The Latest Chaps from Eagle Leather
If you want more protection for your legs, chaps might just be the way to go. Pronounced “shaps,” they are crotchless and seatless, designed to be worn over your jeans or other pants. If you look on the Eagle Leather website you’ll find several categories of chaps: braided, jean-style, light weight, plain, short, tall, textile, and thermal.
Braided chaps have braided leather trim, as seen here on these new Eagle Leather-brand chaps. Black Lasso Braided Chaps are unisex and have two jean-style pockets in the front. The legs have four multi-length snaps. A mesh lining helps keep you comfortable and a buffer keeps the liner from catching in the zippers.
Jean-style chaps are exemplified by another new item in the Eagle Leather brand, the Men’s Nomad Chaps with Zip-out Liner, shown here. They’re unisex and made of milled cowhide. They have two jean-style front pockets, the zipper buffer, four multi-length leg snaps, and high-quality mesh lining. Lacing in the back lets you adjust the fit to perfection.
If you want light-weight chaps, check out these slash-pocket chaps for men. The pockets are dual-sided and zippered and are trimmed. The chaps also feature a soft mesh liner.
Short chaps, like the ones shown here, are knee high. These Ladies’ Knee-High Half Chaps have a zipper opening. Tall chaps are made for tall folks. Shown here are Tall Patriot Chaps in Soft Cow, an Eagle Leather-brand product.
Chaps are also available in fabric. These Men’s Textile Chaps have big zippers on the side vents for cool riding. Further temperature control comes from the snap-out thermal liner, which has mesh under it. There are two zippered pockets in the front. Reflective piping and stripes make night-riding safer. Both the thighs and the back stretch for great fit.
Thermal chaps have removable linings. For example, these chaps in distressed brown cowhide have a mesh liner for summer riding and a fully removable, snap-out thermal lining that will help you keep warm in cold weather. There are storage panels on the thighs, which also have a stretch panel for good fit.
Whatever your needs, Eagle Leather is sure to carry your next set of riding chaps!
