    Looking for some chaps to cover up my trousers/legs when I line trim.

    Anybody use Stihl chaps for this?

    Too funny. I used to have an employee who would wear soccer shin guards all day, talk about a funny tan line. After years of doing this my legs are pretty much scar tissue, so it doesn't bother me. I do still get glass coming out of my leg from hitting a hidden bottle about 8 years ago. I'd rather wear a nose guard to keep those tiny pebbles from slamming right into my brain.

    I don't wear chaps but was thinking about it this summer. I decided to try a stihl brush cutter shroud on my fs-110 because it has a lot more coverage. To my suprise it works awesome, almost no grass or rocks on legs. If I knew I could do this 2 years ago I would have considering the cost $15.00.

    stihl brush cutter shroud

    I've got one of them that came with the brush cutter tri-star blade setup. I'll try that first before I spring for a clothing solution. Thanks for the replies.
