Chaps are not designed to be cut proof but hopefully do reduce injury should an accident occur.
The Elvex Chap, made of Prolar pads, totally amazed me. I have cut into many a chap leg over the years at shows and training events. Some have cut through slightly and some have stopped the saw and didn't cut through. The cut I made this time in the Elvex ProChap stopped the saw with only 3 to 4 of the Prolar pad layers. This combination of woven and felt material is a winning combination!
You should always wear leg protection when operating a chainsaw. It only takes a millisecond to have an accident that can damage you and change life forever.
