Loving them--Flex-Tex II Gaiters

I picked up Flex-Tex II Gaiters for travel walking trips, trail running, winter running (snow), and the like. Specifically I looking for a lighter weight option than my full height gaiters that would still be very functional. Loving the Flex-Tex II Gaiters.

These gaiters are fantastic. They are nicely form-fitting, functional, weather-resistant and comfortable.

Great equipment!

I use these mostly for hiking and field time. They've been great when I haven't needed a over the calf length gaiter.

One season gaiters, possible design issue.

I like the gaiters which is why I purchased them. The fit and flexible design is the best I have found for hiking and backpacking use over my boots. Not too high, not too low. LIght and offers good coverage to the front of the boot. Only the instep strap which is the fluorescent color strap that goes under the boot eventually tears then degrades and then breaks. My new pair wore out after one season of normal usage. I have yet to find a suitable strap or fit it to act as a replacement strap. So the choice is to keep purchasing a new pair or look for another tool

Excellent, with one exception

Took these news gaiters out for a week in the Shenandoahs, and they shed water, mud and all sorts of trail debris. HOWEVER, the shoelace clip is metal and was pushed closed so it wouldn't grab a shoelace to keep the toe portion down. When I tried to gently pry it open, the clip broke off. I will be returning these for something that works properly.

I wore these everyday for a week in the Sierra. They preformed well. No problems at all. The gaiters kept my socks and shoes clean.

Perfect gaiterd

Perfect! I have a pair of expedition crocodiles and they are great but too heavy. I wanted a pair of gaiters to use for snowshoeing and winter SAR work and these are just the ticket. I prefer non waterproof everything when it's really cold and I'm active. I run hot so I want my stuff to really breath. (It's got to be really messed up for me to put on my hardshell, my Ferrosi Hoody is my shell 90% of the time). Anyway, I wanted a water resistant gaiter to keep the bottoms of my pant from snagging on my snowshoes and crampons and these are perfect. If I'm in the snow and not wearing my Cirque pants I have these on.

Will the S/M size work with a women's 8.5 shoe? The specs say 4-8 for the S/M. I do not see just a Medium that would work with a size 8.5.

Hi Caleb, The size S/M will fit a Women's 8.5 shoe. Thanks for contacting OR,

What is the best light weight gator for backpacking (mens) to keep bugs from biting right around the sock line on calf? Looking for something for my husband - he gets eaten up around the top of his socks. 6'1. size 13 shoe.
