This outfit, with accompanying serape carried over the arm, was made to enter the Cody Western Design Conference. The chaps and serape (or Bear-Behind Saddle) were tooled with Buffalo Bill in mind. Both are lined in canvas and bound in buckskin. The Bear-Behind Saddle has handtooled bluffs that fit around the saddle, with a raised tooled buffalo head featured in the wing of both sides. The name “Bear-Behind,” comes from the Indians who put a piece of hide behind them on their horse when hunting to protect their horse while carrying meat.

This being a wild event, these bull riding chaps are a bit that way themselves!

Weighting is very important --
the boys now like the 13-15 inch fringe. It seems not much regard is given to the fact that it tears out easy and
just gets downright snotty looking
in short order.

Here, a 9-11 inch fringe is much more durable and will keep its good looks a lot longer.

About Our Chaps and Chinks


Leather Legends is a family owned and operated business. Everything that we offer is made in our shop in Fromberg, Montana. Click here to visit our shop and showroom

Leather Legends' chaps and chinks are made to fit like no other's. Our chaps and chinks fit right to the crotch. Yet when you are in the saddle they are where they should be, not six inches down on your leg.

The chaps and chinks by Leather Legends are works of art. Each pair is so uniquely hand-crafted, with exquisite design and meticulous attention to detail, they are instant collectibles. All fringe is cut and pointed by hand. When twisted fringe is desired, it is all done by hand. When the leather is light and soft enough to permit, we turn all of the raw edges over which gives a very finished appearance.

Only the finest materials are used. The leathers are picked by hand with an experienced eye for the quality of the grain, the finish, and the suppleness. A wide variety of leathers and colors are available. The proper leather is also chosen for its suitability for a particular rodeo event or other type of use.

Our work with the material and the construction of our chaps and chinks is a labor intensive and time consuming process. We take great care to lay out our patterns, so the leather stretches correctly and to avoid as many blemishes as possible. Leather being a natural product there are always blemishes to work around. We take great pride in the fact that our chaps are not pieced together like so many of the imported chaps.

Part of the superior quality of our chaps is that they are sewn with aproximately 10-12 stitches per inch, depending on the weight of the leather. This creates a much more detailed and fine finished product. Tooled belts and leg pieces are a detailed process, with many different steps. Tooling the edges alone is a nine step process. All of our tooling is produced by hand. We use 5-6 ounce and 7-8 ounce tooling leather which is more expensive but well worth it.

Our chaps and chinks are all designed with inner leg trim and top of the line latigo for the straps: usually three straps on each leg with 5/8" roller buckles made of nickel. However, if so desired, chaps and chinks may be made with two buckles on each leg or with zippered legs.

We sew our zippers to what we call a "gussett" rather than directly to the chap. It wears better, and zips much easier. We also use proper "right" and "left" side-oriented zippers so that the zipper slide is always positioned on the rear portion for fast and easy action. Our zippers carry a three year warranty.

Leather Legends is well respected in the industry and has over 30 years of experience in leather chap making and pattern designs. Our items have been worn by Rodeo World Champions, Miss Rodeo America Contestants, and Rodeo Queens. Some of our leather chaps are on display in the Rodeo Hall of Fame.

Don't see what you're looking for? Ask for it. We create brands and designs of all kinds. Other special request items may be available upon inquiry. We make a wide range of quality leather garments, of which only a small sampling is shown here.

Chaps and chinks for rodeo, western riding, english riding, cowboys, cowgirls, bikers, motorcycles, work, play, or show. Designed just for you and made to order for men, women, and children. Hand-crafted and custom-made in Montana by Leather Legends, USA. Our chaps and chinks are beautiful, tough, stylish, practical, and elegant.
