Tester required - Husqvarna chainsaw trouser

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

Husqvarna have kindly given us a pair of their new Chainsaw protective trousers to review.

 

If you are interested in reviewing them for essentialARB, please email me on margaret@essentialarb.com, giving your full name, details of the type of work you are involved in, and the size you would require.

 

We would need a written review for the July issue issue of essentialARB - so deadline would be 21 June. We would be looking for at least 500 words, and high resolution images of the trousers being worn at work.

 

I have copied the product description below:

 

Chainsaw Trousers – Technical 20C

These trousers have just been launched, offer the highest level of protection and are perfect for regular chainsaw users where extra safety is of the utmost importance. They cover the whole leg all the way around and are lighter and more comfortable due to a unique 4 way stretch material. This stretches in all directions providing freedom of movement and high durability. The extended back has a wide elasticated band for extra comfort and support. The entire garment is reinforced on the front and back of the leg with Cordura and Aramid for extended durable wear. These fabrics are known for their versatile and reliable qualities and Aramid is known to be a class of heat-resistant and strong synthetic fibers. The trousers are lined with mesh material for added comfort and ventilation. There are also two useful front and two back pockets, all with zip fastenings.

The extended back panel is vibrant orange to provide better visibility.

 

Available in Small, Medium, Large, X Large

and retails at £214.99

 

thanks

 

Margaret

To answer the above questions (hopefully!):

 

We are looking for someone to test the trousers in a working situation, whether that be climbing or on the ground

 

With regard to the review itself, the chain protection afforded by the trouser will have been tested during the manufacturing process; if you want to check whether they will stop a saw that is entirely up to you - but I'm not accepting any claims for personal injury :-). We are looking for comments relating to the type of questions you yourself would ask if you were considering a new pair of chainsaw trousers, or any PPE for that matter. Areas such as the ability to avoid snagging/tearing etc (ie avoidance of sharps etc); comfort/movement; weatherproofing/protection from the elements; ventilation and of course, price.

 

If you usually wear a different brand a comparison between the two would be acceptable.

 

And finally - yes, you do get a free pair of trousers for the review!
