    Tredstep Pro G2 Half Chap is rated 3.7105 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love the style and fit, but hate the zipper I really like the style and fit of these chaps.  I don't care for chaps with the panel over the top of the foot, and these are the only ones I've ever found without that.  The quality of the leather is fine, and there's a great selection of calf sizes and heights.But, I've worn these chaps *maybe* 10 times and every single time, the zippers unzip while I'm riding.  And today, while I was putting my chaps on, at the halfway point on my left leg, the zipper stuck and I was unable to get it up or down.  I had to vetwrap the top of the chap so I could go have my lesson.  I had to rip the zipper open in order to get the chap off.   I plan to return these chaps to SmartPak and find another option.  Too bad, because I really would have liked these if the zipper hadn't been awful.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for the serious rider I am HARD on my half chaps. I ride between 3-10 horses a day, 5 days a week. I've always been a fan of Tredstep because their 15/17s fit me like custom - Ariats are too big in the ankle, other brands droop, etc.My original chaps failed with holes in the calves in March, so I went with the new G2s expecting high-quality tall boot type feel and finish.The leather ended up feeling stiff, sort of cheap, and looked dull. The right snap broke on my FIRST ride. I actually contacted Smartpak and they told me that had been a problem; they offered to resolve it, but I opted to deal.By August, I had gaping holes in both calves. Yes, I ride a lot but I'm not particularly hard on them otherwise.By November, they were threadbare, the zippers were broken, the elastic had pulled away from the leather, and the holes had turned into huge openings running the entire lengths of my calves.So, I spent a pretty penny on a pair of half chaps that stayed in good condition for 5 months. Seeing that this was the second pair to experience the exact same failures in a ridiculously short period of time, I won't be buying Tredsteps again.My Tredstep Giotto paddock boots lasted me 7 months (which included THREE zipper repairs). The long-term quality of their products is terrible.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Is there a Zero Stars Option? I am updating my prior review of these half chaps. When I got them, they fit nicely and had an elegant look and feel. I had a pair of Tredstep Deluxe half chaps that lasted for 4 years or so.I've had these since February. So, 8 months? I am not a trainer doing multiple rides a day. I ride one horse on them, and not even 7 days a week. The back panels began tearing probably within the first 3-4 months. I was disappointed, but figured that as long as they still fitted, they'd be fine. Over the past 2 months now, the back panels have completely shredded. I don't know what designer decided to put elastic with a flimsy layer of leather close to where the calf contacts the saddle, but it was extremely ill-advised.I can live with holes in my chaps and even the untidy appearance that brings. But now, due to the shredded back panel, the chaps don't even fit anymore. The width has increased substantially, causing my breeches to rub my calves now.I am EXTREMELY disappointed in these chaps. I would think that for this price point they would last at least a year. I will never buy or recommend a Tredstep product again. And I intend to contact Smartpak and Tredstep about taking back these awful half chaps.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Sure About These Have only had these half chaps for a few weeks, but based on the feel of the leather and the zipper, I don't expect them to last very long. They feel particularly cheap, which was disappointing based on the cost. My guess is the zipper will break first. I would not purchase these again, even though nothing has happened...yet.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have to admit, I'm a bit shocked by all these glowing reviews.The only thing in the plus column for these is that I love the fit and style. (I wear a 15 calf, 19 height, which isn't that easy to find, and these fit my calves and ankles perfectly).But the quality of the leather is terrible. It seems cheap and dry with an unattractive wrinkly texture (I'm not describing that well) and that's with multiple conditioning attempts.And the stitching and stretch panel are both both fraying along the bottom - more with each wear, and I would estimate that I've only worn these only about 20 times total so far.If these were half the price, then maybe, but at this price I expect a little more.My riding buddy is having the exact same experience (and we've both had Tredsteps in the past that we loved and wore well). Hers have the same unnattractive texture and are wearing just as poorly and in the same places.But I did buy these (as did she) last summer (say June 2012). Maybe we got ours from a bad batch?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant The ProG2 provides a nice slim line, tall boot like look for an elegant appearance. I had to try several different half chaps to get the right fit (too baggy around my ankles) and I ended up sizing down an inch in the calf from what I measured for this pair. Measured 13/17, got 12/17. I am VERY happy that I did. At first, I thought I'd never be able to zip it all the way up my slightly larger left leg :) but, I did and the ankle fits so much better. I wore them around the house for awhile and worked to zip/unzip them a few times before riding in them. They were wonderful to ride in. Seem very high quality, easy to clean, but I can't speak to their durability, yet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Chaps These are beautiful chaps. I have a very wide calf and I measure right at 16". I ordered a size 16 calf and unfortunately, they are so tight, I am afraid that I am going to break the zipper. I thought that there was going to be a bit more stretch. That being said, I have had problems finding a good fit with most boots as well. I hope that maybe they will stretch a little more with regular wear. They are just gorgeous chaps and with sleek paddock boots, it looks like you are wearing a full tall boot! They have a great cut that just hugs the whole leg.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Investment I bought these half chaps because I was concerned about trashing my good field boots. However, I need something that mimics my good boots when I take lessons, so that the feel is consistent. These are excellent quality, and feel just like a full boot. They appear to be durable, and I look forward to many years with this product. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Nice Semi Custom Half Chaps Got these for my 11 year old. Treadstep offered the only option in her measurements (tall with very thin calf). It is a quality product. They look really sharp with her black paddock boots. There was a small break in period where she was wearing them without zipping up to the top. Beware, the leather scratches easily. I still like the leather of my Ariat Covington's better. Overall, we are very happy with our purchase. Picture soon to come.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from took a chance and I'm glad i did I wrote a review on these the other week where i was unsure of them (been an ariat girl for YEARS). but after riding in them a few times i deiced i liked them. the only real issue i have with them is the elastic that goes under the boot is a bit big witch makes the ankle a little "loose" however i found that my spur strap helps to keep it from being too bad and i do plan on taking them to a cobbler to have the elastic shortened. I do really like the look of them and I also like that they have a similar feel to tall boots while in the saddle. they are by far the best fitting chaps i have been able to find with out going custom. I'm a 13" calf 16" hight and i find these are pretty true to size. I just might have been converted from ariat ;)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these chaps I found these chaps fit perfectly (I measured 13 1/2" on my calf and I rounded up to 14" and a 16 1/2" on the height and I, again, rounded up to a 17") and they look really great. I haven't had them long so I can't attest to their durability but the leather is high quality and I anticipate them wearing well in the future. I had no issues breaking them in. They look great on the leg and are not bulky around the ankle like many chaps. I would recommend these to anyone looking for an attractive half chap that fits well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I REALLLLY wanted to like these i did...but... I Just got these as a Birthday gift and I was so excited about them. They look great and I love all the sizes they come in (makes it much easier to find a pair to fit me). But the ankle area is almost what id call baggy/wide and the elastic that goes under the foot is too long witch makes the chap "balloon" out around my boot when i walk or push my heel down (in riding position). Also they are very stiff. I really was hoping these would work because as the temperature gets warmer this spring I'm getting tired of wearing my winter riding boots every day (my old chaps are broken)...back to the drawing board i guess... :(

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Half Chap These half chaps are great so far. I have only had them for about 3 weeks but they have a nice look to them and didn't take much to break in. The only negative about them in my opinion is the small zipper and zipper pull, although larger zipper would detract from the sleek look of the chap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely half chaps! Tried these vs. the TS Deluxe ones (which I had for the past 5 or so years). Both are very nice. These were a bit more aerodynamic (as hubby put it) and really offer a more tidy look. Also, I am able to put my spurs on over them without having to adjust the straps too much. Can't speak to durability yet as I've just had them a week or so.I will say, if you get these half chaps -- use some sticky spray the first few times you ride in them! I did not and fell right off when my 4 yo mare spooked and dropped her shoulder. I usually stay glued on when she does that, but these just weren't quite as grippy right out of the box as the Deluxe ones are (or as my 5 yo Deluxe ones are).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst treadstep product I have ever seen Noticed immediately that the leather was cheap and not the normal Treadstep quality that I have become used to over the last 15 years. I have exclusively worn Treadstep half chaps and found them to be a good value product so ordering another pair was a no brainer. Wrong. The sizing ran large around the ankle and they were stiff as boards. I then compared the old Treadsteps (same product) to the new ones side by side and found them wanting in many respects including inferior stiching, but most glaringly the poor quality of leather that was used for the new pair. I highly doubt they are produced in Ireland anymore despite the labeling and am dissapointed to be let down after depending on Treadstep to deliver a quality product after all these years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice I was a bit weary when I bought these, because I had a pair of (cheap) Tredstep half chaps that fell apart within months and made me nervous about the brand, and previous reviews said they ran small. First off, I measured my leg, and when I got these, they fit perfectly. I ride every day, and these have held up fantastically. A side note: the ribbed leather on the back has been worn smooth, so it looks like the back on the Tredstep Donatello Field boots, but this has not affected their use in any way. These help me keep me leg on, and they look great doing it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very dissapointed I was really hoping for a top quality half chap that I could show in now and then. This was not it. It looked really sloppy and the leather felt cheap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loyal tredstep customer I am a loyal tredstep customer and finally had to buy a new pair of half chaps after mine were shredded from use. The tredstep chaps that zip up the back seemed to have mixed reviews but these chaps are so easy to zip after you get used to it and require no break in/stretch out time. They fit slightly big if you expect to have super tight half chaps that stretch over time. These fit perfectly right out of the box. They are so gorgeous with my tredstep paddock boots that I almost feel guilty wearing them every day. Everybody at my barn says they look like nice quality tall boots when I ride. Could not be happier with the price, quality and they seem to be made just as well as the tredstep deluxe that I always buy. Very happy with these!!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Quality In just 3 rides, these chaps fell apart: 1) the top emblem along the spanish topline came off 2) the stitching on the inner calf started coming undone 3) the color wore off in the inner leg...also they don't conform to the leg, very boxy feeling and the leather is stiff and poor quality even after multiple oilings. I'm usually not one to give bad reviews but wow, these chaps are awful. I heard very good things about tredstep boots but these chaps are not their best product.
    Date published: 2012-10-18
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good with a Couple of Exceptions It's a good product. The size runs small, so after you measure your calf, add an inch. The other thing is that the hardware, snaps, are really hard to do and undo. Also, I hate the ribbed leather, which does nothing but collect and hold dirt. It's a good quality of leather and lasts a long time, and Treadstep is the only chap maker I've found that offers a real variety of sizes. I just purchased a new pair of Tredsteps with no ribbed leather and a good snap, and I'm sure I'll like these much better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Perfect!! I cannot say how much I LOVE these half chaps! I am extreamly tall (I have a 36" inseam) and so it's almost impossible for me to find boots or half chaps that aren't custom that will even come close to fitting me. When I read that these are too tall for a lot of people, I knew they were for me. They fit PERFECTLY!! And I can't tell you how often I have been complimented on them. I'm also a trainer and do nothing but work and ride and so far they have held up without any trouble. They've broken in to fit like a glove around my calf (my amazing fiance stretched them a little when I first got them with coke bottles!) and they don't restrict me in the least when I ride.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had these for 2 weeks- am obsessed! I ordered these half chaps about 2 weeks ago to replace the pair of tall boots I usually ride in to school. I prefer tall boots but didn't want to pay the tall boot price (college student) but these are as close as you can get. They look so classy on and fit well. The back provides a good bit of stretch and it broke in really quickly. They seem very hardy, though its probably too soon to say for sure. Highly recommend so far, though!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase! I bought these half chaps to replace my custom chaps when they broke. Love the sizing options for my hard to fit legs, plus the chaps are very well made and look fantastic on. If you're in between sizes, size down-they do stretch. Took me a few days to get them on without a struggle but now they fit perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Purchase I ordered a 1/2" size smaller than i measured although I believe it says order up. I would order a little tighter than you want because in a week of riding a few a day they have stretched out to fit my calf nicely.I have paired them with the Ariat boots which have too high of a heal for the elastic. Im sure with Treadstep boots they would fit better. They just look a little short.All and all great chaps for the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome half chaps Purchased these to replace my old suede half chaps and as a stop-gap until I get a pair of tall boots. The fit is wonderful (surprisingly hard to find half chaps that fit guys well) and the look is streamlined and sharp. I expect to use these for a long time.
    Date published: 2012-07-23
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Half-Chaps After the Deluxe half chap button tore, I was advised by a representative to try these. So far I have been very happy. They are very stiff and slippery on my saddle as they have not fully broken in yet (~3 weeks of use), but they are of very high quality and once they have broken in I think those two issues will resolve. The fits is really good too, true to size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tall Boot Look in a Half Chap This is my second pair and I love them! It feels like they have improved the fit and leather even more than my first pair and the break in is non-existent. Out of the box and rode in them the same day. I love that they give a tall boot look, but with the comfort of a half chap. Get tons of compliments on them too. I have found they run true to size and the stretch panel in the back does have great give so keep that in mind.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicest half chap on the market This is my second pair of Treadstep half chaps. They fit great and are tall enough for my long leg. Love that they are tapered at the ankle and have a high topline. If your calf measurement is between sizes I would recommend going with the smaller size....the stretch panels give a bit after riding and break in.
    Date published: 2012-06-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous look for 1/2 chap! These look amazing partnered up with my Giotto paddock boots by Tredstep! Size was very true to my measurement in calf, my first order was too tall in height (I was in between and should have ordered down not up), but you know that's not a prob w/ Smartpak. Hope they wear as well as they look and as well as the paddock boots have!!
