Chain Brakers are designed and manufactured in accordance with the American Pulpwood Association Standard For Leg Protection for chain saw users APA 92-A-12, Revised June 1992, Class A (8F56).
Chain Brakers' extra leg length and flared width exceed the APA Class A minimum requirements, providing added coverage not found in other brands.
Generous sizing and adjustable belting ensure ultimate protection from the critical bladder/groin area down to the top of the foot.
The advanced protection of Chain Brakers begins with its interior fabric. Composed of a superior nylon chain braking material and designed for bidirectional release, this high performance material offers greater braking power with almost half the layers required of other braking materials. The result is a lighter, less bulky pad for more comfortable human protection.
Chain Brakers' outer layer is constructed of 1000 denier DuPont Cordura® Nylon specially treated with a Teflon® coating to repel oil, water and dirt. This tough outer shell helps defend against penetrating rips and tears from thorns and heavy underbrush.
Chain Brakers are launderable and become more comfortable with prolong use and laundering without hindering the performance of the protective padding.
Heavy gauge belting combined with "quick clip" buckles make Chain Brakers a snap to put on and take off. And their lightweight, flexible construction allows excellent mobility and comfort.
