The waist on these chaps is adjustable with the belt in front which has a wide adjustment range, so the waist can be adjusted to fit most anybody if the chap size is chosen correctly based on the thigh. For example, the waist belt on the size XL chap can be adjusted from 35” to 44”.
The most important measurement is the thigh. Measure your thigh up high near the crotch where it is the largest. Then use the chart to choose the smallest size that is bigger than your measurement. And measure yourself wearing the clothes you think you’ll be wearing with the chaps.

Inseam is a bit tricky in chaps since chaps don’t have a crotch seam, but based on what I see, the inseam is about 321” for the smaller sizes, about 33” for the mid-sizes and 34” for the largest sizes. This length should be long enough for the “average” height person, and then the legs can be cut or hemmed to the ideal length. Before you hem, make sure to sit down to get the desired length while on a motorcycle. If the inseam sounds short for you, then these chaps probably aren’t the ones you need, and you should look for a chap that is available in a tall size.
Our Two Cents
The Degree leather chaps are now on sale! These chaps are good quality, classic chaps. The main difference between these chaps and Black Brand’s Moto and Torque chaps is in the feature list. These chaps don’t have an inside nylon liner to below the knee and they don’t have the expansion panel at the top of the thigh. The overall design and materials is comparable to the two other styles. Enjoy the savings! :: Paul, 04-04-18
