Low-profile protection and warmth for fast-moving snowshoers.
If you're a snowshoeing fiend who sports lower-profile athletic footwear during your fast-moving snow treks, cover your shoes in the Outdoor Research Low Huron Gaiters to seal snow out and keep your feet warm and dry. The gaiters are tall enough to rise well above your footwear, and you can pull in the drawcord to keep snow sealed out as you're charging through snowdrifts. They are the shorter-length version of Outdoor Research's Huron gaiters, and their smaller profile fits more easily in a backpack. The gaiters' breathable, waterproof Pertex Shield membrane keeps moisture out while helping control clamminess, and an insulating, fleece-lined neoprene lower extends all the way over the toe area to ensure your feet stay warm and protected. Durable and lightweight instep straps keep the gaiters secured over your boots so you don't have to worry about them slipping off in the middle of a snow bank when you need them most.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Bought for wife as gift for Atlas Running Snow shoes. Work well with sneakers to provide protection for the winter elements. She did a 5k yesterday in hilly terrain. Temp was 2 degrees ( upstate NY) and she said they kept feet warm and dry. She uses a size 8.5 running shoe, bought Large (only available) medium would fit better.
How would these be for trail hiking on rainy days? Would the the part that fits against the boot sole, under the toe, ware out quickly?
Hey Phil, I wouldnt use these for trail hiking in the rain. I would use the OR croc gaiter or the verglas gaiter. both would be a better choice.
Thanks for the question,
