    I just wear shorts, when I'm trimming where there are stones or debris I just throttle the string trimmer slightly or not at all depending on how much debris and stuff there is.

    I didnt read through this entire thread, but what does "work ON shorts" mean?

    I dont work ON my shorts, I work IN my shorts.. I also wear long grey socks that cover my shins(most of the time). They may not stop theh rock from hurting, but they do stop the rock from cutting me.

    I also do this where I have rock beds or edging the beds. It also helps keeping the chance of flinging a rock somewhere.

    Ok sorry I meant: working "in" shorts.

    And yea, I was using long socks but some times, when im working in areas were are some good size rocks, some times they hit hard,and decide to try something different.

    Wear whatever you feel more comfortable in. Myself and Im sure alot of members on here arre quite use to getting hit in the shins. That leads to tougher skin. I havent been hit in the shin hard in along time. But alot of it you just say a few choice words and move on.

    Wow just remembered.When my parents had the LCO, my brother and I worked for them. My dad(step dad to us) Use to call my brother a sissy boy(they didnt get along) because he use to wear shin guards when trimming and no one else did.. He (LOL) had pretty boy legs.. Long story why I laugh about my own brother. No hes not gay, just alot has happened with him.

    I've always thought about inventing shorts with some sort of breathable netting material extending from the knee area. Then I can take this job and shove it because I'd be rich from selling it to you guys LOL.
