Personal protective equipment is no joke. It is the first and vital step to working safe day in and day out. But, as the name implies, it is personal—personal in choice, fit, and comfort. PPE that is uncomfortable, hot, and burdensome is about as useless as wet toilet paper!
Enter the new chainsaw pants from Notch Equipment—the climbing pants adapted for tree work by tree workers. At a mere 3 lbs they are lighter than most on the market. Constructed of Armortex® abrasion-resistant fabrics featuring DuPont® KEVLAR®, they are as tough as you and your work.
Reinforced at the crotch, knees, and inside the calf, they can handle the sit, stand, climb, cut, squat, and crawl that tree climbers dish out. Wide belt loops and suspender buttons along with really comfortable waist elastic will keep these pants on any arborist—even those who suffer from the all-too-common “noassatall” syndrome.
Angled front pockets have zippers to keep sawdust out or, conversely, to keep it in when you walk through your kitchen because you forgot to close them on the job!
Functional rear pocket and a generous leg cargo pocket, complete with sleeve for your cell also have zippers and/or Velcro. Use both, use one—your choice.
The cuffs have Velcro cinching so you can seal off the tops of your boots to prevent sawdust from getting in.
The abrasion-resistant, two-way stretch fabric in front—and the dirt- and oil-resistant, antibacterial, four-way stretch in the back—work together to cover the eight layers of breathable warp-knitted, type-A chainsaw protection. This gives you the protection you need with the comfort and maneuverability you demand from protective apparel.
