We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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'!).

    Tredstep Deluxe Half Chaps is rated 4.2947 out of 5 by 190.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great half chaps! I purchased these half chaps on a whim, hoping to find something that was relatively durable and that I wouldn't have to replace in a few months. I've had these for three years now, and they show hardly any signs of wear-and-tear. They are relatively easy to clean, however dust does tend to get stuck in the ribbed portion of the chap. The only issue I've had with these chaps is the snap-buckle to cover the zipper. They are very difficult to undo even after three years of use. All issues aside, these are great half chaps and definitely worth their while.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful half chaps I received these a couple weeks ago and have been riding 2-3 horses a day in them. Half chaps never hold up well for me so I'm hoping these will last longer than the last few I've had. They are a little stiffer than I'd like but that probably will make them more durable. In spite of the stiffness they are very comfortable and easy to put on. The best part was the sizing was accurate the first time! No sending them back because they didn't match my measurements. Overall a very good half chap!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product This is my second pair of these half chaps. They fir really well and wear really well. I especially like the snaps seem improved. My last pair was so hard to us nap at the ankle the snap tore out of the leather. This pair works well. Highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute love! I bought these chaps yesterday and rode in them today and oh my gosh I am in LOVE! Me being a guy, my chaps/boots have to be x-tall and x-slim. These chaps definitely fit those requirements! As for wear I can't comment as I have only ridden in them once. My trainer commented that that looked sharp, and she noticed my leg didn't swing as much over fences. As a teen also I needed something that wouldn't destroy my fast food worker budget, and these where the ticket! TYSM Tredstep!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good half chaps Love that you can buy these in your exact size. Being short legged, I really appreciate that. I did not love them instantly. Perhaps it is a bit unrealistic to expect them to feel great right away. After 4 or 5 rides they felt more broken in and comfortable. Wish the zippers had tabs or some type of zipper pull, but otherwise they are well made and designed.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from HOLES HOLES AND WAIT DID I MENTION HOLES! awful don't waste your hard earned money on trashy tredsteps that fall apart in two months by riding one horse, but hey I mean perfect fit counts right??

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Leather! I'm glad I read the reviews prior to purchase, because it does take a couple of people to put them on the first time. I have worn them for about a week now, and they are easier to zip. I love the close fit. The zipper and leather are very good quality, and I expect these chaps to last a while.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from They Break Easy!!!! I have had my Tredstep half chaps for a year and in that time two buttons broke and one fell off. In addition, they ripped on the inside of my calf and they stretch out a lot. I do ride a lot of horses, but for the money they should be more durable!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality- Last FOREVER! I was given these half chaps as hand-me-downs and have ridden in them on and off for 6 + YEARS! I can't believe they've lasted this long - I STILL ride in them almost every day and am only now considering buying another pair (just a little frayed around the edges from lack of proper condition on my part!) The zipper has held up with no problems, they fit wonderfully and are super easy to clean/ maintain. I'd recommend them to anybody - stylish and incredibly durable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is my second pair of Treadsteps! I opted to buy a second pair of these half chaps because I was so satisfied with them. I had my last pair for 8 years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORTH THE MONEY! I got these when my Tredstep Xtreme Suedes starting looking a bit rough- I ride several horses several times a week, and the Tredstep Deluxe's keep looking great through over a year of wear and tear. I know they're higher on price point, but if you want half chaps that last AND look good with moderate-to-heavy use, these are the ones you need.A word of advice- you should need to wrestle these on the first time you try them. I used a key ring. Buy a calf size slimmer than you think you measure, because after a month of sweating in them, they WILL stretch a bit and you want to keep them close-fitting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great material! These are overall amazing chaps! They stretch a little and I like everything of mine tight so I got a little smaller size!
    Date published: 2014-11-19
    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.

    Date published: 2014-09-02
    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!
