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'!).

    Harwich Soft Leather Half Chap is rated 4.4091 out of 5 by 66.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from No where near size chart! I ordered a medium - size 14 inch calf - when it came the calf measured 12 inches - which is really an extra small -- the label on the them said medium!! I had to send them back -- not even worth the trouble.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great leather and look, but didn't fit! I ordered these with high hopes--a friend wears them and loves them. They were backordered, and when they finally arrived they were defective. I think mine are from the same batch as another reviewer's below--I ordered the 14/17, but they measure only 13" at the widest point. They'll have to go back, and I'm not sure if I trust the sizing now to reorder. On the plus side, they're a lovely soft leather and have a great, snug fit over the top of my paddock boots--very sleek looking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Fit and Comfortable I've been looking several brands of half chaps and am always trying them on but have a difficult time with the fit due to the fact that my left calf is larger than my right. Its always too tight on the left or too loose on the right.These chaps look fantastic and I've gotten many compliments (from both horse and non-horse people) in the short time that I've had them. I had a difficult time putting them on the first time over my fat left calf and required assistance, but after that they've gone on easily since! I've not lost any feeling in the left leg (this has happened with many boots and half chaps in my past) and they're so comfortable I forget I even have them on.I don't know why it took me so long to order these, and with Smartpak's wonderful return policy I was able to find the right pair (I had to return one pair because of the fat calf!) and shipping was fast and I had gotten the first pair, returned it and gotten the second all within a week!

    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.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
