Our basic batwing chaps are a full length chap for both work and for pleasure riding. B Bar B was established in 1961. We’ve been making chaps now for more than 50 years. All chaps are made at our facility in Blackfoot, Idaho. They are Proudly made in the USA!
We make all of our batwing chaps with quality leather and quality workmanship. They are made with our own design which has a clean look and a great fit. We buy our leather from the best tanneries at the most competitive prices, helping to make our quality and price combination is hard to match. You can be assured that when you buy chaps from B Bar B that finding a better value will be a time consuming task.
In-stock sizes: Our basic batwings are in-stock and ready to ship in sizes Jr, xsmall, small, medium, large, and xlarge. Other sizes may be custom ordered.
Why batwing chaps? They are a full length pleasure or work chap. It is normally secured to the upper leg and is an "open" design which allows air circulation on the back side of the chaps. The batwing offers full length protection from trees, brush, and other elements. It is less restrictive than the shotgun chap but provides full length protection unlike the chink.
Size adjustment: The backbelt is laced on in v-braid fashion and can be adjusted 2" larger. The backbelt can be adjusted smaller if extra holes are punched. The front belt is a buckle and strap that is also adjustable more than 2". The thigh size is also adjustable plus or minus 2 inches.
Leg closure: Our stock batwings include buckle and strap leg closures and we also have snap and dee leg closures in our inventory. You may select this option when ordering.
Available leather: Our inventory of chaps is made with a variety of "earthtone" colored leathers in the 4.5 to 6 ounce weight range. The earthtone leathers will vary in color and texture and will range from firmer to softer leather and oil-tan and non-oil tan. The chaps that are in-stock may be made from any range of the earthtone leathers that we have available at the time. The colors may not be the same exact leather or color as the batwings shown in the photos. We will list several leather preferences for you to request when ordering your chaps. If you make requests for color, weight, texture, and etc., we will try to accommodate your request but we may be limited by our current inventory of leathers.
Request photos: Photos of the exact chaps that are in-stock may be requested. Email or phone us with your leather preferences and we will email photos of the chaps in our inventory that most closely match your request. That way, you can see exactly what is available. We normally send them within a few minutes of your call if it is during normal business hours.
Order information: When you are looking at the details for the chaps, please review all the available photos. You will see that there is much helpful information available in the photos. There is a photo showing typical earthtone colors, a photo showing the exact dimensions, and a photo showing you how to measure so that you may select the proper size.
