Husqvarna Technical Forest Chainsaw Jacket

  • Product Details

    Key to making protective gear suitable for professional forestry workers is finding a good way of balancing durability and flexibility; obviously you need something tough if you are going to be working for prolonged periods in hostile conditions, but when deep in the woods or in other challenging environments mobility is equally important. Luckily, Husqvarna’s superb Technical Forest Jacket has been specifically designed to offer high levels of protection and comfort without slowing you down, thus allowing you to work safely and efficiently with even the most difficult cutting work.

    This jacket, for instance, stands out from otherwise similar attire by being made from a clever four-way stretch material which provides a tight fit (thus removing the risk of loose fabric getting caught) along with enough flexibility to ensure complete freedom of movement. Aramid and Cordura reinforcement on critical areas, meanwhile, provides the durability required when taking on heavy duty cutting work. To further ensure your safety, moreover, the jacket also features reflective strips and ‘Husqvarna’ logos which improve visibility in low light conditions, along with Velcro fastenings at the end of the arms to prevent the cuffs from catching in machinery.

    As long days out in the woods can be hard going, however, the good people at Husqvarna have also done their best to make this jacket as comfortable as can be. In addition to the high quality materials, for example, it also features an open back and underarm ventilation zippers to help you stay cool in hot weather, while easy adjustment of the waist and bottom of the jacket ensures a perfect fit. Available in five sizes to suit your requirements (ranging from 36”-54”), Husqvarna’s Technical Forest Jacket is therefore a great piece of kit for any forestry professional.

    Make sure you are using your chainsaw safely and read our free advice article when you have a spare moment.

    About Husqvarna
    Believe it or not, Husqvarna did not start off by manufacturing any type of garden machinery at all. Instead they were established in 1689 as a weapons foundry supplying the Swedish Armed Forces. During the subsequent years, diverse and varied products have been produced, from sewing machines and cast iron kitchen equipment through to bicycles and motorbikes. It wasn't until 1959 that Husqvarna finally made its first chainsaws and engine-driven lawnmowers. The company's reputation for build quality and durability of product has never been in question. This is probably the reason for their line of professional petrol chainsaws being so popular with forestry workers across the globe.

    Husqvarna are not afraid to innovate either, introducing the robotic, solar powered Automower® in 1995 and continually looking to improve their existing products by listening to their customers. Jumping onto the grass recycling bandwagon, they also manufacture some of the best mulching lawnmowers available, incorporating Bioclip® technology into the vast majority of their petrol lawn mowers. Be left in no doubt, if you buy any product from the Husqvarna garden machinery stable, you will be buying into Swedish quality that is built to last.
