    If you just want something to ride in then half chaps are great.

    I have a pair of These. They are wearing well. Can not beat the price either.

    No, they are not fancy and you for sure could not show in them. But very functional. Sorry, they do have a zipper.
    I can vouch for those as well. While they do not fit me correctly, they do hold up very well. My mom has had hers for a couple years now and the only thing that's happened is that the snaps on the side have come off.

    I was totally shocked when I got mine. For the price they are really nice. Very comfy and heck, you can wash them.

    Thank you, All! I'll try both Dublin and Ariat next time I go to Dover.

    P.S. I'm not going to show at least till next summer, so chaps is a cheaper alternative at the moment.

    I love my half chaps, its all I ride in, I save my tall boots for shows.

    So I guess it depends upon your budget and if you show. I think things are changing a bit, but at most non-schooling type shows half chaps are "allowed" but frowned on. If you plan to show and can only afford one or the other, I would go with tall boots, if you don't plan to show go with the half chaps, or if you can afford both.

    OK... I went to Dover yesterday and tried chaps they have down there. The weird thing L seems to be too loose, M I can't zip (too small). So didn't get any....

    Uh-oh, were they elastic at all, or were they the kind that is just leather wrapped around your calf? :p

    Try for the half suede half leather ones....they seem to have a bit more "give" to them then just a pair of leather ones.

    I love(d) my half chaps, but the zip broke on them yesterday as I did them up. They had lasted me ages though, but out of choice im not sure I would get another pair with zips. I just think you need to shop around, they vary so much in length and size. I have got quite long stick-like legs so I had a while of shopping around until I found ones that fit me perfectly, just keep looking!

    I'd think just a leather wrapped around (suede kinda leather). Felt very stiff too. May be my boots were too big so that's why it didn't fit. I may go to the different store to try what they have.
