How to Measure Yourself

To get the best measurement for your half chaps or gaiters, we would recommend wearing the breeches/jodhpurs and socks that you'd normally ride in. 

Sit in a straight chair (dining chair) with your knees bent at a 90° degree angle to the floor. Have someone to help you measure if possible, for accuracy.

Calf Measurement

To determine your calf width, take the measurement all the way around your calf at the widest point (in CMs or inches).

Calf Height
To determine your calf height, measure your lower leg height from the floor to the bend behind your knee.
