Introducing Embers – Winter chainsaw Pants for the Extreme Cold

We know how tough it is working in extreme conditions.

With Zeros, we designed a new generation of chainsaw pants that made working in heat and humidity possible.

There is another extreme. The extreme cold.

Ember – Winter chainsaw pants for the extreme cold.

Winter Chainsaw Pants for the Extreme Cold

Arborists in the colder parts of North America work in temperatures as low as -20 F and some times even colder than that. Up until now, the only option to stay safe is to wear heavy chainsaw pants with thermals underneath. This makes movement difficult.

As a result, we created another new type of chainsaw pant – the Ember. The only winter chainsaw pants designed for the extreme cold.

Embers feature a triple layer, windproof laminate shell that is constructed from a durable 4-way high tenacity stretch outer, a windproof moisture wicking TPU membrane and a warm fleece inner.

Embers are designed to help you stay warm and dry while still delivering full flex and keeping the weight down. They weigh in at just 3 lbs (medium).

Zipped vents can be opened for moisture control when required and closed to keep you warm.

Water resistant gaiters stop snow and cold air from entering at the ankle.

All of this is delivered while improving safety and performance.

Embers exceed US standards for coverage by 15% with ankle to waist protection and outperform the minimum chainsaw threshold speed by 25% (3,500 ft/min v 2,750 ft/min US minimum).

They are also UL Certified to ASTM F3325-20 for Canada, plus they and exceed Worksafe BC Schedule 8-A, section 8.21(ii) with a threshold chainspeed over 3300 ft/min when tested according to ASTM F1414.

Are Embers right for you? Here is a quick summary:

1. Stay warm and dry without a base layer

Ember is the only chainsaw protective pants designed for work in extremely cold temperatures. Usually those who do work in these conditions have to wear layers of clothing underneath their saw pants to help keep them warm. Ember eliminates the need to do this – also increasing the wearer’s range of movement as there is no base layer to restrict them.

2. Ember Outer shell fabric developed especially for Clogger

Windproof Ember laminate shell is comprised of 3 layers including a durable 4-way high-tenacity ripstop nylon stretch outer with a PFC-Free DWR water resistant coating, a middle windproof moisture wicking TPU membrane and warm fleece lining inner to keep you warm when the wind chill bites.

3. FlexZone rear seam construction

Clogger’s unique FlexZone construction reduces the risk of rear seam blow out with the use of lockstitch and flexible materials. FlexZone means that all the components move together and to make the rear seam more durable. Lockstitching means that a break in the thread will only result in the loss of a stitch or two rather than losing the whole seam.

4. Waterproof gaiters

The only Clogger pants to date to feature gaiters. The Ember has waterproof gaiters to keep cold air, snow and slush outside. Where it belongs.

5. Legendary Clogger fit

The legendary  fit you may already be familiar with. Slim leg with plenty of stretch for easy movement. Clogger also includes extra leg length in their climbing pants to allow for knee flex when in a harness. Embers feature a high back for extra warmth and comfort in the harness.

6. Midweight winter pant design

With combining all of the features it was still important to keep the overall weight of the pants down. The Ember is one of the lightest winter chainsaw pants on the market. Enjoy a better working experience with materials that keep you both warm and dry while not being too heavy. Ember delivers the winter experience but is still Midweight with full stretch.

7. Zipped rear vents

The red contrast panels on the vents offer improved visibility in the snow. Being zipped and welted, these vents provide temperature control and moisture management, while sealing wind out when closed.

8. Arrestex HP chainsaw fabric

Be protected with Clogger’s advanced Arrestex HP technical chainsaw fabric with waist to ankle coverage. Proven to be reliable, this protection is also used in other Clogger pants in the range such as Ascends and Zeros. The breakthrough advanced chainsaw protection system has dual-acting, ultra-high tenacity fibres. Arrestex features UHMWPE – the world’s strongest man made fibre – 15x stronger than the same weight in steel. The fibre is woven into the chainsaw fabric two ways providing protection in every direction. Many of the fibres in traditional fabrics are cut if you get a chainsaw strike. With Arrestex HP, most fibres stay uncut, braking and clogging the chainsaw with less material. The result is pants are lighter and deliver better protection.
