    I wear long baggy shorts here in florida so I have some air flow. Any thing to stay cool.

    I wear shorts unless it's below 50 degrees...occasionally I'll get tagged with something but for the most part I just have grass stuck to me.

    I had the same problem so I got a set of leg chaps from WE Chapps they are the up to the knee with the form pads they are called DELUXE LEG CHAPS I like them but my helper he says they make his legs sweat to much

    If I'm chopping down a bunch a brush I pull out the kid's old pair of soccer shin guards. Works fine and free.

    The WE Chapps work great if you're wearing shorts. Not only do they protect your legs, but since they drape over the top of the shoe, you get NO grass down in your boots anymore. No more green socks.

    Bought the strap chaps last night! I went to the sponsors site here and was ready to buy but there on-line ordering system is for the birds. I was able to find the same ones at the same price at BENMEADOWS.com
    Nice site you may want to check it out.
