    Are there any Tree House discount codes still active with Tree Stuff?

    Well I got my Clogger Zero Gen2 s...XS, they are too big!!
    Too long and baggy in the legs, waist is only just snug, and I'm losing the Christmas excess...
    Will try XXS
    Keep smiling, they will wonder what you're up to...

    Fiona, consider keeping the somewhat too large, if you can get the length tailored to fit. Then leave the waist loose, no belt, and use suspenders. You may find as I have that this arrangement is the coolest for cut-proof pants, by allowing some body heat to vent upwards and out.

    Just an idea...but it works a treat for me in warm weather.

    I remember talking about my preference for baggy chainsaw trousers, Burnham hisself made the point (which always stuck with me) that the chain could pull the loose leg of the trouser around and therefore attack the unprotected rear of the leg.

    For that reason they should be snug.

    The other issue about baggy waists and braces is that when climbing and using the saw the trousers tend to fill up with dust/shavings, always unpleasant.

    Fair points. Though I don't recall having spoken to the risk of loose pants re the saw...

    Both valid posts, thanks.
    The new cloggers are really thin, so I'd like them to be more snug, they have vents behind the knees so a loose waist isn't as necessary for heat management, oh the drama to find the perfect fit!

    I distinctly remember it being you, I’ve been wrong before of course.

    Good advice nevertheless.

    I remember it being about CHAPS...full wrap vs less than full. The less than could be dragged in by the saw and possibly expose the leg to the chain.
