Leather chaps need to be very thick to stop snakes fangs, making them heavy. In addition, when they dry, after wetting, they tend to harden and crack creating weak spots that are a hazard to the user. The rigid plastic chunks do not allow the heat to go out, so they are very uncomfortable on hot days, because they are rigid they prevent movement easily and make a lot of noise when brushing the weeds in the field, as they do not have grip to the instep it is easy to be Rotate on the limb, also because of their design are difficult to put and very easy to remove, to the degree that a branch can sometimes loosen them without the user even notice. ARCTODUS MANGOSTA V1.0 Chaps are flexible, light and because of their closure system they do not open nor are they affected by repeated water contact.

Of course yes. In fact the tests performed on ARCTODUS MANGOSTA Chaps V1.0 with rattlesnakes are made repeated attacks without major problem. The chaps are composed of several textile layers that prevent the passage of the fangs, so that only a tear that completely opens a groove in some layer would make them vulnerable, but such damage could only make a sharp object, not a fang.
