U.S.A. Made U.S.A. Chaps - 07/12/2015
Reviewer: Tree Hugger
I love these chaps, very solid quality. I hope to not ever have to test them, but I am confident if I do need them to stop the saw they will. The color is great, I got the safety red and I like it it is actually red. The buckles are solid and the straps are located in the right places. I like to hug trees and I like to cut them down, I like to relax in their shade on a warm summer day. I like to warm myself with the heat they freely give by the fire on a cold night. I feel each tree has a unique destiny and we are blessed if we can be a part of it. Enjoy nature and use it wisely, we are part of it.
great fit - 04/05/2015
Great fitting chaps, easily fitted over any kind of pants with three snap-buckles per leg. They don't limit the movement or flexibility or freedom of movement at all, very pleased with these thick chaps.
Safety Chaps - 02/16/2015
I researched several different brands of chaps and determined that this pair fit my demands the best. Full wrap, extra long, made in the USA and reasonable cost. I like these leggings. They are easy to put on and take off which helps in using them. I have recommended to my friends. A good product. TreeStuff was easy to deal with and delivery was quick.
Excellent condition after two plus years. - 01/19/2015
I've had these chaps for two and half years now and they have held up very well. In the winter, they will keep you warm. When the weather warms up, they will keep you even warmer. These chaps are great in brushy conditions and limbing up downed trees in miserable 'trip' conditions that a moose wouldn't want to walk through. If you've ever seen a moose walk through impossibly dense brush in the woods... Anyhow, I really like the full wrap chaps for the added protection they seem to give me in those awkward and likely to trip situations when limbing. As to how well they stop a saw, I cannot say, nor do I wish to find out. I can say that I have tripped, slipped, and fallen on my saws(s), chain not running, and not been cut by the teeth. Regular clothing will not protect you from a sharp chain tooth from just falling against it, these will. If you get hit with a running chain, I'm sure you will be badly bruised, maybe worse, but this is preferable to the alternative scenario of not wearing them. The size saw you run doesn't matter. I run everything from a Stihl 201T to the 880, with a preference for the 660 with 32" bar. I've cut in to stones, nails, barely missed 1" steel tubing, and hit deck screws (the hardened steel screw did the most saw damage!), and had the most 'innocent looking' cutting events turn it to, "What just happened?", events in a heart beat. These are good chaps and very cheap insurance. You can't see what is inside a tree when you begin cutting. Always be prepared for anything. Always use proper saw grip, stabile stance, good gloves, helmet, proper footwear, and CHAPS.
One last point; Urban / suburban trees are usually the worst for buried objects. These are mostly nails, screws, staples, screw hooks, lag bolts (!), various steel objects from fencing, barbed wire, and on occasion, live power (120V AC) lines that trees have grown over. Usually these objects were put in when the tree was much younger, I've found nails at fifteen year growth rings when the tree was seventy plus years old. Think nails in the heart wood from tree houses, boat houses, swings, dog runs (anywhere from eight to twenty five feet up the tree), etc. I had one large oak that someone nailed porcelain stand-off insulators to, in order to run power to a garage from the house, circa 1940s, completely overgrown by the tree such that the wires looked like they were part of the tree. Seventy plus years of growth over the wires! I asked the home owner if the garage lights worked, it was an estate situation, she couldn't tell me. We went over to the garage and the lights worked! It was a live circuit after all of those years! Amazing! So, assume nothing! Check everything several times! Have a backup to the backup plan and be ready for anything. It's a good day when things are what they seem to be; Usually things are not what they seem to be.
great chaps - 10/15/2014
these are my first pair of chainsaw chaps. A few months back I was in the woods cutting up a tree and cought my knee with the saw. It was a nasty cut which resulted in a trip to the ER and multiple stitches. The ER visit cost me $250, far more than the cost of these chaps. Needless to say, I wish I had purchased them earlier
They are very heavy duty and I have no doubt they will prevent another accident and injury. I was feeling very nervous using the saw again after the accident so I purchased these chaps after seeing my neighbor's pair.
