  • “I need a gaiter for a men's size 13 shoe. Would a large work?”
    Asked by Jason from Montana on 3/3/2014 8:40:17 PM
    • I wouldn't recommend this style Montana, I wear a 12 mens and the large is very snug/tight around my calf.
      Answered on 3/3/2014 8:45:22 PM by Applewood from NW
    • Hi- yes they should be fine for a 13. So I wear a size 12 - and they fit fine on all but one of my boots.- The bottom strap is very generous - The only boots it was a little tight on were my sorrel caribou's which are just massive - and they fit. but were snug on the top of the shoe where you velcro - but it did not leak and was fine. Just not a perfectly lined up seam. I could have extended the bottom strap and moved the gaiter up some and it would have been fine - but couldn't be bothered as it worked that way no problem. And they were set right for my other "normal" boots. Hope that helps- I say grab em at this price- you can't go wrong. - at all.

    • nope, definately need XL for larger than 11

    • It'll depend on how beefy your boot is. I wear mine with both a standard sort of mid-weight hiking boot, size 10, and it's pretty loose around the bottoms. I also wear the same pair with my mountaineering boots, size 11.5 and they're very snug at the bottoms... But these are BIG chunky boots. So depending on the volume of your boots, you may be ok.

    • I would say "yes". Shoe size doesn't matter. I'm very happy with my gaiters.
      Answered on 3/4/2014 5:06:40 AM by Active older woman from upper Michigan
    • Hard to answer that as it depends on the boot - What I found with these is that it was not just the foot size that made a difference, but almost more significant was the shape of the boot. Some winter hunting boots are large and deep, whilst another uninsulated boot might be considerably smaller. I would look at the other OR gaiter STP sell,, Mountain Hight, I think it's called, it's a little more flexible with an elastic base/hem. Also, I did find the calf quite snug.

    • The Large worked perfect for my size 12 Asolo boots. The X-Large I found way too big. I would think, though it depends on the shoe/boots size, a 13 hiking shoe would very likely fit the large. A 13 mountaineering boot may need to go XL.

      Hope that helps,

    • The challenge would be whether or not the "stirrup" - the strap that goes under the shoe - would fit in the arch of the shoe/boot being worn. If the individual is wearing a shoe or boot with a defined heel, this could be an issue. I would GUESS that this could be overcome by attaching the stirrup on a larger setting. (Note that it's like a belt, with multiple options for attaching it on the outside of the foot.)

    • I believe they would work just fine
      Answered on 3/4/2014 6:36:47 PM by jaxshud from south carolina
    • I wear size 11 wide. I purchased an XL and sized down to Large which fits about right. If the man is a tall man, the Large may be tight. An XL may be a better choice.

  • “Is there really a difference between men's and women's?”
    Asked by Mesacrest from CO on 2/8/2014 1:21:34 PM
    • I don't think so, maybe just size. My son asked for a large men's to allow for extra thick pants. He wears flannel lined Carharts hiking inctge woods and found that men's medium were too snug.
      Answered on 2/8/2014 6:14:32 PM by Snowboardwoman from Newbury, Vt
    • The difference will mainly, if not completely, be in the sizing. Check the sizing charts for gaiters and they are sized based on shoe size. So if a woman knows her men's shoe size and orders accordingly, I would think she'd be fine.

    • As far as I have heard and seen....no just sizing.
      Answered on 2/8/2014 8:16:22 PM by Hatchet Jack from Pa
    • I think that women's shoe's are sized differently than men's. This would be the only difference I'm aware of. So I would follow the women's sizing chart. If you ave a boot size that fit's two different sizes on the gaiter's sizing chart, I would opt for the smaller of the two. I tried the larger and had to replace it for the smaller. The buckles at the bottom of the gaitors fit better on the smaller size. Hope this helps.

  • “How do you size gaiters?”
    Asked by Jaybo from MI on 12/2/2013 10:37:40 AM
    • If you hover the cursor over the S,M,L,XL boxes on the page, it shows you the corresponding shoe size.
      Answered on 12/2/2013 12:17:58 PM by Matt from Denver
    • That is a tricky question. The sizing scale given by Outdoor Research is, from what I have encountered, assuming that you are going to be wearing big mountaineering boots. I have fit in a Large well in my size 12 hiking boots and my size 12 hiking shoes. My friend is a size 15 boots and the Extra Large fits him well. That being said, I would go lower than they suggest if you are wearing normal boots/shoes. Also, some people say they have trouble with the gaiter fitting around the calf. I guess this is possible but if you get the right size for your footwear this should not be an issue, as the are adjustable. That is unless you have very large or small calves.

      Worst case you can send them back and get the right size....Sierra will usually do that for you. There service is excellent.

    • by shoe size. these gaiters specifically say what shoe size range they should fit. I wear a size 12 shoe, so i bought the XLs because the range said "shoe size: 10-13"
      also the calf size increases quite a bit (i noticed) and i'm a pretty skinny dude and i have to cinch the calf adjustments quite a bit.
      that being said, if you're calves are skinny, go for the smallest size in your range (for example, if you're a size 10 or 11, go with the L(shoe size 8-11), not the XL(shoe size 10-13)

About Outdoor Research

The concept for Outdoor Research was devised in 1981 when climber Ron Gregg’s planned ascent of Denali was cut short, ending prematurely with his frostbitten partner being airlifted off a glacier. The cause was a faulty pair of gaiters. During his descent, Gregg resolved himself to create better gear, a resolution that soon led him to build the first pair of award-winning Outdoor Research gaiters. The concept was simple: Make outdoor apparel and gear with a clear focus on reliability. In the many years since, this brand has continued to blaze new trails with cutting-edge products that now include Outdoor Research gloves, jackets, backpacks and Outdoor Research hats, all engineered to exceed expectations in the most demanding conditions on the planet.
