Colorado Chaps specializes in custom fit, water resistant 1000D Cordura nylon, abrasion and water resistant Ballistic nylon, breathable cotton canvas or heat resistant Kevlar chaps in a rainbow of colors and options for Motorcyclists, Equestrians, hunters, construction workers, or anyone else who wants to work or play hard and stay clean or dry! We also offer half-chaps for folks who don't need as much coverage or don't wear a belt.
Each pair is hand cut here in Colorado allowing us to fit all shapes and sizes of men and women while adding customizable features that imported factory built chaps couldn't begin to offer.
Our “shotgun style” chaps feature a full length non separating YKK zipper and a quick adjust side belt attachment for easy on-off operation. A large, easy access, covered pocket is on the front of each leg. Most models roll up small into their own included stuff sack to be conveniently stowed in your saddlebag or truck- ready to work when you are!
The first pair of Colorado Chaps was made for an ol' Wyoming cowboy who hunted elk in Levis® no matter how extreme the fall Rocky Mountain weather got. Any outdoors man or woman can attest to how cold and dangerous wet cotton can be. So instead of sending him out in bulky snow pants, we made him a modern version of the chaps he wore in his youth, replacing heavy leather with lightweight mobile water-resistant nylon used to make backpacks. Since then, he's done a lot of trudging in the snow and mud, but always returns to camp with clean and dry Levis®.....thanks to his Colorado Chaps!
That was many years ago and since then the word got out! Our largest following comes from motorcyclists who want something lighter, more comfortable and packable than cumbersome leather chaps. For them, we offer many special options like reflective tape, heat resistant Kevlar, mesh back for hot weather, CE certified knee armor, and for the total diehards, fleece lining! It turns out our equestrians like that too!
Send us your inseam and thigh measurements and a shopping list of options and we will guarantee you a custom and durable pair of chaps that you will be wearing for many years to come.
