    We have a safety section, may as well have a review thread for stuff.
    What works for one, may not work for another, so keep that in mind.
    But a turd is a turd no matter what.

    Helmets, chaps, pants, gloves, boots, whatever.


    I got these a couple week ago.

    Verratti primo. I got them from my Snap-on tool guy, $15ish.
    I see they have them on Amazon as well.

    The harder foam outlining the inside of the lenses is nice. Does not dig in.
    It does not create an airtight seal to your face, but I did not note anything getting behind them either in 4 hours of use.

    The adjustable strap to keep them on your noggin is decent and does its job.
    I must have a funky shaped head, as the strap wanted to slide down, but it did not move the glasses on my face or cause discomfort.

    The arms are pliable, dont dig in behind your ears.

    It was about 20 degrees out. I did not experience them fogging exactly, but moisture did collect on the lenses, evident in 1 pic.
    I may try giving them some anti-fog coating or a swipe with something like a Rain-x cloth or the like.

    Overall, one of the most comfortable pair I have worn, and I have worn many.
    The consensation was a bummer, but still fared better than most others I have tried.

    So far, I would give them an B rating based off others I had had over the years.
    If they didnt get the moisture, I would give them an A+.

    This may very well be exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks. I'll get a pair and let you all know what I think.

    Just to update on them, no issues whatsoever.
    Now that the temp has come up into the 30's, and 40's, no fogging or moisture build up on the lenses to report.
    Still very comfortable to wear.
    I have dropped them a few times, and had chips and other flying debris hit them with no ill effect.

    I ended up buying another pair to replace my work safety glasses as well.

    I figure I now have spent enough time with these Husqvarna technical chaps I can post some feedback on them.
    20190511_191849.jpg

    The good: adjustability. I have worn these in temps down to -15F. They fit over 2 base layers, jeans and insulated Carhartt bibs. The lower straps just fit over my LaCrosse pac boots.
    They also adjust to fit over just jeans comfortably.

    The pocket has a snap closure. Fits my cell phone just fine along with a carb screwdriver. I keep my phone there as it's easier to get to, you wont get into your jean pockets with these on, in case something happened.

    They are holding up quite well. Lots of thorns, brush and the like has done nothing to them.

    The ok: the wedge pocket. You can stuff 2 in there. If your standing you dont notice them. If you have to bend or crouch, you do.
    It does hold the wedges secure though. 2 snap closure on bottom, which is nice as it does fill with chips depending on how your cutting.

    The bad: nothing really. They are a bit warm in higher temps.


    As far as stopping the chain goes, I have no opinion to offer, and hope I never do.

    I want to say these were $80? Or so off Amazon.

    All that being said, I am satisfied with them and would purchase again.
