Bought some horsehide chinks years ago in Chama, looking for the maker Wayne Akins. Said he was related to folks down the road from me in Hopland, CA. Anyway if you know of him let me know I'd like to touch base.

I ordered up a set of shotgun chaps after some raving reviews on the sass wire and I was certainly steered in the right direction. They were very pleasant to deal with and had me out a set of chaps in record time, despite an estimate of 4-6 months. The chaps look amazing, but they feel even better. These folks are fantastic to deal with and put out a quality product you would expect at twice the price. I could not be happier!

Bought a pair of chaps from Doc at Back At Cha in September 2016. Very nice chaps, love em'. Great workmanship. Ordered another pair today for my grandson who has just started shooting with me.

Wow, what a fantastic pair of chinks at a fantastic price. Everything I asked for was done and they fit perfectly. Super fast turnaround time and shipping. If anyone asks where to get Chinks/Chaps, my only response will be Docs Old West!!

I received my Open Range custom chaps a few weeks ago and I absolutely love them. They are much better than I anticipated, great craftsmanship and material. Thanks!!

Andrea was GREAT to work with! I found these folks and the chaps first on RanchWorldAds.com, then on their website. I needed a basic pair of working chaps that would work in the Arizona and New Mexico deserts. I settled on the #14 STEP THRU DARK BROWN BATWINGS. We got everything figured out via phone communications. The chaps fit perfectly and are exactly as Andrea represented them to be! I'd recommend doing business with these folks to anyone! Happy trails Andrea!, Mike Foate

I received my new shotgun chaps in the mail late yesterday afternoon. Wow! They're even more than I expected. They are drop dead gorgeous and fit perfectly. Doc, you are a true craftsman. I will wear these chaps with pride. They are the perfect addition to my SASS outfit. Thank you both so much. I appreciate your courtesy, responsiveness, and willingness to work with me and get everything done with great artistry. Nantahala Ned #97305

I found your stamp on a pair of chaps I recently purchased at a tack and leather shop here in NH. I really like the design and they're very functional too. -AA

Hello Doc, Just wanted to let you know that I placed 3rd in the Shooting Costume contest at EOT 2015. It was my first time in the costume contest. The shotgun chaps that I got from you sure brought the look together. Thanks!

I bought my first pair of hair on chaps from Doc while at Comin at Cha this weekend. They looked great and Doc took the time make some adjustments for me on sight. I was so impressed with his quality of work that I went back and ordered two pairs of chinks!!

I received my light weight period correct step-thru shotgun chaps. Boy Howdy! They look great and fit fine and are exactly what I was looking for. Thanks so much for your consideration and quick turn-around. Well Done.

Hi - I bought a set of chaps from you in Jan 2012. I use them daily to work cattle. Can you tell me how to clean them or do you guys clean them? Thanks.

I ordered a pair of black chinks with twisted fringe at Winter Range. I have wanted a black pair forever.....they came in today and all I can say is WOW! They are amazing and came in before I thought they would...just in time for a Mounted Shoot this weekend! The leather is butter soft and the twisted fringe is beautiful....I can't wait to wear them but they are so pretty I thought about just looking at them....(NOT REALLY!) Thanks so much for such a wonderful pair of chinks at such a great price. I am so appreciative of the quality work you did. I will be letting people know where I got them for sure....now to bling them out with spots!!!

Dave Sullard (Titus A. Gnatsass) said on Dec 15, 2013 9:32 AM

I was so impressed with the price and quality of repair work you did on my chinks at Comin' At Cha that I had to look you up at the SASS Convention. I'd always wanted a pair of hair-on batwing chaps, and you guys had the perfect pair for me. Super fit, comfortable and look great! Truly some of the best chaps out there, especially for the price. THANKS!

My Chinks were exactly what I was looking for: Lightweight, antiqued, and BLACK! Your customer service is outstanding. From one “Doc” to another, Thank YOU

Got my custom "old School' batwings in to day. They are just what I asked for and look like they will last forever. Thanks so Much to Andrea and Doc!

Received my custom order Quigley Down Under chaps and they look mighty fine. Doc's work is first rate and his attention to detail and use of top grade hides shows in the end product. Can't wait till the next SASS shoot to show them off!!!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tim Norris (Snake Whip) said on Jul 19, 2013 10:36 AM

My chaps arrived today. They fit great and are exactly what I ordered! My wife really likes them, so I'm sure you can expect another pair to be ordered soon. Now to start breaking those puppies in! Thanks for your prompt service. You finished way ahead of schedule. I may want to be buried in them. Snake Whip

Solid and well built. My batwings turned 3 years old last week, miles upon miles on them, they've endured everything from nasty buck offs to bad weather. They wear great and look better and better with each ride.

Bronco Man said on Jun 17, 2013 8:30 AM

Just got my chinks, and they look "awesome" the craftsmanship is fantastic. I would highly recommend anyone that looking for Chaps or Chinks to contact Docsoldwest.

Joe Webb said on Jun 6, 2013 4:35 AM

I ordered a pair of chinks from you guys a month or two ago and I'm really impressed with the quality and craftsmanship. They look like they could withstand pretty much anything I can throw at them. I even shod a couple horses in them with nothing to show but a tiny rasp mark. Thanks for a quality product. I'll definitely be doing business with you again.

Chris Schunk said on Mar 12, 2013 7:49 AM

My custom chinks are awesome. Thanks

Lee Courtney said on Jan 16, 2013 2:37 AM

Love the custom made Bat-wing chaps you made for me years ago, off of Ebay. They have taken me thousands of miles down the trail and worked & trained plenty of horses along the way. I will be back for another pair when I wear them out .... Keep up the great work & craftsmanship !!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vance Montana said on Jul 13, 2012 12:31 PM

Doc, your the best and boys love there chaps, I can't wait to get mine? Vance

Bob Besecker (Fancy Bob)said on May 10, 2012 said on May 11, 2012 5:58 AM

Love the new chaps with the distressed leather. Got to keep them away from the wife now, so will be ordering a pair of chinks so both of us can wear one or the other. They feel great and light weight to wear.

Met you at the Land Run in Oklahoma. Look forward to getting my batwings.

Myself and my hunny bought a pair of chinks at Winter Range and we love them!!! And I am glad I bought mine when I did, cause another cowboy came by the following day to purchase them!!! Take care you two and hope to see you again down the trail.

Outstanding job on theses chinks they will last me a lifetime beating through the colorado brush guiding elk hunts.

Just saw on his blog information on light weight chaps you made for for Capt Baylor. If you would decide to market them at prices in line with your existing chaps I would be interested in purchasing. It is hot here in San Antonio and need the light weight for cowboy action shooting.
