We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The SmartSlim Ultra Capri is the next generation in SmartSlims. It provides a high spandex level, offering performance-enhancing compression and four-way stretch for a perfect fit with total freedom of movement. Lightweight yet durable perforated mesh-style fabric is quick-drying and highly breathable. Antimicrobial (gusset liner) flat-seam construction for all day comfort.

The SmartSlim Ultra Capri has a modified rise which is more appropriate under low- to mid-rise breeches. If you prefer a fit for mid- to regular-rise breeches, the original SmartSlims would be perfect for you. The waistband of the Ultra is slightly higher in back than in front for full coverage. Smoother fabric makes it easier to pull up tighter fitting breeches. The bottom is has a comfortable elastic cuff that is more streamlined under tall boots. 

Machine wash cold, tumble dry low. Do not dry clean.

Sport Mesh 76% Nylon / 24% Spandex.

Patent Pending. Imported.

    SmartSlim Ultra Capri is rated 4.0615 out of 5 by 65.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from capris In the video, the manufacturer says to order a size smaller for a stronger degree of compression. This absolutely did not work in my case, as the small is soooooo petite. I am exchanging for a medium. I think I will be satisfied.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected Didn't realize the capris would feel like tight nylons. Very uncomfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooths the curves! As a plus size rider, it's nice to find a product that not only works well but is comfortable too! They're "airy" unlike spanx type control wear, meaning I don't sweat excessively!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I am usually pretty easy to please as a consumer, but I am rather bummed by these new SmartSlim capris. I was really excited to try these because the wide waistband seemed like a good idea, and the fabric is so comfortable. However, the very FIRST time I wore them, the stitching started coming out of the waistband, leaving holes between the waist and body of the capri.I hope that mine was just a defective product, because if they are all like this, I fear that people will not be too fond of the smartslim, which is a like that I've previously really enjoyed.Sorry to be negative, but I wanted to be honest.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth It Like others have mentioned the waistband is pretty wide, so it looks funny if you aren't careful and pull them up too high. Otherwise they work really well with the low-rise TS breeches that have a wide waistband.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from like them, but... I have both the original SmartSlim Capris and these SmartSlim Ultra Capris. Love, love, love the leg hems of the Ultras! Less bulk, and much more comfortable than the leg finish of the originals. The fabric of the Ultras is so nice, too.BUT, in order to get the amount of leg & hip compression needed, the elastic waist is tight. I purchased these for the compression factor & do realize that we all come in a variety of waist sizes, but that waist is small for the compression factor of the legs & hip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!!! I have tried many different brands of "slimmers" for under my riding breeches ! Each one has it's faults such as too hot, too flimsy, poor fit,seams rubbing. This product has none of the above qualities and fits great. Am saving for a second pair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I like these capris better than the Kohl's brand of slimmers. they move better with your body and are cooler.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from as expected Is what I expected. Fit was perfect except the waistband was a bit snug, which my friend also mentioned, but I still like mine. Very thin material that did not hold in heat... Which is a good thing

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gave me a smooth look! I was a little worried these would make me hot, but they did not. I love the support and the smooth appearence of my hips. They fit great and I used them under dress pants, too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Relief! I first wore my Smart Slim Ultra Capri's during a lesson on the first 96 degree day that we had this summer. I was amazed that they did not make me feel hotter with the additional layer. They were extremely comfortable and did exactly what I was looking for which was to avoid getting burns from the seams on my fullseat breeches during an intensive training session. Thank you for a great product!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but snug waist I really like these.They do hide a multitude of sins.My only complaint would be that the waist band is very tight.I have not ridden in them yet cause it has been to hot and I am not showing at the moment,but I think they will be really nice.I like the feeling that I am doing everything in my power to make the best of a not so easy fashion statement........

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Legs OK, waist oy! I really like the fit in the legs; however, the waist is entirely too small. If I were to get a larger pair, they would be too big in the legs, so I am dealing with the waist. I am not a thin person, and I do not carry extra weight, so it's a problem with the pants. Breeches do fit so nicely and smoothly over them. Makes me feel better when I wear these under the thin, denim breeches that I have. Until the waist issue is addresses, I would not recommend these.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tight waist band! Love the fit in the legs, but the waist band is entirely too tight! I'm still trying to stretch them out a bit. I think I can live with it. Great for the summer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gave me more confidence! I wear these on show days, and they are super comfortable. They smooth out my tummy, and eliminate any stray jiggle. The waistband doesn't roll, and the material is breathable. They seem durable, but they are reasonably priced enough that I would buy another one next season if needed.I have recommended these to all of my friends!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and purpose I wore these under my breeches for my first ever show and I felt so good. They are very lightweight and didn't feel hot. It is actually a much nicer feel and weight than spandex for the same results. I ordered a large as I am a size 14, 5'10" and I was worried if they would be big enough. They were perfect! And not skin tight so I couldn't breath.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great under show breeches! Just got these for my first show. I wear FITS white show breeches, and they came with FITS Wunderbreech. However, I prefer the SmartPak Smartslim Ultra. It is supportive, sleek and seamless under white breeches. I used these also as a base layer when the weather turned cold over the show weekend. I ordered a medium, and they fit well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ditto on the scratchy waistband other than that, they are comfy, they breathe, they fit well under my breeches -- all the things they're supposed to do!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I do not have experience with the original product that other reviewers mentioned, but I ordered these and found them to perform exactly as described. They were comfortable to the point that I am wearing them under other (non-riding) clothes, and they hide every bump and wrinkle. I have not had them long enough to tell durability, nor to test them in sizzling-hot weather. But my initial impression (after two machine washings) is that they retain their shape, hold up well, and were comfortable in 80-degree heat while riding. I like this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New and Improved=Slim and Sleek I was a big fan of the original SmartSlims so naturally paranoid and suspicious about these next generation ones. But, as an adventurous DQ, I thought I'd give 'em a whirl. It's like SmartPak read my mind! These definitely ARE a "new and improved" version! I love the wider waistband and better grip at the bottoms. And the seams really are seamless. But my most favorite feature is the space-age material these are made from that make sliding breeches over them super easy! I wear these all day at shows and forget I have them on.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh These appear to be well made, but the fit is a bit bizarre. The waistband is very thick and pinching, and seemed very small in relation to the rest of the garment. (I wear a size 26/28 breech, have pretty ordinary proportions, and ordered a size Small.) I bought these to wear under light colors, and I think they'd be fine for that purpose if they weren't so uncomfortable. I imagine they'd be durable, too, but I don't expect to wear them enough to find out. This is a shame, as they're quite pricey.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Much more comfortable than other brands. Didn't make me hot either.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Product I have only had these for about two weeks, so I can't comment on durability, but I've worn them 3-4 times (even under khakis :D) and I like them. The only thing I don't particularly like about them is the waistband is slightly abrasive and the rest of the fit is fine, not too tight and I like the rest of the material, so it may be that I have sensitive skin. I just tuck my shirt into them and it is fine. Otherwise, I really like these. I like the bottom of them better than the original Smartslims.
