When measuring for chaps it is usually best to have someone else measure for you. It is best to use a cloth tape for measuring the circumference of the leg like the thigh. calf, knee and so on. A stiffer metal tape is best for measuring the length measurements like outseam, inseam. and crotch to calf. In the descriptions below the term "snug measurement" will be used, this means the slack is pulled out of the tape but does not mean tight. It would be best to mark the measurement locations on your leg with tape or chalk to insure that they arc taken in the proper locations. This will also make it easier to double check all measurements accurately.

Hip - take a snug measurement around the base of the belt loops, this will be about 4" larger than the waist size of your pants.


Outseam - the length from the base of the belt loops to the floor, with boots on. If you prefer to wear your chaps above the base of the belt loops then this measurement should be taken at that point.


Inseam - the length from the crotch to the floor with boots on.
Crotch to knee - the length from the crotch to the center of the knee-cap.


Thigh, upper - the circumference of the thigh at the crotch. Take a snug but not tight measurement.
Thigh, middle - the circumference of the leg at this point which is halfway between the 7 and 11. Take a snug but not tight measurement
