Riding Pants & Chaps
There’s something about a well-fitting pair of chaps or riding pants that gives any rider an extra measure of swagger. Leather chaps and overpants provide outstanding protection against wind, debris, and abrasion, making them a smart choice as well as a stylish one.
Chap sizes are determined mainly by the circumference around the thickest part of the thigh. Chaps fit best over snug-fitting jeans. For the best fit, chaps should also fit somewhat snug: not loose or baggy, but still comfortable, allowing easy movement. Motorcycle chaps should be long enough to just reach the boot heel when sitting.
