RATING AND REVIEWS

Best On The Market

5

For a sping/summer/fall lightweight, mid calf gaiter, these are the best I've found. I haven't had issues with sweat in 85º+ weather, and don't have to worry about wet boots for small stream crossings. I hate having small rocks or dirt in my boots, so I put these on almost every time I'm out.

Montana

Yes

Fantastic Gaiter!

Used for early season elk hunting in conditions from very dry/dusty trails, to wet marshes, to snow covered trails. This was my first time using gaiters for hunting and loved them! They kept my feet dry and clean in a multitude of conditions. The only problem was that my feet did get wet while walking through a tall grass marsh that was very wet. My pants wicked the water down to the socks and soaked in the water from there. I will add that I don't think they are designed for those type of conditions (they make a taller gaiter as well). They were very comfortable, easy to put on and were surprisingly quiet.

Performed well, multi-use item

I'm short and often find full gaitors too tall for me. So I got these for hiking and/or trudging thru alpine terrain. Took them on Reynolds Peak, WA climb and they worked surprisingly well, keeping snow out even when plunge-stepping and post-holing (I really cinched down on the top elastic band). The foot strap showed very little wear and tear despite full day of talus hopping.

Seattle

Yes

Worked as advertised

Wore these on a 200 mile hike across England with some extremely wet weather and some very boggy conditions. I also wore them on a few hot days and did not find them uncomfortable at all. I was glad to have them to keep rocks and burrs out as well.

Colorado

Yes

These are amazing!

I wore these today and they did not disappoint. My feet were dry and no twigs or tree needles were able to get in my boot. Great fit and great coverage!

durable and effective

These gaiters are excellent for 3 season use. They stay on and are very durable. For more than a year I've used these extensively for orienteering and search and rescue. They are strong and reliable and keep crap out of my shoes and boots. The instep strap is particularly strong, after all the miles I've put on these gaiters, this crucial part shows no wear at all except for a little discoloration from all the mud.

Adjustable and keeps snow out

I wore these after the recent snowstorm hit the East Coast. It helps keep snow and slush out of my boots while I was trekking around and shoveling. Definitely a good buy. I'll be bringing them with me this summer on my John Muir Trail hike, too. They're super lightweight!

Philadelphia, PA

Yes

Light, cool, and effective.

5

This are great on muddy trails. Water beads up and rolls off. They stay in place and keep the mud off. The breathable soft shell is more comfortable than my old cordura gaiters. The front closure makes them easy to put on on the trail. They are light enough to toss in my pack just in case. Great stuff!

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.
