Chaps and Protective Gear
« on: April 04, 2020, 04:56:03 pm »
Was not sure where to post this, but good technical information on the differences between European, US, Canadian, and other chaps / pants standards.
Also good technical information on choices made when designing these products.

From Clogger, a NZ based manufacturer goclogger.com

Here is the one on chaps design; factors including cut resistance of fibers, how they are oriented, bulk issues, etc.

European Chaps Classifications

EN standards have 3 ratings for the coverage of protective material ('A', 'B', 'C'), and 4 ratings for chain speed ('0', '1', '2', '3').
I am unable to attach the full file here, due to its size, but copied the information from the site below, which includes helpful illustrations:
