Choosing the Best Upland Chaps: Your Complete Guide to Comfort in the Hunt

Hunting chaps have a history that spans back quite a few years, originally designed to offer basic protection against thorns, brush, and harsh, wet weather conditions. However, today's upland chaps are a different breed altogether. Modern designs incorporate a host of features that make a hunter's life easier and more comfortable.

Now you've got colors that provide better camouflage, leg zippers for quick wear and removal, and adjustable straps for a customized fit. Even the inseam length can be tailored to your needs. These aren't just pants anymore, but a fully integrated part of your hunting toolkit.

The Lowdown on Upland Chaps

Choosing the right pair of upland chaps isn't just about picking something off a shelf. It's about finding the perfect balance between comfort and practicality, especially when you're out in the field for hours on end.

Comfort and convenience

Comfort matters. You're out in the field for the long haul, not a leisurely walk in the park. Go for chaps that sit right but give you room to move. Adjustable straps are a big win here; they let you tweak the fit until it's just how you like it.


Fit is making sure you're protected from thorns, brush, and whatever else the field throws at you. Chaps that fit too loosely could snag on thorns or brush, while those that are too tight might restrict your movement. Pay attention to the inseam length and size and adjust where you need to. No one-size-fits-all here.


Good chaps should be made from durable materials like 420 nylon, capable of repelling the worst of briars and burrs. They should also have extra-long zippers on the legs, making them easy to put on and easy to take off while wearing boots.

Double-stitching for extra strength is a bonus to ensure that they can withstand the rigors of regular outdoor use.


If you're a serious hunter, you need gear that can take a beating. Heavy-duty materials that are water and wind-resistant can go a long way in extending the life of your chaps.


While it might be tempting to go for the cheapest option when buying chaps, remember that you often get what you pay for. A quality pair of chaps is an investment in your hunting success.


The design should suit the type of hunting you do. More importantly, the design should be functional. The color should blend in with your hunting terrain. And the chaps should have all the features you need for convenience.


The material of your chaps has to withstand more than a little wear and tear. We're talking heavy-duty fabrics that are up to the task—resistant to wind, tough against briars, and ready for whatever the hunt throws your way. Quality materials offer the kind of protection that keeps you hunting longer and harder.


Quality should always be a priority. Look for features like long-lasting zippers, a comfortable fit, and durable construction. These are signs of chaps that are worth their price tag.
