Clogger, the New Zealand-made brand of chainsaw protective trousers, is venturing into the 'European-style' market with the launch of a new pair of lightweight Type-A chainsaw trousers.
Based on the existing, ever popular, Clogger Arbormax, the Arbormax Type-A trousers have a completely different styling and look.
Clogger have added pre-formed ArmorTex knees and inner gaff guard, a cell phone pocket and zipped openings (with mesh guard to keep the sawdust out) in the back of the leg and well out of the way when wearing a harness.
The waterproof panels to knee height are retained but the biggest departure from the original Arbormax is the lack of chainsaw protection at the back of the calf - this feature is typical of Type-A trousers, front protection only - and may not suit everyone.
Have your say on the design … and be in to win a pair!
Clogger are keen to get input from the tree climbing community before this new lightweight design is 'caste in concrete'.
For those of you who like to 'feel the width' we do have a prototype pair of Clogger Arbormax Type-A on display in the shop where you can fill in the form as well. Offer closes April 30, 2014.
