    Tredstep Deluxe Half Chaps is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 241.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent quality I have larger sized calves (17.5-18) and I am 5'8" (calf length=(15..5) so I was very happy to receive my order for 17/16-Mocha Brown. The fit was great and of course I get assisted with pulling up the zipper until they "stretch out". Very glad there are sizes versus (S,M,L,XL) which is always a dice roll for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these half-chaps! I have had these for a little over a month. I followed the measuring chart for the size and they fit great. They were hard to zip up the first 2 times cuz they were very tight to start. But they loosen with use and now they zip with ease. They stay up, are sturdy, so far have not twisted when riding and they look sharp. Highly recommend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Order your size or up, not less So here's the deal folks. THESE CHAPS DO NOT STRETCH BEYOND THE SIZE YOU ORDER THEM FOR. Whatever size you order is assumed to be your exact size or larger. So let's say you order a size 17" calf? You'll receive a half chap that is 16" wide and stretches to 17" wide. (I actually measured and tested this.) Why do they do this? So that you get the right amount of compression, stability and close contact in your leg, which is actually nice when you're able to get it right. So be sure to order exactly your size or up (if you're in half inch increments). They say that these half chaps are supposed to fit tightly and be difficult to zip until you break them in. BUT this is impossible if the chaps are less than your exact size -- you'll murder your hands and fingers before being able to zip them up. That said, great quality leather, and everything else about these half chaps is great. Gotta send mine back, but Smartpak's got my back I'm sure.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sizing was off I generally have a hard time finding half chaps so I tried these as they have a lot of size options. My calf is 15” and height is 16” so I ordered the 15/16. While the height was perfect, I couldn’t even come close to closing it at the calf. Had to send them back. Also, for the price, I expected better quality leather.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 Whole inches too small in calf!!!! This was a very irritating experience. I ordered these in the 17 inch calf. It was pretty clear the second I wrapped these around my leg they were not going to zip, not even close. Curious, I thought. So, I measured my calf again. It is 16 3/4 with tights. So I measured the half chaps. 14 inches!!!! So irritating. This is the 3rd time I've tried a Tredstep product only to find the size marked is definitely not the size you get. I'm grateful that Smartpak offers free returns, but this is a waste of everyone's time and money.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs small I ordered my exact measurements and they fit to small. Sent back and ordered a different pair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I just bought these. I had a pair of old (15 years)chaps that finally had to be replaced. I hope i get just as much use out of these. The leather is a good quality, and they fit really well wirhout alot of breaking in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fit Bought my first 10 years ago. Perfect fit and so I purchased again.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from strange fit I returned these and went back to the Ariats. I found that these were cut strangely. The curve of the calf did not start until a few inches above my actual calf so I had to squash the chap down around my ankle in order to zip it up the leg. It seemed like it was too long between the bottom and where the natural curve of the calf is. Sorry they didnt work as they seemed to be nice quality and would have fit except for this. I wear a slim tall.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weird Fit I purchased these in the size that should've fit me, it did not. I returned them and got another size that should've fit (according to the Tredstep size chart), it did not. They were way to narrow in the calf and too long for the height. The leather quality seemed good. I returned both pairs back.
    Date published: 2018-05-02
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as they used to be I've owned multiple pairs of these half-chaps and the quality has gone significantly downhill over the past decade (previously I would have rated these half-chaps at 5-stars). The leather is stiffer and the cut is not as defined, specifically around the ankle (lots of excess leather).They will do for winter riding, but I will not purchase again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great chaps for the price! I bought these a month ago (my second pair - last ones finally wore out after three years) and they are super comfortable and stylish. I wear them with my Giotto boots and they looks great together.
    Date published: 2018-04-09
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful chaps! Runs small I bought those nice looking chaps in a wide calf with the hopes they would fit my extra wide calves and small ankles! I have found that I am so not a fan of the zip down feature. My right calf is almost an inch and a half wider than the left so the right one doesn’t fit at all! I am so sad but I am going to keep them in the hopes that with a 20 pound weight loss I will be able to wear them! I would recommend them if you have normal sized calves but for wide? Beware! They run much smaller than indicated

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I wore these for the first time last night (1/30/18). It was a trick getting them on. They were VERY snug. I expected that, but they were designed for people with more refined and delicate ankles than mine. Getting the zipper to go past my ankle took some serious doing. Once I got them on, all I can say is AWESOME!! They were a second skin that allowed me to communicate effectively through my leg. An absolute dream to ride in. I recommend buttoning the ankle strap and then zipping them. Having the ankle strap closed was the trick that got the zipper past my ankle. The ankle "thing" is the reason behind the four star rating.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unfortunate choice for me I ordered the next size up than how my legs measured knowing my legs swell during the day. It still wasn't enough. I struggled with the zipper on several occasions and finally gave up. I never did get them on. They appeared to be good quality and the leather felt nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy as expected My riding instructor recommended these because she's had her pair for 7 years and has loved them. I did my measurements and my calf was 15 1/2 inches without any pants over it so I ordered a 16 calf but they were definitely too big. I returned them and went a size down and they fit great. Even though they are still new, they stretch pretty well to fit my calf. Very comfortable. They provide good grip behind the girth. Easy to clean too! Very happy so far. I expect I will have them for years to come.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit These half chaps fit great sadly I had to return them as the boots I wanted to wear with them didn't fit well.
    Date published: 2017-06-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and material I can't say anything about how well they last because I've only ridden in them a couple of times but I'm impressed with the fit and the quality. Much more well made and fitted than my prior pair.
    Date published: 2017-06-05
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Received these not even a year ago and the stitching is already coming undone on them. Chose these for the custom measurements since I have larger calves and short legs. They are comfortable and soft is all I can say. But they are not worth the $149.95 and i hope they offer some kind of warranty or guarantee. As a rider I expect half chaps to last, especially since I didn't use them nearly as much as I could've since my horse had heath problems all year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Quality! However - size calf down I love these chaps. The leather already feels broken in around your leg. So comfortable! The height is dead on size wise. However, my calf with breeches on measured 17.5". Since Tredstep only goes up to a 17'' calf, I ordered the 17''. When I got them they fit me, but they shifted around on my leg a little more than I would like. They were just a bit too easy to zip up for half chaps that were brand new. So, I returned for the 16'' calf and they will fit just right and break in amazingly due to how supple the leather already is right out of the box. So, overall, I had to go down a whole 1.5'' in width to adjust for break in as the leather on these chaps is very soft and already stretchy out of the package.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great half chaps! These are the only half chaps I will ride in. It does take a ride or two to break them in. the leather is supple and comfortable. I have been wearing these for at least 10 year and am always satisfied!!
    Date published: 2016-10-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Four years later and they are still going strong I am an intermediate rider, lessoning 1-2 times per week. I bought these to go with my pair of Ariat paddock boots and they have treated me so well. They are incredibly comfortable and took 2-3 rides to break in. I recommend these to anyone. I never had an issue with the zippers. I was fitted in a tack shop and appreciated the tight feel (especially having super-slender legs nothing ever seems to fit snug). They are starting to stretch/slouch a bit but that is expected.
    Date published: 2016-10-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy! I just bought a new pair of these half chaps to replace the same brand/style I had been using for the past 4 years. These are awesome half chaps and I appreciate the size selection (I'm tall and slender so tall half chaps are hard to find).
    Date published: 2016-10-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Half Chaps! I've had these chaps for a couple weeks now and half been using them hard- wearing them all day at the barn almost everyday. They are easier to zip up than any half chaps I've had (and I have gone through a lot!). The zipper feels very sturdy and doesn't ever snag on my socks. The leather is supple and make for comfortable all-day wear. Even on the first day, I wore them all day and they felt like I'd been wearing them for months. These chaps are good at hiding scratches which I've accidentally tested a couple times already. I think these are going to hold up to even my level of wear and tear. I love them!
    Date published: 2016-09-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite! Fit great even on my strange size calves! My last pair lasted 2 years with riding 4 horses a day 5 days a week.
    Date published: 2016-08-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for weird size calves! I just bought these a couple of weeks ago amd was really worried about fit as my calves and height (16 cirumfrence and 15 height). They fit perfectly after they stretched about over 4-5 rides. They are very well made and while I dont know how long they will last, I am thinking they will for awhile. The leather is beautiful and they pair well with my Ariat paddock boots. Very comfortable to ride in or just wearing around the barn.
    Date published: 2016-08-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome half chaps! These half chaps are extremely durable, classy looking and comfortable. I've had them for a couple of years and the only part that looks worn in the elastic that goes over the front of my paddock boots, but its really just natural wear and tear. I'm sticking with Tredstep half chaps for now on!
    Date published: 2016-07-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit! I tried other half chaps in my size (17x12) and they weren't comfortable / didn't fit right. It's a tough size to fit because I have a long leg with narrow calves. These fit perfectly!!
    Date published: 2016-07-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit, extremely comfortable and attractive. I bought them a month ago and despite measuring - I had to send them back as the were too big around my calf. I ordered and inch smaller and they're perfect.
    Date published: 2016-07-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Been Wearing These Forever! I bought my first pair of the Deluxe Half Chaps in 2006, and they lasted me until 2011 (holes in the calf). I immediately got another pair, and just can't imagine myself in another brand. The Ariat half chaps have never fit properly, and I find that there is no issue with sizing in the Tredsteps. Just be aware that they may start out small, but tend to stretch over time.
