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.
