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? 

Imported.

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.

    Piper Original Mid-rise Breeches by SmartPak - Knee Patch is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 96.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and super Cute I love these breeches. Super comfortable, stretchy enough and fabulous navy blue. I traded a 26 for a 24 and they fit perfect. I really like the stretch around the ankle and just the overall cute look.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit Perfectly! I bought these a few weeks ago and they’re already my new favorite riding pants. They’re comfortable, stylish, and fit amazingly. I’m so glad I found them and I plan an buying another pair!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mid rise is awesome. True to size. The mid-rise Piper is my favorite breech. The fabric, fit, sock bottom, cool color choices...all make for a great addition to my riding wardrobe. I tried the regular Pipers with the low rise and they just didn’t fit as well. These were the perfect solution and I’m so pleased. Thank you SmartPak for making great breech options for all.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute and Affordable but need some improvement I took advantage of the buy 2 get one free sale recently, and got three different pairs of the piper line. I read they run small so I ordered a size up (26) I usually wear 24 in Romfhs. I found all three fit differently and were a bit big so exchanged for 24, which also fit inconsistently among styles. The front fly construction isn’t well done, the zipper gaps at the top even when not under stress. The two hook closure is better than the single hook, don’t remember which style had which. On the positive side, the colors are cute, the fabric is pretty stretchy and comfortable, and feels good to wear. Have only washed once so far so not sure how they will hold up. Overall good for schooling and around the barn!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and well made I bought two pair and will definitely buy more. So comfy and thick enough for cold weather.
    Date published: 2017-12-04
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nope, I'm going to stick with the low-rise I thought I'd give these a try because I'm a huge fan of the regular Piper low-rise breech but thought I'd like the mid-rise. Nope. I don't feel like they are nearly as flattering. The waistband is narrower and has a single hook closure instead of the double hook/wider waistband of the Piper low-rise. The zipper seems to pull and gap just under the waistband as well, making the breech less comfortable and less flattering, at least on me. I'm going to return them and have ordered this color (grey/turqouise), which I love, in the low-rise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy After having weird shipping of the the Original Knee Patch Pipers with one coming with 2 buttons and one coming with 1 button. I finally learned in one of the SmartPak magazines that the Original Knee Patch Pipers are suppose to have 2 buttons and the Mid Rise Knee Patch Pipers are supposed to have 1 button. I decided I like the Mid Rise Knee Patch Pipers. Getting on with the point, I love these breeches, they are so comfy. I do tend to find that I have to pull these up once in a while, but I think it is just because of my body type. I even wear the tan ones to shows since the piping gets hidden from the show coat. I would totally recommend these breeches to anyone.

    Date published: 2017-11-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great breeches These breeches are made with fabric that feels very durable. I like the snug fit at the bottom of the legs that allows them to fit comfortably into tall boots. The colorful trim is really fun.
    Date published: 2017-10-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great breeches! I absolutely love these breeches!! I now have 2 different colors, and hope to get more soon. One of them I got in the amethyst color, and get compliments on them every time I wear them. The only thing I would change, is that the seams on the lower leg get a little uncomfortable after wearing socks, and half chaps over them all day - nothing too bad though, and not stopping me from wearing them either.
    Date published: 2017-10-13
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really want to love them.. First - a caveat: underlying all of my comments is the FERVENT wish of many (including some top Hunter judges who hate seeing shirts sticking out from under hunt coats and shads), that SOMEBODY would buck the trend and bring some REGULAR RISE breeches back to market. Now - with that as context..... The Piper Mid Rise are pretty good among the mid rise options available in a reasonable price range. They are really cute, well made, functional and a really good price for everyday wear - schooling, grooming etc. Really LOVE the back pockets ! BUT....as with all low and mid-rise breeches, there's still that nagging sensation that you'd really, really like to stop and pull up your pants after each jump : ( . To that point, the Pipers feature stretchable belt loops which facilitate movement but the 2 at the back of the waist are super stretchy which puts them completely at odds with your belt's effort of trying to keep the breeches in place. Changing those out would make a difference I think...another 1/2" on the rise at the back would be even better (wishful thinking, I know). Second - as mentioned in some other reviews, the sizing may be a little inconsistent. The first pair I ordered were Navy 26R Mid-rise full seat. They fit quite well both on the ground and in the saddle (my comments on the rise issues above notwithstanding). So - pretty pleased with that, I ordered a second pair in gray, same size, but this time in knee patch. They seem to be a bit narrower and more snug in the thigh than the first pair and as a result, not as comfortable. Needless to say I was hoping for another win, but I'll likely return them and order another in full seat instead. Fingers crossed ! I would recommend these as one of the better options of those available to those of us who have to compromise and who still long for the neat, classic look, function and comfort of a regular rise.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice breeches for the price these are comfortable and a nice weight, substantial but not heavy. I wore them on hot day and was fine. a barn mate said " you are NOT going to show in those are you ?" [hunters], - I did and got a ribbon so THERE. but they are not true to size, so order a full size larger than you usually wear
    Date published: 2017-08-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality. Order one size up. It appears ONLY this material color is made small. I'm a 26R in all sizes but this one had to get a 28R and it fits perfect.
    Date published: 2017-08-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good purchase I bought these as breeches I could use to show in jumper classes, and they fit well and look good. They are a little darker than I expected, but still very nice.
    Date published: 2017-07-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these breeches! I bought these for a second pair of show breeches. I wanted to try the mid-rise. These fit great. I sized up from my other Pipers. The waist fits perfectly and is very flattering, not too low or high. Slightly baggy below the knee but I have skinny calves.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality at s good price! I loved the fabric and look of these breeches! Well made and seemed durable for my everyday riding. I did, however, return them to exchange for one size bigger. Can't wait for them to arrive!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! Bought the breeches in tan to show the hunters in. I was a little concerned that the black logo might be an issue, but it didn't seem to be and now I've switched to jumpers, but I would ask your trainer if you are concerned about it. I believe my jacket covered it mostly. They're super comfy and not too thick (that's always an issue in humid SC). I like the mid rise fit as well and they're long enough which is awesome (I'm 5'11)! They've stood up schooling in and washing several times. Will definitely be purchasing more Piper breeches in the future!
    Date published: 2017-07-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Breeches I bought these because of the great color choices. Fabric is nice, although a bit heavy. Plenty of pockets which is a big plus. They wash up really nice! If you happen to be in between sizes, order up a size. My only complaint is the waist band rolling down but that is remedied with a belt.
    Date published: 2017-07-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Returned, but could be great for others Really high quality breech, especially love the rear pockets! I was looking for a more traditional, higher rise, so I sent back. But I will buy as soon as they release a version that comes to my waist!
    Date published: 2017-07-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I love that these ft a little more like pants and less like leggings. They are so comfortable. I love that the waist isn't too low and the back pockets are a must have for me! I have them in two colors and want more!!
    Date published: 2017-07-03
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sizing inconsistent I have three pairs of Smartpak Pipers in Mid Rise. The first two fit perfectly, so I ordered a tan pair for an upcoming show. They are so much smaller they BARELY zip up and gap really badly at the top. It made for a really uncomfortable weekend of horse showing. I wish I had tried them on BEFORE I got to the show, but I assumed the same size in the same brand/style I already owned two other pairs in would fit the same. Really frustrating.
    Date published: 2017-06-14
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pants, fit a tad small! Great pants as always, but fit a tad small. Should have sized up from standard rise Pipers.
    Date published: 2017-06-07
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I love the Piper breeches, but I was a little dismayed by these. I think they are good quality and look so nice, but I ordered a 30R in them and couldn't even get them done up. Other piper breeches I have (full-seat) I have ordered in 30R and I have another pair of piper knee patch breeches in 28R and they both fit fine. But the 30R I could hardly get on. I think they may run a little smaller

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good looking breeches but... I like the look of and the price for these breeches, but the seams are coming apart, so I give them a C for durability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I love the fit of these! I know some people feel the rise isn't high enough, but they're perfect for me. (5'10", size 14) I ordered 34L. I'll definitely be buying more pairs, especially if they come out in black with white trim. (;
