Why We Love This

Piper breeches are too fun to have just one! This style features a higher rise than the original Pipers, so if you’re looking for a fun schooling breech with a little more coverage, these are the breeches for you. They also have figure-flattering design elements like Euro seat styling and a contoured waistband that eliminates gapping as well as 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 2 out of 5 by from Too small I have a pair of piper 36r that are too big so I ordered this pair in 34 r....they are several inches too small more like a 32

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fairly comfortable I love the 4 pockets in these breeches. Don't like how loose the lower leg is and not thrilled with the mid rise but it is better than the low rise. Would prefer full rise as I like the fit around my natural waist.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased 3 pairs (all different colors) for my daughter. She loves the fit, feel, look, and function of all of them!!

      Rated 2 out of 5 by from RUNS REALLY SMALL These run way small. I normally wear a 30 or 32 but I ordered a 34 because these were on clearance and had limited sizes and 34 is usually fine with a belt. These were so small I was like 3 inches from being able to even close them. I wear a US 32 in Pikeur which notoriously run small so I was sure a 34 in these would fit but not even close! Its a shame because they're fashionable and seem to be nice quality for the money. I seem to not be the only one with this problem so I hope they fix their sizing.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for curvy women :( SUPER bummed as the Mid Rise is supposed to be SmartPak's "high rise" option vs. the regular Piper breeches with are more low rise. If Mid-rise is their high rise option, I don't even want to know how low the regular breeches go, sheesh! I'm 5'7, athletic build, and I have a booty. Fit my legs well, great quality pant, awesome colors, however it barely makes it past my butt crack lol. No way I can sit without flashing everyone! I was warned by my other barnmates (EVERYONE wears Piper pants!) that you should always get the Mid Rise b/c if they ride in the regular, the pants are too low on your butt when you sit in the saddle. And these are skinny people with no curves. SmartPak can you put just a little more fabric in the buttocks area for women who aren't sticks? Please please please?!

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way too Small Bought 3 pairs of breeches all the same size and these are like 4 inches away from the snap. Very disappointed. Thought the Midrise was a better fit being higher up. Now will have to deal with returning them. Love color though.
      Date published: 2018-12-29
      Rated 2 out of 5 by from Huge disappointment :( I bought these on sale and I love the material and the colors. But they are NOT mid rise, not even close. I bought the knit Pipers in the same size and had little issue with the fit (still not truly mid rise but not far off). I would buy these in multiple colors if the fit was fixed

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vibrant! Love the color combo! Such a vibrant blue!! One thing i wish smartpak would do with their breeches to make them stable throughout riding and working is to make the back belt loop near the tail bone one thick broad loop instead of two little strings, it’d help hold the pants up better!! Still all around beautiful pant!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Am I a Fashion Hound or a Comfort Seeking Missile? Just got my second pair of Piper breeches & had to add my praises to the reviews. All things being equal, we girls are all about color, right? So when I saw all the fun, beautiful colors that Pipers come in, I wistfully told myself they must be fitted to younger bodies. When I saw some irresistible sale prices, coupled with Smartpak’s fuss free return policy, I took a chance & ordered a couple pairs. Haha! I’m a fan! They’re even more comfortable than I had imagined & the colors fit right in the middle of fashion & function. The leg bottoms are designed better than anything else I’ve worn & the pockets are surprisingly roomy. The fit is about what other reviewers said, a bit on the snug side, so I sized up to the next measurement and found the breeches to be flattering & smooth fitting. If my cowboy husband could wear my Pipers, he just might never ride in jeans again!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing schooling breech for the price! I bought these a few weeks ago and I'm glad I did! They are so comfy and work so well. I got many compliments on them. The only thing is I ordered a size up because the reviews said they ran small but the breeches ended up being slightly too big. I will definitely be ordering another pair.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've the way they fit great quality for the price. Very comfortable
      Date published: 2018-09-12
      Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice material, great price, lower rise I wanted to love these, the material was very stretchy and comfortable, and the price on sale was a super deal. However, I found these more of a low rise than a mid rise. I prefer a higher rise and a straight cut, like my Pikeurs. This would go nicely for somebody who likes a curvy cut lower rise. I would add that they run a bit small. Size up one size from what you wear in Pikeur, HKM or Horze.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute! I ordered the Lapis Blue/Orange Spice and I love the color! perfect for fall. I personally always order a size up in breeches and these fit fine. The orange is a little darker then I expected but i'm not disappointed by any means.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price! These breeches are a great go-to purchase for me. The quality is consistantly good and the fit is pretty good. If I have a complaint it's that they tend to pull down all the time so a belt is a must-wear.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and wearable These were purchased for trailing and will be best in the fall or cooker days

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from They’re okay Just don’t fit me right. Too big in the legs, so I can’t wear my tall boots with them. The next size down was too small, but both gapped pretty good in the back. Doesn’t matter much since it’s only for schooling and if I wear a belt it’s fine. I absolutely love the colors and the material though. I know some people love Pipers, my whole barn wears them on a daily basis but they just weren’t for me.
      Date published: 2018-07-21
      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable I bought these once I started riding again. Love them. Very stretchy and comfy. Flattering as well. Highly recommend.
      Date published: 2018-07-13
      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart looking The sizing review was spot on, they do run just a little small in the waist and hips, but it wasn't a problem for me. Mid rise was good, but I really like the higher rise, I feel like I have to keep pulling them up, I'm long wasited so that may be why. I really do like them and would buy again.
      Date published: 2018-07-03
      Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sizing off I got these with a different Piper breech. I noticed a small rip in the belt loop area but I wasn't overly concerned with it. I tried them on and they were definitely much smaller than the other pair I had received but supposedly the same size. Free returns came in handy as I returned them.
      Date published: 2018-06-12
      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit! I am a tall & thin, so I normally have trouble finding quality pants that fit. These were perfect.
      Date published: 2018-04-17
      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants for the price I love the styling and once I figured out the sizing I now order one every 6 months or so - not because they don't last more because I want more colors.
      Date published: 2018-04-10
      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun color! Great price and they are good schooling breeches, they changed the waistline slightly from the older version and I like this better!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from So flattering ! Love the fit and look if these. Super comfortable and eye catching.
      Date published: 2018-03-26
      Rated 5 out of 5 by from New fit I tried pipers years ago and they fit horribly. Smartpak must have changed the fit because I bought a pair of these on sale and I love them! They are super comfy and feel like they will last. I'm a 28 but usually breeches are a little short on me so I was super happy to see that they had longs.
      Date published: 2018-03-25
      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute color but a little low cut Breeches are midrise but I think they are a bit low cut. The material collects hair a lot! Loved the discount price
      Date published: 2018-03-16
      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit very well These were on sale and I bought 2 pair of different colors. I have just begun to buy the SmartPak brand breeches and I am glad I did. I am short and older and these fit me very well and I will purchase them again. By the way I ride western and these are replacing jeans. Much more comfortable.
