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'!).

    Piper Knee Patch Breeches by SmartPak is rated 4.4901 out of 5 by 1,216.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for two body types I have one daughter who has a thin build and the other has plenty of curves. The pants fit both girls in their sizes. The curvier girl goes up one size, the more slender girl is in her average riding pant size. I put two small darts in the waist band for the slender girl. They are both 5'8" in height and the length is comfortable. I especially like the variety of colors so that the two girls know which pant is theirs - we don't want sisterly squabbles! We all love the features such as the pockets, the well-placed belt loops, and material. So far, these pants wash well and appear to be well made to last a while.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great fit, not the best stitching got these. comfy, pretty true to size, so don't order up. you will be pulling them up a lot. stitching around the knee patches comes undone fast- looking at other reviews seems like a common problem. love the colors.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from the all famous pipers do have some flaws very nice colors- comfortable fit. now the flaws..1) you will be pulling them up a lot.2) not for me, but a lot of people I know have piling on them, I do not put mine in a dryer, so maybe these people do. 3) the stitching stinks. seriously. around the knee patches, I can guarantee if you look at yours, theres loose stitching on the top point. other than those things comfy & fun colors

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from These breeches look great, are really well made and the price is right. I just couldn't get them to fit me properly. Maybe they are too low-rise, maybe I'm one of those in-between sizes (I actually bought two sizes in an attempt to get it right). So sadly, I've had to send them back. I wish they worked for me!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What sorcery is this?! How are these so light, but also so durable? And how are they priced so low? I don't even care really I just want every single color.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great stretch but makes my bum look funky The feel and comfort of the breeches are excellent. My only issue is with the pocket design, makes my bum look funky. Despite the funky bum, I will most likely be purchasing more pairs due to the fact they are so comfortable to ride in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect sizing Loved the fit and design! The sizing chart was very accurate! They came highly recommended and I was very satisfied with the shipping and product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect breeches! I'm so glad I finally purchased these! They look as great in person as they do online, and the material is great! I'm 5 ft tall and was afraid they'd run too big but they don't! These are worth the affordable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and great materials I bought these for schooling as the other brand I was using was not holding up as well due to my increase in ride time. Really like the fabric fit and construction.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from First pair a bit of a dissappointment Hi! I was so excited to finally try Pipers. My first pair fit amazing, these were a bit tighter (same size, these were navy/grey vs. navy/turquoise). I rode in them once and the seams around the knee patches came out! Luckily, you guys were willing to let me return them right away!
    Date published: 2016-05-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than expected I've heard such great things about Pipers and I really wanted to try them as I'm a curvy girl who can't seem to find breeches that fit! I loves the thickness of the fabric and the fit!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looked beautiful, but didn't work out These breeches are beautiful and i wanted to love them so badly. They fit me oddly. I'm not heavy, but I have curves, so beware if you have a slim waist and a booty. This fit in the bum and thighs, but the waist was far, far too large. I still tried to tough it out since this is a common problem for me, but after just 2 rides (and no washes), the inner thighs started pilling terribly. For the cost, i couldn't justify something that looked ratty after just a week. I ultimately returned these for store credit, so I can't complain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love them!!!! I just bought these. Put them on to try them out and I love them. I love the color wheat/teal. They are super soft and comfortable. They are a little lose in the knee area but not to bad at all. Will deff be ordering more.
    Date published: 2016-05-13
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The material quality seems nice but they were way too small in the one size up from what I normally wear (in both Ariat and TS). I could wedge myself into them, but just barely. They're also quite long, which is a problem when you're short and rely on being able to cuff up breeches in order to make them fit (at 4'10" I'd have had to cuff these to my knees...) . So unfortunately these are going to go back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great breeches! I love everything about these breeches! Very reliable, I have worn and washed them many times and they are still the same as when I baught them. Most likely the only breeches that I will be buying in the future. Now if only they made piper riding tights!
    Date published: 2016-05-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from super comfortable I'm absolutely obsessed with these breeches. As soon as I got my first pair in the mail and tried them on, I immediately bought another pair! They fit snug, but have a great stretch for mobility. The colorful seams also make them super fun for schooling.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the colors and material, fit a bit off but fi I bought these because they were on sale, others I know have them and like them, but mostly it was the colors. They are very stretchy but wouldn't stay up, they fit but just not quite right. This was a walking issue, when in the saddle they are perfect. I found myself pulling them up a lot, but when they were up they felt great..so I added a belt to help and now they are very comfy and I would buy more. I only give them 4 stars because of the funny falling down thing

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Quality, Odd Fit I liked the quality of these pants, and although they fit, every time I sat down in them, the back of the pants would slide down. In addition, the stretchiness of the pants combined with thickness made them too bulky and uncomfortable for my liking. I ended up returning them.
    Date published: 2016-05-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best on the market! These are by far the best schooling breech out there. I had no problem ordering, I got a 24L which are the perfect length. Feel like a highend breech. The colors are bright and fun (might I add that they are a perfect addition to any equestrians collection!). Just throw in the wash, the pockets are bit on the small size for a large phone but it still fits. Next we need matching socks!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really cute but terrible fit I was so excited about these because the colors are so cute, and the price was super for what feels like quality fabric. But the fit is TERRIBLE. When I bought my normal size, the legs were almost too tight, but the waist gaps terribly. There were maybe 6" of extra space in the back of the waist, which even a belt could not fix. I was sad to send them back, but the fit is just not good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A look of class! This is my first purchase of Piper Knee Patch Breeches by SmartPak, and I can see why many like them. I bought the navy/emerald pair and they add a nice touch of class when riding my Icelandic horse in competition. The accent color is beautiful and purchasing another pair is tempting. I held back giving them a 5 star rating because like many others, the waist seems a bit large and I do feel like I have to wear a belt with these to keep them from pulling down. Other than the waist issue, they fit true to size. They have a lot of stretch and are well made, with a nice thin material around the lower leg to prevent wrinkles inside a tall boot. I'm sure the other color combos are just as attractive and they seem to have a nice slimming effect. I hope they wash as well as they look and last for awhile. A good investment for the price and quality!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit and so comfortable! I don't know why I waited so long to try these breeches. I'm in love! They feel simultaneously supportive and very free, and even though the fabric feels thicker and fairly durable I don't think they will be too hot in the summer. Also, props to SmartPack once again for their stellar customer service. I had ordered one pair and after the first ride I noticed a defect in the knee patch where the stitching started to unravel. I called SmartPak from the car on my way home from the barn and they shipped me out a replacement that minute, before I even got home and could put the pair I was wearing in the mail. I quickly ordered another pair so I will have an alternate...this could become dangerous for my wallet! Haha

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable! I got a pair of these breeches about a month ago, and I love them! They are very comfortable to ride in. They run pretty true to size. I would definitely recommend these!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Breeches! I have two pairs and love them. They look, feel, and fit wonderfully! Finding pants that I actually feel confident in is a struggle for me and these do it. The lines and stitching look great on every body type and are very flattering. I have honestly never been happier with a pair of riding pants. Kinda like what I would expect if lulu lemon sold riding clothes. They just make you feel so good :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely has its pros and cons I received these Friday and tried them on at home - saw a few problems but nothing bad. I decided to put these breeches to the test and wore them all day Saturday at the schooling dressage show that I was helping run and riding in (so as you can imagine they got quite a workout in the saddle and running around the show grounds). Here are my results:Pros - very comfortable and fit nicely over my shapely hips. I am curvy so this is a plus. The waist is a little big but I much prefer that over a tight one and there wasn't much gapping. Length was good - I am 5'4" and sometimes have to roll up the bottoms, but these were fine. The stretch seems to help "tighten" those wonderful jiggly parts we get as we age. The color is awesome and the style looks very nice!Cons - as others have noted, baggy behind the knee. Luckily that didn't seem to cause any problems while riding or walking around all day in half chaps. Material is a little thick so I'm not sure I will want to wear them it hits the hot South summers with 90% humidity. My biggest complaint is the low rise, especially in the back. As the day progressed my underwear became more and more visible - I was wearing the SmartPack underwear. Thankfully I was wearing a long enough shirt to hide it when I was bending over. This part really bothered me so now I will need to make sure to wear different underwear. The breech also tended to fall down so it was bunching up in the crotch area.So I've decided to keep them as schooling breeches, but not the kind that I can wear all day....just to wear for a few hours at the barn. Not sure if I will buy more of them at this point because the low rise really bothered me and I have other low rise breeches by Ovation that don't seem to have this problem and are less expensive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great everyday pants I own 4 pairs and love them. They are practical riding pants...stretchy, colorful, cute and best part .... have pockets you can actually use!! I work at a barn so in the course of the day I ride, teach lessons and do chores and they are a great universal pant. The only downfall is that certain colors for differently on the thighs and hips.
