I bought these before my last backpacking trip on the Pinhoti Trail in Georgia. We had heavy rains for 3 days while hiking. These gaiters definately helped keep the water and debri out of my boots. I would definately recommend them.
Reviewed by Cathy from Arlington, VA on Thursday, March 27, 2014These Gaters do just what they are supposed to do - keep the ice and snow off your boots and legs. As other reviewers noted, they are a bit complicated to figure out the first time, but they do what they are intended to do. And, great price!
Reviewed by Sierra hiker from Northern California on Wednesday, March 26, 2014These gaiters just didn't work for me: the bottom was too tight, the top too loose, the fabric too stiff.
Reviewed by Ski the Surveyor from Maine on Tuesday, March 18, 2014The major problem with most gaiters is that they don't last. It may be too soon to give a complete opinion. The product listed states that this is for occasional use. They have performed well during the last two weeks. I may have a different opinion on their durability with the day to day wear I expect over the next month.
Reviewed by The Woman from Wisconsin on Monday, March 17, 2014Good workmanship, will be using them soon, will get a set for the Mr soon!
Reviewed by AJW from Ohio on Thursday, March 6, 2014They worked out very well. They go on quick and easy and most importantly. They keep my legs dry for wading through high snow. The price was reasonable for what I wanted out of a pair of gaiters.
Question & Answer
I wear a 10 1/2 boot with a thick sole and I bought the large. I think the large would be too small for a size 12 based on the strap that goes under the heel.
“Under specs, I notice that waterproof material just says "DWR Finish." Does that mean that once the DWR wears off, these gaiters won't be waterproof?”
This item is actually only water resistant, rather than waterproof. If the DWR were to wear off it would not be as resistant.
“What type of strap do theses gaiters have? I'm seeing the same gaiters on REI's site and they show a leather strap with a buckle, not the string shown here.

The version we have come with replaceable nylon instep strings.
