The Men's Filson Single Tin Cloth Husky Chaps are ultra-durable and will stand up to the toughest conditions in the field. These Filson chaps have heavy-duty snaps and adjustable side straps to keep them secure and comfortable all day long. Bartacking provides extra durability, while the water repellent finish sheds moisture. For added comfort, the husky Single Tin chaps have an extra two inches on the thigh to accommodate hunters with larger legs. Made in the USA, the Men's Filson Single Tin Cloth Husky Chaps protect against water and abrasion and are built for reliable use for seasons to come.
I have had these chaps for 17 seasons now and they are just now staring to show real wear. Keep them waxed and they will treat you right. Multi flower rose and barbed wire are no match for these tough as nails chaps. I use them for running coon and squirrel dogs as well as trapping.
Upland game/bird hunter - great material - not possible to put on without taking off boots - no zipper or snaps to allow chaps to be put on in the field - every chap previously purchased could be put on with boots on. Big disappointment.
Use for cutting wood and upland bird hunting - material seems tough enough - BUT unable to put chaps on without taking off boots - Better design would have a zipper - difficult to put on. All chaps I have had in the past could be put on in the field.
Not able to put on chaps with boots on - need to put on chaps before you leave the house. Amount of wax to be applied to the chaps is insufficient - unable to cover both chaps with amount supplied. Might want to have products tested by people that actually go to the woods.
I live in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain range in Oregon. The weather here can be very wet. I bought these chaps to wear while doing chores outside. I burn firewood for heat and these chaps are excellent for cutting and hauling wood. If conditions are wet, which is often the case, my trousers stay clean and dry. I have other products from Filson but this is my first Tin Cloth item. After using these chaps, I am sure I will be getting more of that line. I have never used a tougher material than Tin Cloth. If you have a tough job to do in inclement weather you cant do better than these chaps for a versatile garment that allows freedom of movement and protection from the elements.
Originally had my mind set on the Double Tin Chaps but decided to try the Single Tins. These things are simply amazing and will hold up to anything you throw at them. They keep the wind and water off, and will protect your legs from the branches, burrs and thorns. They are a breeze to put on and take off with boots on or not. I never leave the house without them.
I live on a farm as well as doing alot of hunting in Northern Mich., Ontario, and out West. These chaps pack very easy, I can literally drive to where I want to hunt, and in a matter of seconds I'm ready to hunt, carry bait etc. I wear them on my farm to carry haybales, handle cattle, etc., these things are tough. I even use them when I'm welding on a piece of equipment. I would highly recommend these chaps to anyone who works and plays hard.
