Dirt, mud, oil or any other substances can be removed by wiping the gaiters with a damp cloth. Alternatively, they can be machine washed on a gentle cycle with cold water. Do not use normal detergent, as this can strip the Durable Water Repellent (DWR) layer from the gaiters. Instead, we recommend a technical wash such as Tech-Wash from Nikwax. The DWR will stay intact for up to 50 washes on the Super Armadillo and Armadillo LT models, and even longer for the Super Armadillo Nano gaiters. If you find the waterproofness of the gaiters is waning, we recommend using a waterproofing agent such as the Nikwax TX.Direct® Wash-In or Spray-On.

Please note that where sizes overlap, this is to indicate that discretion is needed to determine the correct size. For the gaiters, the correct size can be dependent upon the individual’s calf size. For the traction devices, a correct fit is largely dependent on what type of shoe the individual will be wearing with the product. For all Hillsound products, we recommend you try the gaiters or crampons on in-store with the shoes you plan to wear them with to ensure you get the right fit.
