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 4 out of 5 by from Slim Capris Nice but too heavy for me. I can get hot easily. Would be good for very cool weather.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement for pantyhose! I've always worn hose under my breeches but they get so hot in the summer! I'm excited about the breath ability of these. I agree that the waist band could be better, but they still beat wearing spanx or pantyhose!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not comfy Prefer the older design. These were not as comfortable and cut much skimpier. Will NOT purchase again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from smooth look I really like this capri under my breeches. I have worn them in 100 degree weather and 30 degree weather. They smooth out the look of my thighs which I especially appreciate when I wear lighter colored breeches and feel self-conscience. I admit to snipping the back waistband seam to notch it which gave me a little more breathing room which did not effect the fit of the pants, nor make the waistband unravel. I wear them everytime I ride and I have purchased three of them so far. They are great!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Do not work under white pants I bought these pants because I needed something to wear under my white show pants that would not be see-through , thinking these were solid , they aren't. And they are very tight and I even got a size larger .

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done. The Capri was slimming and comfortable. I did'nt like the big waist band but it was not uncomfortable. So I do love it! My only complaint is it is very warm. I had to take it off it was 70 degrees. I would not wear them in warm weather but yes when it is cooler. I am a size 8 and a M fit great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Really, really appreciate this product. Comfortable, but smooths out the "bumps". Not longer embarrassed to wear breeches. Will be ordering another pair. Waistband does not roll either.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best I've found - but could be better I've used the Ultra Capri regularly - as in, every time I ride - for more than two years. I've always preferred "long-line" underwear under my breeches and am always searching for the elusive perfect pair. These are the closest I've found. The fabric is breathable and comfortable even in the summer, yet adds a (very slight) extra layer of insulation in the winter. They makes breeches so much easier to get on and off, especially in sweaty summer months. They're perfect under white show breeches. They hold up reasonably well - after two years of constant wear and innumerable washes, the rear seams did start to split, but I can't complain too much about that.However - I must agree with the majority here that the waistband is a huge flaw. It's incredibly uncomfortable. First, it's disproportionately tight compared to the sizing (and comfort) of the rest of the garment. I'm between an XS and an S and have worn both, and I feel almost no difference in the waists of the two of them. Though my waist is about 25, smaller than the minimum sizing listed (or that used to be listed) for the S, the waist still borders on uncomfortably tight. The waistband is wide, but it still manages to be kind of abrasive.I continue to wear these every time I ride - they are by far the best breech-underwear I've found, and therefore I tolerate the discomfort of the waistband. But I continue to be on the lookout for something better, and to hope that Smartpak listens to the numerous complaints about this one aspect of the Ultra Capri...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit I was getting chafed from my underwear and purchased these to wear under my breeches. They fit like a second skin and I no longer get chafed. LOVE THESE! Bought a 2nd pair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for show day! I bought these to solve panty line problems under my white breeches for dressage shows. I expected them to feel like Spanx (super compressive and slightly uncomfortable at the waistband) but was pleasantly surprised. They have just enough compression to keep things from jiggling, but not so constrictive that they are uncomfortable. You can't see a thing under my white breeches, plus they give my breeches the tiniest bit of "slide" on the inside so that I don't have to readjust any fabric when I hop in the saddle. I've worn them all season and they have held up nicely. I wore these at a show last weekend in the crazy July heat, and I didn't have any chafing or rubbing all day long. These have completely replaced regular underwear for me at shows. I'm buying another pair so I'm all set for 2-day shows with no laundry access.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I do not like it. Maybe my skin is too sensitive, but I felt like I had a very thin layer of concrete between my skin and breeches. Just wasted my money.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the legs, not so much the waistband I really like how this fits through the legs. I don't like how you can see every bump in skin tight summer weight breeches, so I bought this as an extra layer. It's a very thin material and feels great under breaches, but the waistband is so wide and tight! It would be great if it was half the width. It squeezes my waist so tight it looks like I'm wearing a corset. This is going to sound crazy, but since I didn't feel like I could return this after I rode in it, I just cut the waistband in half with sewing scissors. Now it's perfect, but the product was too expensive to feel good about cutting into it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from slim yes, running small I bought this item, and had to ship it back for a larger size, than the next size which was a large was still too tight around the waist, they are running very small

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Love it, they are very comfortable!!!!! They are such a thin layer you don't even know you are wearing them.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lightweight but not much compression These are definitely lightweight - which will be great in the Texas summers - but not as compressive as I thought they would be. They will solve the panty line problem in my show breeches which is great and why I will keep them, but I don't know that they add much tone to my backside! They are a bit snug in the waist compared to how fitted they are in the thigh and backside. Usually, that kind of fit suits my body, so for some others, they might really be tight in the waist.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight feel, heavy weight control! I am so much more comfortable in these than the other two brands that I own. I also like the length as to not show a crease above my boots. Very light weight but really smoothing. My 50+ body isn't as firm as it used to be but you would never know it when I wear these. I also like the seamless feature so nothing bumps thru like the other brands. I ordered one pair and wore them everyday (washing by hand each evening) for two weeks so for durability I am guessing.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell apart after one wash - very dissapointed I have recommended this product countless times. I own a bunch of pairs of these. I ordered this pair during your last sale. After one wash the seams on the hem came unraveled on both legs. The material is different from the other pairs I own. I can no longer recommend this product. I will recommend riders go to Amazon and buy Capri pant liners that are sold there for less money and a better quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I was surprised at how light and comfortable these capris were - even at 90+ degrees I didn't feel too warm with them at the show. I got a large, even though I fit a medium-size range - very glad I did as the larges fit fine and the mediums would have been too tight.The waistband doesn't roll, but does pinch a little bit. It's not noticeable at all if you tuck your shirt under it.I would be careful laundering though, as the waistband tends to fray a bit. Will need to be handwashed, and treated carefully to hold up to multiple washings.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for under those hot breeches and more These SmartSlim capris are fantastic. They breathe and are still very supportive. Will be perfect for underneath breeches on a not summer day or been under those skinny jeans after your ride.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect under the breeches! They get the job done. A little high waisted for me so the comfort could be better as the waist rolls and pinches slightly...otherwise, the booty and thigh are well concealed!!Thank you!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job This product does smooth out any lumps or bumps under breeches, but the waist band is on the tight side. I ordered a size small and probably would order a medium next time. I usually wear a size 26-28 waist.
    Date published: 2013-02-25
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I expected I wear a size 8 pant and my waist fell in the 'small' range - I ordered a small and was pleased. They fit snugly, but that's the point, right?

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sometimes Nessary Item To date I've worn the Ultra Capris once and that was under street pants. They helped the pants fit smoothly. I'll wear them for everyday again. I've not worn them to ride. I reserve judgment on how they will feel against the skin when active. I hope they'll not be uncomfortable against skin when I'm warm. Ask back during the summer.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extra warmth! I purchased the Ultra Capris for extra warmth under my winter breeches. They fit great and do add a layer. However, after wearing them a few times, the stitching ripped where the waistband meets the legging.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fluffy 64 I m a short elder rider that is fluffy around the middle .Hard to get anything that does not cause muffin top. Although the waist is a bit tall for me, I can wear them under my breeches without looking like I m popping out of a ketchup bottle. AND I can still breath . Who knew!! wonderful product

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Spanx! Great slimming undergarment. Lightweight and comfortable fabric looks great under low-rise breeches!
    Date published: 2013-01-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from takes off 5 pounds! The smart slims are awesome! I am planning on buying more. They totally tone my thighs and stomach. The fabric is really smooth so my breeches pull on very easily over them. They are way less bulky than other types of leggings or long underwear that I have tried wearing under my breeches. My only wish is that they came in additional colors and that they came in a low waist variety to go better with some of the new lower cut breeches. I can't wait to show in these and look extra slim in the photos!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the capri option The design is great and the idea is good but it would be better if they offered a low-rise option. These seem to be quite high waisted so when I wear mine I roll the top down.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Please fix the waist band fit! I really love these but the sizing is very odd. First off, I am a medium but the ones that fit me are a small. The big problem as many other reviewers have mentioned is that the waist band is so dang tight and these are in no way low rise. I don't so much care about the rise but the waist is killing me! I wear TS Trophy hunter low rise and these tights go way up to my high waist. If I was to even consider pulling them to the level of my breeches there would be even more pain and supreme muffin top, I kid you not! That said, I do love the way these fit otherwise and they are very well made. They are warm and I am using them as long underwear now that it is cold. Please please please smartpak, remake the waist to be at least 2-3 inches looser! I would buy several more pairs but not until this is addressed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from TINEEE Waist! I first purchased one pair of these SmartSlim capris to try. I LOVED them. So much so, I promptly ordered 3 more pair. Well, they CHANGED! The part around the leg (calf) is different now but more importantly the waist in the new ones is tiny!! And I am tiny!! Honestly, if I am uncomfortable in these, I really don't know who else could possibly wear them (and I sent the smalls back for a medium! I am a size 4 with a very small waist). I now fold the waistband down around my hips and deal.. I am very disappointed in the "new" version of these as my original pair fit beautifully!
