    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!

    Could have been bad....
    I was cutting some scrub brush at a friends place and my saw kicked back into my thigh. My saw stopped almost immediately. I took my chaps off to assess the damage, chaps worked exactly as they were supposed to. I had a line of bar oil on my jeans, but did not cut them. It took 45 mins to clean out my saw, and will need a new set of chaps....but WAY better than the alternative!!!

    Spend the extra for the protection
    Running 661-R, 362, 210 and 171. Use the chaos with all as I saw my brothers leg scar from the kick back he had. Ain't good to not wear even though the extra weight is aggravating.

    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 and Comfort
    After seeing my uncle run a saw into his shin I knew this was a must have a safety item. Watch the video on youtube on these pants and it will give you a real piece of mind when using your saw. I purchased my chaps in a package deal making it even a better value. The Chaps are extremely easy to get on and off. Other than them being a little hot on warmer days, you won't even notice your wearing them plus it saves a lot of wear on your pants.

    Durable and comfortable
    I have used these gloves on my Texas ranch for over 2 years - landscaping, hauling rocks, chainsaw work and more. Finally, after all that abuse I have a small hole at the tip of one finger. I have XL hands but medium wrists and the Velcro wrist band keeps out debris while I am working. My wife just bought me a different pair. I said thank you, but I will return them and buy another pair of these. She is so sweet. These gloves aren't quite as sweet, but they are the best I have had.

    Love these gloves
    Really love these gloves. They are great for rope work with the extra thick palm. Also really like the velcro wrist strap. Just wish they were a little more affordable or were cheaper if bought in bulk.

    Great gloves, great feel! Look stylish. Built for heavy duty work!
    This glove is well constructed and has a good padded palm area for gripping power tools. I love the design and color of this model of glove, very stylish. These definitely hold up better and is more durable than my Timbersport pair and my High Performance PRO pair of STIHL gloves.

    The best safety glasses made!
    I've went through quite a few glasses in my day. These are the best.

    This do everything I need and more.
    I bought a pair of these 2 or 3 years ago with black mirrored lenses. I have done everything to them. I cleaned them with window cleaner and alcohol, and the didn't etech. Paper towel and sand didn't scratch them. They took twigs to their the lenses at 20 - 30 MPH, and only have minor gouges. They really saved eyes during four wheeling season, and they fit over my vision glasses. I swam with them too and for the most part they kept water out (When I pinched them to my face). The stihl logo does ... read more wear off though.

    Awesome Glasses
    I am a landscaper and need safety glasses that I can trust. I purchased these glasses at the beginning of last season and they still look brand new. Not only protecting my eyes they also cut down on glare reducing eye fatigue. I now wear these anytime I am in the sun including driving. Can't beat them for the price!

    Possibly saved my life
    I purchased a MS-291 18" chain saw along with chaps and this helmet. Earlier this week I had a tree mishap where a 12 foot section of tree from a blow down broke off after I made a relief cut and shot at me. I took the full brunt of the tree against the left side of my head. I wound up knocked down and 4 feet from where I had been standing. I sustained a non-life threatening head injury, but no concussion. This would have been much worse had I not been wearing this helmet. The faceshield broke ... read more off, but it can be replaced.

    Great safety equipment
    I bought two Stihl chainsaws and a weed wacker. I was getting hit in the face with debris and it was loud. I bought a cheaper no name helmet and it didn't protect me properly. I returned it and spent a little more on the Stihl and it's been fantastic. I whole heatedly recommend this system.

    Quality Head Gear
    I do professional yards maintenance and I've been using weed wackers for years, I always wear a pair of safety glasses, I can't tell you how many times rocks hit them. However, they do not protect your face and many times rocks have hit my face, and it hurts let me tell you. One time I came back inside after I was done and noticed a blood trail down my face from a rock that had hit. I decided enough is enough. I headed down to my local Stihl dealer here in good oh Washington State and picked up ... read more the Pro Mark Forestry Helmet. I elected to go with the more expensive model because I wanted piece of mind and I also liked that ratcheting tightener mechanism. I have used this several times now to form an opinion. So far, the metal mesh screen shield is keeping rocks and other debris from hitting my face, however, dust still gets through the mesh so continue wearing your safety glasses with this. I was able to easily match my head size with the ratcheting mechanism. Sometimes I will hit my head against a low hanging tree branch, the hard hat has already proved its weight and protected my head. The hearing protection I also love. They are quality NRR 25 rating, perfect for reducing engine noise, they can be folded up for removal, and folded back down to your ears for use. They seem to fit and seal around my ears well, as I haven't had any problems with them. This is quality all around, highly recommended for pro's or estate owners.
