I can't speak for anybody else, but I just started using them this year and in the right circumstances, they work great. I have over pants for when it's really cold but I was looking for something for those swing season days when it's cold at the start but warms up in the afternoon, in this situation the chaps work perfectly because they keep the wind blast off my legs and my legs warm, but they're easy to take off and store in the saddle bag when the day warms up. One of the reasons I gave them a try was their price, I got a nice pair of leather chaps (no fringe or anything) from Jafrum for about $50-60. I'm happy with them and I never thought I would be a guy who wore assless chaps, but I'm old enough to just go with what works and not care about how it looks or what anybody else thinks.
Just my two cents
