Chaps & Pants
Leather chaps were originally made as a protective garment for horse riders while they were walking through the brush. Other uses for chaps were they helped a rider keep a grip on their saddle. Today, chaps are still used by the occasional cowboy but the majority of chap sales are mostly for style and the motorcycle community keeps this tradition alive. Check out our complete collection of chaps for men, women and children.
Harley Davidson riders really have made the leather chaps synonymous with riding a motorcycle in today's day and age. Sure, there are many cowboys and rodeo riders still sporting these styles but it's the motorcycle community and the promotion by Harley Davidson clothing that keeps the popularity of chaps going strong!
If you do some research, you will find there are quite a few different style of chaps. Most chaps are made of leather but there are some who ask for pleather chaps, mainly for the price savings. EBikerLeather.com only carries genuine cowhide leather and our prices are competitive.
Be aware of the many styles of motorcycle leather chaps available for men's and ladies. The straight and tight fitting ones are known as "stovepipes". Shotgun chaps, as they are more commonly called is the earliest design used by cowboys and very tight fitting. This is popular for both the ladies and men. Other people prefer to go with the Batwing design because it offers more movement and more air to flow through, especially helpful when it's hot out. These were made more for rodeo riders who need the freedom of movement to control their horses better. For more details about the history of chaps and other styles like half chaps, click here.
