Second hand type C trousers!!

Ladies & Gents,

Happy halloween and all that...............

A friend is due to start his 10 week course shortly and a requirement is to provise his own PPE.
He needs a pair of Type C trousers, (pref Stihl), Does anyone have a pair they wish to sell, please??
They need to be in good nick, obviously.
I'm Just going down this line prior to letting him loose in some of the kit retailers we all know and love!!! (times are hard etc etc)!!!!

Re: Second hand type C trousers!!

no man should wear another mans ballistics or should even want to. What happens in there in sunny days is no business of anyone else except the woodcutters wife who will designate a seperate wash during and after the deed is done.

Thats why we put name tags in all of our kit. Even our chainsaw helmets and glove. Nobody wants to share man sweat on a hot day.

Indeed lads, I hear your cries, I tried to expalin this to my buddy, but he wouldnt have it!! So as a good mate I offered to help get him some trousers, and if I get them, I will test run them, and do several squat thrusts and deep lunges!!!

I would not have a problem wearing second hand trousers
As long as they have been washed
rather not wear some ones boots or helmet but can clean a helmet
