why do people not wear chainsaw safety gear?
When people are cutting trees down or cutting firewood they never wear any safety gear?
I would think people would wear the following; helmet, chainsaw gloves, chainsaw pants, chaps and chainsaw shirts… I currently use a Stihl 066, Stihl 361 Quickstop and a Jonsered 450. I know how to use a chainsaw. However, you see all types of people not wear protective clothing (Professional & Homeowners.) What are some of the reasons?

i guess they don’t care if they are protected or not.just a guess.

It’s different in the UK. (& you’re on a UK site)!
Professionals do use safety gear. they can be prosecuted if they don’t. DIY-ers don’t know any better mind.

Just like not wearing a seat belt. They think nothing will happen and don’t want to be bothered with the uncomfortably of it and the time it takes to put on.

Because they think that accidents only happen to “the other guy”, or they think that they’ll “jump out of the way” if the saw kicks back – like it takes longer than about 0.2 second for that to happen. I had a table saw kick back a 2×4 and it threw it 25 feet, knocked over a metal shelf unit, and smashed a hole in the drywall. If I’d been in front of it (instead of expecting my pal “Mr. Murphy” of Murphy’s Law to stop by), I’d be dead. Chainsaws, circular saws, routers and rotary tools all need serious respect.
