Rod's top quality chaps are now available with a lower rise to fit the new styles of low rise pants. They still have single concho styling as well as the same great fit. Low rise chaps will fit about 1¾" - 2" lower than standard chaps. Available in Black only. Lower rise chaps also are a great fit for men. Made in the USA.

I was surprised at the quality for the price; very heavy suede which was nice. I did have to return them because they were defective and didn't come with a back concho to hold them up, nor was there a slit/hole where I could have put my own if I had to. The 24" upper thigh on the Medium size is EXACTLY TRUE. They zipped up, however I could not bend my leg while standing, so there would be no way I could ride in them. The length was true to size as well and they were definitely low-rise. The measurements were EXACT, so if you purchase them, you'll get exactly that. There is NO "give" or stretch, so make sure if you are at the exact size on a particular measurement, you go up to the next size and tailor them down. You'll regret it if you don't. Trust me. Save yourself the $15 to ship them back to Rods to exchange them, and just order the next size up (if you have no "wiggle room" in any of the measurements, that is).
These are great for showing. They are high quality chaps, especially for the price. We are very happy with them. Please keep in mind that they are "low rise" so, if you are used to a chap that comes up higher on the waist, you will need to order the adult chaps.
Heavy enough to use for work, cut nicely enough to show in. They really need Velcro to hold "tails" up when I am not in the saddle, and I can add that, but for the price they should come with it.
