For hunters, heading into the wilderness is always exciting and full of anticipation. Bird hunting chaps play a crucial role as a reliable companion during these adventures. They are like the unsung heroes of hunting, providing essential protection against nature's obstacles like thorns, brambles, and unpredictable weather.

Just picture yourself moving through thick woods or wet marshlands without any protection – it's basically inviting trouble. These chaps act as a strong barrier between you and the challenging elements of nature. They're built tough, making them the smart choice for hunters who value resilience and practicality in the wild.

In this article, we dive deep into the world of bird-hunting chaps and explore why they are an essential piece in the ensemble of every upland hunter.

Key Takeaways

  • High-quality materials in hunting chaps provide essential protection and durability for upland hunting.

  • Proper fitting chaps enhance comfort and functionality in the field.

  • Stone Creek Hounds’ Hunters Choice Chaps offer a superior blend of quality, durability, and comfort.

Hunting Chaps and Upland Hunting

For those immersed in the rugged world of upland hunting, having gear that withstands nature's tests is crucial. Hunting chaps, primarily crafted from durable materials, are designed for just that. These chaps offer unparalleled protection against the harsh realities of the wild.

Not to be confused with brush pants, hunting chaps are designed to be worn over your regular hunting pants. These are typically made from sturdy materials to withstand the rigors of upland hunting. They provide essential protection against elements like thorns, brush, and moisture, which is crucial for any hunter traversing challenging terrains.

What To Look for When Choosing Hunting Chaps

As crucial as the material's durability is in upland hunting, equally important is knowing what specific features to look for in a pair of upland chaps to suit your needs best.

When in the market for a new pair of chaps, here are key aspects to consider:

Material quality and protection

Hunting chaps made of high-quality materials not only ensures longevity but also provides necessary protection against elements like thorns and brush.

Fit and sizing

Getting a correct fit is essential. Chaps with a normal pant inseam and adjustable features like belts or straps offer a more tailored fit, accommodating different thigh sizes and leg areas.


Look for features like heavy-duty zippers and waterproof materials that enhance the chaps' functionality, especially in diverse and challenging hunting environments. Materials that are lightweight will also help you maintain comfort and flexibility during extended periods of activity.

Versatility and Style

While the primary purpose is protection, considering the style and additional uses of the chaps for different outdoor activities can be beneficial.

Getting the Right Fit for Your Hunting Chaps

Getting the right fit for your hunting chaps is crucial for comfort and functionality. Here's a step-by-step guide to ensure you make the best choice:

Measure your thigh

Measure the widest part of your thigh over a pair of jeans or regular hunting pants. We recommend adding 2-3 inches to your thigh measurement for the best fit. Remember, the chaps should hang straight and not be too tight.

Consider the inseam

Measure your inseam length. This ensures the chaps are long enough to protect your legs but don't drag on the ground. To do this, measure the length from your crotch to the ball of your ankle and round down to the nearest even number if you get an odd-numbered result.

Use the size chart

Match your measurements with the size chart provided on the product page. Our sizes range from Slim to X-large so that everyone can be properly protected against thorns and brush.

Adjust for comfort

Stone Creek's chaps come with an adjustable quick-clip nylon strap at the top to enable a secure and comfortable fit.

By following these steps, you'll be able to select a pair of chaps that offer a perfect fit, essential for a comfortable and successful hunt.
