Our best-selling Ferrosi fabric is so strong, stretchy, breathable, and comfortable, it made perfect sense to apply its renowned superpowers to our legacy of protective gaiters. The Ferrosi Thru Gaiters earned its name for its incredibly light weight that's perfect for ounce-counting backpackers, and fits trail runners and low profile hiking boots in keeping with the ultralight ethos of thru-hikers. A shoelace hook and drawcord cinch at its top hem ensures a snug fit that keeps debris out of your footwear, and a replaceable instep strap makes gear fixes on the go a breeze.
Outdoor Research proprietary Ferrosi Fabric makes up our largest, and most frequently awarded, product collection. It hits the equilibrium of being durable yet lightweight, it’s weather resistant yet breathable, and it’s complete with stretchy, easy-to-layer comfort. The Ferrosi line grows season after season, but is most frequently favorited by climbers and hikers for its jackets, hoodies, pants, and shorts. Ferrosi is truly the “do-it-all” choice for any adventurer looking for a layer that ticks three or more items off the gear list.
