We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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'!).

Why We Love This

The Ariat Close Contour Half Chap is built with thoughtful design, durable construction, and top-quality zippers. These half chaps are made from premium full-grain waxed leather with a hung leather lining and oiled leather inner calf panel. They have a full length elasticized panel on the lateral side for comfort and freedom of movement.

Favorite Features

  • High Spanish cut topline
  • Full length back zip system w/ keeper
  • Stretch skirt over instep

Ariat® Close Contour Half Chap is rated 4.206896551724138 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, professional look I've practically lived in these for a couple of months now and while I was initially worried about the zipper in the back, right where all the dirt accumulates, I've been relieved that saddle soap keeps everything clean and moving so far. They look great. For fit: I ordered the XS and S regular because according to my measurements the XS should have fit, but I had a hunch that it wouldn't and I was correct. But with Smartpak's amazing customer service, I just returned the XS and that was that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and feel! I have just had these for about 3 weeks, and after reviewing the fit comments from others, decided to order the Medium/Short, even though if you look at the measurements given the Small/Short should have been the correct size. I am 5' and 117 lbs and the medium short fit perfectly, and with my Ariat paddock boots, give me the feel of a nice, stiff tall boot. So far, I LOVE them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great half chapas I got them on the beginning of the summer and after riding in them everyday, multiple times a day, they still look great. They are more fitted like tall boots so when I first got them I thought they are too small even though I measured my leg correctly. I decided to not return them and to try to break them in like tall boots. After a week I didn't have to force them on and they fit my legs perfectly. So far my favorite pair of half chaps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from GET A SIZE UP. I ordered these online based off of the sizing chart. I'm a Medium Tall in everything I've ever worn from Ariat, including a pair of Heritage tall boots I purchased a few months ago. Figuring that would be the right size for these too, I ordered a MT. When I got them, I could barely zip them past my ankle, even with my boyfriend's help. The sizing is way off with these, which is unfortunate because they are beautiful half chaps.The leather is soft and great quality. They're tall enough even for me (I'm a 6' female) and look great. Unfortunately because of the terribly off sizing I will be returning these and purchasing from Dover or someplace where I can try them on first. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better fit than the more expensive Monaco model! Because I'm tall I have always ordered Ariat's Monaco half chaps because they run tall but this time I decided to try the Ariat Contour half chaps because they were less expensive. They do NOT disappoint. I'm super happy with them. And Smartpak offers all of the odd-ball tall sizes which Dover does not.
