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 4.4977 out of 5 by 1,077.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great breeches! I wish i had a pair of Piper breeches for everyday of the week!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Fit - Saggy Crotch - Baggy Knees I bought an original pair of pipers a few years ago and while the fit wasn't great at the price I was going to keep them. I ended up returning them after the knee patch came unstitched before I even got on a horse.I bought the newest pairs on sale as well hoping that the rumors of improved fit were true and while I do like the new fabric these breeches made it look like I was waiting for male anatomy. I try to be as positive as I can about affordable products but save yourself the time and pass on these...I have attached some pictures of the issues I faced - in both a 26 and 28. I am 5'5 and pretty average build. I have a small waist and larger rear/thighs for more of an hour glass shape and these breeches sag at the crotch, gap at the waist, and are baggy at the knee :( try as I might I couldn't love these breeches no matter how hard I tried and had to return them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best breeches i have ever bought I bought a pair of these due to a friend telling me about them. They are the best breeches I have ever bought. I will never go back to any others. They are durable, very comfortable and over all a great product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great fit and look, but didn't last. I really loved these breeches at first, the color was great and they were very comfortable. The waist does seem large compared to the way the rest of the breeches fit, but this was easily fixed with a belt. Unfortunately, the seams and fabric along the euro seat have begun to pucker and they are no longer the nice looking breeches I purchased. One of the side seams has also come apart. I wish the quality had held up, since the comfort and look was great initially.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Schooling Breeches Ever I absolutely love these breeches! These are perfect for everyday schooling, not to mention fun and trendy. The hold up well to being washed every week and are super comfortable. These are the equivalent to a more comfortable (and affordable) Tailored Sportsman, which are one of the few companies that offer quality breeches in an array of colors. My only complaint is they need to come in even more colors! If you are debating buying these, just go ahead and add them to your cart already!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Newer purchases not the same quality as older I purchased a pair of Pipers in July 2014 and to this day they've held up. Going on that experience I then purchased two more pairs in late 2014 only to be sorely disappointed. The first pair are still great, but the second two had the seams 'blow out' making the Euro seat look like a diaper within a couple months of wear. I'm not an everyday rider, I probably ride 2 days/week on average and I have plenty of breeches I rotate through. Something must have happened to their sourcing in the end of 2014, regardless I will never purchase a pair of these breeches again. I'm sad to write this review because I love Smartpak but save your money and buy a nicer brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of breeches! My daughter has wanted a pair of Piper breeches for months! She received a pair for her bday and they are her new fave pair!!! She is saving $$$ to purchase the colors she doesn't have. Great fit and enough give that they are comfortable riding. You can't find a better pair for the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very comfy I got 2 pair as a Christmas gift, and I couldn't be happier with the fit, the fabric and the beautiful colors! They are very well made (I sew, so I know good quality) I would highly recommend these breechs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought these pants a few weeks ago but due to weather I have only ridden in them once. Only have had two issues with them and that is that they bunch in the knee and one of the belt loops ripped. Other than that they're great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Awesome breeches. My favorite beeches. I have multiple pairs of these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous breeches I have three pairs of these breeches and absolutely love them. They are extremely high quality for the price, they fit well and are very flattering. I love the weight of them and the sock bottom is super nice. I don't think the fabric is too heavy, even for the Florida heat and humidity.The only issue I've had with Pipers is that sometimes the stitching can be a little weak. I've never had anything come apart, only the occasional loose stitch. In my mind this is no big deal as they are still fabulous schooling breeches at an amazing price

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute and comfortable I really like these breeches, the material feels durable, but is still comfortable. They are very well-made, true to size, and I like the styling-contrasting colors. I got them in the navy/emerald, and just bought a second pair in the black/white. They are great schooling pants for me, as I work-ride for a trainer and ride multiple horses a day, as well as groom, prep, hose them off, etc..I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because they don't stay up very well, and lose their shape a bit after a long day of riding. I could prob just wear a belt, but might be helpful for others to know.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking and great fit! I'd been wanting to try the Pipers for a while and I'm so glad I did! The fit is very comfortable and flattering and I love all the color choices. Now I want a pair in every color! I got size 32 and feel they fit true to size. The only thing I would change if I was being picky is I could stand to have them about an inch lower rise, I am extremely short-waisted so they still come up to my navel, but it's not uncomfortable and I realize 99% of people won't have that problem! Still give them 5 stars!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super cute, fit great I have 2 pairs of Pipers and love them! I'm a 30R in Ariat breeches, and the 30R in Pipers fit spot-on. After only 4 rides some of the thread stitching on the knee patches is already ripping on one pair... will have to see if it gets much worse. Also, just an FYI that the charcoal gray has more of a brown tinge than I was expecting.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very cute, but didn't fit me well Got these as a gift since they look very cute but I was expecting them to be a bit more fitted, especially at the lower leg.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Breeches Ever! I own three pairs of these breeches and they're by far the best and comfiest breeches I own! I love how they come in all different fun colors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these breeches!! I bought these breeches a few months ago when they had a huge sale, and fell in love. I bought a second pair shortly after and now I only wear my piper breeches when riding. They are so comfortable, stretchy, and they fit perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfy, well fitting, everything smartpak describes ive only ridden in them twice, but theyre so great! nothing bad to say at all! only issue is the waist is a little big for me but going down a size would make it too tight in the leg but i always wear a belt anyway.
    Date published: 2016-01-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfy I own several pairs of these breeches and I love them. Super comfy and I LOVE all the pockets. They are a bit thicker but not to the point where you get too hot in warm weather. But thick enough to not have to wear a thong to avoid lines. ;) the fun colors are a plus! These breeches are definitely great for everyday schooling.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from love the color, but the waist too big! I absolutely love the color and quality of my piper knee patch breeches. They've held up very well all summer and fall. As someone else has mentioned, they are a heavier weight breech, which makes them perfect for cooler weather, but too warm when it's very hot out.While I do love these, I wish they fit a bit better. They fit great through the leg and hip, but the waist is enormous - MAJOR gappage in the back (I'm talking at least 2 inches). The wide waistband does not help prevent gapping at all. A size smaller makes everything else too small.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from These breeches ( got a couple different colors ) fit very well, except right at the ankle. Seems to be a bit tight after a while, but hoping they stretch out over time as I ride.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everyone compliments these breeches! This is my 2d pair of Piper breeches and I love them. They fit great and are really comfortable. Almost every one of my riding friends has complimented me on them. The only negative, and only with the most recent pair, is that the stitching around the zipper has started to come undone.
