bought due to stocking issues during a sale, was still pretty tight in the thighs, and there's no way I could have gone smaller. The waist, on the other hand, was pretty huge and gappy. And the sock bottoms were too big as well. I think I am a little too curvy for the Piper fit, generally. But I'm personally ok with an imperfect fit on a really warm pair of breeches at this pricepoint. So, my advice: If you're not a stick shape, size up.
    Date published: 2019-02-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm but not too thick These are very nice and well made. They are warm, but not super thick, so not as warm as some. They run smaller than say, Tailored Sportsman. I wear a size 10 in regular pants, and need a 34 in these.
    Date published: 2019-02-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So warm! Inconsistent fit. I bought a pair of these in black last winter and quickly fell in love. These are truely some of the warmest breeches I've ever had. Much warmer than fleece, and the fabric helps block the wind. This year I bought a second pair in charcoal and the fit is different, and not in a good way - tighter at the calves, looser in the hips, and the legs are shorter. It wasn't extreme enough to make me return them, but they are not as comfortable or flattering as the first pair, hence only 4 stars instead of 5.
    Date published: 2019-01-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great material Perfect for riding in my unheated indoor on those cold winter days. The material is smooth so no hay sticks to it. The only thing I don’t care for is the waistband gapes in back. I have large hips and the Piper breeches don’t quite go up high enough to let the waistband lie flat.
    Date published: 2019-01-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, comfortable winter breeches! I bought a couple pairs of these last month, in anticipation of winter riding. I've never had fleece-lined winter breeches before, I thought that they'd be bulky and stiff. But these are great! Really comfortable, good fit, and warm. I have other pairs of regular Pipers and I think these fit pretty similarly. I've only worn them a few times so can't speak to durability yet.
    Date published: 2018-12-22
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Two sizes didn't fit, had to send back I'm usually a 24 or a 26 in breeches. I have a 26in waist, 37in hip, am 4'11, and weigh about 110lb. Petite and curvy. I wanted to love these so badly, but I couldn't. I purchased them in a 24R and 26R. While the 24 was a little tighter, they were both weird and baggy at the lower tummy area & crotch. I tried pulling them up to pick up the extra fabric and that didn't help either. My body just isn't shaped that way at all. I'm giving them an extra star through for the fabric quality - they felt really nice and thick and I can see how they would serve their purpose and be a bit more windproof than the knit Piper breeches.
    Date published: 2018-12-06
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from just not for me nice breeches but I was told they were designed like tights. just not my preference, but a nice product.
