Leather and textile jackets, pants, and chaps

4/1/2011

It wasn't all that long ago that finding women's riding gear in large and/or tall sizes meant crossing the aisle into the men's department. Fortunately for today's women riders, those days are long gone. 

WRN contributor Alisa Clickenger has scoured the options, compiling our most comprehensive list to date of leather jackets, leather pants and chaps, and textile jackets and pants in women's sizes 14 to 26, including tall. These buyer's guides are organized by size, with the largest sizes listed first. Manufacturer Web sites and sizing charts are listed at the end of each article.     

Use these guides as just that—a guide to get you started. Certainly in your own research you may find other brands that carry large sizes. We've listed the leading brands, as well as those smaller companies that we're familiar with. To get the rundown, click on the story links below.
