|Gun Leather III||Pendleton Chap Class|
Chaps not only provide protection from the weather and brush, they give the rider a superior grip on the saddle. Shotgun, 5-snap, and zippered chaps provide the most coverage and warmth. The 5-snap chaps and Colorado Work chaps are sufficiently ventilated to be comfortable in summer, too. Cool in the summer, and easiest to walk in, our Chinks are made "Northwest Style," providing full coverage to the inside of the knee and are long enough to kneel on. This type of chink uses almost as much leather a pair of chaps. Chinks with less coverage are available upon request.
All my chaps and chinks are made of oil-tanned, work weight leather unless requested otherwise. The shotgun leathers are usually a little lighter and softer than leathers in the batwings and snap style of chaps. American Bison, Water Buffalo, and Horsehide are also available.
More colors of leather are available besides what are pictured on these pages. To see more colors, go to the leather colors page.
Measure your inseam fully and leg measurements snugly when using the chap chart at the Order page.
Exotic hair-on chap materials include Angora (white, black, and some bright colors sometimes available), Tibetan Lamb (finer and longer than Angora, black or white), Bear, Buffalo, and brindle, spotted or black Cowhide.
Nice feminine cut with tiny flowers, kangaroo buckstitching, and scalloped sterling conchos. $670

PLUM CHINKS WITH BULLFROG INSERTS
Award-winning chinks made from glove-tanned plum leather, with gray Bullfrog inserted behind the diamond cut-outs, matching the gray mulehide fringe. (Although it doesn't really show in any of the photos, Bullfrog is a finely grained leather with tiny bumps that are a slightly darker shade of gray on the tops of the bumps.) Floral carving on Drum-brown leather really adds to the roping yokes and belt on this pair of chinks. Other features include tooled belt loop, fancy Stainless Floral buckle in back, and Sterling Silver Conchos securing the break-away string in front. $1200
