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.
Excellent product. I have used these for both walking in and snowshoeing and for bird hunting. I am glad I got the large as over a jean type pant anything smaller would have been a challenge to get on for shin diameter. Very pleased.
Hi Douglas, thanks for taking the time to leave us a great 5-star review! We are glad to hear your gaiters have been extremely useful in your outdoor adventures so far. We hope you continue to get tons of use out of them.
I’ve had many different brand gators outdoor research and others these are by far the best! Love the heavy duty material.
Hi Adam, thank you for the awesome 5-star review! We really appreciate it. Happy trails!
Love the fit on these. They're snug (without being constricting), stay up easily, and I still have dry socks after a weekend in the mountains!
The only thing I will say it that it can be finicky to connect the zipper when wearing gloves, but aside from that getting them on and off is a cinch.
Great design! Just remember to size appropriately if you're putting them on heavier mountaineering style boots vs hiking shoes.
I love everything about these gaiters except the room in the calf muscle area. I am almost 6 feet tall & even naked, I cannot get them to wrap around my calf, let alone zip them up. With mountaineering boots and pants, I would like the XL size to give 2-3 extra inches......then we are all good to go. Thanks for listening. ;)
