Why We Love This

The Piper Tight by SmartPak is the perfect blend of riding functionality and athletic wear. You’ll love that the material gives you four-way stretch and has a comfort waistband. They also have silicone grip knee patches that help you sit tight in the tack without sacrificing stretch or mobility. Plus, they’re lightweight and moisture wicking to keep you cool, dry, and comfortable. They even have a handy side pocket to stash your phone, wallet, keys, or treats!

Like all Piper breeches, they come in a variety of fun colors to show off your style and to mix and match with the rest of the Piper collection. Last but not least, they’re machine washable to make them as easy to care for as they are to wear. Once you try them on, these will definitely become your go-to riding tight whether you’re at the barn, at the gym, hiking the trails, or anywhere else you want to go. The sky really is the limit in these ultra-comfy tights. The only question is where will they take you?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits like a second skin Incredibly flattering, form-fitting, and true to size. They are perfect for training in hot, humid weather. Very resilient and easy to clean. They dry easily in between rides and keep you cool and feeling clean throughout the day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Riding Tights! These are the best riding pants I’ve owned. They’re comfortable and actually fit my legs. The phone pocket is an awesome feature. I thought the silicone stickies might bother me but I don’t even notice them. I highly recommend these, especially if you have trouble finding riding clothes that fit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and flattering tights The material is soft and comfortable and the pattern is flattering. They seem to stay in place without twisting. The knee grips are very sticky and with the first ride it did leave little marks on my saddle. I was able to clean them off with leather conditioner.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and flattering These are comfortable and flattering and I love the pocket for the phone, although my hand and whip brush against my phone when I ride sometimes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE these Piper Tights! I LOVE these Piper Tights. The fit and style is great. They are super comfortable in the saddle and the grip is still holding strong after several washes. Most of all, I am REALLY HAPPY with the cell phone pocket size and placement. The pocket fits my cell phone perfectly and I can access the pocket easily without too much fuss while riding. Great job SmartPak for making an excellent, functional riding tight!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy, practical and flattering! I was really hesitant to wear tights because I'm middle aged and on the curvier side - however I am really glad I gave these a try! I have them now in both the navy and black and I'm back for another pair. I was looking for a lightweight pair of tights to wear in the humid, hot weather we have been having, and these are perfect for that type of weather. Also, while I'm 5'6, all my height is in my torso, leaving me struggling to find pants that will fit my curvy torso and rear, but aren't too long in the inseam. Again, these check both of those items. Bonus was that they were thin enough to be cool, but not so thin that they show the jiggle and bumps you don't want showing through. I love the sticky silicone, and the placement works perfectly for me as a novice jumper. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars, is that the waistband is just a bit constricting, but I'd rather have that then it slipping down. I've worn them several times already, and they wash really well too. Wish there were more colors!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy, cool & flattering! I love my regular Pipers but they were just so hot this summer. I was not looking for tights but figured I'd try these. They are extremely comfortable and thin (which is what I was looking for). I like the grippy knees. I hadn't been bringing my phone with me when going on the trails (not a great idea carrying it in my bra) and this slim pocket holds my Samsung just great. I am 5' and 110" and the xs fits me great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable! I have worn these tights ( got 2 pair) several times and love them. The phone pocket is wonderfully placed and convenient for phone and chapstick. Quality is great, fit is awesome! Even in hot sun, they didn't feel hot!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect These tights are of high quality and fit very nicely. They are very comfortable. I bought these tights for the pocket. The pocket fits my phone perfectly and keeps it secure. My only negative comment would be that the pocket is on the front of the leg. I have to remove my phone to dismount off my horse or the phone will get crushed. These tights would be absolutely perfect if the pocket was on the side of the leg and not the front.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have every color! This tight is the most comfortable summer riding tight(trust me.. I live in sunny South Florida)! My first pair that I have had for over a year is still holding on strong! The material is not too thick and not too thin!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite These are so comfortable and cool on a hot day. They are my new favorite SmartPak Piper. I love the pocket for my phone. It's safe and out of the way when I ride.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable! Only worn them a few times but very happy so far. Got them for trail riding so I love the pocket for my phone. (I ride in an endurance type saddle so breeches work best). They are stretchy but not too stretchy and stay up nicely. When bending over they do become a tiny bit see through but not much.
    Date published: 2020-06-19
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very very thin tights These tights are just that- more like a pair of tights you'd wear under a skirt. They are super thin material. They look beautiful from afar and phone pocket is appreciated. These DO fit my extra long legs and don't bag at my crotch like many others. I'm going to try riding in these anyways, because I live in the inferno called Phoenix and I am desperate.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tore after wearing once I had really high expectations for these tights as so many people recommended them to me, unfortunately they ripped after wearing and riding only once and I was really disappointed. I wanted to like them but after ripping I was upset. I don’t know if this was an issue with the pair I ordered or in general but I was disappointed.
    Date published: 2020-06-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yep, I like 'em !! I bought these tights about 10 days ago and have ridden in them twice. I LOVE them. Very comfortable and functional. They were SO comfortable that I thought surely they transformed me from a short, fat, late-middle aged woman to a svelte, tall, 30 yr know, the kind who has confidence and poise. Sadly, they didn't, but they were very comfortable and they have a phone pocket, so I'm happy with them. If I had to change one thing I'd put the phone pocket on the right side, but that's a tiny change. And the price is reasonable. Thanks!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wanted to love these I have pretty much every version of Piper and Hadley tights so far - these were the only pair I did not like. I'll echo some reviewers and say the rise is not what I would call "mid" - its more "low" and the thick waistband makes that even worse. All of my other Piper and Hadley tights are much better in the waist, so I'll stick with those. I will say though that phone pockets are amazing so I hope Smartpak upgrades all of their tights to include the pocket (looking at you, Piper Ombre Tights). I liked the material of these, and wish the waist was a better fit. I'm a 10-12 in most bottoms and always buy my Piper tights in large - they are a little big in some areas as I have a small waist and bigger butt/thighs, so I do end up hiking them up every now and again, especially if I have a phone in my pocket.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable Tights I purchased the black knee patch tights and really like them! They are comfortable for long rides and have not made me hot in the Texas sun. They have washed well and haven't seemed to stretch out too much. I think having belt loops on them would make them even better!
    Date published: 2020-06-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super comfy but slippery These lightweight, breathable tights are perfect for summer. I like the grippy silicone at the knees, but the tights are still quite slippery. The first time I wore these, I slid right over and off the other side of my saddle when a friend gave me a leg up. Additionally, they are quite generously sized through the legs. Combined with the slipperiness, the bagginess led to some twisting and saddle sores. I ordered a full seat version in a smaller size and that mostly seemed to alleviate these problems. Overall, I really like that these tights have a handy pocket and think they’ll be great for leisurely trail rides on hot days.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from so comfy and great fit! I bought one pair of these riding tights and loved them so much I bought 2 more.I did initially buy a Medium and for the next two I sized down to Small. I like a tight fit when I ride. I am 5'11 and these are nice and long they almost reached my ankle which surprised me.
    Date published: 2020-06-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous for All Body Types I'm a plus sized rider and my daughter is rail thin and they fit us both great (different sizes obviously). Love the pocket too. Wish they came in long though

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price for a 3 season tight with phone pocket I have one pair of Kerrits Ice full seat tights with a pocket and wanted a second option. I initially bought the full seat and it was so sticky in the seat that I actually chaffed. I exchanged for the knee patch and I am happy with these. Contrary to other reviewers I do not find the material too thin, in fact it is not as thin and slippery as the Kerrits. I am under 5'1" so all breeches are long on me. These fold nicely in the lower leg under my half chaps. I would like a small second pocket on the other thigh for some incidentals like keys or horse treats.
    Date published: 2020-05-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price. These are great tights for the price. The pocket is what makes these special. Also, the bottoms don’t have the uncomfortable elastic. That gives them the comfort of yoga pants. Overall these are fantastic for the price. I do miss the knee patch but they still get a 5 star rating from me.
    Date published: 2020-05-26
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice, but VERY thin I bought the Piper tights, after loving my Hadley tights. They are the blue heather color and very pretty. However like others have said, they are VERY thin to the point they are almost uncomfortable to wear. Everything is on display if ya know what I mean! They're not awful, but I'd rather spend a little more for the Hadleys.
    Date published: 2020-05-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great light weight summer tights I have these tights in full seat and knee patch, and I love them. The material is thin, which makes them great for deep summer riding – even though I am notoriously hard on all of my equipment they have held up well. The silicone grips were really sticky when I first got them, but after a few rides and a good wash that has lessened – now the tights offer some grip without feeling like I am glued into the saddle.
    Date published: 2020-05-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long legs! Great Material & cut I’m 5’10 130lbs 30yrs old & bought these in a Small. They fit great! Maybe a hair loose around the thighs but they’re stretchy, so who cares? That is completely forgotten about when I factor in the length on the legs. These are a must for long legged gals! I have a 34” inseam & love these things! They aren’t even marked long, which I find funny. I’ve had them for two years now & they’re holding up great! The silicone is still in tact, no holes in them. I ride about 4x per week in the summer. The material of these is a has a cool sensation. So I tend to wear them in the summer or on warmer Spring/Fall days. They are a bit thicker than my Kerrits Ice Fill Tights but the rise & fit is about the same. I bought mine in Emerald/Black Heather and love the color. It’s still just as vibrant as ever, like a dark heather turquoise. For the price, you really can’t beat them.
