I'm looking to get a new pair of half chaps. The zipper on my current pair keeps coming undone from the top, so I want to put a new pair on my x-mas list and want to upgrade a little while I'm at it. I'm looking for something good and high quality, but less than $200 (preferably below $150).
I sort of like the look of these, but recommendations on anything else you like would be awesome:
Grand Prix Suede Leather Half Chaps - Dover Saddlery.
Ariat Concord Half Chaps - Dover Saddlery.
Ariat Close Contact Half Chaps - Dover Saddlery.
Also, I'd love to hear people's preferences on suede vs. smooth leather half chaps. During the summer, I often wear them over my bare legs because it is so hot here in Florida, which is why I'm thinking suede might be a little better...
Thanks for any advice.
