Let's talk chaps a minute......

I've been researching a lot and seems the overwhelming consciences is that Fox Creek is the way to go when it comes to quality leather especially chaps.
With that being said what is another good option that's maybe not in the $200+ range.
I'm needing to buy 2 pair for those just in case moments. Believe me I'm a firm believer in "you get what you pay for" but I know there has to be some quality chaps out there in the $100 range that would fit my needs? Me and the wife don't ride when it's too cold so they wouldn't get a lot of use. I know we're wussy's!
I just need to have them in the tourpack on the occasions when needed.

Thanks everyone!

From the land up Northeast where we wear them alot I wouldn't buy any other. I have Walters and my wife has US Made. They both attend many events nationwide like Daytone, Sturgis and of course Laconia.

Here's a slightly different kind of chaps that I use with great effect. https://www.airlite.ca/ They mount on the crash bar and not on the person. That said, I also have Harley chaps for my legs that I've had for about 10 years now. Good quality and I believe a lifetime warranty is offered now.

I have the Xelement B-7552 Men's Premium Motorcycle Easy Fit Chaps that I got from Leatherup for $74.95.
I'm on my second pair and love them.
When I crashed two years ago the chaps worked great the only reason I needed a new pair was that EMS workers had to cut them off as I was unconscious at the time.
Can't go wrong for the price.
Hope this helps.

I have been using LeatherUp.com: Motorcycle Gear, Biker Apparel, Parts and Riding Accessories for the last 10 years and not only are the prices at least 50% off of retail but the quality is great.
I have purchased jackets, vests, chaps & leather pants. The leather is thick and made very well. Take a look and save yourself some money. My wife just bought me a new leather jacket & vest. I added the Harley patches & here are two picture.

Whatthey are is chaps without a belt
They can be as heavy as standard chaps They have a tail that flips up over your belt and snaps back to themselves
The best thing about them is they Pack up in half the space as chaps
I bought mine in 1978 and have averaged 10 to 12,000 miles per season wearing them ever since
They wear like iron
I have replaced snaps and zippers a couple of times

I have had a pair of chaps from Leatherup.com for 4yrs now and only paid $85 and they are great. I just had to trim to length and they were good to go. Can't beat them for the money.

Less then $200 where are they made that chinese or india crap no thanks. Support independent local craftsman if possible. Every bike event here is full of foreign (7-11) vendors selling to motorcycle enthusiasts they have no clue.
