PROTECTIVE clothing and footwear manufacturer Arbortec has unveiled a stylish new range taking its inspiration from the lumberjacks of the past.

Bringing together classic style and latest materials, the Legacy range offers all the expected comfort and safety features of Arbortec’s existing Breatheflex Pro range in vintage blue.

According to Arbortec, its Legacy chainsaw trousers – available in Type A and C – are the first ever denim-style chainsaw trousers.

Produced using strong and lightweight Dyneema, they are designed to keep wearers well protected, yet still allowing the flexibility needed to manoeuvre around the job site and canopy of a tree with ease.

The trousers feature an incredibly resilient and abrasion-resistant panel on the front and ankle of the trouser. The material is woven with Kevlar fibres and makes it extremely tough when getting bashed and scraped on trees and debris every day.

The crotch is made with Kevlar to eliminate ripping and an incredibly stretchy fabric that allows for the ultimate amount of movement and flexibility in the tree.

The liner offers unrivalled comfort and also ensures sawdust doesn’t get in the material on the inside legs of the trousers.

Forestry Journal:

The Breatheflex Pro jacket is designed for long work shifts in the cooler months of the year. The lightweight, breathable, shaped elbows and abrasion-resistant fabrics give increased mobility.

The range is available now from a variety of retailers.
