Purchase: I went looking for a pair of durable suede half chaps at my local tack store. I am short, and wearing my tall boots is uncomfortable when I don't need to. I bought these half chaps, made of a synthetic material, for 49 dollars instead.
Likes: I love the material. I got these instead of the suede, because they won't rub off on to my saddle. also, they are smoother and look classier, even though they are way cheaper than smooth leather half chaps. They also are short enough for me, I wasn't able to find many brands that didn't go above my knee.
Dislikes: The velcro is cheap. I liked the security and clean line of the zipper in other half chaps. It is much more noticable than a zipper too.
Quality: The chap is cut well, and has a slight drop heel for a cleaner line. I would just like to see a zipper in there, and the top velcro instead of the full velcro.
Summary: I would recommend these chaps, especially to the shorter equestrians, because of their durability, comfort, and cut. However, suede might be better in some circumstances.
