Style Tip: Chaps

Keep your chaps looking brand new by taking care of them after every ride.

Step 1: Before you put away your chaps, wipe off any dust and dirt. Leaving dirt on your chaps can damage them and eventually cause the color to fade. Keep a soft-bristled grooming brush—that’s only used on your chaps—in your chap bag, and use it to brush off any dirt after every ride.

Step 2: When you hang your chaps, take the outsides of your chaps (in this case the rough leather side), and put them together, leaving the inside of the chap exposed. This protects the outside of the chaps and prevents sun-bleaching. For ultimate protection, store them in a chaps bag or other hanging bag.
