Why did you choose this?
I want to purchase these for my husband - he is 34 waist and 34 length - what size should I get?
Best Answer: Hello - I would go with a size large - I wear size 12/14 jeans and the XL are slightly baggy as I did not want them to be tight and feel constrained in the saddle but I can adjust the waist and they are slightly baggy and still long enough in the saddle so works for me. They are absolutely wonderful for fall/winter rides.
my husband wears a size 34-36 pant. what size should I get him?
Several reviews say these are warm, but I am looking for something I can wear over shorts in the summer instead of wearing full-seat breeches. The website says these are lighter than leather. Would these be too warm for winter? Also, do they have more grip then just riding with pants on (or knee patch breeches) ? Thanks
Best Answer: I live in CT. These would be very hot to wear in the summer. The only chaps that I can think of that might be OK in summer are the synthetic ultra suede show chaps that are made by Hobby Horse. They're quite expensive. As to the grip, I think the oilskin is a bit more grippy than cloth, but the fit is not so snug so you might experience some movement inside them, esp with shorts underneath. They remain great for cold weather riding though.
I ordered the medium size for my husband for Christmas, but he needs a Large.. His problem is he needs a 29 in length..
What do you suggest I do.. can these be altered in length?
Best Answer: There isn't any way to make them longer without adding material. I'm not sure what you would use for material. I think if they are to long, you would have to just leave them to crumple at the bottom. Not sure how you would shorten them as the zipper goes almost to the bottom. Sorry. Hope this helps.
Are these chaps slick or a little sticky in the saddle? Just don't want something that is going to not have any friction when riding. Thanks
Best Answer: Not in my opinion. I love them. I wear them during the cold and wet weather and I love them. The only time I would say they may be a little sticky is right after I treat them with Duck Back. But that doesn't last longer than a few rides. I hope this helps.
