Chainsaw Protective Apparel

Chaps, boots and more to help keep you safe

Whether you're cutting at home or on the job, stay sharp and suit up with STIHL chainsaw protective apparel. From lightweight apron chaps to winter protective pants, STIHL offers a complete line of chainsaw protective apparel for every season and every reason you cut.

It is a great privilege being the number one selling brand of chainsaws worldwide. But we view it as an even greater responsibility to help keep our customers protected while using them. That's why our chainsaw protective apparel is made with multiple layers of Avertic® Pro by Engtex®, a cut-retardant material designed to clog up the sprocket to stop the chain on a gasoline-powered chainsaw. This reduces the risk or severity of injury to the body parts covered by the Avertic® Pro by Engtex® layers in the event of contact with the rotating saw chain. Our chainsaw protective apparel is also easy to use, so it has you covered – without getting in your way.

STIHL chainsaw protective apparel is also wash and wear, unlike some other brands that require dry cleaning or light surface cleaning.

    Saved a life
    Had some people cutting thorny locust on a steep bank along my half mile driveway. Gave a Sawyer my Stihl chaps to wear as he didn't bring his. I was on a 4 wheeler moving between crews working top and bottom sections. When I came back down he apologized for ruining my chaps. I told him they did their job and that he probably would have bled out if he wasn't wearing quality PPE. The pro mark chaps stopped a ms261 running at full throttle and never penetrated the chaps. If you don't think it can ... read more happen to you,think again. Thank you Stihl for a truly life saving product.

    This product saved a trip to the Emergency Room!
    Bought a pair of the Pro Mark Apron Chaps the morning of November 25. That afternoon my son, wearing these new chaps, was limbing a tree when the saw kicked back. The running chain made contact just below his right knee and the Pro Mark Apron Chaps immediately stopped the chain. Thank's to the group at Stihl that designed and manufactured this outstanding safety gear. You save my son from a suffering a severe injury!

    Best christmas present I ever got!
    My wife gave me a pair of Pro Chaps on Christmas. I have been thinning some Pondarosa Pines on our 200 Ac. ranch and have cut down about 200 trees between 6 and 12 inches in diameter during the past couple months. Last week while cutting off some lower limbs so I could get to the trunk of a tree to fell it, a branch fell onto the saw blade and forced the saw into my upper thigh. The chaps stopped my Still 290 before it got to me. Not a drop of blood was spilt. I had to thank my wife again for ... read more the great Christmas gift. I am very glad I had the right safety equipment. After that experience, I won't cut without them, and I won't let anyone cut wood on our ranch without chaps. A lot cheaper than a visit to the ER.

    Great Product
    Great Product. You will need 'Y' suspenders, as they are low rise. I purchased size XL and I'm 6'4" and wear 42 x 32 pants and these are just right. I washed and dried them as described and they came out like new.

    Protect what you don't want to loose.
    These are replacing a very old and worn pair or zippered chaps, which have saved my legs more times than I care to count. I'm am independent tree cutter for a neighbor who performs tree clearing in Northern Michigan and have seen too many accidents from chain saws to the legs. In my opinion, the open-back (wrap around) chaps move too much on the leg for good, solid protection. Have tried different styles/mfg. of cutting chaps over thirty years, and keep coming back to Stihl brand. Does get ... read more sweaty around legs during summer use, but keeps legs and body warm during winter use.

    Best chaps available!
    I have had two close calls over 12 years of cutting firewood (mostly tops). I wasn't wearing chaps either time. One was across the top of a steel toe boot, and the other caught the back of my left leg while I was pulling brush with my right hand. I wasn't injured either time, but I always thought chaps were stupid because they left the back of your leg exposed. When I found these, I did not hesitate to buy them. There are two robust zippers on each leg, so you can adjust the leg opening size to ... read more run them with heavy clothing in cold weather on the outsize zipper, and with just pants in the summer on the inside zipper. They have held up great to brush and briar busting and provide a lot of confidence. Don't run your saw without eye, hearing, and cut protection!

    Excellent boots
    Had a hard time tracking down a pair but was worth the effort. They provide superior protection and are comfortable enough to wear all day. You can’t go wrong with Promark series products.

    Easy to put on, nimble to wearer
    I wear my Woodcutter Chaps in very wet conditions. I maintain waterways. I wear them over breathable chest waders in the winter. Just this past week I had to use them, meaning the chain/bar tapped my knee when a widow maker hit my Stihl helmet (awesome helmet). Everything happened quickly. But my waders didn't receive any damage and neither did my knee. Oh it could had been bad but the chaps worked. Awesome stuff Stihl!

    Well Constructed - Wash Before Using
    Purchased these as part of Woodcutter's Helmet / Chaps kit. Well constucted and fit well. Not as cumbersome as I expected they might be. "Apron" description is a bit misleading as they strap around both legs separately. Glad I noticed instruction on tag to wash before use. Washing doubled the bulk of the inner safety layers and will no doubt make them more effective in the event need them to stop the saw. Note to Stihl: you might want to make that wash before use notice more prominent, such as ... read more on a tear-off tag on the garment.

    Safety first!
    I would feel naked without wearing these if I was using my chainsaw. Statistics has proven that a majority of all injuries caused by chainsaws occur to the lower extremities. These chaps cover the areas most commonly affected by chainsaw injuries to the legs. I love wearing these along with my other PPE. They fit very well and are adjustable at the waist and at 2 locations along the pant leg to fit the width of your legs. They are lightweight, flexible and allow a great range of motion to the ... read more operator. I like the black color chaps because the dirt and grime is less obvious to show.
