Why We Love This

Piper breeches are too fun to not wear all summer long! These Piper breeches were designed to help you beat the heat and look great doing it with a lightweight fabric and a sporty silhouette. 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 a 2” wide, contoured waistband that eliminates unsightly gapping. They also have knee patches made out of silicone grip to help give you the stick you want without any additional heavy fabric, giving you a more breathable, lighter weight grip than traditional materials offer.

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 adds 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 lightweight, 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. You’ll have plenty of pockets to store essentials with both traditional pockets and zippered thigh pockets. 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 that’s perfect to wear when the temperatures start to climb. The only question is what color (or colors!) will you pick?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable! I really like these breeches. After reading the other reviews I was concerned about fit... I did order 1 size up (however, it may be closer to 2 sizes- I run between a 24 and 26 depending on the brand); I ordered a 28 and the fit is great! They are a thin comfortable material and the fit is quite flattering. For the price, these will be my new schooling breeches of choice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the pockets Theses were on sale and they had pockets! So I bought them and the fit pretty well to. I am short so they are a tad long but nothing I don't deal with regularly. I have always liked Pipers for this reason.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Run Small I bought these for my daughter who needs summer breeches. They look great,however they run very small. I purchased a size up and even with that she just got them on and would not be able to ride in them. Disappointed because she really wanted to like them. These breechers are very different from other Piper's Breechers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daughter's Go-To Breeches It's hot in Los Angeles especially riding! Bought my daughter a couple of these and they are her preferred breeches during riding. She says they are comfortable and not heavy at all to wear in the heat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely design of pouch and zip pockets The fabric is cool, breathable, and very pretty colors, with plenty of stretch. I am built with a long-rise and short torso, so they are a bit too short in the rise for best, ideal comfort for my lumbar vertebrae. They are described as "mid-rise" and I believe people with more "normal" conformation than me will find them super comfortable

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not impressed Let me start by saying I love the Piper Silicone breeches - I really really wanted to love these but they are so much smaller and different than the classics or knit silicone pairs that I really do not like them. I got the same size I always get and couldn't even get them half way up my legs -_- Talk about annoying. They look nicely constructed overall but I am not willing to order 2 sizes up to try and get them to fit. I will stick to the other pairs I know fit a lot better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs Small I bought these for my Daughter as a cooler breech during the summer. Had to exchange for the next size up and they were still on the small side compared to the sizing of the original Piper breeches. Belt loops are also smaller. Zipper pockets are awkwardly placed and not very useful since the pant is so snug. Good Idea but fit needs improvement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great breech for summer riding! I bought these breeches as a cool breech to wear in hot weather that had the essentials - pockets! The thing I miss most during summer riding is that I can't carry my phone when I ride due to never having a comfortable pocket to put it in. These breeches fit the bill. They're nice and lightweight, breathable, and my phone fits in the zippered pocket easily. I can wear them all day at the barn on a humid 90 degree day without feeling like I'm going to pass out from heatstroke. The colors are also super cute - I started with the grey but am definitely partial to the Dusty Teal color! Washing them is easy, I toss them in the washer inside out and hang dry. They don't pick up dirt as easily as other fabrics either. I did find that these ran a little small. I ended up sizing up to get the perfect fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still love them... I did want to update my first review just to say that I still love them but they are snug (I wish I would’ve known this prior to my first order ) I just ordered another pair in a larger size… I’m normally a 24R and had to get a 26R. I personally think they’re very flattering and have held up but just run small.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My only SmartPak disappointment I loved the original Pipers, and have about 12 pairs of those. So, after a recent move to Florida I thought I'd give these lighter weight ones a try. I wanted to love them, but honestly they were the only SmartPak-brand item I've ever purchased that I've been disappointed in. The material is lighter than the original Pipers, but everything else about them fell short. I ride a lot of green horses at work, and the silicone grip was more or less useless and left me feeling insecure in the saddle. The thread also started to come apart after only an hour in the barn, and after washing them on a delicate cycle in cold water and laying flat to dry they don't look like they'll be nearly as durable through wears and washes as my other breeches. The only detail I really like about them are the four pockets that are easy to access from the front, which might be nice for storing treats on long trail rides or for doing ground work. But overall I don't recommend them, and would not purchase them again in the future.
