There are two different types of chain saw chaps: apron chaps and full-wrap chaps. Apron chaps only protect the front of your upper leg, while full-wrap chaps wrap around the lower leg to protect the rear calf region as well.
To ensure your chaps fit properly, make sure the bottom of your chaps come down to the top of your work boots.
You’ll also want to make sure that your chaps meet international safety standards. Oregon’s apron and full-wrap chainsaw chaps conform to ASTM F1897-08 and are UL classified.
If your chainsaw chaps have sustained saw damage, they should not be used again and should be replaced.
