I would disagree with that, especially if you're spending much time in the tropics... I can assure you, my 8 year old Avon is in far better condition than it would be, had I not been using chaps, especially when down south...

But, that's one reason I recommend Stamoid, it's a very slippery material, hard to picture it creating much in the way of chafe...
