You must measure your calf width over the type of pant you will ride in. A thicker or a thinner pant will change the way the half chap fits your calf. Try your half chaps on with the paddock boots you will ride in to ensure the chaps fit over them and are tall enough to accommodate the boots.
How do you measure for half chaps?
- CALF: Measure the widest part of the calf.
- LENGTH: Measure from top of calf to ankle bone (inside leg)
- ADD ON: 6cm for adults. This is the length to use in th sizing table below.

What is the difference between chaps and gaiters?
Gaiters and half chaps are both alternatives to long boots. They slip over short boots and wrap around a rider’s lower leg to provide a bit of extra stick (and protection). In basic terms, chaps are your kick-around leg wraps while gaiters give a more polished appearance.
How do you know what size chaps to get?
