The W.E. Leg Chapps™ were specifically designed and patented to protect all areas of the leg from the waist to the feet from the flying debris, dirt and grass stains created when using string trimmers, hand held or walk behind edgers and some mowers. All W.E. Leg Chapps™ are made of durable, heavyweight cotton providing maximum protection & flexibility, yet are cool and comfortable. The elastic straps and hook and loop fasteners provide a fully adjustable and ergonomic fit every time. You don't have to take your shoes or boots off to put on any of these chapps! Pro-Tex™ Pads are available for added protection on some styles of W.E. Leg Chapps™. Machine Washable!
