I’ve got some stihl ones. I caught my leg years ago so when I saw them I got some. Keep you warm on cold hedge cutting days too

I was cutting a tall hawthorn hedge once and was suddenly blinded by loads of greenfly. I let go with one hand to swipe them away from my face and the trimmer swung round and pinched me on the thigh. I was wearing ordinary bib and brace over jeans and it didn't cut me but I had a big V shaped bruise where it nipped and it was painful for days.

I've worn Stihl brushcutter strides for years; very hardwearing, they last well.  Have they simply been renamed hedgecutting trousers?

The hedge cutter trousers are from memory only been out for 2 years, they are different from the brushcutter trousers.
