From making my own Chaps a few years ago. The first most important measurement will be our thighs then waistline. All chaps have extra holes were they come together to accommodate different waist size.

When I looked at the description, I also wondered what the four XL wearer looks like.
Wonder no more...

While not chaps, my riding pants are sized much larger than my street pants, which they fit over.
Also provides some room for range of motion on a variety of bikes.
Based on the size chart and recommendations to go a size larger on the waist measurements, I'd be a XXXL due to my waist but my thighs are like mighty oaks and would need the XXXXL.

Good luck with the sale!

I hope they work for you RC20 because 2 pages of men discussing crotchless leather pants is pushing me over the edge. :)

Please make sure you post a photo wearing them. Especially if they do not fit.

Still pondering how they would work in, my apologies to all. New idea to me and want to think it throught.

Having posted information about chaps, one might assume I prefer them or use them. I spent some time in a biker clothing and accessory shop, and owned a pair or two back in my HD riding days, but I simply do not prefer them at all now.

Oh yeah, a cute young babe looks hot as hell wearing them, but are they practical for us mature old farts?

Not really.

A warm pair of insulated pants is really the better option for cold weather riding.

Having said that, some riders do want or need the convenience or looks that chaps provide.

Thanks for your opinion, but how many times do you ride, or have ridden in sub zero weather, or in weather that goes to subzero during the day Tx2sturgis?

Returning to the original post--- The chaps are size 2X. Why do I have a new pair? I bought 2 when I got em, and changed my mind about having a need for extra pair...

Agreed Brian ! :lol:


Like BinDerSmokDat I'd probably get the 4x. (I'm not Barn size, but so what if I was ?) And wish I had the 3x.
Like Jaybird some clothes I won't buy online. Too risky or only if I know for sure from experience. Like Levis.
I can still fit, barely, in the $80 plain chaps I bought in '94. Never bought them for weather. I wanted chaps for protection. Saved my thigh on a damp oil slicked hook ramp once. And my shins from on highway rock/debris. Prefer to wear them and remove when stopped.

Honestly I was interested in these. Looked them up at Dennis Kirk. Can't do the size.
GLWS !

Many times, all winter long, for several decades.

Does that count?

I just prefer insulated riding pants.

You know, I'm trying to sell an item and you come on with an unwanted opinion to sway people from buying it.
This is one of those times when, I believe U should keep your opinion to yourself. Let people decide for themselves.

I rode to work several years, and didn't have the time to struggle, and didn't want to, with taking off pants when I got to work.
Thermal chaps fit the bill very nicely.

Ride On.

Did you miss the parts where I advised the buyers how to be sure the chaps would be the right size? Helpful, it was.

Did you miss the part where I said that for some people the convenience or look of chaps is the right solution? Another helpful piece.

But when the conversation began to get 'kinky'..a few jokes were posted, and I did state that even though I owned chaps, and helped fit others, that I myself prefer insulated riding pants for my own use. If you go back thru the thread you will see others expressing similar opinions. Hello! Chaps are not for everyone.

If you don't want a public conversation or opinions about the item you have for sale, then put it on ebay or craigslist. On a public forum that is free for us to use, you don't get to 'cherry pick' comments...

The fact is, that someone who wants that pair of chaps will buy it no matter what, cuz they already know about insulated riding pants, and are choosing to click on this thread because thermal chaps could be exactly what they are looking for. And any interest and activity in your forum article creates new posts, which keeps it active, and on the top, which means more forum members will see this thread.

Good luck with your sale, but don't be so damn whiney.
