Grand Prix
Full Grain Leather Half Chaps
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Manufacturer: Grand Prix
Model: Full Grain Leather Half Chaps
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I purchased my first pair of these about 10 years ago for about 150 from my local WA tack store. I bought a second pair 4 years ago for a little over 200 after shopping around on line for the best deal.

Likes: I love the full grain leather because it's long wearing and stays clean looking. After you clean them a few times, they are just as "grippy" as suede, but don't get the dirty, faded, furry look that suede half chaps get after hard use. I have short legs, and these come in a variety of width/height combinations, so I find that these fit like custom half chaps. When my first pair started to get visibly worn (still fit and worked fine, just a little sad looking) after 6 years of hard use (riding 3-4 horses/day) I knew I could never own another brand. So, I bought another pair and found that the quality was as good as my initial set. I also love that these zip top to bottom, which makes getting in/out of them SO much easier.

Dislikes: Nothing I don't like. They are great! The look fantastic, fit perfectly, and last through a lot of hard use.

Quality: The leather is high quality, and soft/supple right out of the package. They feel custom and broken in from the very first ride. Zippers last very well, and all the stitching stays tight through a lot of use.

Summary: These are THE best schooling chaps out there. They look sharp, fit great, and last really well. I anticipate another 6 years of use, at least, with this pair, and if I ever find myself needing new half chaps, I'll ONLY buy another pair of Grand Prixs!
