HappinessGuarantee
At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

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! 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'!).

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.

    Ariat® Close Contour Half Chap is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 48.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Beautiful and Fit Great! I finally found the perfect pair! I measured between Med and Large, and Large Short fit me perfectly. I measure shorter than a short by 2-3 inches, but they will work ok in height / no worse than my previous chaps. Leather is soft and they look like nice tall boots!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look I bought these 3 weeks ago when the other Ariats I ordered that were on sale were cancelled due to being oversold. I ordered the XXS and was very worried they would be too small. I am 5’1” and my calf is about a 12.5. They were at first very tight and hard to zip all the way up but after about 4-5 rides they stretched out nicely and fit wonderfully now. They are elegant and look like a very nice boot. I am happy I bought them. Only time will tell on how well they hold up as I haven’t had them long. Just remember they will stretch so go with the smaller side.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality half chap Ariat close contour half chaps arrived - true to size chart - quality leather that did not require any break in time -comfortable at the first ride and mistaken for a tall boot!
    Date published: 2018-06-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality half-chap I have never purchased a zip half-chap -- always Velcro tab closures, so this was new to me -- especially the back zip which was definitely a time consuming hassle to zip during the first few times I wore them. However, I have figured that (for me) the best way to zip them is to THRUST the zipper into the receptacle -- working from the inside of my leg (instead of approaching it from the outside or back of the leg). It still takes a little bit of being a contortionist, but it will get easier with time. I like the way they feel when I ride -- very soft and flexible. The sizing of SS (according to my measurements) was perfect. I bought these along with the Ariat Devon pro XV paddock boot. They work/look great together.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I LOVE my old Ariat half chaps. Trying to purchase new ones has been frustrating as the sizing has changed dramatically. I have had to return 2 pairs now trying to get the right size with lots of time inbetween waiting for them to arrive as they are always on back order. Would love for Ariat to be consistent with their sizes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great off the shelf half chap with many size options this half chap fit me pretty well, The zipper is heavy duty and the leather has not worn out after 3 years of use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the best Have had these for two weeks, and they are the best half chaps I have had, and that includes other Ariat (Breeze), TredSteps, and Grand Prix. I bought the size I measured, and they are fine. They were initially stiff to start the zipper, but I sat down and put my foot over my opposite knee and was able to pull the two sides of the chap together and then insert the zipper and get it started. Mine are a bit high at my knee, but I just unzip them an inch or two. They are tight and supportive, like a great pair of boots (probably better). I give them a quick saddle soap after each ride, and they clean up quickly and easily. What else can I say about them? My TredSteps literally gave me tendonitis doing a pretzel twist to zip them up, and will never buy them again. The Breeze have that slippery lining . . . Buy these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 90 mins and 2 pr of pliers Should have listened to most of the other reviewers and ignored the pretty straightforward size chart included for these chaps. Size chart says 14.5 inches is a size small. With breeches and socks, at the widest part, my calves were just over 14.25. I got these in small per the chart, and, as many others have noted, I couldn't even zip them when I first took them out of the box. Thanks to the reviewers who said they just needed to break these in like tall boots, I decided to make it work. (They are truly beautiful.) 90 minutes, two pairs of pliers (one to grab the zipper and one to pull the elastic closer), and much unwholesome language later, I finally had them on -- and what's weird was they actually felt fine once they were zipped. They look gorgeous and give great leg support.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A reliable go to! I'm always satisfied with my Ariat close contour half chaps. I've had several over the years and they're sizing is very consistent and the chaps hold up well for riding multiple horses every day.
