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'!).

Ariat upgraded the Classic III Half Chaps to a softer full-grain leather, plus a more breathable moisture-wicking lining. Also improved are the inner panel design and stretch system over the instep, resulting in an elegantly refined half chap.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Chaps I haven't owned these long at all, but I love the fit! I don't love the flap that covers the zipper on the outside and I really wish it had a more streamlined look, but it doesn't affect their function at all. The biggest issue I've had with them is that I was riding a very sweaty muddy horse, and the suede got filthy. I've tried everything including suede cleaner, and nothing has gotten it off. They are still usable, but the suede it stiff and not as grippy now.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Half Chaps I boiught these half chaps for my 14 year old daughter using her Ariat tall boot measurements. They fit very, very tightly when she first tried them on, to the point that we considered sending them back. I am glad we didn't, because just as the tags promised they relaxed when she began to ride in them and now they fit perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last forever! I got my first pair of these half chaps over 10 (yes 10) years ago! The only reason I bought new ones is because I just got black paddock boots, and I felt weird riding in brown half chaps and black boots! These wear fantastically. They are super durable, and I have no complaints whatsoever. They really do last a long time even if you ride everyday. My new ones fit just right, and they were easier to get on the first time than the older version were. I am still waiting for the back part to drop under the knee (I have only ridden a handful of times since I got my new pair), but my riding schedule has picked up so I am sure they will drop soon. I love these half chaps and wouldn't buy any other brand. They are true to size, durable, and a great value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still A Favorite After The Update I have used the Ariat Classic Half Chap since 1997. This is my third pair. I have always been pleased with the updates to the item. This time the chap is thinner but in a good way. They are more streamlined and less bulky on the leg. This item still protects my leg with the nice suede panel against the stirrup leather and the smooth leather panel on facing outside.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I've only had these 1/2 chaps for a little over a month and so far they are great! The leather is soft and they look really nice... the only thing I'm a little worried about is that instead of buttons these chaps have velcro... I'm a little worried that the velcro isn't going to hold up at long as snaps would... but other than that, these are great!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looking chaps These chaps are beautiful, they have a great grip and they're super comfortable! I love the suede that's on the inside of the calf, it sticks right to my saddle and there is a nice stitching detail on it. Only reason for 4 stars is the elastic in the back stretched way out. They were snug (as they should be) when I first got them, and I expexted the elastic to stretch when they were on but retain its shape when I took them off. After wearing them for a week, the elastic was permanetly stretched and now they're a bit more roomy than I'd like. Other than the elastic, the zipper is really durable, it seems like it will never break and they look great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Chaps I like that they are the nearest chaps I could find to wear with Ariat paddock boots to simulate hunting dress boots. I have short thin legs but wide (bunionoid) feet so no long boots fit. They are of substantial shiny leather but the suede inside is hard to keep clean - if you gallop through a lot of mud! Can't speak for durability yet.So many fit options are great.
