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'!).

    Harwich Soft Leather Half Chap is rated 4.4762 out of 5 by 63.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice product with flaws I bought these 6 months ago but have only recently started wearing them. The leather is very nice and the sizing is perfect. When I first went to put them on I struggled getting the bottom elastic over my paddock boot, wishing they could have added a 1/2" to the length to make it easier. Today I noticed that the stitching holding the inner calf patch on has completely worn away! I'm riding 2 horses and do not have my legs clamped on their sides. I have not had the opportunity to contact customer service but in the past they have been very fair resolving issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these chaps! The leather is buttery soft and they fit me pretty well! My leg is 16 3/4 inches in height and I ordered the tall (17 inches). The tall seems to fit me pretty well, the extra height doesn't bother me at all.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Size NOT accurate!!! I ordered these after seeing them in action and reading the reviews, especially that they were true to size. After waiting 5 weeks (they were backordered and the shipping date kept changing), they finally arrived. Imagine my disappointment when they were a full 1" smaller than advertised in the calf. The label said 14" (I ordered medium), my calf measured 13.8" but there was NO WAY these were going to zip. Confused, because I'd been so meticulous, I measured the actual product and the widest part measured just short of 13"!!! So either I got a mislabeled pair, or someone needs to revisit how to use a ruler! I'm too afraid to get the next size up because they're supposed to be 15" and that would be way too big should those run true to size.I imagine these were newly manufactured, so maybe I just got a pair from a badly made batch. Regardless, despite the half chaps being beautifully constructed and made of buttery soft leather, (which is the reason for the 2 stars), I'm returning them for a refund. If I'm expected to buy stuff online, then the sizing had better be accurate!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd pair AMAZiNG This is my second pair only for the reason that I lost weight and needed to get a smaller size but these are True to there sizing, and the leather quality is amazing, eazy to care for I just wipe them clean after rides and clean/condition them once a week! These are a must! I love that they come in BiG sizes and small

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chaps actually made in real sizes! After years of searching for chaps to fit my 18" calves, I found them! They are also soft and well made.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, soft leather! Just received these half chaps and I'm very impressed with the quality of the leather and workmanship! I ordered per the guidelines on the size chart and they half-chaps I received fit perfectly. Can't comment on the durability since I just received them, but by the look of the workmanship, I expect they will last at least as long as some of the more expensive "big brand" half-chaps I have purchased in the past.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good I bought these as a gift ...Would recommend for good everyday use and middle of the road or above average product for the price.Would add that at least from what I notice they do not run large as some previous reviewers comment (I hedged between small / medium and the small was too snug) - great that Smart Pak as free returns on sized items ... would also say that quality was good (not great), leather quality fine, but zipper was a little hard to navigate
