Apron Chaps – 6 layer
These chain saw protective apron chaps are durable and lightweight and feature six layers of Engtex® cut-retardant materials.
Apron Chaps from STIHL are made from rugged, 400-denier nylon and feature the same UL® classified protection as our other chaps. Just snap them over your pants and you’re ready to go. Sewn into the legs of the chaps are six layers of Engtex®, a cut-retardant material designed to clog the sprocket and stop the saw chain on a gasoline-powered chain saw in case of accidental contact with the rotating saw chain. The open-back design of these chaps makes them a great choice for hot working conditions. STIHL chain saw protective apparel is also wash and wear, unlike some other brands that require dry cleaning or light surface cleaning.
Available colors: Orange, Black, Green Camo, Orange Camo
Available lengths: 32", 36"
NOTE: Chaps are measured by overall length from the waist down. STIHL chaps have a tough outer shell of oil/water-resistant nylon, treated with rain/stain repellent.

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 chain saw sprocket and similar factors. Follow the washing instructions. Improper care may destroy cut-retardant properties of the material.
The fibers will not stop the sprocket on most electric chain saws because of their constant high torque. 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.
