I am a fan of RAB gear. The constuction of is gaiter is excellent but the design may not be ideal, depending on what you are doing. For snowshoeing, general winter wandering and glacial travel, this may be a good choice. Vertical and technical ice, not so much. The gaiter does not hold it's shape as well as the OR croc or exped. Also, the bungee pull at the top of the gaiter can pop out during climbs and get caught in a crampon. For technical ice, I would stick with OR gaiters.
