Elvex chainsaw chaps meet the requirements of ASTM Standard for Leg Protection for Chain Saw Users (F-1897-2008). This standard requires that the chaps can stop a chain saw running at 2,750 feet/minute tested at both 45 degrees and 90 degrees to the longitudinal axis of the test sample, under controlled laboratory conditions. Compliance tests are performed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) in accordance with ASTM F-1414, Measurement of Cut Resistance to Chain Saw Lower Body Protective Clothing. The performance requirements previously were 2500 feet per minute chain speed.

A completely new addition to the industry leading ELVEX chain saw protection line, an innovative wedge pouch that has been designed to attach to the sawyers belt. There is ample room for two large wedges, one small wedge, a wrench and a chain saw file, all safely within reach of the sawyer in the field.
What is Prolar
Prolar is Elvex brand name for our exclusive chainsaw protective pad. Prolar is not a static product, but is going through continuous development, in order to improve the compromise between performance and comfort. The unique explosive action of Prolar works by jamming the chain against the bar and sprocket. Prolar combines light weight and flexibility for superior user acceptance while providing highly effective protection. Elvex Prolar pads have been tested by Underwriter's Laboratories (UL) for conformance to ASTM F-1897-2008. This test establishes a pass or fail in regards to the 2,750 feet per minute requirement.
