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.

    Comfortable
    I rethought how I was working using a chainsaw and decided to significantly improve the safety aspects of my work. These chaps were perfect to help protect me from the most common chain saw accidents. I am six feet tall and moderate build, and the 36" chaps fit perfectly. They are comfortable, easily adjusted, and have some great features like reinforced black knees when you have to kneel in the ground. Even when practicing the best safety techniques, I feel secure and confident knowing the ... read more Stihl Pro Mark Apron Chaps are there. Thanks Stihl for the great scrutiny and research put into this product.

    6 year review
    My Pro Mark chaps have held up fine. They use to sell them in camo, which I have, and no problems wearing or using this product. I have been fortunate as I have one cut in each leg of my chaps from my 009. Both times I would have needed a visit to an emergency room and stitches had I not been wearing them. Both times I was cutting in a heaped brush pile with mesquite mixed in with the oak and the thorns distracted me enough when one would poke thru the chaps. Most thorns did not poke thru but I ... read more learned my lesson. I use my FS85 with the HT pole pruner to cut in brush piles now. I do wear them every time I cut since I bought them, a great investment I think.

    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!

    comfortable but short
    Comfortable but to short. Wish the blacks came in longer lengths like the orange. Note the 36 is from waist and is the longest in the black. Will you be getting longer size in black in future? I still haven't worn them yet to cut, in hopes of a longer black size. Really don't like the orange.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Great protection; feel cheap
    Chaps have good layers but feel cheap. The webbing and buckles are thin and clunky. I like the buckle placements (3 at bottom, one around the thigh, and the belt buckle). I wish they had pads in the knees and am afraid they will wear though; the outer material feels cheap. They are hot to wear, and while i thought the 6 layer would be less not, i don't think it is by much. I found the 6 layer in store, put them on, and immediately felt the insulation of the chaps. Due to this, I have worn light ... read more clothing underneath b/c I am covered in PPE. It would be nice if there were some way to breath more between your legs and chaps (spacer?). After running the saw, you don't notice the chaps. Awkward to walk in but not bad. Chaps are definitely heavy. No dealer carried these so had to special order. They only come in a 36" length, which is perfect for a 30-32" men's pant length. Price in 8/18 was $134.99, very reasonable, considering an ER visit copay can be $200. Belt is adjustable and only goes to a ~42" pant size; if you are worried, get the extension for ~$15 (must special order).

    Extra Protection for when ya need it
    I selected the Pro Mark full wrap chaps for the extra coverage and the extra layers they have built into them. I don’t see a slightly limiting garment as a drawback when you consider the protection they afford to the user when that day comes where the running bar bites you. Having the extra layers seems like a good idea with running the bigger power pro saws and why not while running the smaller stuff too. It’s become uncomfortable to drive without a belt on and it’s now the same way with my ... read more chainsaw equipment on. Just no good reason not to when you consider what can happen with a moments innattention. I reached for the full coverage based on the reviews here with stopping big saws, I would encourage anybody to do the same regardless of the size equipment your running. Get the best protection you can, you will never be sorry for the decision, especially if you need it one day.

    Great PPE to have when cutting lumber
    Product protects your legs from any kick back that may occur. If you do cut the chaps the saw stops immediately before it goes too far, (at least on gas powered equipment). Great product!
