Pro Chainsaw Wrap-Around Chaps
These chaps are a must-have for anyone who uses a chain saw, even if you aren't a professional woodsperson or don't have 6 cords of wood to cut for the winter. They are designed to unravel into the saw and stop the blade before it cuts your leg.
I've seen them displayed at a tractor store with the material tangled around the chain bar as a frightening way of encouraging people to wear their safety equipment. (The guy was okay, thanks to his chaps).
The bright orange color is another safety feature so you can be spotted easily by hunters or emergency personnel. This is a bargain at $62.75, especially with the high cost of prosthetics these days.

You should see our neighbor use a chainsaw, it's a wonder he still has his limbs and face! He holds a branch in midair like a salami and whacks away at it, when surely he could break the darned branch over his knee or use an axe. One kickback and he'll cut his own head off. If it happens, I'll let you know.
