Why We Love This

Yoga pants, meet breeches. Piper Knit 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.

    Piper Knit Mid-rise Breeches by SmartPak - Knee Patch is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 248.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the fit Like the higher rise and stretch of these pants, and they come in great colors!
    Date published: 2020-01-03
    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 Awesome color This is my second pair and they hold up! The colors are also so GORGEOUS!!

    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.

    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 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable I’m thrilled with these breeches, I tried several sizes and finally found the right fit. We don’t have a tack shop here and thank goodness for smart paks great return policy and fabulous customer service!

    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.

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these! I received these breeches for my birthday and I love them! I prefer mid rise jeans rather than low rise jeans and I feel the same way about breeches. These fit great and are super comfortable!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As someone who hates breeches I do love these! Only 4 starred it because I hate anything that isnt sweats and yoga pants but these breeches despite that are so comfy!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable but stitching is coming out I really enjoyed riding in these, they were very comfortable and fit great. However, after 1 ride I am already noticing the stitching coming out. Not sure how long these will last. Same thing happened with a pair of Piper tights too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best breeches ever!!!! Absolutely love these breeches the only breeches I will ever own the knee patches are so nice and grippy. SUPER comfortable and extremely durable. I've hd one of my pairs for four years and still look brand new.
    Date published: 2019-01-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Breeches I've owned two pairs of these for over 2 years now and they are by far my most worn breeches. They're stretchy, flattering, and way more comfortable than anything else I own. I found the fit to be completely different than the original Pipers and I prefer these so much more. Despite the heavy use, they still look brand new after a wash and they've survived some sticky situations around the barn without tearing. Excellent quality for the price, I will definitely be buying more!
    Date published: 2019-01-20
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but color fades!! I like these knit breeches very much but after 6-8 months they fade terribly in the thigh area!! Once faded, they look dirty and I feel bad wearing them. I don't know what to do to stop or fix the faded areas. Does anyone have a suggestion???
    Date published: 2018-12-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I may have a Piper problem! I now own over a dozen different pairs of Piper breeches. When they are on sale, I just can't resist adding to my collection of fun colors. I have two pairs of the knit silicone knee patch ones. I do have to wear a belt with all my Pipers, as the waist always seems big. I even have three different sizes. The knit breeches are the lightest of all the Pipers and are super stretchy. They are so comfortable. It's almost like riding in pajamas. I just got the hunter green ones and they are absolutely beautiful. They are my favorite color so far, The only thing that would make these breeches better would be if they had back pockets, which are one of my favorite features of the Pipers.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really awful breech These breeches are the worst breeches I've ever had the displeasure of trying on. They are incredibly unflattering, unsupportive, and feel like cheap sweatpant material in the worst way. They feel like they'll get baggy really quickly, and look so cheap, especially around the waistband. They're also really thin, and I bought them to be my fall breeches. The fit was fighting me from the second I tried to put them on, even though they're too big. I hate the pattern on the knee patch. I thought I could live with it, but it's truly tacky. I would suggest the Tredstep breeches, I regret not getting those and will be doing so after these nightmares return to where they came from. Maybe I was jaded by my terrible experiences, but I really, really hate these pants.
