Yes, the Overboot is sized the same as the Expedition gaiters. Specifically, if you have a large gaiter you will want a size large Overboot.

Yo! Will these fit over both plastic and leather boots or are they designed for one or the other in particular? Thanks.

Overboots in action around camp
Igloo building made easy, thanks to dry warm feet inside the OR Brooks Ranger Overboots.
Some good booty
It's nice to be able to get out of your boots and into these guys at the end of the day. You can slip 'em on with your liners and help dry them out around camp.
These are obviously made for high altitude and extremely cold temps. They don't stay dry in wet and sloppy conditions.
Overall a nice piece of softwear to have along.
