What would you wear to keep your hands safe while using a chainsaw to cut down trees in 21 acres of forest?
We recently sent a pair of our Endura® high-visibility vibration-dampening chainsaw gloves to Chris of Damn Yak, who was looking to do just that.
These gloves offer a variety of advantages and different types of protection.
But the reason we like to brag about them is because of the fact that they feature eight-layers of chain-arrest woven Kevlar® on the back of the left hand.
It’s designed to withstand a chainsaw running at 3140 feet per minute.
Here’s what Chris had to say about them.
“With these Endura® chainsaw gloves you can feel reassured knowing that you will have the protection you need… When you need it.”
A few weeks back, he took the gloves for what he called a “field test”, and wrote a wonderful, in-depth review over on his blog. Here’s a snippet:
“The anti-vibration pads were quite helpful, as after the second 7-hour cutting day my hands felt normal. I am sure you would get more protection out of a dedicated anti-vibration glove. The Endura® is a healthy median. No buzzing or numbness from the saw being in my hand all day.
The gloves leather palm also was great as a general work glove, moving the felled logs, gripping them when wet and dry. I never felt as if the glove was sliding off or I was going to lose my grip.”
