I have an inexpensive pair of chaps I bought at a "horse supply" store near where I live. They're made for motorcycling and the salesman seemed pretty knowledgeable when he was helping me pick a size. I thought they were too tight in the thighs but he said that's what you want. While reading some expanded info on Fox Creek's site, I found basically the same guidance. It says you should just be able to push your hand into the chaps at the top of the thigh but not be able to move it around or wiggle the fingers. Why are chaps supposed to be so tight in this area? It's one of the main reasons I don't wear them more often - simply a pain and a bother squeezing into them. Has anyone bought some with actual room in the thigh and wished they were tighter or discovered some reason why they shouldn't be looser and more comfortable?
