Why We Love This

What do you get when you combine soft, cozy fleece with revolutionary SmartCore™ technology? You get your new favorite winter layering piece – the Piper SmartCore™ Fleece ¼ Zip Top! This midweight top is made with SmartCore™ fabric, which has UPF 50 sun protection, outstanding moisture-wicking properties and temperature-regulating technology without the need for any added chemicals. What does all of that mean for you? That you’ll be warm, dry, and protected and that you’ll have peace of mind that you’re not exposing yourself to added chemicals. Plus, since the UPF 50 protection, moisture-wicking, and thermoregulatory power of the fabric is built right in, it won’t come out in the wash. Additionally, the super soft fleece adds an extra cozy factor while the ¼ zip gives you the benefit of extra ventilation when you need it (and makes it easy to take off – even with a helmet on). Of course, it also has plenty of stretch so that it moves with you whether you’re reaching for a jump, a bale of hay, your yoga mat, or your hiking boots. The looser cut makes it perfect for layering and the princess seaming offers a flattering finish. Last but not least, it’s available in a bevy of beautiful colors to add some fun to your favorite riding outfit and that coordinate perfectly with Piper breeches for a put-together schooling look.

  • Perfect midweight piece for layering
  • Revolutionary SmartCore™ fabric keeps you warm, dry, and protected without any added chemicals
  • UPF 50 - the highest available sun protection
  • Thermoregulatory fabric keeps your body temperature just right - not too hot, not too cold
  • Enhanced moisture wicking keeps you feeling dry and comfortable
  • Because they're built into the fabric, these properties won't wash out
  • Four-way stretch moves with you wherever you go
  • 1/4 zip for extra ventilation
  • Flattering princess seams
  • Coordinates with Piper breeches

Sizing Chart for Piper SmartCore™ Fleece ¼ Zip Top
Piper SmartCore™ Fleece ¼ Zip Top is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Boxy Fit This fleece is medium weight without much stretch. It runs about a half size large with a wide torso...The "black" is really dark grey with stripey pattern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this too! Perfect fit, the arms aren’t incredibly long like I run in to with every other brand it seems. Nice weight fabric. Cozy interior.
Date published: 2021-11-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight warmth My fleece top arrived just as the temperature dropped into the 30’s . I wore it to ride & to work in the unheated barn & was perfectly comfortable.
Date published: 2021-11-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and Cozy A good layering sweatshirt. The sleeves are a bit short if you are built with long legs and arms, but was forgivable for how comfy it was; I opted to keep it and live with sleeves a bit short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great top This sweater is really nice. Fit Tru to size for me. I just wish there were pockets. It's kind of awkward with out pockets. Very soft and comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy for Cool Temps I own 2 older versions of this fleece shirt in yellow and dusty mauve. I bought this one in the Dark Olive, as I am shifting to wearing more earth tones. The shirt is a great weight for cooler weather riding or layering. The fit is true to size and the quality is on par with my older versions. There is something positive to be said for product quality that did not diminish over time. That said, the dark olive is less green than pictured and much more grey. So, I will be returning it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Fleece This is a nice Fleece 1/4 Zip. It's cozy, but not too heavy and I like the length of the zipper (can take off a helmet without taking off your top). The general fit and length are great. I like a loose fitting style. The only negative is that the sleeves are about 3.5 inches too long for me. I thought about exchanging/returning it, but do like it overall and if I size down I don't think the rest will fit anymore. Maybe include sleeve length in specs whenever possible?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color and comfy This is a nice layer. It is comfortable and the length of the zipper is nice if you want to take it off over a helmet. If I had been shopping in a store I would have tried a size down. It is a big roomy in the back but I opted not to hassle with exchange. I get lots of positive comments on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality Bought as gift fir my sister and she’s hard to please, but she loves it! Great quality
Date published: 2020-11-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this top Fit is great, trim but not restrictive. Easily fits under a safety vest without bulk, but warmer than the coolmax type tops. Exterior is smooth but not slick. Interior is brushed fleece. Color is a bit darker than pictured (sugarplum). I'd buy one in every color if they weren't sold out in my size!
Date published: 2020-11-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For winter! Great top for cooler weather. Fabric is very comfortable and washes great. Fits true to size. Ordered a second one in a different color.
Date published: 2020-11-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from super warm I bought one a few weeks ago. So warm and comfy that I bought 2 more. They do run a little on the small side!
Date published: 2020-11-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty color Ordered the medium in the sugar plum shade. I thought it would be a brighter pinkish shade based on a few reviews. I really like the color and the fit is spot on. Like the longer zip which will make it easier to get on and off. This is a winner, may have to order a few more.
Date published: 2020-11-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs a little snug This is a great top for colder weather. The quarter zip makes it easy to get on & off. It fits well but runs about one half size small. If you do not like a snug fit, order up a size. Otherwise it is a great top. Too soon to rate on durability, so far no pilling of friction spots. A little pricey, but not bad if you can get some discounts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Fleece I really like this fleece. Comfortable. The fit was good - not too big or too tight. And most importantly the sleeves are long enough!! The color is pretty. Glad I made this purchase.
Date published: 2020-11-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Matches well I bought the Hadley down coat in Sugar Plum and bought this to wear under it. The colors look great together
Date published: 2020-09-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really wanted to love this Overall, it's a nice quarterzip. The fit is a little different than the other Piper products so just be aware - I normally wear a small in Piper sunshirts and I wanted this a little bigger so I ordered a medium. It is constricting around the chest area and pretty snug. I would say this runs small. It really is hair resistant (tested against a shedding german shepherd) and it is very soft on the inside. Just wish the fit was a little better and there were pockets!
Date published: 2020-09-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sugar plum WAY lighter then the picture Just received this in sugar plum and was really disappointed in the color. So much so that I thought I either ordered the wrong color or they sent the wrong one. Nope. Be aware, the actual plum color is MUCH lighter in person. I was hoping for that rich purple, but it's more of dark lilac. Sending back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Warm I happen to really like this shirt, but only gave it 4 starts as I felt it was missing a few small details that would have made it absolutely amazing. The fit is loose, but not messy looking, and layers perfectly over my base layer shirt. However, whenever I wear it, I keep looking for a pocket to put my key fob in, and I always wish there were thumb holes. Other than those small details - this is a great addition to my layering. Keeps me nice and toasty even in frigid, blustery conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it i love this fleece top, not bulky light yet warm and washes great. i purchased one of each color

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Comfy Love the top, runs large though. I had to return the first top and go with a smaller size. Ordered the pink during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I very much appreciate the 25% donation made by Smartpak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable fleece shirt I've been wearing this fleece shirt with temps in the 20s to 30s this week and love it! It is made of a nice weight fleece with plenty of stretch so that I can easily move in the barn or in the saddle. Fits nicely under a vest or coat. Love the steel blue and that it sheds hay, horse hair, etc. I'm looking forward to more variety in colors in the future.
Date published: 2019-11-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Perfect for fall and winter. Very comfortable and a nice fit.
Date published: 2019-11-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy! i wore this riding yesterday and i have to say, it was warmer than i was expecting. i wouldnt recomend riding in this when its super cold but for fall/early winter time this is perfect! when it came it smelled a little bit like dog food, which was a little strange, but was completly fine after a quick wash. I would recomend this to anyone who wants a warm and stylish 1/4 zip for not only riding but for every day use as well.
Date published: 2019-11-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from More like a nice sweatshirt I was expecting polartec, somehow.... guess I didn’t read carefully. It’s a sweatshirt with nice lines, cozy fabric. But not my definition of “fleece”.
Date published: 2019-11-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice winter weight riding top I bought the medium in the golden shade and love it. I am 5'6" and 143 lbs and this is a perfect fit. It is not really fitted nor is it loose. The color is exactly the same as a manilla envelope, lol. I think it is well made but it's very simple and not particularly "styled" or detailed, and so I feel it is very over priced to be honest. I probably will see if it goes on sale to buy more because for this price point I would expect more in the way of details as to cut or design. Other than that it is very nice.
