If you are wondering which leather to buy, we have a few questions for you to ask yourself.
- Where do you live? What is the weather like typically? Deer is best for the Southern weather's cold days.
- How do you ride? Deer is soft and flexible, and while it is durable, if you ride 100s of miles with frequency elk hide is probably more suitable for you.
- What do you want from your leathers? Some people like the bison chaps because they are bison. There is nothing wrong with that. You need to purchase what you feel suits your lifestyle best!
If you want a product that wears like iron and feels soft and comfortable, look no further! Our Bison chaps are perfect for the hardcore rider who likes feeling comfortable and protected.
Our buffalo chaps are heavyweight with a lot of body that requires breaking in. This is the product for the hardcore rider, a person who will wear leather regardless of temp. Like the guy sleeping in the ditch next to his bike 20 years ago.

How Should They Fit
Waist: the side of the chaps should center over the hip, too far forward the front sides will gap, and too far back you can't get them zipped easily.
Thigh: the leather should be snug so that your hand can barely slip into your inner thigh, where you can see your finger and knuckle outlines. You will find anyone who has worn chaps a lot will buy them extra snug. (If you have trouble flexing due to stiffness or an over-ample belly, you will want a bit looser in the thigh.)
Length: we recommend they go to the ground with your boots on, when you sit on the bike they will ride up some but should still cover the ankle of your boot. Too long, and you'll walk on and drag them, too short is hard as well because it's difficult to extend them. Chaps are not generally hemmed, but the seams should be backstitched to prevent them from coming undone.
