Husqvarna protective wear: Materials handpicked for protection and flexibility

At Husqvarna, we’ve worked hard to learn what defines comfort in professional forestry and logging, how it can be improved, and what type of comfort is needed in each part of your workday.

The materials used in Husqvarna protective clothes have either been developed by us, or handpicked and put through numerous tests in our lab and in the forest to make sure they make the cut.
