- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I am super happy with these gaiters. I have taken them up Mt. Rainier and many other snowy summits, I've used them ice climbing, and I worn them with shorts on long summer hikes with brutal underbrush. In all conditions these gaiters have performed admirably. The material has stood up to the abuse of sharp thorny plants, misplaces crampon spikes, and (seemingly) endless miles of scree and talus. After all of that the rubberized strap is still keeping things tight, and the uppers still keep my ankles and calves protected and dry. I've seen friends' gaiters leak in water or fall down around their boots, but the OR Crocs have never failed me! I do some product testing and reviews for Gore-Tex, but I got these gaiters long before I started with that project.
