    Piper Winter Softshell Breeches by SmartPak - Knee Patch is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Even the long length is not long These breeches are for my 12-year-old daughter. They are definitely warm and comfortable, but we had to send back the first pair because the average length was not long enough. The tall length is barely long enough for her, but would never be long enough for an actual tall woman. So, for our purposes they work, but for someone who is actually tall - over 5'8, I'm not sure it'd be long enough at all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome midweight breeches I love these breeches and would easily give them 5 stars except sizing was tad inconsistent. Purchased black first and loved them so much decided to buy blue. Ordered same size but blue is too big and need to exchange. That’s ONLY reason not 5 stars. Love everything else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best winter breeches These are hands down the best winter breeches. Perfectly warm and water resistant. Hay and straw brush right off the soft shell. They are a relaxed fit and you can add a base layer under for extreme cold weather.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love I bought three pair of these breeches about a month ago with the intent of not only winter riding but also snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. They are warm with a flattering fit and the fabric repels hay, bedding, hair and SNOW! Reviews indicate that they run a bit generous in sizing so I ordered one in my usual size 30L and two in 28L. I will keep both, but the 28L definitely fit best. Love them!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the same cut as Original Pipers The idea behind these pants is brilliant. My daughter pretty much only wears Pipers, but these did not fit the same. They were tight in the waist and baggier in the legs. Overall not a good fit. Sadly had to return.
    Date published: 2019-12-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these I have not had any luck with Pipers in the past. I’m curvy, so I found that the mid rise felt too low still. The price was great so I was willing to give the winter pipers a go. They are so comfortable, warm and they have BELT LOOPS. My biggest issue with winter breeches is that they can feel bulky, and sag (especially the pull on kinds) but these fit well and stay put. I wore them all week and plan to order another pair. I did decide to size up from my regular size, and that was smart. The only issue is the front seems higher than the back in the waist. It could just be how they fit my body, but it’s not enough to stop me from wearing them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very warm, great feel & fit I love these breeches! They are very warm and comfortable. The soft shell outer also keeps you clean and repels hair and hay/straw from sticking to it. They do run large and after reading other reviews, I ordered a size down (from TS, Ariat and and they fit perfectly. I was originally a little apprehensive about trying a new brand, but these breaches did not disappoint. I loved them so much that I ordered a pair for my daughter and trainer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pockets! Wind protection and pockets? Snowy days are better now that my legs are cozy. Not as slippery as most fleece breeches. Riding was easy.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awkward fit I ordered a size down from my usual and these were still huge. Also have an awkward fit in the leg. Had to return.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad These definitely run big, even one size from my normal they were a little baggy in the butt so I did return them. The material was great tho so I wish they would have worked.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite winter breech of ALL time!! This is officially my go-to for winter riding! I used to live in WY (ID now, where winters are bearable) so have literally tried everything out there— if they are warm, they attract hay and hair. If they don’t attract hay and hair, they aren’t warm. And then I tried these! Absolutely LOVE everything about them! So cozy, great fit, and even repels water (have work them in rain and snow).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sizing Is Off I really wanted to like these. I wear a size 22 and Pipers are one of the only affordable brands I can find in that size. So when their winter pants came on with a good discount, decided to try them. I got the maroon color and it was definitely more purple than I wanted but not a deal breaker. However, they were huge. Not just in the waist, but everything was baggy everywhere. It was like I sized the pants up 2 sizes and increased the calf size as well. I could tell these would not be comfortable to ride in and have returned them.
    Date published: 2019-12-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great breeches I now own two pairs of these breeches because I love them so much. They are warm, comfortable, and I love how dirt/horse hair is easily brushed off of them. They do run slightly big/baggy so it's possible you could order a size down.
    Date published: 2019-12-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Size true to size chart. Well made. Plenty of pockets. I wear fleece riding pants all winter, riding or not, just to stay warm. For me, an added base layer underneath works best.
    Date published: 2019-12-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best winter Riding pants! These are the best winter riding pants I’ve ever owned! They are absolutely worth the money! Super comfortable, WARM, and they stay clean!
    Date published: 2019-12-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable & warm breeches! I ordered these winter breeches in two sizes, because I tend to be between a 28 and 30. As in, the 28's look better but the 30's are more comfortable. I stuck one leg in and my first thought was, "I'm going to MAKE them fit because they feel so good!" And they are so comfortable, maybe the most toasty warm (but not too warm) things I've ever worn on my legs. They are stretchy and also water resistant; I walked the dogs in them after riding and while my friend's breeches were soaked below her raincoat, mine seemed totally dry. I ride two horses daily and was not ever too warm and the temps were in the 40's so not super cold yet. But...they run huge! I'm sure I could wear a 26, but that would be a first for me so I'm afraid to go there. (I'm 5'5" and 130 lbs with a large-ish waist and not pretty straight up and down through the hips.) They do get baggy halfway through the day.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from They seen great but huge I have 30R in other Piper’s and these were huge. I had to return them. I’ll try a size down and see how it goes though I might need 2 sizes smaller. I wish the brand had consistent sizing.
    Date published: 2019-11-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and warm! These breeches fit and are styled much, much more like the Hadleys than the Pipers, so if you love those like I do, these are a fantastic winter breech! The softshell material does a really nice job of blocking the wind, and the interior fleece is so soft that I'm happily still wearing them an hour after I got home just because they're so comfortable. Definitely my new go-to in cold weather! I'm in between sizes, and went with the larger size (what I normally wear in the Hadleys) and am very happy with the fit on them.
    Date published: 2019-11-17
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from They're Huge Excited to get these with the early cold this year, I have several pair of Piper breeches, so ordered the same size, just got by them and they're HUGE - order a size down.
    Date published: 2019-11-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! Super happy I got these pants! They fit pretty well, I did size up being between two sizes. Room for hips and booty but no gapping in the waist! Nice stretch but stay put pretty well. Navy is a nice shade! I can fit my big phone in the pockets and the rear trouser pockets have zippers and look cute! I am a bigger girl and the fabric is nice, thick and smooths bumps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from In loveeeeeeeeeeeeeee I love these I got these in winetasting for a nice festive color for winter. It hasn't been too cold so I haven't ridden in them yet. However, I tried them on and they fit perfectly the fabric inside is soooo soft and felt so warm they will absoulutley do their job also the outside fabric seems durable and tougher so I think it will live up to the windproof aspect as well. Can't wait to ride in these!
    Date published: 2019-10-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and warm These are nice and soft and warm. They seem to run a little bigger and longer than the regular Piper breeches. I just really wish they had the contrasting stitching on the seams/ pockets that makes the regular Piper’s so cute.
    Date published: 2019-09-14
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really like the material and warmth Good fit in length for me at 5'3 1/2" tall. The one feature I do not like is they sag in the seat. I tried a smaller size andv thet were too tight.
    Date published: 2019-02-10
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ended up disappointed! I'm a huge fan of Pipers - I have a few pairs of the Knit & a pair of the Tan Knee Patch. Even though the material between those two models is totally different, I was satisfied that the fit was consistent. That didn't end up being the case with these winter Pipers! The material itself is AWESOME - I love the softshell outer, and the fleece inner is cozy without being overheating. Easy to sweep the dirt and horse hair off. However, the fit seems super weird with these. I'm normally a 24R in other Pipers & these fit completely different. The overall silhouette/cut is much more like the Hadleys, which is OK, I have a pair of Hadleys as well...just definitely not what I expected. Not sure if it's the construction of the material, but the waistband is super gappy in the back when riding, and there's a bunch of extra material around the back of my thighs/knee area. It almost seems like I *need* to wear another pair of tights underneath these to fill them out. Wouldn't buy another pair and these probably won't be in my regular lineup. :(
    Date published: 2019-02-10
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent I have two pairs of these, that I ordered within a month of each other and they are the same size, but they both fit ever so slightly differently (one being a hair smaller than the other). They are warm and I like how comfy the material is on the inside, but I really don't love the waistband. It is not elastic at all, and when you first put them on it is a bit of a struggle to do them up. However ordering a size up would not be helpful, as the waistband does relax throughout the day and you find yourself grateful for your belt. Plus the rest of the pant fits true to size. I feel as though the little hook is too far over, but honestly a more elastic waistband would make these pants much better overall. While they are warm and windproof, the outside material makes them a little bit slick when in the saddle as compared to other regular season breeches. Should probably note that though I live in Florida, I have worn them in temps ranging from 20s-60s (some FL winter days warm up fast in the middle of the afternoon!) and they remain warm and comfy without getting too hot when the temps go up. I think they're a solid winter pant with some room for improvement.
    Date published: 2019-02-07
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very warm. Weird fit. The fabric on these pants is just right for winter riding--soft and warm, but not bulky or stiff. And there are really nice design touches, like the back zippered pocket. They look like real breeches, not like tights, which I appreciate. But I did want to add something about the fit since so many reviewers seem to think they ran large. I think the design might have changed recently? I wear a 30R in TS and Pikeur breeches, and the 32R in these, which I bought due to stocking issues during a sale, was still pretty tight in the thighs, and there's no way I could have gone smaller. The waist, on the other hand, was pretty huge and gappy. And the sock bottoms were too big as well. I think I am a little too curvy for the Piper fit, generally. But I'm personally ok with an imperfect fit on a really warm pair of breeches at this pricepoint. So, my advice: If you're not a stick shape, size up.
    Date published: 2019-02-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm but not too thick These are very nice and well made. They are warm, but not super thick, so not as warm as some. They run smaller than say, Tailored Sportsman. I wear a size 10 in regular pants, and need a 34 in these.
    Date published: 2019-02-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So warm! Inconsistent fit. I bought a pair of these in black last winter and quickly fell in love. These are truely some of the warmest breeches I've ever had. Much warmer than fleece, and the fabric helps block the wind. This year I bought a second pair in charcoal and the fit is different, and not in a good way - tighter at the calves, looser in the hips, and the legs are shorter. It wasn't extreme enough to make me return them, but they are not as comfortable or flattering as the first pair, hence only 4 stars instead of 5.
