English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Barnstable
Model: Top Grain English Schooling Chaps
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I purchased these chaps from SmartPak. I added a single trim to the chaps, so the total came out to around $170.

Likes: I love my chaps! They have broken in amazingly well and appear to be completely waterproof. After the second ride they fit me like a second skin just as the company promised. They're very comfortable and relatively cool for riding in 90+ degree weather (although I do wear shorts beneath them). They give me a ton of grip in the saddle and don't restrict movement at all.

Dislikes: This was my first pair of full chaps, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I am short--only 5'3"--but have thighs and calves like a gymnast, which made me worried about fit. I ordered the size that matched my thigh circumference exactly and when the chaps came in I needed someone else to zip them up. They stretched out just fine after a few times in the saddle, however. I also had to wait about four weeks to get them compared to the advertised 2-3 weeks.

Quality: Beautiful, smooth leather and super strong stitching and zippers.

Summary: I'm so happy I chose Barnstable. I was able to get a semi-customized pair of full chaps for my hard-to-fit legs at a great price. When I had concerns about whether or not the chaps would stretch to fit right, I called the company directly and they were very nice to deal with. Even though the chaps had been customized, they said there would be no charge or problem with swapping the chaps out for a different size if I so chose. I'm looking forward to years of service from these things.
