Arbpro Gamma Chainsaw Pants
- Product Review (submitted on April 24, 2019):
Just got these guys in the mail, and wore them for the first time in the tree today. So, this is an early review- no word on durability.
The fit of these is 'European, form' - my wife commented that they definitely aren't baggy. The fit is sporty, and climbing silvers all day, I appreciate that they really aren't in danger of snagging, and I have a good view of my feet. The material feels heavy duty- this kind of funky, rubberized material at the knee, and ripstop at the shins. Oh, and the kevlar extends up past my thighs, over the pockets, which is quite different from my last saw pants, where the chainsaw protection only extended to just below the pockets.
What else. Yeah, they look really sharp. Feel great. Might be 'warm'- but I live in Ontario and so our summers don't get too, too crazy hot.
Ordered a medium, and I'm a 32-33 waist, and they fit really good that way.
The suspenders (included) are also slick. They zip up in the back - cool, eh? I decided to wear them today, and they felt great. Probably going to leave them on.
So, yeah, let's follow up in 6 months and see about durability. But, these are the bomb. Previous saw pants were SIP and Pfanners. Like these better on first wearing.
