Similar to our popular “Crocs” but featuring even thicker skin, our burliest gaiters are designed for extended mountaineering trips in extreme conditions. The large circumference is roomy enough for plastic mountaineering boots and heavily insulated pants, and the durable Cordura® inner leg prevents crampon snagging and puncturing when you’re high in the mountains.

RATING AND REVIEWS

Love my Crocodile Gaiters!

5

Love my Crocodile Gaiters. I've tried other gaiters that rip and tear and don't last, these are as robust as they come, best gaiters on the market. I have a pair and recently bought a set for my dad and he loves them to! Thanks Outdoor Research!

Robust but limited size adjustment

These are very solid gators but the sizing range seems limited compared to my previous brand. I chose the size according to the sizing chart but the gators still seem too large with no option to snug the bottom and lace hook. That said, they mostly stayed in place over a rugged three day hike. The material seems durable enough to resist most branch and thorn penetration.

The best gaiters on the market.

I spend about 80 days in the backcountry of Montana and have tried almost all gaiters on the market. These are by far the best I have used. They are easy to put on and take off, have a great fit and prevent water from getting in your boots. These gaiters are well designed and worth the money.

I'm currently working in the interior of Alaska. I used the size cart to purchase these. Great product but they run large.

I would buy these again

First impression is of how extremely durable they are built but that is coupled with a fear of how long it will take to break in. Considering how stiff and rigid these felt out of the box I could not believe how well they fell into shape once I put it on. I have yet to test the waterproofing. I no worries that these will survive abuse from crampons, sharp rocks, etc.

Excellent for mountaineering boots

5

Excellent heavy-duty gaiters. These fit better over my mountaineering boots than the regular Crocs or the Verglas gaiters (both excellent). However note that these would be too big for regular winter boots, these should be considered strictly for mountaineering boots only. I've only used this a few times so far, but I have not yet managed to make a hold in them with crampons. It will probably happen eventually, but the extended coverage with 1,000 denier cordura on the full inside leg should take more abuse than other gaiters. On my last climbing trip I snagged a crampon at least once (though not badly) on the gaiter and it barely left a mark.

When logging miles in rugged terrain these are my go to gaiter. They are the toughest I've found to date. They aren't indestructible - but as close as you'll find. The underfoot strap wears and will break. The buckles will tear from the reinforcement patch which they are attached to the gaiter and the seams and gaiter bottoms will fray from prolonged use - but other gaiters put through the same conditions would fare far worse.

I wear a size 13 boot. I noticed that its right on the edge or the XL sizing so should I go with a XXL?

Tyler

Tyler, the expedition crocodile are designed with a larger bottom opening to accommodate a full mountaineering boot or ski boot, if you are on the edge of sizing I would default to the smaller size so that you don't have a gaiter that is far to big on the top.

Q&A_Admi

When it comes to sizes for Gaiters (men's)...it says to refer to shoe-size. Is this the only part of the gaiter (I'm assuming the strap?) that would make the difference between the sizes?

D

Hi D, Refer to your boot size. Gaiter width and length are also affected with an increase in size to accommodate a larger boot/bulk. Thanks for contacting OR, Paul

Hi. Does the height of the gaiter change with the size. I have the XL and they are a little taller than I would like because I'm a bit short with a large foot. Could I possibly get a get a height in inches for the Medium, Large, and X- Large. I would like this information for my next pair. Thank You

B

Hi B, The total height measurement of the Expedition Gaiters (when laid flat) are 16.25", 17.25", and 18.25" for the Medium, Large, and XL, respectively. Cheers, Paul

Hi - im confused on which size i need. My boot size is a 11.5. But the that falls in the L/XL and the XL category. which size should i choose.? Thanks, Elijah

Elijah

You should get the Expedition Crocodiles in XL.
