SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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!

And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    SunShield Long Sleeve 1/4 Zip by SmartPak is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value and high quality Bought one of these and a Piper sun shirt to try both- I liked this one much better than the Piper sun shirt (which surprised me!) I'm 100% willing to pay a little more for this higher quality/more flattering SunShield shirt than a Piper sun shirt. Fits better on people who have shorter arms. Tucks in to breeches well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and long enough to stay comfortably Tucked into breeches. I ride 3-4 horses a day in the hot Florida sun This shirt keeps me comfortable and dry. Highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage at a great price I'm a distance rider so I'm all about comfort - 8 hours in the saddle out on the trail in the heat can make for a long day, especially if your clothing isn't comfortable. This sunshield shirt is super comfy and gives me the coverage I need so I don't have to be slathered in sunscreen (a feeling I hate), and it breathes really well, wicking away sweat and keeping me comfortable. It performs as well or better than some of the others, without the hefty price tag, And it looks good, too!
    Date published: 2019-09-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish sun protection This SunShield was the first sun shirt I've worn. I was a bit skeptical about the concept of wearing a long sleeve shirt in 80+ degree weather, but I am so happy that I made the decision to try this out. I now have one in four colors! Not only does it provide sun protection, which is very important to me, but it also features mesh under-arms to keep you cool, as well as moisture-wicking technology to keep the sweat off. It’s great knowing that I can do barn chores, go out on a long trail ride or ride multiple horses on a sunny day knowing that my skin is protected while staying cool and dry! I also wear this outside of the barn when going on runs and playing tennis, I love how versatile this shirt can be as it can be worn in and out of the barn! I typically teeter between a small and an extra small, and I wear an extra small in this shirt.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shirts! I've now purchased 2 of these shirts and the third one is on the way. I love these shirts. They are cool, wick well, and are very flattering. I wear them on cross country and for clinics. They do not have a stock tie loop but I think you could still get away with wearing them under a coat if your tie covered up the zipper. They wash super well and after trying a few sun shirts I'm most happy with this material as far as durability.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs big I am a size M in almost everything but when I got this shirt which was custom ordered for my college with the logo it was WAY to big. I am still going to keep it but it runs big
    Date published: 2019-08-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reall good I looked at the other reviews and ordered a medium even though I’m usually a small and it fits great. Great product for the price. I wish there wasn’t a smartpak logo on it, but it’s fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Washes well, lightweight, nice mesh feature I am kind of obsessed with these shirts--I have been looking for sun shirts that won't break the bank but that will protect me from the sun and the mesh vented arms are a must have. Sunshields are perfect! Fit is great, it doesn't hold barn dirt like cotton shirts and it cool enough for the appalling summer heat we have here in Oklahoma. They are also long enough to cover my torso comfortably, which I have had a hard time finding in other brands. My only critique would be that I would love to see more and varied lighter/pastel colors since I never wear dark colors in the sun.
    Date published: 2019-07-24
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice color, stage fit. Got this in two sizes... the medium was snug and the large was very big. The sleeves are also short which is too bad because the colors are nice!
    Date published: 2019-07-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what you want for hot weather I bought a couple of these hoping they'd be 'OK'. They are very comfortable, well made, they look good & hold up to washing well. No more issues with sunburns when riding and teaching outside in the summer.
    Date published: 2019-07-18
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very cool Trying to find a sun shirt that doesn't break the bank so decided to try one these. It fits true to size and is great in the heat. My only problem with is the material and I'm not sure how long it will hold up
    Date published: 2019-07-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable shirt! I have purchased several of these Sun Shirts and love them because they keep me cool, very comfortable, protect me from the sun and are loose enough in my waist they don’t stick to my skin. I have had other brands of sun shirts that stick to my skin in spots.
    Date published: 2019-07-03
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Great quality, nice colors (although the robins egg is lighter than expected), and okay fit. I like that it is long enough to tuck. I wish it was more femininely shaped - it is quite boxy
    Date published: 2019-05-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I've ridden in this shirt 3-4 times now and it's fantastic on hot days. I have wide shoulders and the sleeves are just slightly too short when I'm holding the reins, but it's well within the "matter of preference" length and I like a longer sleeve. Here are the measurements of a medium in case they are useful to someone: Shoulders: 15 3/8" Arm: 23 1/2"
    Date published: 2019-04-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and flattering I love these sun shirts and have 3 now! They’re very comfortable and I love the variety of fun colors. They’re also more reasonably priced than other brands and I also like how there’s more room in the arms than others as well. I would highly recommend this product!
    Date published: 2019-04-01
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sleeves are too short This sunshirt fit decently, but the color (maroon) still shows a lot of sweat stains and the sleeves are 2 inches too short. I like the fabric and fit otherwise, it’s comparable to EIS but a little more stretchy. I got a medium hoping the sleeves would fit but they were still short despite being baggier everywhere else. I’m 5’7” and 150 lbs. Kind of disappointed as I wear sunshirts year round and was hoping for an affordable option to avoid wrist tan lines.
    Date published: 2018-10-20
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Odd fit, beautiful colors I ordered 2 of these sunshirts and while I was thrilled with the fabric quality and gorgeous colors, I unfortunately found the fit to be odd and unflattering. I'm 5'11" and have pretty normal torso and arm length and don't usually have an issue with size M shirts. These sleeves were far too short, and the hem hit at a weird spot and almost ballooned out from where the side splits were sewn. Very unflattering on, and fortunately I can send back for free thanks to SmartPak's great policies. For reference, I wear a M in Kastel and Ariat and have not had any issues with long sleeve shunshirts from those brands.
    Date published: 2018-10-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shirt For me, this shirt may run a wee big. I ordered a size or two up because of my long arms and abundant chest. Those are my two areas that make finding a good fit a challenge. The shirts are pretty true to the color represented on their website. They are great in the heat and are much more stylish than the sun shirts I was using. Washed them a couple times thus far and they are holding up well. I am following the wash and dry instructions on the shirt. I will be buying more of these shirts. Love the variety of color options. Would love more. All in all a great shirt. They even look good outside the barn.
    Date published: 2018-10-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my new favorite sunshirts! Bought one of these on a whim at the Smartpak booth at WEG, since they were on sale. I have to say I am very pleasantly surprised at how much I like it! Quality and construction is on par with the EIS. Similar materials, even down to the zipper pull. I like the fit of the Smartpak one better though- EIS can sometimes be short and too boxy, definitely did not have this issue with the Sunshield. Sleeves are a little on the shorter side, however with gloves on I did not have any exposed skin and I actually don't love when the sleeves are longer, because they bunch up around my wrist. So I think the length of these sleeves is almost perfect! I hope they come out with more colors like red, grey, maybe even some of the color blocked ones like EIS. Sizing seems generous. I wear a L in most brands, got a M and it fits perfectly. However, if you like your sunshirts on the baggier side, I would stick to your normal size. Overall highly recommend this shirt, and I plan to buy more very very soon!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable Shirt Really nice shirt, the material is very comfy, and it wicks water super quickly. One thing is that the sleeves are short...
    Date published: 2018-07-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking shirt I love the turquoise color of the shirt and will be using it often this summer to keep from frying myself in the Colorado sun.
    Date published: 2018-06-26
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My current go to sun shirt I live in sun shirts because I try to avoid total sun exposure. I received this shirt as a freebie with something else I bought and I was skeptical because I had tried a different smartpak top that was not a good fit. This was such a pleasant surprise. I got a medium, where I would normally wear a small because I didn't want a super tight fit. This flows exactly as I want, not loose and baggy but not skin tight and definitely flattering. I never tuck in shirts so I love the side slits but it definitely could tuck without a lot of bulk. The mesh under the arms and sleeve is more than many sun shirts I own and that makes me really happy. Some of these shirts have just a scant amount of mesh and I don't find it cooling. The fabric of the top is perforated but somehow doesn't let the sun in, but it lets me feel cooler. I find that it cleans very well. I gave it 4 stars because the sleeves have very long 2 inch cuffs which re great until I want to push up my sleeves when hosing or cleaning. They don't have much give so they are hard to push up. However, these current pictures and the review I've seen look like maybe the cuff is different now. It looks much more open. The only reason I have not bought a week's worth of them is because I'm waiting for my current rotation to wear out before spending money. I will definitely get this style when I need more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The shirt works I purchased the Sunshield shirt without any real expectations. I wore it today and am a believer. The shirt did keep me cooler that wearing a typical tee-shirt. I like the color as well. I am in Florida, and we know that it can get hot down here. I am not saying that I did not get sweaty. The shirt did allow me to stay cooler. I will be purchasing more of them. It is going to be a hot, humid summer down here.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade! These have come a long way since I purchased my first Sunshield shirts a few years ago. Love the new fabric and the mesh under the arms. Just as good as any of the "higher end" brands. Purchased when they were 30% off, so value can't be beat
