Took these gaiters out snowshoeing in deep powder, and eventually slogging through slush and running water. Performed brilliantly, keeping my feet mostly dry, even when fording streams. Easy to pack and put on, very light, and comfortable, with no sagging over hours on the trail. Very happy with these gaiters, and would recommend for anyone with the calves to keep the top band in place once tightened.

Awesome gaiters, came just in time to wear on a 1 inch rain day! They fit great once adjusted and kept my pants and shoe tops dry all day! Going to test them again today in driving rain and thunder storms! I am sure they will be fine :)

I got these for an elk hunt on the Oregon coast. I have low top hikers and in a previous hunt I had trouble keeping the bottom of my rain pants from getting so wet that water worked it's way to my socks and wicked into my boots. I'm over six foot tall, weigh 225 lbs, and wear a size 15 boot. The XL fit fine with no problems and that was with rain pants over regular pants. I did pull them down so the black part was bunched up over my boots because the Gore-Tex is only the blue part. They are well made, look good, and a great value.

I've used these now 3 times and they work well. I'm not a big fan of velcro (velcro runs the entire length of the gator) and for me when putting them on I'm always fighting with it to get everything lined up well, but I think that's just me. Functionally these work great, breathable and had no issues with their waterproofing ability.
There is no guide that speaks for all gaiters. I'd contact Outdoor Research and ask for some advice. Before you do, measure your calf, the distance from the sole of your foot to the bend of your knee, and be prepared to tell them your boot size and your height/weight.|Good luck!

They are size according to shoe size. If you hover your mouse over or click on the sizes the relevant shoe size will appear. I.E. M (M Shoe Size 6-9, F 7-10) L (M Shoe Size 8-11, F 9-12)
