i melted my outer layer on my chaps this past weekend. saw started to run out of gas, my back was a little sore. thought i would take a breather and sat on a log that i just cut, put saw in my lap and started to smell something burning. doh! realized what it was. muffler contacted outer layer,it only melted a small area, kinda turned the fabric into a hard plastic.
I just saw some on craigslist the other day, for $65 new. How much do you pay at the dealer?
New husqvarna chaps in my area, 50 bucks, brand new
Do chaps wear out?
The Husqvarna chaps did, they just ripped one day when I was cutting, never touched them with a saw. Of the two pair I have, neither are the 9 ply.
The big reason was I wanted better protection with the 9 ply.
Just over one hundred bucks, they treat me good at the shop so I get all my cutting equipment through them.
Dont know if 9 will give you anymore protection but bet there going to be nice in the winter!
Let's keep in mind that Zap runs two saws over 100cc and a MS660. Good call on the 9 layers.
Mine (9 layer full-wrap) are hot as hell, looking into something else for cutting during the spring/summer.
They do if they weren't cared for properly.
Labonvilles chaps are full wrap, top rated, Made in USA, and cheaper than the rest.
labonville full wrap is what i have and love them.
Yea I know what he runs. It does not take any more to stop an 880 at 122cc. (Your just clogging it up) Great for those cold days for sure. (Hope those are over for me) Heck I can stop any saw in the cut at will. This is where tuning by ear can really make those long cuts little easier and faster.
I use Labonville full wrap but they're the standard chap not the competition chap. I'm only using a little 346XP though.
