These Gaiters are stellar. They provide protection from the elements where it is most necessary and will keep everything out of your boots. The three layer Gore-tex is hard to beat and keeps the feet dry.

I do have a few nick-nacks that could be improved to make this a excellent product.
1. The draw webbing on the top of the gaiter is very flimsy and will often twist making it hard for the clamp to shut or stay shut. This is not a big deal, but it does create an annoyance having to always spend 5 minutes fixing it every time I put my gaiters on.

2. These are made for some pretty harsh conditions (snow and heavy rain), but I have found that these do not breath very well and if I am wearing a pant that is keeping my upper legs warm, my calves will be burning up, causing sweat and then my legs get wet from the inside. Which contradicts the reason that I wear gaiters (to keep my feet/legs dry).

Over all these are well thought out and I do prefer these over any other type of gaiter. But there could always be improvements.

My experience with these are: Hiking for 3+ years and a 90 day excursion with NOLS. I have mountaineered, hiked, backpacked and canyoneered. They have been put to the test and from all other standards; passed.

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.

Professional Alaskan guide I live in my gear.

I own 4 pair 2 different sizes with a backup just in case. I ALWAYS carry my Crocodiles!

First recommendation to my clients for gaiters.

Roomy enough for stocking foot breathable wanders to roll down inside and get easy coverage or puffy pants under a shell inside the gaiter.

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.

great in the deep snow and cold weather

I used them for 5 years and can say that they keep you warm and dry in the deep snow and cold weather. I brought them to mount Elbrus in the Caucasus and they were great. In the warmer spring months they are too hot.

Bought these gaiters for a trip to India, i must say they live up to their reputation. Kept my feet dry during stream crossings, decreased wear on boot laces/pants while bush whacking made this must have for my next trip! Solid product OR!

Crocs are the standard

Bushwhacking, snow shoeing, crossing shallow streams, mud trails, and anything else I have thrown at these. Crocs are the beast of boot gaiters! Everyone in my SAR unit starts off with some other brand of gaiters but it only takes a few outings before they switch to crocs. That's how good they are.

Great Protection

Gaiters are a must when bushwhacking, and these have been through a lot and have held up great. My one complaint would be at times the buckle at the top has come undone. Not a big issue but if I had to do it again I would have opted for the Expedition version as the buckle appears more secure.

I wear these in conjunction with bunny boots along with several other people here. Been down to -72F in them. And -50 for weeks. Going on 8 years on one set now. Still going strong. They will probibly outlast the boots. OR makes the best gators hands down, with the best warranty.
