"They fit well and help you stand out when several people are working in the woods together. Hope I never need to use them though!"

it works but...

"I know this is what I should always wear. The problem is in the summer they are so hot I don't put them on. Otherwise it's a good product. Chainsaws are dangerous tools and you tend to use one in an unpredictable environment. You don't want to depend on luck if you use a chainsaw much, so this is a lot better than just Levis covering your delicate hide."

Feeling a lot safer!

"Finally got a "real" chainsaw and preferred to go the safer route and get some leg protection. With the horrific damage we had from our Halloween snow storm, I knew I needed to upgrade and get the equipment needed to complete the cleanup. I think these chaps are comfortable and provide good coverage. I wear a 34" inseam and these are just barely long enough. The clip buckles are easy to use and easy to adjust."

Husqvarna chaps

,
November 7, 2010
By MaineHick
from Maine
"These are great. I use them for homeowner use.
Pros: they keep you warm; great for walking through thorny / rough brush as you don't feel it so much; protective; orange is easy to find; inadvertently hit your leg with a running chainsaw while wearing chaps and you're far less likely to bleed out in the woods; keeps your pants clean.
The pocket holds the screwdriver / wrench tool for my saw perfectly which is helpful since I always know where it is.
The straps are easy to adjust and fit a wide variety of body types.
Cons:
These are hot in the summer. No other cons.
Final thoughts. If the pros wear these then we homeowner types should absolutely wear them. I consider myself safe but really, I am not a pro and the extra protection is great."

sizing incorrect

,
November 2, 2010
By hunter999
from Michigan
"the size listed as Waist size, is incorrect. The sizing listed is actually the Length. The waist is an adjustable lashing style strap & plastic clip-buckle. If you log onto the Husqvarna web site, you will see that the chaps are sized by Length, not Waist. Besides that, they seem pretty decent. I would have thought that the belt would have been leather, not a backpack type strap."

Better fit

"With the three straps around the lower leg, these will fit and remain in place better than chaps with only two straps."
