Most Helpful 4-Star Review
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Colorado Girl from Colorado Rockies on Thursday, May 22, 2014These gaiters came in very handy while tromping around in a spring mountain snowstorm. They are a little shorter than I would have preferred, but worn over waterproof pants, they worked fine. The elastic that runs under the boot is already starting to wear out after 5 days of use, but it seems simple enough to replace. The fabric is stretchy and the Velcro stayed put all day. Due to the short height, they did tend to slip down and settle just below my calf for most of the day, but they were not too restricting. I wear a women's size 9.5, and ordered the men's medium. They fit well over my bulky boots.
Reviewed by Daniel from Boston on Sunday, January 5, 2014If they were 2" taller i would have given them 5 stars. Lightweight, easy on/off. They keep the snow out of you boots.
Reviewed by none from CALIFORNIA on Saturday, December 28, 2013TOO SHORT. i DON'T GET HOW DO NOT FALL DOWN BECAUSE THEY SIT RIGHT BELOW THE CALF. REALLY POOR DESIGN. HAVE ALWAYS HAD GREAT LUCK WITH MOUTAIN HARDWEAR. HAD TO EXCHANGE FOR THE GORTEX OR GAITER AND THESE WERE PERFECT.
Question & Answer

“Hi, Is this waterproof? Why doesn't the description say it's waterproof and yet used for skiing, ice climbing, snowshoeing.”
This item is designed for skiing, ice climbing and snowshoeing, but it is not made out of waterproof material, which is why it doesn't say that it is waterproof. The material is water resistant.
“I would like to have these for hiking. Are there different gators for hiking? Also, what determines the size?”
We do not have gaiters listed as specifically for hiking. These state that they are designed to fit over ski and mountaineering boots. If you hover your mouse over or click on the sizes the corresponding shoe size will appear.
