Reviewed by Jay NC from North Carolina on Monday, November 18, 2013I am loving these so far! Easy on, easy off - lightweight and comfortable. I haven't worn them in harsh conditions, so they haven't been fully put to the test, but so far, so good!
Reviewed by Firefly from California on Wednesday, November 13, 2013These are a second pair. The first worked so well my son has them and I bought a second pair for me. Keep the junk out of your boots, repels bugs, easy to use and comfortable.
Reviewed by Toothpolice from RSA / Mass on Friday, November 8, 2013Great product ! I work on a wild game reserve in the Republic of South Africa each year and gaiters are a must to keep the " pickers " out of your socks and discourage insects .......I have tried many kinds, some too short, some too hot,some too hard to put on/off,some too lose or tight......these are just right...I bought two pair just in case.
Reviewed by Firefly from California on Wednesday, October 30, 2013These work so well my son commandeered mine and I just ordered a new pair. I can't really comment about the bug repellent feature since the bugs are gone for winter. These gaiters are easy to put on and take off, hold securely in place when in use, and repel water well. The flat strap that goes under the shoe shows no wear after about 20 miles worn over trail runners. Great to keep the debris out of your shoe and keep you dry, even after an accidental step in a deep puddle. They come mid calf, just high enough to cover my hiking socks. The fabric seems very durable compared to other types of gaiters I've looked at.
Reviewed by Anne Hoge from Virginia on Monday, July 15, 2013We went hiking Memorial Day and my husband wore these gaiters. I had another brand of gaiters without the Insect Shield. He had virtually no ticks on him... I was covered... even though I was wearing 40% DEET on my socks and jeans with my gaiters. The ticks even got under my socks. My husband only had a few. I am convinced the reason is that he had these and I didn't. Now I have the Insect Shield Gaiters too!
