I just found out about these not so long ago. Someone was replacing theirs and showed what would happen if you sawed into them, basically binding up the chain. Clever!

Chainsaw-yielding arborists

True arborists yield their chainsaws to nobody!

The chainsaw-Wielding arborists I know have had these for years. When I decided I needed a chainsaw of my own, several years ago, one of them refused to show me some chainsaw basics until I had a pair!

Yeah, we have a lot of arborist friends and friends with lots of woodland to maintain and these are fundamental equipment. Anyone who isn’t wearing these should be dismissed from the job; they’re probably not even properly insured or otherwise equipped.
