When putting on chaps for the first time, you might be confused about how to wear them. They are not worn alone, but over other clothing such as pants or jeans.
There are two holes in the front and back, with a belt to buckle them in the front. There is also a strip of leather in the back, which can sometimes be either laced or buckled to tighten the chaps.
Start by ensuring the main side zippers on the legs are zipped open, with the waist unbuckled.
Step into the chaps making sure to rearrange them comfortably around you.
Buckle the waist, and close the side leg zippers, while arranging your jeans or pants underneath.
