Country Lore: Safety Chaps

Protect your limbs when using a chainsaw with safety chaps.


| December 2005/January 2006


If you are working with a chain saw, you might want to invest in Kevlar chaps. Two of my uncles are foresters, and I’ve seen more than one pair of chewed-up chaps that prevented major injury or even the loss of a limb. They cost $100 or so, but will pay for themselves in one slip if your adrenaline gets pumping and the saw rips out of your hands, grabbing the Kevlar instead of cutting into your thigh.
