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.

Needed new gaiters and these are what I needed

I wore my old OR gators completely out so I got these. I really, really want to like them. However, they just seem too big, width-wise. I ordered the XL because that's what my last ones were. Maybe the Expedition gators are bigger for more layers/bigger boots? If so I think it should say that in the description, The gators aren't totally waterproof when there is room for the moisture to creep in. Plus I get the swooshing noise when I walk.

This is my second pair. My second pair in 18 YEARS!!!!. My last pair died a horrible crampon death after 17 years of abuse. You will not regret buying these. Size is true and durability is beyond doubt. DO IT!!

Work perfectly as intended

Perfect gaiters for use with my La Sportiva Nepal mountaineering boots. Perfectly tailored to fit over boots and pants (softshell and gore-tex worn at the same time) without any issues putting them on.

Burly Gaiters.

5

These gaiters should be called the "Burly SOBs" I used these all summer in the PNW on the mountains and not once did the tear from my crampons. They are very tough, easy to put on, and don't let snow in if you put them on right. The only this the worries me is how long the metal clasp will last. I have a bunch of scratches on it and some pretty deep ones at that. Overall these are some awesome gaiters but depending on what you are doing could be a little overkill.

Second to None

Plain and simple, there is no better gaiter on the market. I had mine for 12 years before they died a horrible crampon death. I just couldn't kill them no matter how hard I tried. And I tried! All 48 4000 footers in NH in the winter, countless other hikes in the Whites, shoveling and snowblowing, you name they saw it. I promise you WILL NOT be sorry. I'm about to order my second pair.

The Gold Standard for Gaiters

5

I don't trust any other company to make a gaiter. Mine are from the nineties, and were given to me by my Dad. In addition to his mileage, I've put another 1,000+ miles on them. They're not shiny-new anymore, but they are still 100% functional, and I'm constantly amazed that the strap underfoot hasn't broken after all the wear. My only critique: the metal hook on the front is a bit sharp, and after wearing them for hundreds of miles in the same place, it can cut into and break the shoelace, but if you're prepared, you should have extra shoelaces or p-cord, so not a huge deal. These are also great for ice climbing, and will prevent you from shredding your expensive pants with crampons.

Essential Gear - Outstanding

I've had these gaiters for years. If my boots go on, these go over them. Put more miles on these than I care to count. I've worn them out, cleaned 'em up, and they haven't failed me yet. They just keep going. Keeps snow, ice, mud, scree, water, etc. out of my boots. Worn them dove hunting in shorts in 100 degree Texas heat, to near zero temps in the back country snow. These gaiters are an essential piece of backcountry gear for me.
