Performance Zip Chap
Durable, wrap-around protective chaps, great for daily chainsaw use.
When you need dependable, long-lasting protective apparel, STIHL has the solution. Using rows of heavy-duty zippers, the Performance Series Zip Chaps provide full wrap-around protection for a user’s lower leg area. The zippers run along the entire inseam of the chaps, helping to ensure a comfortable fit that is easy to put on and/or remove. The outer material is crafted from durable orange Cordura® nylon fabric, an all-weather material used in a range of premium outerwear brands. Inside, the chaps feature 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. They are great protective chaps in both the heat of summer and the cold of winter.

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.
