Performance Hi-Vis Apron Chap

Performance Hi-Vis Apron Chap
Reflective Apron Chaps designed for work along roadways.

Product Description

Wearing protective apparel on the jobsite is critical – especially when cutting near active roadways. The Performance Hi-Vis Apron Chaps feature Hi-Visibility Nylon Fabric that is visible by motorists traveling up to 50 mph. This meets the Class E reflective requirements and earns a Class 3 reflective rating when worn with the Class 2 reflective vest. The chaps also feature reflective tapes made from Reflexite Brilliance Series GP-340. And when it comes to cutting protection, these chaps include six layers of Avertic® Pro by Engtex® cut retardant material, designed to reduce the risk or severity of injury in the event of contact with the rotating saw chain on a gasoline-powered chainsaw.


The STIHL Performance designation identifies products for advanced users.

Important Information

IMPORTANT INFORMATION!
These protective garments contain pads of cut-retardant material designed to reduce the risk or severity of injury to the body parts covered by the pads in the event of contact with a rotating chain. The fibers in the pads provide extra layers of material and are designed to rip apart if they come into contact with the moving chain and to clog the sprocket and stop the chain in certain circumstances. In some contacts, the pads may stop the chain. In other contacts, the pads will resist the cutting process only for a fraction of a second. The actual degree of protection afforded will vary with the speed of the chain at the time of contact, the power and torque of the saw, the design of the chainsaw sprocket and similar factors. Follow the washing instructions. Improper care may destroy cut-retardant properties of the material.

WARNING FOR ELECTRIC CHAINSAW USERS!
The fibers will not stop the sprocket on most electric chainsaws because of their constant high torque.

Important Information All STIHL chainsaw protective apparel meets or exceeds OSHA Regulation 1910.266 for Personal Protective Equipment for chainsaw operators.

NOTE: Chaps are measured by overall length from the waist down. All chaps have a tough outer shell of oil/water-resistant nylon treated with rain/stain repellent.

WARNING! Improper use of any power tool may cause serious or fatal injury. Read, understand and follow carefully the operating and safety instructions in your instruction manual before using such products.

Reviews

Performance Hi-Vis Apron Chap is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from 1 Week Old Bought these in hopes of getting a high quality product. I have had them for one week and the reflective stripes are disintegrating and falling off. As well as the UL Certification tag. They have been used 4-6 hours daily. I cut fire wood for a living using a 60cc saw and these were the thickest ones the local dealer had.There are comfortable and easy to move around in. But that's it. Hopefully a set of Pro Mark's will change my position on stihl chaps

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty Protection for Professionals Be seen when it counts most. These chaps have 6 layers of protection fibers. Therefore, they are a bit heavy in the heat of Florida. This is to be expected from a quality product. I switch jobs quite often from Arborist to Prescribed Burning and they pull double duty. If you are certified in these areas and a professional that finds themselves near utility lines and roadways, then these are the chaps for you. Beginners can benefit from the protection these afford, but will need some time to get used to them.
