Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHOA NELLY! I had purchased the former version of the outer breeches and they told a return to get right but these are OUTSTANDING! Fit well, fabric is perfect soft shell with plenty of stretch and the full seat is like a normal full seat. Couldn’t be more pleased for the fantastic price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit so great and warm! These came so fast and really excellent, the price was great and they are great to ride in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great winter breeches I bought these a few weeks ago and love the fabric! It is slick so hay & dirt don't stick and they are very warm. I am very long from the hip to the knee so unless I buy German made breeches they are always a little short there. These are a little short but the design and fabric make up for it, especially for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite winter breeches The material is warm enough for 20 degree days in an unheated barn and riding outside. Also love how the material doesn’t collect hay or hair. Sized down one size based on reviews. Bought a second pair two sizes smaller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice winter breeches I bought a pair of Piper winter softshell breeches several years ago and was never happy with the fit or the material. When I saw them on the website this year, the fit appeared different. So I ordered a pair (sizing up from my normal breech size based on the sizing chart and my measurements) and am very impressed. Apparently these are made from a different material with more stretch and they seem to be cut in a better fit for my curves. I bought the regular length but seem to have trouble with them slipping down. When they went on clearance, I bought another pair at my regular breech size but the Long length and am much more satisfied with the fit. Both pair will serve me well for winter riding above 30 degrees and light or no breeze. Colder than that and I may have to layer with lightweight long underwear or tights. Love the fact that the material repels hay, bedding, horse hair! The seat is not very sticky so I either have to focus on improving the security of my position or make sure my saddle isn't slippery on those "whoopee" days!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Cozy! A lot of the reviews said that these breeches were baggy in butt, they are but not too bad. I have small hips and butt and they are still comfortable (nice to have a little room for a thin base layer!). I ordered a size down per recommendations, right thing to do! I ride in the mountains at 0-20 F and they are nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So warm and wind proof!! I have worn these in chilly (45F) as well as very windy conditions and they are great! Super soft fleece inside and truly block wind. The fit is good, waist is a little lower than ideal for me but fine with shirt tucked in and longer vest/jacket/both.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad fit I ordered a 28 L...way too big I reordered a 26 long . sort of fit if i didn't move but if I lifted my leg up ( and who doesn't do that to get on a horse?) the waist pulled down off my butt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handsome color Ordered a pair: 36 Long ; had to return for a 34 Reg. They are a great fit & comfortably warm this winter. I'm a 6'1" 37" waist 75 year old Marine The zipper is backwards but I'll manage

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes winter riding possible These breeches make winter riding possible for me. They keep the wind out and the warm in. Without them, i would not brave any barn activites below 40 degrees. THEY RUN A FULL SIZE LARGE!! Order a size down. I wear a 32r in these but a 34r in regular pipers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toasty and well made These fit well and provide protection against our winter winds. I am 5’9” and 150 lbs and the 30L works great for me. I love the olive color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit I live in Minnesota, and these are perfect! The fleece stops the wind from going right through you, and I don't get cold even when I go out to the paddock to grab my horse in 20 degrees. They are warm but still thin—not bulky at all. I hate feeling like there's fabric between me and my horse, but I feel like I'm still wearing summer breeches in these. I am 5'7" and bought the Long length, which fits great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy, functional I was looking for a decent, not-too-expensive pair of full seat winter breeches. When the Piper Winter Softshells went on sale, I figured I'd try them. They aren't the best fit on me, but they get the job done, so I kept them and am perfectly content that I did. I have size 24R, and they are a bit baggy at the butt and knees, and stay in place better if I wear a belt. I also tried 22R, but couldn't even get them buttoned. (For reference, 24R Hadleys fit me very well.) This isn't really the breeches' fault, though, different styles just fit people differently. The outer material is soft and doesn't attract hay/hair/shavings. The pockets are roomy. They are cozier than regular breeches, but not as warm as some other winter options (such as the Kerrits Fleece Lite tights).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really warm! Super comfortable and warm. Does run a tad large though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Piper Winter Breeches Upgrade I was hesitant to buy these breeches. The first gen piper winter breeches were terrible, in my opinion. These are comfortable, warm, and provide a great grip to the saddle. I've found that the durability of regular pipers has declined, but hoping these last for more than a season!
Date published: 2021-01-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm without being bulky These are fantastic! They are warm without being too bulky, still fit in my tall boots.
Date published: 2021-01-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft, stretchy, fleece lining just right! Have worn these breeches for a couple weeks now and they are doing a great job keeping my legs warm while still providing plenty of stretch. My hips had been aching during cold morning workouts but no longer! I am 5’9”, 150 lbs and ordered the 32L which fit well width wise but are still a trifle short. That, combined with the ribbing on the ankles being a bit loose, tends to make the breeches ride up a bit on my lower legs. However, this is not a major issue when wearing half chaps as they cover and keep everything in place. Would have given the breeches five stars but for being a bit short and loose around the ankles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic winter breeches that look great I always have a hard time finding winter breeches because I don't feel like many nice breech companies make them. I was psyched to see these and just got a pair, and have worn them to ride 4 horses the last 2 days. I do feel a little cold through them eventually, but have none of that awful chill that doesn't go away (it's been high 20's both days). They're cozy, fit well, and have a nice full seat that feels like a regular weight breech, not bulky or slippery at all. The back zip pockets are a great touch and lie smooth, and the material blocks the wind really well. They do run a touch large, I got the same size as my regular Pipers and probably could have gone down a size, but I'm fine with them being a little looser as it feels like that might be better for the soft shell material than stretching a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best winter breeches I just bought my second pair of these and I love them. So far I have found them to be the best winter breeches. I normally wear a 22R and ordered the same in these. They are a little snug in the waist. They aren’t as stretchy as the normal pipers so if you are between sizes I would recommend ordering a size up.
Date published: 2021-01-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy I’ve been wearing mine for a week now. They are slightly roomier than the standard pipers of the same size, which is great for layering over fleece leggings for even more warmth. They have just the right amount of stretch to be comfortable and are very soft on the inside. Love them.
Date published: 2021-01-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Short enough! I’m a new rider and needed breeches to wear in cold weather. I’m also 5’2” on a good day. I’ve tried other brands - all too long. These fit! I’m giving a 4 star rating because they not as heavy weight as I expected. I wonder how long the seat will last. But they fill the bill for indoor riding and the price point is great, especially for a newbie. I’ve already recommended them to an equal petite person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Current Favorite Winter Breech I just really like everything about these breeches. The softshell outer protects from cold winds and hay doesn't stick to it. I have a couple pair from last year and they are wearing very well. The full seat is grippy but not so aggressive to harm the leather of my saddle like the silicone dots can. I wish Smartpak would add a show color because the Area 2 eventers start out in the spring during some wintery weather! I would think the foxhunters would love a beige breech too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE THESE! I am so happy I bought these (and ended up getting many other colours!) Keeps my legs warm in the winter months but are amazingly comfy! A little baggy in the butt (which rarely happens for me), I could have probably went a size down! Stretchy and great feeling material (even my coach commented during my lesson!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Follow the size guide and you’ll be fine! I bought these breeches a few weeks ago in navy and black and I love them! I read the reviews and in order to ensure I got the fit right, I simply followed the size guide and measurements. When I did that, I in fact did wear a 26R vs a 28R that I normally wear for summer Piper breeches. They did seem slightly short for me even at 5’5”. But I didn’t care because I have my talk winter boots on. The fabric is fantastic!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fit was Way Off I was so excited about these breeches but the fit was way off. The inseam was not correct and they were super tight fitting (I ordered based off of everyone else's recommendations). The soft shell felt nice but I ended keeping another pair of winter breeches instead.
Date published: 2020-12-17
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Thick material, high waist, run large I haven't been a fan of Piper breeches before (although I love Hadleys!). It looked like the design had been refined a bit, so I wanted to give these a try. While the material was nice and thick for winter, they ran large and weren't very flattering due to the very high waist. I ended up returning and didn't try to ride in them.
