Men's Crocodiles™

Style# 61572OR

Like their namesakes, the Crocodiles Gaiters have been around forever. And because they're tough as nails, they've hardly changed: waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX® upper and super-durable Cordura® inner leg and boot cover. The instep strap is now triple-bartacked BioThane® webbing, and an additional tab holds down the front opening, but otherwise they remain as they were when they first appeared. The fitted design and durable, waterproof fabrics are as effective now as ever, which is why the Crocodiles are the world's most popular gaiter.

Best Gaiters I've ever used (Review by Marcus)
Quality

These Gaiters are stellar. They provide protection from the elements where it is most necessary and will keep everything out of your boots. The three layer Gore-tex is hard to beat and keeps the feet dry.

I do have a few nick-nacks that could be improved to make this a excellent product.
1. The draw webbing on the top of the gaiter is very flimsy and will often twist making it hard for the clamp to shut or stay shut. This is not a big deal, but it does create an annoyance having to always spend 5 minutes fixing it every time I put my gaiters on.

2. These are made for some pretty harsh conditions (snow and heavy rain), but I have found that these do not breath very well and if I am wearing a pant that is keeping my upper legs warm, my calves will be burning up, causing sweat and then my legs get wet from the inside. Which contradicts the reason that I wear gaiters (to keep my feet/legs dry).

Over all these are well thought out and I do prefer these over any other type of gaiter. But there could always be improvements.

My experience with these are: Hiking for 3+ years and a 90 day excursion with NOLS. I have mountaineered, hiked, backpacked and canyoneered. They have been put to the test and from all other standards; passed.

Bombproof (Review by Docray)
Quality

I've had the same pair since 1993, and they show almost no signs of wear. I've worn them from Alaska to the Peruvian Andes, the AT to Fiordland in New Zealand, Ice, Mud, Snow, and all the rest you can think of being thrown into.
I always pick these, unless I'm going to the desert in the summer, and they always perform outstandingly.

Super gaitors for a Crocodile (Review by beldarski)
Quality

I no longer go hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing or moutaineering without my OR Crocodiles. These keep my ankles and feet dry in a multitude of conditions. From heavy rainy days in the Columbia river gorge to icy and snowy alpine adventures in the cascade mountains the OR Crocodiles are a "must-have" item for the hardcore outdoor enthusiest. Mud, rain, snow...bring it on...these gaitors will get you there dry. Climb on~

awsome gaitors (Review by rad ray)
Quality

I bought my first pair nearly twenty years ago when i was doing deliveries and got tired of wet feet and pants. I loved them. They became a part of my daily winter wear from then on. Great product. When they finally wore out after almost 20 winters of daily use i was ready to by a new pair. I contacted OR to get a new pair and they informed me of there infinite warranty and shipped me a new pair that day before i even returned my old one. What customer service. I could not be more pleased with the product and the company. I recommend them now to all my friends in the tree cutting industry.

Wyoming Back Country Hunt (Review by Deanm)
Quality

Great Product I wore these Gaiters all week on and off of horses and across streams up and down hills in the snow and mud. I would not take a back country trip without these Crocs with me.
A must for the outdoor person.
