    I look about as worn out as the old dodge in that pic. The pile of splits that has no home nearly doubled when i emptied the truck.

    Those of you that have to move saws about inside your car, mustang, suv scrounge wagon, truck cab, this sort of thing look ideal surely? its what i'd try if i was doing that (I'm not, i only buck and noodle, only cut at home....the 50m walk up the street wit hthr Swede was the furthest my saws have ever been!)

    That one is a mere £8.19 on Amazon UK....its tempting to get a pair just to cozy my saws up!

    Very hard to tell … even sometimes with it right in front of you! A leaf would help.

    How far are you and Steve from Harrisburg, PA?

    I drove out two weeks ago for a scoring conference for state assessments and REALLY wanted to bring my saws however the other teacher I carpooled with surely would not appreciate the gear in the car as we drove west on the PA turnpike for two hours.

    Very stylin'!

    Not sure how them hold up, or if they are easy to keep clean. 'Camouflages' it a bit too.

    At first, no. As my first helmet it took some getting used to and a while to dial in the fit. I'm still taking it off on hot days (which are few and far between lately) to cool off but it feels more natural now than it did. If on a farm bucking rounds rather than falling, and far away from prying safety-inspector eyes, I'd not wear it. But the last job, felling in clear view of a state highway, it was a must ;-)

    Indeed, at that price I can't imagine its that sturdy, but then if its just to keep a mucky saw from getting a truck cab or car rear seat dirty then it doesn't need to be robust i guess, so long as its not a tight fit and you are careful with any cheap zips.

    looks a good option that philbert. 'fits up to a 359 with 20" bar" so my 365 with 20" won't....ah well.

    Actually, my big concerns about these fabric cases are:
    - keeping them clean;
    - melting from a hot muffler.

    Is that your carry on case for the airport??? I'm sure they would love to have a chainsaw in the overhead!

    We often talk about the old ways... Especially how they dealt with snow. So I thought I'd share this now that it's all but gone. Their is a pull ring on the front. I can only assume the wife was put to harness while the man drove.

    I also was told this may have been for pulling deer home. But I like my version so we'll go with that.

    Don’t know how the ones with a full length zipper work but I bought a TriLink one that only zipped on main compartment and had a fixed scabbard, claimed up to an 18” bar. Hahahaha! I could barely angle a 14” bar into it but the material and workmanship seemed decent.
