Chaps were an important innovation, allowing the cowboys to protect their pants and boots when riding through brush, or when a rope slammed against their leg from a misbehaving steer at the other end. Chaps will also keep your legs warm and help keep you dry on foul weather days.

Open Range Leather Chaps - a traditional step-in shotgun chap design from the last best westOur Leather Master has been working with leather, hide and fur for more than 30 years, and over his career has made close to a thousand pairs of chaps. For truly authentic, Handmade Leather Chaps and leather accessories you've come to the right place!
The style of our Open Range Handmade Leather Chaps, with the 2 front pockets, was likely the most common design worn by working cowboys of the 19th century, and up to modern times. The step in design has a leather gusset down the back of the leg that you step through to put the chaps on. Enter your chap measurements in the appropriate boxes.
We started with the style of chaps worn by Clarke Gable in The Tall Men(1955) and worked our magic on them. Our Custom Handmade Leather Chaps have a zipper closure and are a shotgun, or stove pipe, design with fringe.
The heavy leather belt in a deep rich brown, beautifully compliments the top quality pale sand color of the rough out leather that the chaps are made from.
