Lots of good choices out there, take a look at Fox Creek Leather.
Everything they sell is made to last a life time.

Bought a pair of Fox Creek Classics last September - good soft and supple leather, good price and made in the USA. I've been buying from this company for many years and they have great service. Would highly recommend them.

I also got mine from Fox Creek. Paid about a third of what you mentioned. Mine are easy to put on. They are 2 pieces. Each one attaches to my belt with a single strap that wraps around the belt and snaps.

No hopping around on 1 foot dragging the rest of the outfit. Easy to take off or put on by the side of road when you decide on or offf.

Have had mine for 3 seasons. Still look new. Makes cold
Weather tolerable

Got the HD ones. Slathered all my leathers with several coats of Obenauf's oil. HD stuff costs but its done right. No hard spots or ridges to make you uncomfortable on long rides.

I paid about $100 for a good pair of chaps made in the USA back in the mid-90's. Keep them clean and supple. Still use them all the time. They are old school, but comfy. Only thing I wish they had was a pocket I could get to. Once on, I can't access my jeans front pockets.

Got some 1st gear, have snap in winter liners. Deep front pockets that snap and zip, 2 each side. About 140$ around 4 years they're still in good shape. Pockets are deep enough I ain't afraid to carry my wallet or phone in them. They came in brown or black.

I have a Fox Creel leather coat which I love... great quality but I had a hard time getting right size to fit. Sent back twice of which they charged me shipping each way which was expensive to do so. So when buying my chaps I decided to make sure they fit, I ended going to HD and got a pair so I could try them on. They fit great and are good quality as well, pockets are deep and have snaps, and a third with a zipper.

Not sure if anyone mentioned it, but I'd check into Fox Creek Leather if I was a chaps wearing kind of guy.

I got a pair a couple years ago from Leather Up for around 60-70 bucks. They work fine and are comfortable.

I picked up an inexpensive pair of chaps at a bike rally this past summer. Less than 100$. They are not a real thick gauge leather but so far they are working well for my application. Made by hot leather.

On the chaps issue. Was wanting to get a pair also, but was wondering if there is any problem with the chaps "bleeding" if they get wet or if you sweat. Love riding to work and would love to do more when the temps drop, but can't afford to ruin clothes every time I ride.

HD Chaps are lined, except for the bottoms which you trim to length. Drenched in Obenauf's leather oil, mine haven't wet through. I think you'd be good.

For me it was finding chaps that fit. I don't even remember where I got them.
