Keep Your DIY Sweetie Safe

According to Husqvarna, the most overlooked aspect of safe chainsaw operation is appropriate apparel. That includes protective chaps or pants, eye and ear protection, proper footwear, work gloves, and a helmet. Husqvarna's Protective Homeowner Chaps feature a 600 Denier outer Nylon shell, over a layer of Rope-Mali and four layers of Tekwarp protective cloth. The combination of fabrics forms a special weave that jams a chainsaw to a stop if the fabric and tool interact. About $56; Husqvarna
