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 Custom GreatBasin Chinks. 

Our Great Basin Chinks are a cross between our BuckarooGear Chinks and the Popular BuckarooGear Armitas - Made with a unique narrow and non-restricting belt top style and extra long square cut fringe patterned from our Armita styling, these Great Basin chinks offer the best of both worlds.

All Chinks are Custom Made per Your Specifications - Our chinks are made with your choice of color in glovey soft cow hide. The glovey soft cow hide is widely preferred because it is comfortable and form fitting. Although I prefer a phone call you may order your custom chinks here on the web site.

Laced Legs or Chicago screws on the leg plates. (we have have 3 choices of concho add-ons)

Everything we build has long fringe, without compromising leather coverage.


We believe that fringe should extend to just short of the top of your boot, we use the (length) measurement to achieve this. If you would like your fringe to fall shorter on your leg please provide us with a shorter length measurement.

Tooling/Stamping & Strap Leather

Only the best is used on the tooled belt tops, leg plates and back belts. 10/12 oz. American Tanned Skirting Leather is the #1 Choice.

Chap Leather

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. Please specify when you order.
