    Ariat® Close Contour Half Chap is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 58.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look like tall boots These chaps are beautiful. Very nice leather and provide a clean look with the zipper up the back rather than on the side. The measurements are true to size. The S measures 14.5" and the M measures 15.5" at the widest part of the calf. I struggled to get the zipper engaged at the bottom but once it is seated correctly it zips up smoothly. Zipper is very sturdy. I zipped them on every day for a week in my house before deciding to keep them. Happily, they went on much easier when I took them to the barn for my first ride. Very comfortable to ride in and provided good grip. I am glad that I worked my way through the initial struggle to start the zipper.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Half Chaps I bought these half chaps to replace my Tredstep half chaps. I love Ariat paddock boots and have been wearing them forever, but I found Tredstep sizing with half chaps works best for my fit (I wear a 16/16 in Tredstep half chaps). However, I have recently gone through two pairs of Tredsteps within a year because I had issues with their button snaps pulling through and breaking. I finally decided to switch to Ariat, but I was nervous with the half chaps being 17.5 height. I first bought the MS in these (I could not get the zippers to touch) so I then bought the LS and they fit perfectly, hitting the back of my knee a bit before breaking them in. They look GREAT. They definitely took a week or two to drop and stop poking me behind the knee, but for the durability and look of these it is worth it. Easy to clean and I love the fitted support. I have small ankles and big calves and I find they aren't too big in the ankle either.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from too small Way smaller around than advertised and very little stretch in the elastic gusset.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst half chaps I've ever bought These are great chaps... until they stretch, twist and scratch the heck out of your saddle flaps. DO NOT recommend. I wish they weren't so used so I could return. A complete waste of money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter loves these chaps! My eleven year-old daughter was very particular about the chaps she wanted after getting the Ariat boots she had been asking for. She only wanted chaps with a back zipper, and we had to order a few different pairs until she found exactly what she was looking for. She really loves these, and has much less of a problem zipping them up herself as I expected she would. On another note, I found Smartpak after six years of buying equestrian apparel (and occasional treats) through another company, that I was not very happy with. I love the excellent service I receive from Smartpak, and we will be loyal customers from now on!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality! I wanted to find a pair of professional looking half chaps that I could use for lessons. I am so happy I bought these, because they fit very well and are made of good quality leather. Overall, a great product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great half-chaps! My previous half-chaps were Ariat Breeze's, which I loved except that they had a velcro tab at the bottom instead of a snap, and that they didn't work well with spurs. After trying multiple different brands and other Ariat styles, I settled on these for replacements, and boy am I glad that I did. They have more of a boot look to them, which I love. And once broken in they are every bit as comfortable as the Breeze's. They are made of a thicker leather, so look classier in my opinion, and I think they will be more durable. Only reason for not giving 5 stars is that even the shortest version is a bit too long for me and my very short calves. I do like that the zipper zips from the bottom up, that way if I need to do a deep squat for some reason, I can unzip the top a little to keep it from digging into the back of my knee. Like all Ariat products that I have tried, both the quality and style are top notch!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything I Wanted!! I bought these about a month ago after agonizing over many other options. Even though I’m only schooling I wanted to up my appearance and have the tall boot look. My leg measurements were on the line between two sizes - and I discussed multiple options with customer service - they were GREAT! ( I called them a lot !) My takeaway- yes, these fit really tight, like almost cutting off circulation tight- but if you can zip them all but the last 1/2 inch you’ll be happy with the fit when then stretch. I wore them around the house for a least a week before riding in them! I can’t speak about durability but I do know the support has helped my lower leg and I just feel better. Like my other ariat products these seem well made and fit well over my Heritage lace paddock boots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Chaps I have not used them yet, but by just trying them on, I think I'll like them. Out of the package, they seem super nice! I was between a medium-short and a large-short, and ended up sizing up... glad I did! They zipped up snugly but not too tight! No complaints here! Can't wait to try them out!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great chaps After waiting longer than the normal time for shipping I received the half chaps and they were worth the wait. Like other reviewers said, they are true to size and at first seem too tight but after a couple of rides they break in and fit just right and offer great support.
