Like their namesakes, “Crocs” have been around forever, they’re tough as nails and stand the test of time. The instep strap is now triple-bartacked BioThane® webbing, and an additional tab holds down the front opening. The fitted design and durable, waterproof fabrics are the standard for which all gaiters are judged.

I bought my first pair of Crocodiles in about 1993. I climbed Mt. Adams in Washington State last weekend wearing them, and someone pointed and said, now those are old school. The only thing old school was the logo, otherwise they looked fairly new. I took them into OR today, after summiting in them 48 hours previously - a buckle was busted and they had a small crampon tear from years ago - asked if they could be repaired, and the gentleman said no, but they are under a lifetime warranty. He walked to the rack and gave me a new pair. My old pair was up Rainier twice, and all of the Cascade volcanoes multiple times, and I anticipate another quarter century in my new ones. Thank you OR for the amazing customer service! I am a customer for life.

The actual Gore-Tex fabric is great and will last forever. However, having owned several pairs of these now, the stitching that holds the straps was first to blow out after several uses on the first two pairs. They have updated that, but now after only two uses 5-6 hours, the little loop that you put the end of the strap through is about 25% of the way frayed through and looks like it will blow out in the next couple uses. With having to pay return shipping each time on any warranty work, I would have hope to get much more than a few uses. With shipping costs adding up on warranties, I will be looking at something new.

      I volunteer with Search and Rescue and it seems like every volunteer and their mom has OR Gaiters. They simply can't be beat. It's almost like you aren't really a part of the SAR family until you have a pair. I recommend them, they have saved my softshell pants from my crampons more than once.

      These gaiters are simply the best. Waterproof and tough. I spent every day last winter in these trudging through powder for a job and they never failed. Another great OR product.

      Best gaitor on the market. I've had mine for a couple years now and they have not let me down. Fit nicely over day hikers, cross country ski boots or heavier alpine purpose boots. Will be purchasing a second pair when my current pair wear out in a couple years. No regrets!

      Honesty first: I have not tried the Expedition Crocodile Gaiters

      Having tried many OR gaiters as well as gaiters from Black Diamond and Hillsound, I have come to rely on my crocodiles most. Gaiters are almost disposable when used well and used often. I can beat up the Crocodiles for years without worrying about them shredding beyond their usefulness. Just be sure to buy the right size!! I have little feet (men 8.5-9) but athletic calves, I bought a medium and was very happy.

      These are high-quality do what there supposed to do. True to size. I have been buying OR gear for all my outdoor activities for over 10 years. They make gear you can rely on. I highly recommend these to anyone.

      Best gaiters I've ever seen

      Comments about OR Men's Crocodile Gaiters:

      I've logged literally thousands of miles with this model, over the last two decades. I primarily wear them for walking through alpine and subalpine systems, particularly on talus fields, but also walking through scrubby vegetation, scrambling, navigating mud, rain, hail, snowfields, etc. The only thing that I've had fail is the instep strap (because I'm not always wearing them on snow), but OR has been stellar at keeping their word on the Infinity Guarantee to provide replacement straps, AND it appears that they've now improved the instep straps even further! I've used other pairs of the model also for mountaineering, with superb performance.

      If I had to choose between Ryan Reynolds and these gaiters. I would almost choose these gaiters they are that good. They keep you dry! they look back country sheik. I have worn them for probably 50 or 60 days in the back country and they won't die, I have tried to kill them. They are very rip resistant against crampons. Which is a huge bonus.

      I've had a pair of these since 2012 and have logged many hundreds of miles hiking and snowshoeing through the toughest brush that northwest Wisconsin can offer. They keep the snow from sticking to my pants and boots. Love these babies.
