Weed eater chaps?

where is the best place to find those weed trimming chaps to keep your legs from getting chewed up and keep your pants cleaner? Online is fine but would rather find a store here in Kentucky.

This is dirty work. I don't expect to stay clean. I'm not a banker. If I'm not dirty at the end of the day ibdidnt work hard enough. Plus its hot enough, why add more clothes?

BS. Being dirty doesn't prove anything. No need to get whacked in the shins for no reason. Besides, I get plenty dirty from the crap blowing out from under the deck, the BP etc....

My wife made mine out of a set of blue jeans pant legs. They slide on and off in seconds and they keep the gouges to the shins to a minimum and the crap outta my shoes.

Nice, I don't use a bp blower anymore so I've been using the cover for my bp sprayer... works good for that as well!!

I been trimming since 1985 and its part of the job getting dirty I wear shorts Sure chaps would help but wearing nothing makes you a better trimmer helps keeps you from trimming to short I mow 3'' I trim 3''

Like Jim said he is not a banker Me either

Here a pic of me with no chaps Over years your legs gets tuff
