Baileys now sells Labonville chaps. Available in different lengths up to 48" (44" pad). Remember when ordering that chaps usually are not measured by inseam length like pants are.

If its pants and not chaps that you are looking for, Husky pro forest summer pants come in a 34" inseam.   Friends use the summer weight pants even in winter, put on a pair of long johns when it gets cold.  I have not been able to find any pants with a longer inseam as I am 6' 7" and am looking for a 36" inseam  :(

I just bought a pair of full wrap chaps from Labonville they are great. I noticed when I was at the store that they have both summer and winter pants that you can put inserts in.  Another great aspect of the Labonville's are they are made here in NH (we need all the jobs we can get).  Best of luck.

If you use a chainsaw please where chaps or pants. Coworker last week slipped and would have cut through his leg had it not been for the pants.

I have some timber savage, swedepro, and husky pants. And they are nice and I wear them everyday.

Ditto.
I had Husky winter pants. Zipper broke right away, then the material got wear holes all over, and either the insulation or the cut protection material shifted down and bunched up around the knees. I bought Labonville, and have been happy with them.

You know, with all the good press Labonville gets here (between chaps and other logging, forestry gear), it's a wonder they aren't a sponsor. Has anyone approached them?

The day after my saw ate my pants, I Googled "chainsaw chaps".  I found a pair of AOS chaps for about $40 inclucing shipping.  They were too long and the wife fixed that.

I generally work alone, and now never even cut firewood without my chaps on.

My life is more important to me than being hot or uncomfortable.

Labonville has 2-3 types.I bought the ones with 6 layers and they are not stiff like a board.According to their specs mine weight not even 3 lbs.I know in this area any place that sells chainsaws sells chaps for you to look at to see if they are stiff like a board or not.
I noticed the way they size their chaps is from your belt to your instep,meaning on top of your foot.

The Kevlar pads from labonvilles are way better than the nylon ones which are way too bulky. I won't work with out wearing them. The black nylon pants from them are coated nylon and do not breath.So, its like wearing a wet daiper all day if you get warm. I prefer wool pants with kevlar chaps and nokian leather top rubber boots in the winter. Labonvilles will custom make different length pants for you, just call them in gorham nh.

I have been wearing the Labonville full wrap chaps for about 22 years now and will not use any others. They are the best IMO.  I get them extra long because they do shrink in length and I want coverage to the top of my foot. 240b where do you get your nokian leather top boots? I only have two pair left and would like to get more. I can't find them anywhere.
