This Classic Leather half chap is a firm favourite with riders of all disciplines. The soft leather front panel and elasticated back panel combine to produce chaps that are comfortable but have sufficient structure to give good support. The knee strap has an adjustable velcro fastener for additional fit and comfort and the ankle strap is fastened with a strong metal popper to ensure that the sturdy YKK zip will not ride up.
Where does the word “Chaps” come from ?
The English word “Chaps” is an abbreviation of the Spanish word “Chappareros” which was the name given to the tough leather leggings worn by cowboys and farmers on the “Chapparal” - the tough, cactus-strewn and thorny grasslands on the American/Mexican border.
Older readers may remember this also as the name of the ranch in the iconic 60’s Western TV series: "The High Chapparal" set in New Mexico.
