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.

    Don’t leave Home without them!
    Have been cutting wood since 13. I’m 63 and now cut for a hobby! Never would have worn these in my younger days. The chaps protect your legs from briars, limbs and a little softer to kneel if your working a bigger log. Keep you warmer in the cold and don’t notice them in the heat. Keeps my under clothing in better shape. Hope I never have to find out if they “really” work but will never cut without them now that I know all of the other benefits!

    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.

    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 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!

    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.

    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.

    Love the value.
    I bought these as part of a package deal that had protective glasses and a safety helmet with visor and ear protection. These chaps are great. Awesome value and really comfortable I am a decent size guy at 6'2" and 220 lbs and they fully covered my legs despite their one size fits all. The nice thing is they were half the price of more expensive chaps and they are great for casual woodcutters. Also they are lightweight and easily cleaned when they get sweat and dirt on them.

    Warm, but better than the alternative!
    I bought these in the wood cutter bag kit with the helmet, ear muffs and glasses. Good price, they seem durable. In warm weather they're HOT, but that's still a much better alternative than having no protection. Saws are dangerous. As others have said, they need to be washed to work properly, but I couldn't find the washing instructions without searching online.

    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!!!

    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!

    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.
