- Trail running essential (Review by Dr. Paul)
The Sparkplug gaiters are perfect for trail running, and for hiking on hot dry days. I have size 9 feet and use the smaller size with my running shoes (qualified for the Boston Marathon on a dirt rail trail with these puppies), and have the larger size to use with my low top hiking shoes. They are extremely light and breath well, so I forget that I have them on.

- Top Notch Gaiters (Review by Mychal)
I've used these rail running in the high alpine of Colorado and the deserts of Southern Utah with great success. These puppies are light and breathable and you won't know you're wearing them even after putting in big mileage.
Fit is great and I don't see these wearing out any time soon, even with regular use.

- Only one problem! (Review by Carl)
I can only think of one problem with these gaitors - they are always sold out.
I have the blue ones and I use them with my Altra Lone Peaks or Olympus shoes. Both of these shoes have a gator gripper in the back and these things are completely effortless to use. They do a great job of keeping stuff out of my shoe, but more importantly I never remember I have them on. They really are a mindless piece of equipment, you never have to think about it until you get back to the car.
My primary activity is trail running around the Wasatch Mountains. I have not used these much for snow, but I have significant experience with them in wet and dry trail conditions and they could not perform better. I just wish I could find a black pair in stock one of these days!
