    I used to only wear shorts, until something hit me on both legs leaving small cuts while strimming. The worst part was fighting some type of skin infection on both legs for 6 weeks. Took a major dose of steroids and a large amount of antibiotics to get rid of. I'd rather sweat then go thru that again.

    those pants by magellan also convert to shorts so if you know that you are not going to use a weedeater anymore you can unzip the pants and make them into shorts

    I always wear pants, (woodland BDU army pants), and CAT boots whenever I mow my lawn, or am mowing someone elses. The camo pants are comfortable, if they get grass stains, no biggie as it blends in, and most importantly, they are cheap at any army surplus . I used to wear shorts, but learned my lesson the hard way.... Ever since a friend recommended army pants, that's what it has been ever since. Can't go wrong with them...

    I might of already posted this before. I wear shorts as long as i can. I also love mowing with no shirt. Its one of the main reasons for being in this business for me personally. It gives me a feeling of realxness i can not get sitting inside with a suit and tie all bundled up inside somewhere. Try it you will love it.
