    They come in Tall sizes :), October 11, 2013

    Omieluv (Chicago, IL) –

    I have had a few pair of suede half chaps, which were just ok. They got the job done, but my issues were that I never could find them long as I needed them to be (I’m 5’8″). One day at my local tack shop, I was trying on helmets and chose to look nearly. At the time, I was considering a pair of Ariat half chaps, since a friend of mine likes hers. But, I came across Perri’s Professional Half Chaps and was pleased to see the additional sizing options.

    Sizing

    Anyway, they measured my calf, which is 15 inches, not exaclty slim. I tried on the generous tall and they were very stiff, I needed help to get them zipped and started to break a sweat trying to get them on (it was Summer, lol). I tried on the XL Tall and I could tell they would eventually stretch and be too generous, so I went with the Generous Tall. I wore them at home a few times a round the house to start the stretching process, which helped, slightly.

    Fit & Wear

    The first time I rode, they were pretty stiff, but I didn’t feel them restricting my movement, though I have not been jumping in them.
    I’ve ridden in them 6 times since I bought them and they are early to comform to my leg now. Sometimes I need someone to help me zip them up, but they are getting simpler. I really prefer the leather to the suede in stipulations of look and function. So as far as long term wear, I cannot comment, but so far, so excellent. When riding, they stayed glued to my legs, so there’s no slipping or shifting. But, they don’t cut off my circulation either. I reckon they help keep my legs stable as well.

    Final thoughts

    One of the reasons why I prefer half-chaps is because I would need custom made leather boots, which are really expensive. I do much prefer the look of leather boots though. While these are not the sleekest leather chaps out there, compared to my cheap-o suede half-chaps, these are much surpass and the price point won’t break the bank. I took off 1 star because flaps covering the sipper sorta wing out on me and I reckon they could be more stylish. These are just petty things, but, I would buy a 2nd pair if I get a excellent amount of use out of these.

    These seem to be really nice quality lasting weather. I ride 3-4 horses per day and have been wearing these for about the past two months, they subdue look fantastic. I don’t reckon they are going to wear out anytime soon. These may not by the most stylish half chap out there but they are comfortable and very lasting.

    Best Half Chaps EVER, August 20, 2013

    I was new to English horseback riding when I bought these, and wasn’t too sure if they would work for me because I had never been fit for half chaps previous to, but these fit me perfectly!!!!!

    I took my own measurements at home and ordered online instead of at a tack shop because I was on a tight financial statement. I bought the Generous half chaps and they are awesome. I have somewhat wide calfs so I was worried, but the backing on these half chaps is stretchy and they are super comfortable. The part is just right as well. I’m glad I found these half chaps, they are an exceptional price for what you get. Similar half chaps can be very pricey.

    When I showed up for my first lesson in these half chaps my instructor was super impressed!! She said they fit perfectly and couldn’t believe I had ordered them myself online! ;)
