Chainsaw work is never a safe task and with it comes the responsibility of ensuring your safety from any harm. When you’re in forestry, you’ll be working with your hands most of the time but you’ll be needing your feet for stability. Without stability, you are prone to accidents, cuts, and even falling. Something you want to avoid as much as possible when you’re on duty. What comes to the rescue is the HAIX® Protector Prime which is a boot designed to give you long lasting comfort while providing you with the protection you need.
Comfort, Safety and Added Visibility
It’s an understanding that the more protective a pair of chainsaw boots is, the bulkier and uncomfortable it can be. Not with the HAIX® Protector Prime Orange. These HAIX® chainsaw boots are as comfortable as can be so you can use it no matter what season or time of day. And with its bright orange hue, visibility is not a problem. Working at night and being effective with your chainsaw is still made possible thanks to these boots. It also features European Class 2 (24m/s) cut protection. Something you want to ensure when you’re working with dangerous heavy tools like chainsaws!
European Cut Protection with Secura Liner® and Two Zone Lacing
European leather craftsmanship is evident when looking at these boots in person. The inner lining of these HAIX® chainsaw boots is secured by Secura Liner® which means that this footwear won’t pull out or wrinkle over time. The added bonus of the two zone lacing makes it easy for you to put on your waterproof HAIX® footwear without any fuss. You can adjust the lacing accordingly so it fits your foot snugly and the lace won’t loosen up even after hours of tension.
Vibram Soles with Ankle Protection
The HAIX Protector Prime makes for the perfect forestry boot for its unbeatable ankle support and protection which helps to prevent injuries. The last thing you want to have is an accident that prevents you from reporting for duty. The sturdy and protective Vibram hiking sole provides long lasting durability and is grip and slip resistant so you remain stable even on the toughest terrain.
HAIX® Climate System with GORE-TEX® Inner Liner
The built in climate system of the HAIX Protector Prime keeps your feet at a balanced temperature at all times whether it’s hot or cold. It keeps your feet warm during cold seasons and cool during hot seasons. The vent holes on top of the forestry boot allows air to circulate inside so the temperature inside is always regulated. And with the 4-layer GORE-TEX® inner liner, your shoes are made to be waterproof, and breathable. Now that’s a boot you can rely on all year!
Rubber Toe and Heel Protection and Quick Drying Capabilities
The HAIX® Protector Prime Orange is protected by an anatomically formed steel protective toe cap certified to ASTM for toe protection. Additional rubber bumpers at the heel and toe area provides an extra layer of protection allowing for a prolonged service life. And because it’s unavoidable not to get hot and sweaty after a long day on a job site, you’ll need to refresh the moisture absorbing insoles every now and then. No need to worry about wearing temporary replacement boots on your next shift. The machine washable and quick drying insole ensures that you have a ready pair of boots to wear the next day.

These boots are the answer to my Arborist, one boot to do it all needs. I have a slender foot, so have always had trouble cinching a boot down on my foot, especially ones with chainsaw protection as that makes them much stiffer. These boots completely fix that. Day two and are starting to feel broke in, really high quality boot. They look like mountaineering/ice climbing boots. Which is cool here in Colorado.
Thank you for your feedback on the Proctector Prime Orange, FS. We are happy to hear that you have a found a high quality boot that serves your needs and that you like the look and design. We hope they continue to serve you well. Stay safe out there.
