The name of Husqvarna’s ‘Functional’ range of protective clothing somewhat undersells the qualities of the high-specification protective gear lumbered with this modest title. These Functional Waist-Height Trousers, for instance, will obviously fulfil the basic trouser-function of covering your legs and nether regions, but also offer superb protection, comfort and convenience for hardworking forestry professionals working in hostile environments. As such, they are far more than just ‘Functional’.
In fact, given the importance of staying safe while using a chainsaw and the fact that these trousers are certified to offer Type A, Class 1 protection in compliance with the EN381-5 standard, you could even say that these trousers are essential for anyone engaged in prolonged periods of heavy duty cutting work. The Type A, Class 1 rating means that these trousers offer effective protection against chain speeds of up to 20m/s across the front and partially to the left side of the leg, with tough Cordura panels ensuring even greater durability. Despite this toughness the fabric used to make these trousers remains lightweight and flexible, which in conjunction with the inclusion of ventilation zippers at the back of the legs offers exceptional year-round comfort.
Another handy safety enhancing feature of Husqvarna’s Functional Waist-Height Trousers are the reflective ‘Husqvarna’ logo and leg bands, which significantly improve visibility in low light. The inclusion of three zip-up pockets, meanwhile, ensures that you will always have somewhere to securely stow any loose ephemera you need for your working day. Husqvarna’s Functional Waist-Height Trousers are therefore almost as practical for their convenience as they are for the protection they provide, with five sizes available (ranging from 30”-46”) to ensure a perfect fit.
