Trail protection in a Nut Shell.

The Mountain Hardwear Nut Shell High Gaiter gives you durable water resistance and protection from rocks, snow, and other trail debris. These gaiters feature a 420D nylon packcloth shell that’s tough, lightweight, and ideally suited for trekking, backpacking, or brushy day hikes. A hook-and-loop front closure, an under-arch boot strap, and a ladder-lock up top keep the Nut Shell secure, while a top cinch drawcord seals out snow when you’re postholing through late-season drifts.

  • 420D nylon packcloth with PU-coating
  • One-handed, top drawcord cinch
  • Grommet holes at bottom
  • Hook-and-loop front closure

Here's what others have to say...



    Almost knee down with the XL's. Look good. Will try them out in September while doing some land clearing. Keep the snakes from biting and the mosquitoes confused. If lucky, they will get their chance in the snow by November.... Not breathable at all. The inside of these gaiters is soaking wet after taking them off. Probably due to the nonbreathable waterproofing interior as shown in the image below.

    I don't mind. I like the product for what it does do.


    Ample Room (XL)

      This unit had ample room to fit over my Insulated Carhartt Cover-all. The Top Cinch Draw Cord could have been made of a stronger material, but I do like the idea of the replaceable under the-arch Boot Strap. I do wear The Gaiter during and after a rain/snow storm to keep my pant legs dry and also when I'm using my chain-saw to keep the saw dust out my hiking boots and off my lower pant legs....
