      i have seen a leather aprin that splits and snaps aroulnd the legs, top 1/2 (to the knee) only. and it seems like i saw a set of chaps at my LWS. be worth looking into. i think i would buy 2 aprins and make a set of chaps out of them befor spending $300 on a set.
      thanks for the help

                    I was welding on a rusted up truck (90% rust, 10% metal) for a friend trying to patch some holes in the frame. Needless to say the Mig did not like all those wonderful oxides and was spitting fireballs everywhere. I was partially laying on my side when a BIG hunk of burning metal/rust landed in my ear, burnt the earplug and left a burn on my ear as well. Without the earplugs It is very possible I would be totally deaf in one ear.

                    Of course you should always wear earplugs to protect your ears from loud noises, but that is a different topic...

                      ear muffs may be bulky but they wont melt like ear plugs, i just take a piece of cheap fyresafe welding coat that was in rags and tape it aroun the back of my hood does pretty good at keeping stuff out.
