What are gaiters and why should you use them?
The goal of gaiters is to protect your lower leg from external conditions. Depending on your environment and activity, gaiters help protect you from various aspects. Anytime you need to protect yourself while walking through the unknown, having gaiters on can help minimize risks from the elements.
Just what I needed. Headed overseas for a hunt in some varied terrain.
Thank you for the review! We're glad to hear that you're happy with the quality and attention to detail of the Armadillo LT™ gaiter. We're excited to see how it performs overseas during your hunt.
I use them during dog training, AKC field trials AND hunting. I have used various brands. These have been the best for durability and even water resistance for my boots and lower legs. They also are not too warm in moderate temps. Bought a second pair. Also had 2 friends each buy a pair. Nice durable zipper and boot strap. I walk on gravel and rough terrain and through briars. One year of HARD USE has not even shown any wear on my first pair. The large pair fit nicely and it seems the sizing chart is accurate. Just make sure to measure the circumference with your boots on as a double check on the size/measurement guidelines.
We're glad to hear that our Armadillo LT™ gaiter is holding up so well and that it's been helpful for dog training, AKC field trials, and hunting! Thank you for the great feedback and for your sizing recommendation for our customers!
Good fit, I have not put them to a test yet but they seem to be good quality.I really like them, shipping was fast and that is always a plus!
Thanks for the positive review! We're happy to hear that the gaiters fit well and that you're happy with their quality. We hope you put them to a test soon!
I have purchased the Armadillo LT Gaiter. Fortunately I did a fit check before reaching the trail head. The LT will not fit over my Oboz 10" winter hiking boot. The height of the boot adds girth to the shin area, where there is insufficient volume in the gaiter to allow for movement. It was difficult to zipper the gaiter closed. Once zippered closed there was no room for flexibility. I had the under foot strap extended out to the further most position. Note that this is a size 12 boot, it may fit on a considerably smaller size boot.
We're sorry to hear that you had difficulty fitting the Armadillo LT Gaiter over your Oboz winter hiking boot. Our gaiter is designed to fit a variety of boots, and we recommend trying it on before you head out on the trail to make sure it fits well. If it doesn't fit, you may want to consider exchanging it for a different size. We hope this helps!
I used this product for the first time this year upland bird hunting in the Dakotas and Eastern Washington.
This gaiter is amazing. I have tried many others and this is simply the best.
These gaiters performed as advertised. If I ever need another pair I will just get this product again.
It states to hand wash, when back from an excursion chasing upland birds I simple put them
in the wash with other like clothes and wash. I do not put them in a dryer, just hang to dry.
Holding up just fine.
Well done "Hillsound"
