Rated 5 out of 5 by schicksa Perfect for what I need!
This is my second pair of these half chaps, my first pair I'm finally retiring after 5 years as they are coming apart at the seams! I'm an endurance rider, so I'm not too picky about appearance. It's all about functionality and these are PERFECT for what I need. We get into some pretty grungy areas in our sport, so not having zippers that get gunked up or break is really convenient. Also they fit over varying levels of socks and tights (and ankle braces). I highly recommend them for trail and general purpose riding! They're a little thicker than the normal half-chaps I find, which is actually great because of how much rubbing and beating up I take on trail. They are practically indestructable! They do collect the dirt and stains pretty easy because of the material but they still continue to work great. Awesome price for a great usable product!

These are great half chaps, I ride year round and the velcro allows me to add layers in the winter and shed layers in the summer and they still fit. They are easy to clean, after six years the stitchen is coming undone, but what can I expect I put them through a lot.

Although these chaps do not look the most professional, they get an A+ for practicality! They are 1) easy to put on, 2) easy to clean, 3) totally comfortable to wear, and 4) have great "gripability"! The velcro does get white fuzz stuck in it from my saddle pad, but that is easy to pull off. Mine are a little too big, (I ordered a small) but I figured the extra small would be, well, too small,:) so I was glad the velcro allowed for some leniency!

I got these half chaps for Christmas last year. I havnt had much of a problem with them. Except for the fact that, the first time I wore them dirt started to collect on the velcro. They arent very professional looking, but are great for just around the barn. I have the black ones, and yes they do fade where your leg is on the horse. They collect dirt very quickly, that is why they probably wouldnt be good for a show. I have went through ankle deep mud in them, along with my saxon boots, and they hold up well. Overall they are pretty good, and if you are not a show type of person (like me) you will love these. (:

these chaps were nice for a while but since they are suede they pick up and hold dust really easily. they are also hard to get clean. take my advice and get some nice leather ones

I have had these chaps for about 6 yrs and they have done great but the grippers have fallen halfway off but that is for 6yrs! I would definatly reccomend them to any schooling rider

I bought these about a year ago and I cannot say enough good things. Their price is good and they last a long time. The suede does rub off after use and they dont look at professional as the leather half chaps would, but they do great for anyone schooling around the farm. I would recommend this prodecut to any rider.
