River Road Vintage Leather Chaps
I bought the XL because I thought the 2X would be too big. I used to sell and make leather products and this would fall into the average category. The leather is half the thickness of my old chaps and that you can tell immediately. First thing I did after I found they would fit was to put a solid leather extension in where the lace normally goes. Much better now. 2nd, I noticed it is easier to zip up the legs, snap them, pull them up and then buckle the belt. The belt system is really cheezy and I'm trying to decide what to do about it. One belt loop is too close and the other is too far away. Eventually I'll figure out a way to modify it. Did not have to cut off any length at all with my 31" inseam as they are perfect when sitting down on the bike. The liner does help.

Great product and great fit
Really nice chaps and great price and fit. The reason for the poor airflow rating is that they block the air just as they should.

Cool Old School Look
I've been wearing my chaps for a month now and they are fantastic ! Great fit due to the sizing chart provided. Great over all comfort for those long rides. They complete the whole riding experience.

Good fit and style.
These chaps are really nice. They fit well and stay where they're supposed to. The belt is a little wimpy and could use a second set of grommets and pins. Being chaps, they block access to your front jeans pockets, but no big deal.
The leather is soft, but heavy enough to give me confidence that I may still have some skin left if I go for a slide.
Air flow is non-existent because, leather. They are cut a little long but any leather shop should be able to hem them if needed.
I'm 6' with a 33 inch inseam and they land on the top of my boots at the front, 1/2 inch from the ground at the back.
Overall good value, definitely recommend them.

Good value for price.
I am very happy with the chaps. My only suggestion would be to make the zippers easier to start. This is my first pair of chaps so maybe all zippers are a challange to start.

Awesome set of (less-expensive) leather chaps
Great set of chaps; I only marked "air flow" down because I don't necessarily want air flow through my chaps (I only wear them on longer, colder rides) and "poor" air flow is PERFECT for that purpose. Obviously there's still enough air moving to vent the chaps on longer days, but I'm only wearing them in the winter right now. Highly recommended; sizing chart works well, although I think they run just a tad small. Length was perfect without any cutting, and the quality of leather is top notch.

Good looking, well built chaps.
I've got just under 300 miles riding with these chaps and they seem to deliver as advertised. They fit well and seem well constructed. I like the black color. I'm just under 5' 11, 32 in. inseam, and weigh about 215. The thigh measurement chart seems spot on.....the medium fits perfect, inseam length covers my jeans when on the bike and is perfect off the bike as well.
I don't use the small pocket for anything.
