BuckarooGear specializes in custom Chinks, Chaps & Armitas. We have many different styles and options. This page is in place to discuss the specific options, and choices available with GreatBasin Armitas.
One of our most popular styles. The Great Basin Armitas feature a fixed sewn in fringe apron, with a buckle belt in back. Many people prefer this configuration as they are able to run the back belt through their belt loop on their jeans. The Great Basin Armitas also feature strap and clip leg closures which are fully adjustable.
We believe that fringe should extend to just short of the top of your boot, we use the out-seam measurement to achieve this. If you would like your fringe to fall shorter on your leg please provide us with a shorter out-seam measurement.
For warmer climates most prefer the lighter weight glove soft hide. Weight may vary between 3.5 to 4.5oz. For those in colder climates we can get heavier weighted leather with the same glovey feel, this leather falls in the 5 – 6oz. weight range.
We build armitas in a wide variety of colors. I you can find what your are looking for in the hide sample chart please contact us. Click Here For Color Samples.

Pocket-You may add a flap style pocket please specify which leg.
Scalloped Leg Plate- This is a signature look of our Armitas. Rather than using chap leather for the leg plate we use Tooling & Strap leather in a classy scalloped design and Border stamp it. Click here for an example. You can also see a pair below, on the very bottom.
