I agree about Mountain Horse. I was actually able to fit (barely) into their regular width (short height though.. sigh). The elastic makes a huge difference, and they're a lot more comfortable to wear than a lot of other brands.

Has anybody got any experience of the Fuller Fillies Gaiters? I am buying some of these next.

I've got the half chaps on the way to me, it is my first foray into the world of fuller fillies.

I live on planet earth. Anything horse related that isn't "Cowboy" is near impossible to find. Stores like Dover, Horseloverz, carry little to nothing for men. Same with local stores they are even worse.

I don't have huge calves, but they are big enough. When I got out my field boots when I bought Missy, there wasn't a chance in you know where I was getting them on. I took them in to the saddle shop and he cut out tabs on the top/inside and put elastic inserts in them.

Well it probably reflects the different shopping habits of the sexes, but I don't actually see Horseloverz 13 pairs of breeches as nothing, and they are available up to a 40" waist as standard, so not to bad.

I just ordered a set of fuller fillies half chaps for my oversize calves. Years of riding a bicycle everywhere and playing hockey built up tons of muscle that I couldn't lose if I tried....a whole 20" around. I should have mine monday here's to hoping they fit.

In the interests of fairness I have to add to this thread.

While I haven't yet actually tried any of the Fuller Filly products, I already know that the half chaps that are on their way to me from the UK is likely to be the only purchase I make from this company.

My experience as a potential customer has not been the best and personally I would struggle to trade with a company who makes me feel that I am in the wrong, I am old fashioned enough to believe that customers are always in the right, and it saddens me to find that my custom does not appear to important.

Your mileage may of course vary, but just saying here.

Not only do I have a problem in the calf size but I have big feet too. :( I wear a size 12 (hopefully) in most boots. Suckssssss.
