I was actually seriously considering that. I've had disappointments in Greenhawk products before, and I swear if I pay $170 for chaps that fall apart in six months, smoking won't matter because I'll have gone to jail for burning down the store.

I'm going to look around and see what we have around here by way of leather workers.

I know a really really good saddle and chap maker here locally and I know that he ships all over. He would just tell you what measurements he needs and you would tell him what type of tooling and hardware you want and then wait several weeks. His name is Clay Nicholas. Clay Nicholas Saddlery

Good job! Quitting was actually easy for me. I had been a smoker for 14 years, a pack to a pack and a half a day. I was going in for a tummy tuck (I had lost 100lbs) and the surgeon said that, for it to heal quickly and well, I had to stop smoking. AND, if she thought I was still smoking when she was going to do the surgery, she would refuse. I waited so long and worked so hard to get to that point, that I had a quit date lined up and everything. However, FATE stepped in. I was riding, got thrown, and ended up with a broken right arm. My left arm is just useless, and I couldn't light or smoke using it, so I ended up quitting that day!
I did have the surgery, and even the doc was suprised at how quickly I healed. I noticed how much TIME I had in each day (smoking 20-30 cigs a day at 5 -7 mins. Per...) now that I wasn't running outside every hour or so to puff. The money thing is spot on.
One suggestion (and it helped with my hubby when he quit, right after we met!) is this: Once you quit, think of yourself as a non-smoker, not just someone trying to quit. When you get an urge to smoke, laugh and tell yourself "I don't smoke!" When you get the urge to buy cigs, laugh and ask yourself "Why would I do that? I don't smoke!" You are now a non smoker. Act like it. Leave the "try" part in the dust. No excuses, no "well, just this one..."
It IS easy..,.You just gotta get through the first three days...it will get easier and easier.

I'm trying to get my SO to quit smoking, so I'm having him workout first. Maybe when we start running and he realizes how hard it is, it will be easier for him to do it. Hehe <3

Getting custom chaps would be pretty darn cool too! <3 Do that do that!

I'm not sure if they'll ship to Manitoba, but I've heard that his chaps are really nice. They start at $350, but they'll probably be 10 times better than the Greenhawk ones. I've seen them in person because I'm not too far away from them and they seem to be made well.

Edit: Oh it seems like they can ship them.
You just have to make your own measurements.
