I got my chaps in yesterday, and wore them today. I like them alot. I believe they will do good protecting the top of my boots. Also think it will be nice wearing them on those early summer mornings when the dew is heavy, to keep my legs dry
Be sure to measure from your crotch to your ankle bone or they will be too long. Also measure around your thigh at the largest part to get correct fit as baggy is not good . I have worn out a couple pairs of the Mule Chaps but it takes some doing to wear them cause they are tough. I never run without them on if its thick.
"Real hunters wear chaps" Thats a slogan I saw one time in a magazine. I didn't think much of wearing chaps untill I got off the tailgate and started following my dogs to see what they were doing. When buying dogs look for the guy with the tattered chaps. They know what their dogs are doing! I tried several different types of chaps, haven't tried the "mule" chaps yet. Maybe my next choice mine are pretty torn up.
I have a set of Dans Chaps that I purchased this past spring... they are pretty worn and not quite a year old yet... I ordered my Mules today. I have Mule Bibs and ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM. Trust me... you have to wear a lining or something uder them or you will be chafed!!!
I have used Nit Lites, Dans , Mule, Carhart, and Columbia.... Mule has my vote all the way!!!
Bglenut.... I an campaigning to be a Mule Clothing poster child...:clap:... I now have the chaps, bibbs, my bomber jacket, and a shirt pants are on the way. TodAY, I hunted in a downpour, my waterproof lined bibbs kept me dry...
There are a cpl posts on here regarding the Mule clothing... I believe the only thing I can see that would be a popular change is the zipper length need to be longer...
MULE chaps were a great investment. I will be purchasing a pair of bibs this fall. The only issue I have with mule is the zippers stick from time to time. The communication was great ordering them. I tell everyone about MULE.
