    Harwich Soft Leather Half Chap is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 181.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek I bought these to replace a pair of Tredstep. These are sleek and easy to zip. I have only worn them once since being winter I have heavy breeches and these are definitely sized a bit smaller than measurements. They will be lovely with summer weight breeches.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Fit; Soft and Supple I took everyone's advice into consideration about them running small, but decided to go the route a few other reviewers had - buying their size and letting the chaps stretch to a perfect fit. I bought the XL since that's my size in other half chaps, and they fit exactly like a pair of Ariat Concord half chaps I wear. The 17" height of the Harwich chaps is a little taller, but they fit me fine. I didn't have breeches on underneath when I first tried them per reviewers' suggestions, but even though they were a bit tight at the widest point in my calf, I could tell they'd fit very well over breeches. With breeches and socks I'm about a 16" calf width, so measure WITH pants and socks. Now, I only ride 1 horse average 3-4 times a week, so I don't have too much bulk. I was very excited some reviewers said that the ankle was small and tight fitting - I have large calves but itty bitty ankles, and while these were tighter than others, they weren't "a tight/perfect fit" for my ankles. Just an fyi. As for the quality, I love them. They are super soft and supple - I wanted a very soft pair since I will be getting calfskin saddle soon and don't want to scratch the leather. These certainly fit the bill! They do have a bit of gap at the crook of my knee, but I actually like that. I get numbness and painful tingling in my lower legs if I have something digging into the back of my knee, so the fact that these were fitted to my calves but allowed plenty of bending room was a big plus for me. I also love the tight band for underneath the boots - most are always too long and gap! All in all, I love these! I honestly have yet to ride in them and only had them for two days so I can't account for the durability but I can't wait to try them!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Small!!! Maybe I got one that was a mislabel - but I measured my calf (already own a pair of 16" calf half chaps in suede). I ordered the xl tall. They got here and there was an almost 4.5/5 inch gap, where they would not zip closed on my calf. I could not zip past the ankle. We measured them laying out and they only came to 11 inches open at the widest part laying flat. Laying them on top of my existing half chaps to check, still a 4.5 inch between my current chaps and these :(.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful soft leather. Loved the chaps, but unfortunately the calf size was way to narrow for me, even though I measured my calf before ordering. Had to return the item.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent half chap but tight around foot These half chaps look good on, and are comfortable except around the foot. I have small calves and narrow feet and they're still small even with sleek paddock boots (not the bulky kind)'

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sizing is very off. I bought these a size bigger than I measured after reading the reviews that they are sized smaller. I normally buy XS/tall 1/2 chaps and got these in a small. I checked the size chart as well and still went bigger based on reviews. I got the half chaps and they didn't come close to fitting. I measured the calf with a cloth tape measure and it was 2" smaller then the size chart. Its too bad, they seemed very nice otherwise. I bought a different brand that I could try on in the tack shop.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft, supple leather!! I love the Harwich that Smartpak carries. These chaps are soft and supple right out of the box. They do run small especially around the ankle. I actually returned the medium for the large/regular (and I have small legs) as I had trouble zipping down past the ankle. They are a tiny bit loose below the knee to the calf, but I can zip them at the ankle and they are still snug. It is the design, where rather than being straight in the cut, they round out over the calf and then narrow down to the ankle. Just keep that in mind when you order. I know snug is better, but I did not want to stress the zipper and have it separate - then you have a big problem! I have worn them 3x and I love them! With the larger size, I can wear them with either riding pants or jeans if I want. Nice chaps for the price too and returns are so easy at Smartpak so no problem there...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful, soft and durable feeling leather. I love these chaps. I bought them for when I don't want to wear my tall boots but I still want to look more 'polished'. They are made well, the leather is substantial, but they do run SMALL. I had to go up a size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! I love these half-chaps. They're soft and mold to your legs like second skin.It took three of us to get them on the first time, but since then, I've been able to get them on by myself. I've worn them about five times so far, and I have no complaints whatsoever.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs small The zipper on my boots broke, so I decided to take advantage of Smartpaks awesome return policy and buy these and a pair of tredsteps to find a quick replacement and send back the pair I didn't want. I was hoping these would be the ones but they were too small, they were not even close. The exact same size tredstep fit well with a little stretch. The harwich half chaps seemed nice and good construction, but the leather could have been softer. They seemed like a good pair of chaps for the price that they are.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Soft, Sizing Runs Small I replaced my Ariat All-Around Small/Tall half chaps with these... I ended up having to order a size L Tall to get a proper fit. Cons: The elastic boot strap is tight and therefor takes more effort to get on. Zipper is plastic but seems to be of good quality. Pros: Super, super soft leather. Very secure feeling in the saddle. Beautiful lines. Cleans easily. Very classic looking especially with a black paddock boot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, but run small! These chaps are very soft and feel great on. However, they run very small. I ended up with size large, which is not my typical size. But, I am happy with them and recommend them for the quality and price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty to look at but doesnt last long Bought black one size larger than I normally get because read run small. Perfect fit but hard to get on, easier if sitting down. They lasted three weeks when zipper broke on one of them. Now black was sold out.... So got brown... they lasted 2 months but zippers fall down when riding, not durable at all.... Disappointing... the bling was a good idea but need to look at these, not ride in them very hard..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What's the catch? I'm wondering if somehow agreed to sell my firstborn for these half chaps. I was in a pinch as the zipper on my Tredstep half chaps broke (after 4 months) and a friend at the barn recommended these. Not only are these less expensive than most Tredsteps but are much nicer in my opinion. I was nervous when I first tried them on because they were VERY tight, but after 2 rides they stretched and fit great. I wear a 13 or 14/16 in Tredstep and got a medium in the Harwich. The icing on the cake was that I bought these during a "all Smartpak brands 20% off" sale. Can't attest to their durability because I've only had them for a month but I can tell you they are the best looking and fitting chap for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly comfortable I had another pair of half chaps that were washable and they never stayed in place - they always slid down - so glad I got these chaps they are comfortable and they stay in place - easy to clean and look great

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Second skin! Super soft. I've had these for almost a month and I LOVE them! They are super soft and very comfortable. They do run a little small, which I saw in a lot of reviews but I have smaller calf so I figured I'd order my size, which was a little mistake, they were pretty hard to get on at first but after quite a few rides they are just the right fit! I love the cut at the bottom because I do ride a pony that needs spurs every ride it's nice to not have to fit spurs over bulky half-chaps! I looked at a bunch of half-chaps and asked a lot of friends, and I just spent the money because I knew smartpak has free returns! Very excited to continue to ride in them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice soft leather I was searching for chaps for some time. I had bought these chaps in February and used them for every ride. after few months, I noticed a small hole in a seam at the zipper part, which concerned me because it was getting bigger. I contacted SmartPak with my concern and I could return these chaps, again no hassle 100% return policy. I was amazed! I wanted to try different brand of chaps but at the end I ordered the same ones and I am really satisfied. Thumbs up to SmartPak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super handsome! Started out tight, usually wear a tall, measured regular, too short. Easy return and the tall was just right. Could barely zip them at first, but by the third wear they had gotten easier to zip. Nice streamlined look, super supple and handsome. For the price, these are great!
    Date published: 2016-07-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Soft, Look Nice! I bought these half chaps last week, and like other people, I was VERY nervous about the fit. I used the exact measurements from the size chart, 15" calf and 16" height (large). When I first got them, it was VERY hard to zip them up. I wore them around with just thin socks for two days, and then with boots and breeches another couple days, and they already fit much better. They're definitely fitted, but I like that look and I love how they feel now! The leather is VERY soft, so the only problem I could see is them getting scratched easily. So glad I decided to purchase these.
    Date published: 2016-07-24
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs small I have bought multiple pairs of other half chaps in 15/17. Ordered the large in these and there was no way they were even close to zipping up so am sending them back. The leather was very supple and soft and they look beautiful but sizing definitely runs small.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love How These Stretch for a Custom Fit! ***TIP ON HOW TO GET THESE TO ZIP AT THE END OF REVIEW!!***Just like everyone else, I bought these wary of the fact that they run small. I erred on the side of bigger rather than smaller (I was between a medium and a large) and I was quite happy that I bought the large! Although they are a little long for me, they do not interfere with my riding. Besides, they are for schooling purposes. I would not recommend these if you are short, have wide calves and would mind these being long.I'm 5' 2" and purchased the large size. When I first tried them on, I was frustrated because they showed no signs that they would zip. However, I came up with a solution; run zip ties through the holes in the zipper to create a loop (about the size of a key ring or a little bigger if you'd like). This makes the zipper easier to pull up and down (because the zip tie is a little extension) and you can exert more force to get them to zip. I can easily button these half chaps but when I first put them on, I was nearly hopeless about getting them to zip. The zip tie trick worked wonders for me! Once these finally stretch to fit my calf, I'll simply cut off the plastic zip ties. As I continue to wear these, they stretch out and seem to be creating a custom fit to my calf. I want my half chaps to be tight and secure so I have the best contact to the saddle and my horse. If you find that you CAN zip them but they make your leg numb, I would strongly recommend going up one size. You want them snug but not *too* snug.All in all, these are great, soft half chaps that I hope to use for years to come. They were a great price, too! Just got to know how to get 'em to zip.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality for the price Bought these because I occasionally show English at local open shows and didn't want to invest a lot of money. They are comfy right out of the bag!
    Date published: 2016-07-18
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft leather I bought these a few weeks ago. They are beautiful and buttery soft. I have 17.5 calfs so I bought the 18. So that also means they are a little loose on me. I would return them but there is not a size 17 calf offered so I just stuck with the 18. The calf sizes skip from 16 to 18. Im also concerned that because they are so soft they might not last long. Time will tell!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from RUNS SMALL! I have bought this product and usually go in a small so without thinking bought a small pair just to find out they don't fit at all luckily I returned them with no problems and got a medium but they are still a bit tight. Other than the sizing these are a great product for the price:)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a Half Chap that fits my big chalves I have large muscular calves that are about 17-17.5", and they are short, only 16.5" tall. It is really hard for me to find half chaps and tall boots that fit. I bought the wide regular size and they are perfect! They were a little bit tight at first, but after a couple of wears they started to just mold right to my calves. I do wish that they came in a 17" width instead of just going from 16" to 18". They are very stretchy and give a lot of room for different types of breeches. Overall fantastic half chaps!
    Date published: 2016-07-12
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from So soft, but too small Had to return because they were too small, but they were so soft, I loved the leather. So if you have thin calves, these are perfect for you!
