Zero Gen 2 Light and Cool Men’s Chainsaw Trousers

NZD $372.00

The first generation of the Zero has been a game changer for the industry. The first lightweight, cool chainsaw trousers. With Zero, you don’t sweat in all day long when you are climbing.

The new Zero does the same as his older brother. But better.

Like the original, it embraces your movements: you are able to stretch, climb and jump freely. With the Gen 2, you don't have to be as worried about tears and rips – the outer fabric of the garment been reinforced! Of course, Zero's fit and style stays the same. You will look good in the trees… or in the ground!

    I ordered a custom size from my local shop. Best gear decision I’ve made in a long time. I’m a 6’9″ arborist and the fit/finish on these is incredible. Well done!

    It used to be that you had to make a compromise between freedom of movement & durability when selecting chainsaw trousers.

    But Clogger have somehow managed to successfully navigate between those two extremes. The result is a product that is close fitting, highly functional & a pleasure to wear in hot & particularly humid environments.

    I wouldn’t consider climbing in anything else currently on the market.

    These pants are all business up front and party out back.
    Serious cut protection but my backside feels naked.
    By far the most comfortable pant I’ve owned.

    Would have given 5 stars except for the durability is still not there. Exceptionally lightweight, breathable, well fitted, flexible, comfortable, good pocket design, and sweet looks. The trade off for all those things are durability. Even with the new upgraded fabric you need to be aware of what you are muscling through while walking. Overall a great buy if you are looking for a refreshingly comfortable and cool trouser.

    I’ve been wearing the zeros since they were released, as well as 7 of my crew members, best chainsaw pants ever! Now have the Gen 2’s and are amazing ! I highly recommend them to everyone!

    My crew and I love these pants! We all have a few pairs each that we rotate every few days or until they need washed. The pants fit me perfectly and are very flexible. They breath pretty well and are a great all season chainsaw pant. As for duribility, we have had no issues other than a few small punctures in the outside layer. I found some great adhesive patches to prevent the punctures from spreading further. The internals of the pants were not affected. I’m looking forward to picking up a couple more pairs soon! See y’all at TCIA!

    I gotta say these fit way better than the first gens and still just the lightest and coolest chainsaw pants on the market. Looking forward to buying more soon.

    I can’t say how much I appreciate these pants. Literally, would wear them almost all the time, but my wife would be annoyed to the point that the my lifestyle would suffer. I am a full-time line clearance arborist along with instructing our apprentices part time, and the changes made from the Gen 1’s are exactly what needed to happen. They remained every bit as comfortable, and increased the durability by approximately 182.5%. I have owned and several other brands, some of which I like a lot, but nothing compares to a safe climbing trouser. Seriously, stay safe, climb right, and buy these!!!

    And if you are doing uber-brushy ground work, buy a pair o’ trousers designed for that. These were made for climbing arborists. Don’t go 4×4’ing in sport’s car, and vice versa.
