Batwing Chaps

Below are batwing chaps for sale. Batwing chaps are fuller cut than another common style of chaps called shotgun chaps.

Batwings are worn by working cowboys and cowgirls as protection against hazards inherent to a cowboy lifestyle. Batwing chaps can be plain or fancy and come with a variety of options.

Batwing Chaps Photos

Batwing chaps offer working cowboys protection from brush, trees, thorns, weather, branding irons, and other hazards inherent to their lifestyle. Working batwing chaps can be plain or fancy, come with or without pockets, and can have different types of closures.

Rodeo chaps, worn in competition by bronc riders and bull riders, are a variation of batwing chaps. They are often brightly covered with elaborate fringe or eye-catching decorations.

Below: Pockets on batwing chaps are a popular option. The pockets can have a closure, like the ones shown, or be more of a slit-style opening with a cover.

Below: Hair-on-hide batwing chaps. Some folks avoid hair-on-hide for working batwings because areas of the hair may wear off where the chaps get a lot of stress (for example, where a rope repeatedly rubs). However, they are still widely popular.
