Buying guide for chaps

Riders who are looking for an alternative to the classic riding boots will sooner or later load at the chapslettes. Before buying, riders should take a detailed look at the differences between real leather models and artificial fiber models. If the riders take part in official tournaments from time to time, they must buy chapsettes made of genuine leather. In addition, make sure that the look of the chaps equals one-piece riding boots. The models of artificial fibers are not officially allowed and may not be worn at the tournaments. If the buyers are exclusively recreational riders, then they can buy both natural leather chaps and synthetic fiber shoes. When buying, the look, the finish, the color and the comfort play key roles.

Genuine Leather Chapsettes look higher quality and cost significantly more money than synthetic fiber boots. In addition, the models are associated with a greater care expense. Synthetic fiber chapsettes can be cleaned without a special brush or shoe polish and will not get dirty quickly. In terms of quality, an additional fixation, which some models have, is advantageous. The fixation consists of bottom and top attached snaps or alternatively a velcro. This is more susceptible to dirt in direct comparison to the buttons.
