AT4010(F) Breatheflex Chainsaw Pants Female Design A Class 1 - Pink
All the features from the men's Breatheflex have been carried over to ensure the pants meet the same criteria with the addition of a specialized fit.
Chainsaw pants should be lightweight, comfortable, and breathable while retaining good abrasion resistance.
Incorporating a multi-layered chainsaw shield system with high tenacity polymer for ultimate protection, the Breatheflex range uses the lightest chainsaw stalling system available to promote all day long comfort.
The crotch is made with Kevlar to eliminate ripping and incredibly stretchy fabric that allows for the ultimate amount of movement and flexibility in the tree.
The pants' outer shell is made from Climasphere breathable fabrics which are also highly abrasion and snag resistant. The six-way stretch feature makes for the most comfortable forestry chainsaw pants on the market.
The Design A pants protects the front of the legs only and rated to Class 1 (20 m/s).
Difference between Breatheflex Women's and Men's chainsaw pants fitting:
When it comes to the fit of our women’s chainsaw pants, there are some key differences between our women’s and men’s options. Firstly, the rise of the trousers in shorter in our women’s sizing, meaning they sit lower on the waist which is more flattering for the female shape.
Additionally, the leg shape is more tapered and narrower from the thigh down in women’s sizes, with the leg length being shorter by 3cm than men’s sizes (although we do offer three sizes to choose from).
The hips on our Women’s trousers are also wider to accommodate to female shaping, while the waist is similar in smaller sizes but becomes narrower from size M upwards to fit the female form.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
Reinforced seams at high tension areas: - Stronger build for longer lasting pants.
Kevlar reinforcement at lower leg: - Resistant to abrasion.
Quality YKK zipper system on flies and all pockets: - Zipper system is designed to survive extensive heavy use.
Downward facing Pocket Zips: - Compatible with wearing a climbing harness.
Reinforced lining around ankle: - Reduces wear from boot lace hooks.
Cargo and phone pockets have double fold-over flap: - Keeps dirt and sawdust out.
Elasticated boot lace fastener: - Reduces sawdust ingress into the boot.

I bought a pair of these after a few years in another brand, my old pants were too tight in the butt and I was looking for something with a looser fit. These definitely fit the bill! If you have big hips, thighs, or butt these pants will be super comfy. It was winter when I bought them and they were nice and warm too - I didn’t have to try to squeeze leggings under my pants to stay warm in New England.
Unfortunately now it’s summer and holy moly, I cannot begin to describe how hot these pants are. I swelter in them so badly that some days I want to cry and/or completely change careers. The brand I wore previously were designed for hot weather, these are absolutely not.
That doesn’t mean they’re a bad pant, come winter I’m sure I’ll be thrilled to wear them. But if you live in a hot region be aware that these might not be an appropriate summer pant.
Best pants ever. Love them
