And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Tredstep Deluxe Half Chaps is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 180.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them Excellent fit, comfortable. True to measurements. It only took about 3 rides to work them in - meaning they were tight at first (difficult to zip - this is how they should fit when new). And they're attractive, nice leather. Very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I've been using these half chaps for about a month and love them! They were a little tight at first but now fit perfectly. They're also very pretty.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love I bought this product after having 2 other brand half chaps and both have broken with in a year. Everyone at my barn has these half chaps and seem to really love them. I love the look and wanted to try them out my self. I had a big problem with the sizing because I am a half size but I order up. I have only used these a few times but so far they are wonderful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit I bought these half chaps a month ago, although I wanted Ariat half chaps I was in between their sizes and wound up purchasing the Tredstep Deluxe half chaps. I'd heard great things about them and they exceeded my expectations.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Snaps have been an issue but the leather is great and they fit very comfortably

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but snaps break off I bought these to replace my ProChaps, whose zipper pulls busted after less than a year. I think I just am too rough on putting half chaps on and taking them off. One of the snaps on the lower part of these Treadsteps broke within two weeks. On the plus side, they only took about 3 wears to break in and they did break in beautifully. I had heard that Treadstep snaps can break. I know that Smartpak would probably replace or exchange them, but I'm just going to live with the broken snap, as it's not TOO noticeable and maybe I am just too rough on half chaps since I also messed up the ProChaps in less than a year.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't last as long as I expected I am updating my initial review to comment on durability. I bought these half chaps in Sept 2012 to replace my OLD Tredstep Gaiters. They are a great fit and comfortable, but unfortunately I have worn holes in the elastic panel. I also stopped fastening the bottom snap as it was so hard to undo that the material around the snap developed a hole from me pulling on it. I ride one horse (sometimes two) 4-5 days a week so I certainly don't abuse them. If you only ride occasionally, these might be for you.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful but not very durable If you ride 1-2 horses a day, these will last a while. If you ride10+ then will wear out quickly. I have owned two pairs of these chaps and both stretched out to the point of looseness as well as tearing where the snap attaches to the leather by the heel. They are beautiful to look at and look nice on but there are better options available for busy riders.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice half chaps I purchased these as I needed the abilitity to order by calf and height, (as I am pretty short and don't have kid size calfs!) They fit extremely well and seem to be well made.
    Date published: 2014-05-06
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Chaps - couldn't find a fit The reviews and a desire to step up to a nicer chap led me to the Deluxe. Oh yes, it is a nice, well made, quality chap - no doubt. If you can find one that fits - you'll probably love it - but after 3 tries I gave up. Yes, I measured correctly. I have a muscular calf with a very narrow taper to the ankles - so each time I tried a minor size adjustment - something was too loose or too tight - (yes, they stretch, I know - I'm talking WAY too tight). So unfortunately, am directing my search to another brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and beautiful This is my second pair of these half chaps. My first pairwas stolen after 5 years, looking obviously still looking impeccable, worth a theft! Couldn't make myself by another style, just ordered them this time a little snugger and longer. All around cool chaps, worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best chaps! I have been wearing only these half chaps for years and they are the best! They fit snug and look very fitted and slimming. They are super comfortable and I practically live in them. I ride multiple horses a day and they hold up for a few years and I have never had an issue with the zippers or anything breaking.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love them! I bought the 13'' calf 18" long chaps & really love them! They are very slim fitting and really provide a secure feel. I bought the size down (12" calf 17" long) last year, which started to wear out after a long year of riding, and needed a taller chap. The one inch really helped!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE these chaps! I got a pair of these chaps for $80 on sale at a local tack store. I wanted them in black, but the brown was all they had left. The complete awesomeness of these chaps, however, completely overshadows the color. They are a very high quality leather, I wore them around the house to break them in for a few days before oiling them and they immediately became soft as butter. I wear them with the Giatto paddock boots and it looks great. I was looking for a pair of reasonably priced boots and chaps that I could abuse without feeling too bad, and these are much better than I had expected. Definitely a Tredstep fan!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and great price! Love this product. I am on my 3rd pair of chaps. I ride everyday (7 horses/day) and they last about two years! love these!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great chaps These are beautiful, soft leather, which holds up well over time. Verycomfortable and well made.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Bought as a gift for my wife. She loves them. Fit very snug first time on - easy thereafter. Snug fit necessary due to stretching after use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable. I bought them a couple of weeks ago and have only worn them once, but I love them. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice chaps & great service from SmartPak! I love these new chaps. Once I ordered the correct size (thanks SmartPak for the free shipping & returns!) these chaps fit perfectly. They are beautiful, clean up easily after a ride (just a slightly damp sponge & a little saddle soap), and so far seem to be well constructed. I'm very happy with my purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great half chaps! After going through several pairs of half chaps that just didn't seem to fit right, I found these and they are perfect, and they look great. I have only used them a few times so I cannot comment on durability yet but so far they are exactly what I was looking for and I am very happy with them.
    Date published: 2013-11-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I'm hard to fit for half chaps, but these are as perfect as they're going to get without going custom! They're a bit difficult to do up at the bottom snap, but that's my only complaint. I wear them with the Tredstep Giotto paddock boots and they just look so good!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Chaps Ever!!! I absolutely love Tredstep's Deluxe Half Chaps. It is the only half chaps I will wear!!When you measure for your size, just know that the first couple of times you put them on, you will need someone to help, because of the stretch panel being brand new! Once on, they provide a sleek & snug fit, so you can feel the contact with your horse. Love them!!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from runs small i attempted to buy the chaps 3times lol. they ran small the first two times and the last pair was too baggy. they just didn't work for me. the staff however was wonderful trying to accomodate me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit-once you find the right size I had a tough time with finding my right size so I had to send a couple of pairs back. I ended up getting the length an inch longer than I measure, and the calf a size smaller than I measured to give a tailored fit. I would try measure the calf and pull the tape kind of tight around it to get your correct size; the first few times I measured a 15 but when I pulled the tape tight I measured a 14 and the 14 is the right fit for me in the calf. They were very tight the first few times I put them on, it helped to attach twine to the zipper so you really have something to grab onto when you're trying to get the zipper down. The stretch panel will stretch around your leg, bit it needs a bit of leverage the first few times. I have ridden in them about a handful of times and they have stretched already-enough for the zipper to go down easy, and I'm sure they still have more stretching to go. The half chap looks great and doesn't bunch at the ankle like a lot of half chaps tend to do. Overall, I am happy with my buy and hope they hold up well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Have Some Patience I am 5'4, medium length and sized calves and 115 lbs - I ordered 14/15 and they fit perfectly. BUT! You must have some patience with these chaps because in the beginning, it felt like they were IMPOSSIBLE to zip up (or actually zip down) and you might feel like they run very small. It took about a week for them to zip down without feeling like you're going to pinch your skin...and it took a few rides before you can comfortably zip them down. And now...after many many months, I can zip them down with ease! So when you're ordering, measure per the instructions and order those exact measurements. You will think they don't fit at first, but trust me, they will! I'm glad my patience stayed with me because I love these half chaps a lot!They come out of the box very supple and overtime they become form-fitting. The only complaint I have is the threading - they came apart/loose very soon. Although my chaps are still very much intact, it bothers me to see loose threads hanging out (mainly towards the top of the chaps by the top button). Occasionally the buttons take a lot of strength to unbutton and it feels like I'm tearing the button out.The zipper isn't as heavy duty as it sounds in the description, but if you're careful you shouldn't have any problems with durability.I would recommend these half chaps! They're comfortable, look great and easy to maintain!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I have always highly recommended tredstep to friends but will no longer. They have changed the quality of their products. I got these chaps at the end of March. By the end of April they were very stretched out and would spin around my leg while riding. The leather even started to rip. Within two weeks of having the chaps the "leather" around the bottom button was starting to rip as well. Over all the quality of their products is not what it used to be. My last pair of tredsteps lasted 3 years. Very frustrating! What is more frustrating is that Tredstep won't get back to me or the tack store I purchased them through to rectify the issue. Very disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Half Chap I have tried many half chaps. I love this one the best. It is the best value for durability and the fit!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value - Wish size selection was clearer Nice looking chap - fits well once you get the right size. Be careful to select the circumference as the FIRST number followed by the height. I needed 17/15, and accidentally ordered 15/17. It is a good thing smartpak returns are easy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look great! These are a nice half chap that are a great looking step up from your everyday half chap.
