Why We Love This

Piper breeches are too fun to have just one! These are the original Piper breeches that started it all and there’s a reason they’re our best-selling breech. This style features a fashionable low-rise design that hits below the belly button for a modern look, as well as figure-flattering design elements like Euro seat styling and a 2” wide, contoured waistband that eliminates unsightly gapping. They also have knee patches made out of Clarino™, a synthetic, suede-like material that offers excellent grip, stretch, and durability. 

Like all of the Piper breeches, they come in a variety of fun color options, so you can show off your style in the schooling ring. The contrast stitching and pocket trim add just the right amount of flair to your riding ensemble. Plus, you can mix and match with the rest of our Piper collection to create the perfect schooling outfit to show off your style. You’ll feel as good as you look in the comfortable, four-way stretch fabric that moves with you in the saddle. 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. Four pockets, including modern, jeans-style rear pockets, give you plenty of storage and can even accommodate most cell phones. 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 breeches have everything you’ve been looking for in a fun schooling breech. The only question is what color (or colors!) will you pick?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite breeches! So I have ALWAYS wanted a pair of these breeches, so when I saw them go on sale I HAD to get a pair! I will say that at first I was worried because i originally wanted high waisted (but they didn't have them in the color I wanted). But they have me totally sold! They feel so light and stretchy that I will never buy a pair of other breeches!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only breeches I will ever buy! I bought 3 pairs of piper knee patch breeches during the B2G1 sale. These are probably my 5th through 7th pair of pipers and I LOVE THEM. I think my favorite feature on these breeches are the nice big back pockets. They fit my iPhone 11 plus in them without it ever falling out, even when I’ve fallen off. Actually, one time when I fell off into a stream it would have been good if my phone fell out on the ground before hitting the water, but it didn’t. It got dunked with the rest of me. Anyway, the other great features are the nice huge front pockets as well. They aren’t those stupid fake or teeny tiny ladies pants pockets. You can fit your entire hand in them. The knee patches are grippy and they don’t bunch up at all. The fit is perfect. The material used to make these is thick and high quality but they don’t feel too hot in the summer and they are not stiff at all. They really feel super comfy. The fit around the calf is perfect for tall boots because of the skinnier stretch material around the ankle and calf. It’s a really smart design and it looks great even if you’re wearing paddock boots or sneakers. The choices of colors is out of control. I love all the choices and bright colors!!! I can’t even decide if that’s my favorite feature. It might be.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke down after 3 months I bought these breeches at Equine Affaire in November and I absolutely loved them. Super comfortable, beautiful color (ocean blue), and they looked great. However, about a month ago the inner thigh wore straight through and now there’s a huge hole on the upper inner thigh fabric of both legs. I work in the horse industry, but I’ve only worn these breeches 1-2 lx/week for the past few months. I’ve never had a pair break down this quickly, and I’m quite disappointed by the quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but... I want to start off saying I like the product itself and the quality. However I bought a pair three weeks ago and have worn them only twice. It may be my personal build, or something of the sort - but the crotch was low and greatly annoyed me. Otherwise the sizing was on point. This happens to me with some other brands sometimes and I'd never tried these breeches before so I bought them on sale. So if this has ever happened to you, maybe try the mid rise instead.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good breeches. I bought these for the color. I usually wear the mid rise and prefer it, but I wanted the new fall color (navy and gold). As far as low rise go these are reasonable, but I still think they should produce the full color line in mid rise.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I just bought 3 pairs of Piper's. I must say the full seat are a much better option. I bought a pair of knee patch ones and within a few hours of wearing them there's already piling in the thighs. I expected alot more from these

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made it right There was a kerfuffle regarding availability of this product on sale. SmartPak stayed true to their excellent customer service ethic and made it right. Although I am only 5'5" the "long" version fits more comfortably than the regular at same waist size.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So cute but not so durable I have owned two pairs of these pants, and they are SO comfy. I love the fit and they always feel very secure. The colors are fun and got lots of compliments. However, both pairs have had construction issues. The belt loops come undone, the stitching is unraveling, and the pilling in the thighs is really bad. I rode twice a week, and would alternate the pants each week to help minimize washing. It's so disappointing, because I still love these pants, but I'd be hesitant to purchase another pair.
    Date published: 2019-08-26
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from These breeches are great, except for the fact that the zipper does fall down easily, and they tend to slide down my hips when I walk. I feel much better when I wear a belt with these. I did order the wrong size of a 26R, but customer service refunded me completely and gave me free return shipping! The 24R fits me almost perfectly at 5'2 and 105 pounds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering cut with deep pockets! I now own three pairs of these breeches. AWESOME stretch and comfort. They keep you tucked in nicely, so they will feel snug at first, but I did not think about them when I rode - they are comfy and don't pinch. Deep pockets keep your cell phone. Mid-rise is flattering. I am 5'5" 130lb and I wear size 28R. Love these!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun colors but not durable I bought these in January and was ecstatic to finally find fun colored breeches that didn't break the bank. When I put them on, they were comfortable and flattering. But then I went to pull them up and all the stitching on the belt loops came undone! I didn't think it was that big of a deal as nobody would be looking at my belt loops. But then the stitching started to come undone on the knee patches too! That bugged me more so I started to question my purchase then. What was the final straw was the major pilling in the thighs and the zipper that wouldn't stay up. I hate that after a ride I have to immediately check my zipper and worry about when they'll rip.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loved my first pair...this second is poorly made I have a pair of Pipers that Ive been riding in (avg 2 days/week in this pair) for YEARS and after running through the wash, they still look new. I received a new pair for my birthday, April 21. Ive ridden in them exactly 3 times and havent washed them yet. THEY ARE UNRAVELLING! I couldn't be more disappointed. Theyve gone up in price since my last pair and apparently, down in quality. Pros - still look super cute, fit well, comfy, true to size Cons - stitching is poor quality Ultimately, I would not recommend these.
    Date published: 2019-05-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from These fit well, and the back pockets are the selling point, but they’re more slippery than all the other breeches I own- they just didn’t feel as good in the saddle as other brands. I love the Hadley line, so I’ll be sticking to those versus the Pipers when I order the smartpak brand

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weak fabric I love my pipers but, the fabric is so weak I've already worn holes through the seat and I haven't even had them for a year! If there was stronger fabric put on the seat and at the top of the inner thighs I would totally repurchase a pair but there isn't so I'm going to pass.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value This brand of breeches are the best out there! So well made great fit,much more durable than any other brands I’ve tried. So very pleased with this brand
    Date published: 2019-04-25
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I wanted to love them... but don't quite I had heard great things about Piper breeches, and admired the colors, for years. When I finally got a pair for myself, I was... Underwhelmed. The material is great - stretchy and thick fabric, great color choices. But the fit just isn't right for me: the legs are too tight and waist too large, so they tend to slide down or make the "crotch pouch", so I'm constantly adjusting, even with a belt. The style is very flattering, but hopping about to adjust them every five minutes isn't. Plus, the logo and some stitching came undone after two wears, one wash (following care directions). So while these breeches are okay and I will continue to wear them, they are not first in my rotation, and I probably will put my money into Kerrits or Irideon over Pipers in the future. Disappointed.
    Date published: 2019-04-23
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super cute & comfortable! I really like these breeches! They are comfortable and wipe clean easily, and don't hold onto hair as I bought them during shedding season and it hasn't been too bad. At first I thought the back pockets were inconvenient, as they are shaped to avoid touching the saddle but I've gotten plenty of compliments on them and they do fit my iPhone 7. The only thing is that I wish they came in a short option, as I am 5'1 and the fabric bunches together around my ankles and puts some pressure on my skin. One thing that I don't see mentioned in a lot of reviews is that they have a VERY reinforced seam in the middle, which is amazing, because I hate when my breeches give me a cameltoe and these absolutely do not do that! Yay!
    Date published: 2019-03-27
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Holes These have always been my go to and favorite breeches. I’ve got a little more in the trunk with wider hips and these fit me great. However after constant use, my now third pair as started to pill in the thigh region, and I’ve had to retire them completely now that the pilling has turned into holes. Another thing with these breeches is my zippers have gone as well with time, I have to use a small hair elastic to keep them up. It’s a shame, these breeches are so cute and comfortable, but do not last and therefore I can’t justify spending the price on them again.
    Date published: 2019-03-19
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality I really wanted to like these but the quality is awful. I bought these back in November and the zipper is defective, it won’t stay up. Also the stitching around one of the knee patching is coming apart. Also, lots of piling. For reference, I only ride for about an hour once a week and rotate my schooling breeches. Really disappointing how these are holding up given the price point.
    Date published: 2019-02-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pilling I bought two pairs during their Piper Sale and am in love with the fit, especially for us curvy gals. I have a small waist and wide hips and I sized down from my usual 30 to a 28. The length is perfect for me (I am 5'7"). I took off a star because they have pilled in the inner thigh area after wearing for the first time. I don't experience this with my high end breeches. The pipers are great for schooling which is what I intend to use them for.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fabric Puckers Badley I purchased 3 pair of these breeches over a 2 year period. Loved them at first, however 2 of the 3 pair are puckering along the back seam line, even though I follow laundering instructions. Very unflattering look! For this reason I will not purchase again.
