• Hey Guest,
    Just a heads up, The Tree House will be unavailable for about 10-15 minutes starting at 5pm CST tonight. This is just a super quick maintenance period.

    Thanks!

It seems like most are migrating to pants. I can’t see using them for my style though. I climb in Wrangler outdoor pants- awesome stretchy fabric and zipper pockets. In warmer weather, I prefer to remove chaps when not cutting. There isn’t a discipline issue with putting them on so I may never wear the pants.

Clogger zero are the lightest and coolest for warm weather. I could use a little more room in them though...
I really like the Arborwear Ironwood for cooler weather. They still have vents if it warms up a bit. They're cut much more like regular pants and fit me better. They have come out with a lighter, summer weight pair now (dogwood?). I'll probably buy a pair in the spring.
My favorite are the Pfanner vents, not the gladiator ones. Just impossible to get and a bit more than the others.
I can't be bothered to put a pair of chaps on, plus the extra bit of padding with spurs on is great for long days.

I just got two pairs of clogger zero gen 2’s. I got two pairs of the black and red elevated edition. I went up a size and had the pants hemmed up. Been great around here above 40 Deg F. But with the upsize I can fit my thermal pants underneath so I’m good year round now.

1. Chainsaw pant are not meant to be worn in spray-on size ie skin tight.

2. How thick are your thermal pants?

I already owned the orange pair of them. I was between sizes with a 31x30 frame but due to too much gym activity my thighs and butt made the extra small fit tight. They didn’t look bad but I blew the crotch in half 6 months into owning them. So I gave them to one of my guys that are skinnier. Even the xs was too long so this time I bought small and had them hemmed. They fit amazing and my girl says my butt still looks good in them 🙃 I have a lot of different weights of thermals but there all like an under armor compression fitting, close to skin if not skin tight
