I wouldn't say they are the coolest available but they are a good compromise between being tough and light, unlike other gladiators they aren't coated with the anti oil dirt repellent coating so it's more breathable they dry quick too it's rained for almost a week straight here

Just found this thread,spent some time looking on internet, to find what PPE was sold in hot climates. Did not find anything! ( do they bother?). I did find an American site that had a big thing about 'snake protection chaps & boots', and some sort of vest with ice in to wear to keep cool!

Not too sure those vents would be a good idea in Kielder with the midges around, fed up with 'cooking' in a pair of Sthill Highflex every time temperatures get into high 20's.

Had a days work today with my Stihl Hiflex type C that was in the shipping sent over from our house in the UK. Way, way to hot, and its winter here!! will be getting some cooler ones very soon. Maybe have a look at those Stretch Air ventilation ones. Will probably get them shipped over from FR Jones as there a little bit on the pricy side here in NZ.

i wear "Stretch Air Gladiator cool"...they have ballistic material on the front and zippers on the rear over the back of the leg....the highest temperature i,ve worked in over so far this year was 28 degrees...they have removable gators and with the zips open i was quite comfortable...thery are the most comfortable chainsaw trousers i,ve worn..had about six pairs of hi flex (Never again) too hot and wear out quickly..Pfanner stretch airs are super strong great to climb/work in and the vents cool you down as you move...Highest quality Austrian Kit Bro!

 

Hi fella, going to get some stretch air sent over from the UK but the sizes seem a little strange, in jeans I'm a 36, in my Stihl Hiflex I'm an XL and that a little bite loose but fit ok,

Just don't want to balls it up and have to send them back to the UK, any suggestions on sizes?
