are these any good for protection from snake bites and how tall are they

Hey Rod,

Most snake gaiters I have seen use a minimum 1000 Denier Cordura nylon. I mean these will be better than just leaving your skin exposed with a 'Free Steak Dinner' sign pointing to your shins but if you are going to be out and actually hunting rattle snakes and putting yourself in harms way intentionally I would probably get a pair of gaiters that are designed to block those gnarly fangs from penetrating you soft childlike flesh.

Breathable Gaiter

Finally a gaiter that truly breathes. 6 hour hike in the snow and pant legs not soaked by sweat:)

What size should I get if I am a size women 9.5? What are the length of the gaiters?

Responded on

I answer this going under the presumption you are referring to a Women's 9.5 in the United States measurement system. That being said, a Large accommodates Women's feet that run from sizes 8 -10. (See http://www.campsaver.com/latok-alpine-gaiter-men-s, "Size Guide" tab, "Gaiter" sub-heading for more info)
Pertaining to the length (http://www.trekitt.co.uk/250/products/rab-latok-alpine-gaiter-black.aspx), from lace hook to top rim of the gaiter, the length of a large is 40cm, or just under 16 inches.

Best Gaiter I've Used

The eVent breathes well and keeps the snow and water out. These gaiters are a million times easier to use than anything with a buckle or zipper. Velcro really is the way to go. They are durable and the bottom strap can take quite a beating. They are shorter than others, but I think they are the perfect height for what I want.

Great fit! But...

These gaiters are not just another tube of Gor-tex. With a scalloped design these fit to your boots better and with a taper at your ankle you get an all-around great fit! This is the same innovative design used by Black Diamond, but with Mountain Hardware’s stretch panel added into the back. In addition; the extra security of the upper snap and lower Velcro tap guarantee these aren't coming undone halfway up the route. Throw in the inverted laces hook which won't pop off and you are looking at several key features that most of the other leading gaiters don’t have individually, and none have collectively… This is why I bought a pair even though they are about 2 inches shorter than all the other gaiters on the market. The later will be why I will be returning these gaiters. They are great, but have a tendency to end up around your ankles in deep snow because they just don’t reach over my calves enough to stay put.
