Garments that comply with the European EN 381-11 standard provide protection against hand-held chainsaws. The protected area is the upper part of the body. Two types can be distinguished.

The 2 images above depict the design of a chainsaw protective jacket according to standard EN 381-11.
In contrast to chainsaw trousers where 3 designs are possible, there is just 1 design for the conception of chainsaw jackets in order to be conform to the standard.
On both front and backside of the jacket, the standard defines a minimum surface of protective inlay on the shoulders, arms and chest.
On the front side of the sleeves, the protective inlay must cover a minimum of 80% of the total surface and the non-protected surface from the end of the sleeves mustn’t exceed 70 mm.

Chainsaw jackets are more and more used for working on servicing platforms, occasional use of the chainsaw or in exceptional and dangerous working circumstances. Basically, conception is the same as a normal standard jacket, but there is added protection of the abdomen (see picture).
