You only need a vice to hold the middle of the chainsaw and a chainsaw sharpening file which is a round file. It is what we use, but you do need to know how to use them properly, otherwise all the other kit is probably the best bet. I assume by now that you know what you are doing as you have all limbs and digits intact.

I really like the roller guide. I think I've used it enough that I know have a better chance of freehand sharpening successfully, should I need to.

I've never used a voice on the bar, but my Husqvarna is pretty heavy, and doesn't really move about on me that much when I sharpen.

i have a vague idea and all my limbs, making every tooth the exact angle is much easier with the clamp guide thing

for many tools i use some sort of honing guide, even if it is my hand pressure along the bench or blade

for any sort of saw i need a guide or a very long time and maybe a new saw blade
i can just about manage a carpenter's cross-cut freehand(plenty of practice) but owt else needs a guide or a mr man and his magic machines

double on that for chainsaw chains, especially if adjusting them to the timber being cut
my tutor made quite a point( ) of using the correct profiles for the job (cherry is different to larch etc) and regular setting for a clean, safe, effective cut does make life easier and longer for machine and user

ps in extremis, rip cut a vertical slot into a convenient stump, add two small two twig wedges= woodsperson's filing bench with a vice and the only sharpening tool needed is a file

In the woods, as you say, improvisation is the key. Most saws are heavy enough to stand stable, but better to clamp them in some way if possible.
