About The Bernina – Class 2 Chainsaw Boot

These leather chainsaw boots are renowned for their high-quality materials and safety features including the 200J steel toecap. They are designed for long lasting wear and to ensure maximum comfort even in the most extreme weather conditions making them a fantastic choice of forestry work boots.

Being situated in the foothills of the Dolomite mountains provides Diemme with an ideal testing ground for this superb pair of forestry boots. The Dolomites and Italian Alps are heavily wooded and until quite recently, were managed by the Italian State Forestry Corps.

So, not only are the locals enjoying these mountainous forest regions for pleasure, but they also work there as well. In answer to the many demands of Diemme fans wanting the same performance and quality in their forestry boots as their walking boots, the Bernina chainsaw boots were born.

If there is a single theme running through everything Diemme makes it’s no compromise. And this can be seen throughout the Bernina boot. Leather is tough but very soft bovine suede, specified at 3mm thick. Cushioning around the ankle is padded calf leather whilst a full Sympatex® waterproof/breathable membrane keeps the foot dry in any conditions.

Soling is an antistatic version of the classic Vibram Teton, widely used on our country boots but this time modified to work for forestry boots, allowing the use of climbing irons and crampons. Safety wise the Bernina chainsaw boot sports a steel toecap rated at 200J, non-metallic penetration resistant midsole and aramid fibres providing chainsaw protection at Level 2 or 24m/s chainsaw speed. Bernina is approved to EN20345:2011 Safety Footwear standards with EN17249:2013 Chainsaw approval.

    1. Ian Deare TMIET MIMIT FRSA (verified owner)

      Very good, seem a solid, and well constructed pair of boots, without taking a chain saw to destroy them! Excellent supplier to deal with.

      • Jane Trueman

        Many thanks Ian, good of you to do a review for us, more than pleased you are happy with your boots. Best

    2. Andy Nuttall

      Wow, that’s all I can say about these boots.
      The comfort in these are incredible,
      Right out of the box fit like a glove
      Only thing I’d say is roller bearings for the lacing system would be better, but that doesn’t lessen my rating,
      I’ve had the arbortec, hiax, Stein and these wipe the floor with them

      • Jane Trueman

        Just the best Andy and thank you for your point over the lacing we will certainly look into this. Kindest regards Jane

    3. Paul M (verified owner)

      These are superb boots. Built like tanks. I am a telecoms engineer and climb telecoms masts most days and for anyone who works at height these boots are ideal. Best boots I’ve ever worn for climbing in.

    4. H Maxwell

      Ordered a pair of these last week, I am astounded by the quality of these boots. These have quickly replaced my previous pair and I’ll definitely be back for some walking boots!

      • Jane Trueman

        Hello Harry, Thank you for your note, delighted you are pleased with your Berninas> Best, Jane
