Sizing Chart for Ariat® Close Contour Half Chap
Reviews
Ariat® Close Contour Half Chap is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite half chaps! Not sure where the bad reviews are coming from, I’ve ridden multiple horses per day, and put these things through the wringer, including mud and crossing streams while wearing them and I’m only just about to start breaking in my replacement pair 8 years later. And that’s only because the leather is scratched up from hard rides through brambles and has faded. All the snaps and stitching are still holding strong. They run a little bit small but break in like tall boots. Get them snug and within a week or two they’ll be perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For great. I’ve been wearing them for a couple of weeks and they are breaking in nicely.
Date published: 2021-08-22
Rated 2 out of 5 by from The quality/workmanship/style has deteriorated I had purchased 2 pair of the Monaco, leather half chaps - they were beautiful. The Monaco half chaps looked like you were wearing tall boots. I purchased the close contour half chaps because the Monaco is no longer available. The close contour chaps are “ok” - they are not if the same high quality as the Monaco half chaps. I doubt if they will last more than a year with routine use. Very disappointing. Sizing is correct - I wore a small, tall in the Monaco and the contour small, tall fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful look, terrible quality I have worn these for <6 months, and they are literally falling apart at the seams. I am not a pro, I ride one horse ~5x/week. The stretch panel has multiple holes, and the seams have detached. I’ve tried to repair them, but that resulted in lumpy seams that are wearing on my saddle flaps. Sadly, these are expensive garbage. This is my third pair of the close contact chap, and the only ones I’ve found to fit my bird legs. My first pair was great - the last two have been junk. Ariat quality just isn’t what it used to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are so comfortable!! Follow the reviews and go for a tight fit, they will stretch some and mold to your leg. I was skeptical at first as they were SO snug, but after a few wearings around the house they fit great! I don't usually write reviews but the advice given by others really helped me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite half chaps Bought a pair almost a year ago and still holding up great with daily use! Bought another pair to have as a back up. Does stretch out a bit so make sure they are really snug when purchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look like tall boots These chaps are beautiful. Very nice leather and provide a clean look with the zipper up the back rather than on the side. The measurements are true to size. The S measures 14.5" and the M measures 15.5" at the widest part of the calf. I struggled to get the zipper engaged at the bottom but once it is seated correctly it zips up smoothly. Zipper is very sturdy. I zipped them on every day for a week in my house before deciding to keep them. Happily, they went on much easier when I took them to the barn for my first ride. Very comfortable to ride in and provided good grip. I am glad that I worked my way through the initial struggle to start the zipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Half Chaps I bought these half chaps to replace my Tredstep half chaps. I love Ariat paddock boots and have been wearing them forever, but I found Tredstep sizing with half chaps works best for my fit (I wear a 16/16 in Tredstep half chaps). However, I have recently gone through two pairs of Tredsteps within a year because I had issues with their button snaps pulling through and breaking. I finally decided to switch to Ariat, but I was nervous with the half chaps being 17.5 height. I first bought the MS in these (I could not get the zippers to touch) so I then bought the LS and they fit perfectly, hitting the back of my knee a bit before breaking them in. They look GREAT. They definitely took a week or two to drop and stop poking me behind the knee, but for the durability and look of these it is worth it. Easy to clean and I love the fitted support. I have small ankles and big calves and I find they aren't too big in the ankle either.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from too small Way smaller around than advertised and very little stretch in the elastic gusset.
Date published: 2020-03-17
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst half chaps I've ever bought These are great chaps... until they stretch, twist and scratch the heck out of your saddle flaps. DO NOT recommend. I wish they weren't so used so I could return. A complete waste of money.
