Arborists are expected to work in environments which experience extremities of weather. In fact, some arborists consider pushing themselves in extreme conditions as proof of their toughness and ability. Wearing hot chainsaw pants and chaps historically has been part of the challenge.
However, during the summer months, the temperatures experienced may present a clear and present danger to the arborist.
Even in the colder seasons, in locations not normally associated with high average temperatures, the effect of heat can be both significant and pronounced.
It’s been a few months since we launched the Clogger Merino Arborist Clothing line starting with the 175 Base Layers. It is time to let everyone know how much people are loving them as well as explain the products in detail and give you advice on how to get the most out of them.
25 years ago, the first Clogger chainsaw protection product was produced.
And just to top it off, we recently made our 500,000th product – a pair of Zero chainsaw pants!
Starting with simple products made from basic materials, Clogger has evolved into highly technical apparel platform with one of the largest range of chainsaw protection products globally.
We thought that this was an excellent time for a bit of a review of Clogger including key milestones and a little of the Clogger back story. We’ll also give you a hint as to what the future might hold.
