    I've been querying past month or two and came across a couple of sites that had decent deals . . thought the products and prices were good, but always interested in a better product & price . . . (and when the heck is that tax return coming, ha ha)

    Helmet system
    http://www.labonville.com/shop/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=47&idproduct=125
    ($23 wow . . .a lot better than $48 I have seen in local stores, appears this has all the essentials)

    Chainsaw Gloves
    http://www.amickssuperstore.com/Husqvarna_Soft_Leather_Gloves_p/husqvarna leather gloves large.htm
    ($25 including shipping)

    Kevlar Lining for boots (for those who already have steel toes but no ripstop)
    http://www.labonville.com/shop/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=129&idproduct=81
    ($36, Labonville dropped these from line for a while but then starting getting a lot of calls for them)

    Matterhorn boots
    http://www.vtarmynavy.com/matterhorn-boots.htm
    Model 12900 is $216, this is the one with meta-tarsal guard

    Looks like some good deals. I havent used the chainsaw gloves , Kevlar lining booties or that brand of helmet so no good input from me there.

    Now i do own the Matterhorn boots but the one i own are all leather vs the leather combo. The posted boots do have the Steel Toe, Stainless Steel Bottom Plate and Internal Metatarsal Guard and is a great system and the boots fit great.

    I bought a very similar looking setup from Baileys, for about that much. The helmet itself is standard and presumably meets whatever specs apply. The rest is extremely cheap plastic and (easily) broke on assembly. I still need to do some mods to get the face-shield mounted, as the little tabs they provide just fly off. Needless to say, I won't trust the face shield to actually protect me from anything.
