I bought 4 pair of the Stihl ones about five years ago. They were less than 100 bucks back then. No idea what they're now.
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

Stihl has a pricerange in pants from 100-350$ at least in europe. the cheapest are for hobby sawers and casual users. If you use them daily as a professional, believe me you want to by the more expensive ones especialy when working in hot temperatures. there is a big difference between does pants

No hot temperatures here when I am working in the wood. Or otherwise, if it is hot, I am not running a chainsaw.  My saws don't even run then. ;D ;D
Those pants work for me but maybe not for everybody.

Yes they are pro model. Stretch. I found out about them on an arborist forum from Europe.

Lebonville summer pants with snap in pads are very light and comfy.

Having a few nicks of my own and seeing pictures of more serious chainsaw cuts in this forum and during graduate school; I decided to buy a pair of the "lesser" chainsaw chaps from the local Stihl dealer for @ $89.00. I like them for protecting my legs from several occurrences beyond the obvious of cutting chains.

Falls, bumps, being whipped, and it keeps my trousers dryer & cleaner.

All of my nicks and close calls have been from "knee to bar" occurances; lifting my leg to step over  things and making contact with a moving chain....nothing new to the pros I'm sure.

My current saws idle properly and the chains stop, so that helps too.

Now I feel naked without them.  ::)

I bought a pair of the Stein Kreiger pants from Treestuff.com last summer and so far, so good although I have only used them for a few weeks. There is a bit of wear showing, but I love the super light and stretchy fabric in the back and the nomex on the front of the thighs. Also, a cell phone pocket on each leg is convenient. The suspender buttons match the Labonville pants. I try not to cut when it's too hot out, but when I have too, I reach for those.
