Overall: ***** (5 out of 5)
It will take a lot of convincing to get me into a different pair of half chaps after I bought my tredsteps in late spring 2012. The quality of leather and craftsmanship is excellent, and comparing them side by side (and leg to leg) to the grand prix half chaps, the tredsteps shine (not literally... which is nice). I've put mine through a lot in the last 6 months, and they are holding up very well, and I expect they will continue to do so for quite some time. In fact I had a trainer friend of mine come in last week wearing hers that were several years old, and they looked almost brand new. If you want a great pair of chaps, that look elegant, and fit like a glove, these are the way to go! They run about $150.00, and come in black or brown.
