My name is Matthew Fenn. I recently purchased a pair of rodeo chaps from you. (The guy with the little legs that needed a good custom fit). I received the chaps a week ago today. A little early from the time I was supposed to get them. Thank you for getting them here on-time, early.
The chaps fit perfect. The quality is outstanding. The craftsmanship really shows. Everything was beyond my expectations. Keep up the great work. I will make certain that anyone I know, who is in the market for a great pair of chaps, must contact you folks.

Why chinks? They are a 3/4 length chap, unlike the batwings and shotguns, which are both full length chaps. They attach to the upper leg with a variety of different closure types like buckle and strap, snap and dee, and so forth. With chinks, your legs are more exposed to the air which allows the best circulation of air. They aren’t as hot as full length chaps in warm weather but still provide an extra level of warmth in colder weather conditions. The chink is the most versatile chap that can worn in Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. They are also the least restrictive to movement of all the chaps but it still provides good upper leg protection. The chink is the most versatile of all chaps and is a must for anyone that loves to ride.
Chink length: They are 32" in total length including 6" fringe.
Size adjustment: The back-belt, front belt, and thigh areas are adjustable.
