Tradition Leather Chaps is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Failures with HD Chaps This is the second pair of these chaps that I've purchased in the last 8 years. The first pair simply fell apart after 5 years. The newer pair has had all of the snaps replaced a couple of times. I finally went to a fabric store and bought some quality snaps. The stitching has been coming apart at the seams and I've been lucky to get them mended. The final straw came last week following a two week camping trip when the belt buck clasp broke (made from pot metal). I still had another 340 miles to go getting home and temps were in the 30's. I had to fashion a buckle out of a couple of my bungee cord hooks. I'm now looking elsewhere for my next set of chaps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ankle Snaps These are nice, fit well and keeps these bugs from feeling like pellets. The only reason that I give them an average rating is the snaps on the bottom do not stay snapped when riding at highway speeds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but don't fit I used the size chart information to order my fiancé a pair of chaps, unfortunately they don't fit. I have the invoice but the tags on the chaps accidentally got thrown away. Is there any way to exchange these for a larger size?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from May return them I went on one ride and the snaps on the bottom of the legs broke off. Besides that they run big but are comfy. I like the pocket it offers it fits my 5 inch phone with no issues.
