Leather chaps are perhaps the main leather motorcycle apparel choice for all bikers. One thing that very few people understand is that leather chaps are unisex, thus when you are being measured for leather chaps, you will want to make sure that you are wearing jeans. Start off by measuring your thighs at the thickest part, you don't have to worry about your waist because the waist on leather chaps are adjustable. Also, when you are being measured for leather chaps make sure that you wear the boots you plan to wear when you wear your chaps, this will ensure that the leather chaps are cut to the exact length necessary for your boots.
If you want to have superior protection against the outdoor elements, than make sure your leather chaps are lined with Thinsulate, which is a lining that goes inside of your chaps to provide you with extra protection. When you purchase naked leather chaps, there is no need for a break-in period, thus you are able to enjoy your leather chaps right away.
