Because nobody likes dirt and debris in their shoes.

The Outdoor Research Flex-Tex II Gaiters stop dirt, mud, and snow from entering trail running shoes, hiking boots, and cross-country ski boots. The single drawcord closure wraps around to the back of this low-profile gaiter, tightening into an "X" shape to fit a wide variety of shoes and boots. A high-visibility BioThane instep strap secures this gaiter to your shoes' or boots' soles, and the hook-and-loop front closure ensures a tight seal against debris.

  • 92% nylon, 8% spandex
  • BioThane instep strap
  • Single drawcord, shear tab top closure
  • Hook-and-loop closure at front

Hey again Rod,

Just answered your same question on the Rab Latok Alpine Gaiter. Pretty much all of our gaiters that we keep in stock are designed more with climbing and mountaineering in mind and intended to keep your legs safe from accidental brushes with stick, sharp rocks, and climbing crampons. A snakes hypodermic needle like fangs would likely still be able to break through on these but are better than nothing. I strongly suggest getting a pair of gaiters that are more designed for the task if you are going to be tempting fate and walking around in a snake pit.
