Perfect for hiking
I have an older model of the Flex-Tex Gaiters by OR that come with a tied cord instead of a strap and I still love them. These only seem even better. I love the stretchy material that fits snug but not tight around the lower calf. I was worried that these might snag and run with lower thorns or bushes but haven't had an issue at all. I used these for hiking in all but the worst wet/snow weather but I did see one of our guides go up Rainier wearing these instead of the beefier Crocs so you know you can't go wrong.
