Ovation
Elite Ladies' Colored Half Chaps
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets



Manufacturer: Ovation
Model: Elite Ladies' Colored Half Chaps
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I ordered these half chaps off State Line Tack for $40.00 two to three months ago. I wanted to buy half chaps to wear while riding at a barn I volunteer at, instead of my rubber boots (which are very hot so i didn't want to ride in those anymore). I had a lot of problems with other half chaps. One I ordered just fit me just really strange (it might have just been THOSE half chaps because they were Ariat), so we called SLT to see if they had any suggestions and they suggested these half chaps because the measurements fit perfect, needed for the height.

Likes: I like these because they aren't too tall (I have short calves) and they are very stretchy when you put them on so they will fit a wider variety of pants, they fit over both my jeans or my breeches nicely.

Dislikes: They can be kind of hard to put on (but not impossible because they stretch). I also don't really like the material they are made out of, but since they are washable that's what they are. I have not tried washing them yet. The top part of the zipper came unstitched when I was putting them on just after 2 or 3 rides which i was disappointed, but it was easy to fix. I am also very careful not to unstitch the other one or break that one again when I'm putting them on.

Quality: They are OK.. they have not stretched out much if any and the zipper is the only thing that has broken. I did not expect a whole lot out of these being only $40.00. I think its kind of strange how on the bottom elastic part, there is a fabric piece, like they used it to hold two ends of the elastic together which I thought seemed like it wouldn't last a real long time.

Summary: I probably wouldn't buy them again. I only bought them because I desperately wanted half chaps and I just could not find any that fit (I tried on.. countless pairs of half chaps) so i got these. I don't really expect to be able to use these for a lot over a year, only riding once a week.
