Why We Love This

Yoga pants, meet breeches. Piper Knit 2.0 Breeches by SmartPak are the same breeches you have grown to love but now with an updated silicone design chosen by our customers! These breeches are designed to be the most comfortable pair of breeches you’ve ever worn. Made from a super soft cotton blend fabric, they offer excellent four-way stretch, recovery, and compression. Plus, the set-in waistband has a concealed, elasticized interior band for forgiving comfort. Not to mention, if you’re looking for a modern fit, you’ll love the Mid-rise design that fits just below the belly button. They also feature a silicone full seat in a fun pattern for extra grip when you need it most. They even have the features of traditional breeches with a sturdy YKK front zip, two front pockets, and 2" belt loops for a polished look. 

Like all Piper breeches, they come in a variety of fun colors to show off your style and let you coordinate with the rest of the Piper collection. Because we know that bunched breeches and bulky closures under boots can be super annoying, we’ve included an ergonomic elastic sock bottom that provides a streamlined, comfortable fit. Finally, these breeches are as easy to care for as they are to wear – just throw them in the wash and hang to dry. These Piper knit breeches have everything you’ve been looking for in a fun, super comfortable schooling breech. The only question is what color (or colors!) will you pick? 

Imported.

Hassle-Free Returns

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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best breeches I own -- best quality too I purchased about 7-10 different pair of breeches on sale, as i just started riding and wasn't sure what I would like and didn't want to pay retail in the stores. Piper brand was on sale for a certain group of colors/sizes so I thought I would try it. They are the most WELL-CONSTRUCTED, heavy-duty material of all of the breeches I onw; in fact, had to owder another pair because I keep wearing these over and over and have to wash them several times a week (my barn is super muddy). I also ordered a jacket and shirt in the brand, and if they are the same quality I will be a loyal customer. If you are like me (most horse people have same values) we need something quality that will last for years, hold its shape, and that we can feel good in ... who doesn't love a pair of boots that we have had "forever" and they look like they belong on our feet? Piper people. Worth it and they have sales/clearance all of the time if you are price sensitive, although I did subsequently order a vest that was full price because it was affordable compared to other brands. Order with confidence.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Going Back to Low-Rise or Velcro-Bottoms! I bought these about 3-4 months ago (the older model) because I had been getting awful blisters on my ankles from the velcro-bottoms and I didn't want to spend $100+ on sock-bottom breeches. OH. MY. GOSH. These are incredible! They're SOOOO comfortable and another problem I had was that in my low-rise breeches the waitband sat right on my hip bone and my belt would rub and also give me blisters. With these that's not the case! Plus, they're very flattering ;). I cannot reccomend these enough. And the silicon is very good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite breeches I have been a dedicated wearer of another brand but a Smartpak sale enticed me to buy these breeches, and I don't regret it at all. They are possibly the most comfortable breeches I own. The knit is substantial and doesn't feel like a tight and they fit true to size. Great color too (wine).The only negative I can think of (and it's so minor) is that they sag a little when walking. I liked them so much that I also bought the full seat version.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for Schooling! Great for the price. The green is a really rich color and an easy way to spice up your schooling outfit. They're definitely thin so I'm going to wash them as infrequently as possible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable and they look great!! I have a true hourglass figure. My waist is small and my hips/thighs are, well, not small. I also have larger-than-average calves so like breeches to have adequate stretch in that area. These fit perfectly. I ordered a 32L and there's room in the waist but thanks to the appropriate stretch/fit/fabric, they don't slide or anything. No belt needed in winter months with my layered tops but in the summer, I'd definitely wear a belt and tuck in a shirt.
    Date published: 2019-12-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So soft and comfortable I have a lot of breeches and the pipers are my favorite by far! The material is so soft and stretchy, but thick enough to keep me warm in the winter. The silicone knee patch is so cute and functional. I have a few pairs of the low rise, but I like the mid rise better for my curvy, short torso-ed body! I would love if they could make these is in petite/short sizes, and if they could make the signature wide waistband they have for low rise, on these mid rise.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from love the feel and fit will have to wait til it's a bit warmer in wisconsin to actually try them but the feel and fit are really nice and couldn't beat the clearance price. Same size I order all my other pipers in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable for an Amazing Price These breeches are so comfortable! As a curvy rider, I can attest that these fit amazingly around every part of me. I have never felt more comfortable and confident in a pair of breeches. They are super flattering and the elastic bottom makes it easy to fit in boots without bunching. My go to pair for schooling!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable breeches My teenage daughter loves the fit of these and says they are very comfortable. Unfortunately, she's only worn them a couple times and some of the stitching is coming loose at the knee patches. I am not sure if that is just a fluke since her other Piper breeches are extremely durable. Glad we got them on sale. Maybe an issue with the softer material?
    Date published: 2019-11-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice breeches. They are extra stretchiy I have thin legs and these have a lot of stretch so they are not as form fitting but will be easy to layer a thermal tight under for winter. I haven’t had them long enough to rate durability but all my piper breeches have held up really well over the past 3 years.
    Date published: 2019-10-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these! I NEVER find breeches that fit me. I could tell the minute I started pulling these on that I would love them. I have a high waist so low rise is awful on me. These fit just right at my belly button. They are so comfortable and look nice even on my slightly overweight self. The fabric is nice quality and feel. I like how stretchy they are. I want to order more but I'm going to wait till the spring to see how these wear. It's getting cold here so it's winter riding pants time anyway.
    Date published: 2019-10-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek, Comfortable, and Professional During a Buy 2, Get 1 Free sale, I got these in black, pale gray, and hunter green (the color range is definitely a big selling point). I'm really pleased by the fit, which is true to size but not restrictive. The knit makes them soft and flexible, so nothing's digging in. The sock-style bottoms are great, and I could never go back to bulky Velcro bottoms. They're a nice mid-weight, so not the coolest nor the warmest, but perfect for fall and spring. I personally like the mid-rise style, which doesn't pull down or gap in the back. Not so highly priced that you fear wearing them for schooling, but they look nice enough for showing (which is what I got the pale gray for). I'm considering a pair of these in full-seats now!
    Date published: 2019-10-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite breeches I recommend these to everyone! The original pipers don’t fit me quite right, but these fit amazing. They have the perfect amount of stretch, the rise is perfect and they don’t fall down, and I can ride in them in the Florida summers no problem. Great for both showing and schooling. I have several pairs and they stand up very well. They do run a bit large and long though.
    Date published: 2019-10-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My fav breeches by a mile I can't believe how much I love these breeches. I ordered some to try out because I need another pair and didn't want to spend $150+ on them. I figured these might be low quality based on the price. NOPE. They are absolutely the most comfortable breeches in my wardrobe, even more so than pairs that cost double. Here's what I like about them: -They're lightweight. Temperatures are above 80 for about 7 months out of the year where I live and these are great for hot weather. -They're thin enough to make tucking in shirts easy but heavy enough to avoid showing lines/every lump and bump. -The longs are actually long. I assume it's the stretch factor but these actually come down to my ankles until my other "long" breeches. -They wash and dry well. -The mid-rise is super flattering. High enough to make sure everything is covered but not so high that it draws attention to my short waist. I am a big fan of knee-patch breeches (over full-seat) so I hope SmartPak will release some more fun colors for this product. If you're considering these breeches, go for it! What you get for the price is absolutely incredible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for under chaps! I ride western and my show chaps are hunter green. These are fantastic for wearing under chaps. With a belt they stay in place and aren't slippery like a lot if showmanship pants. Comfortable without being too constricting or too bulky.
    Date published: 2019-08-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for curvy riders! I have a hard time finding breeches that fit me as I'm short and curvy (5'4"/190 lbs). However these are GREAT!!! I also love the fabric as they don't pill as much as some of the other pipers I've gotten. Very comfy and fit great. Belt loops are wonderful, and they have good sized pockets!
    Date published: 2019-06-22
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor quality but nice breeches. Oh Smartpark, these breeches would be so great if they had back pockets and a little wider waist band. The material is really soft and nice. I want to like woven fabric breeches but I don’t; this knit is perfect. I am disappointed in several pairs I have bought during your Piper sales. One pair the zipper broke on a day I needed to look particularly professional and could not since I have to untuck my shirt to hide my open fly. Another pair I was just shipped has stitching coming out at the zipper seams and on the knee patches. As a working professional, I need affordable breeches that will last and these aren’t really holding up in that category. No one makes anything with good quality anymore. I do get complements on these breeches so if you aren’t planning on wearing them 15-18 hours a day and ride only one horse they may work great for you. For rough workman days of riding, teaching, tractor driving, chores and trips to the vet clinic and meetings with clients they might be ok if the stitching decides not to fall out. Back pockets. I’m just saying.
