Designed for mountaineers and backcountry adventurers alike, the Rab Latok Alpine Gaiter features waterproof breathable eVent fabric, Watergate softshell, and a tough Robic nylon ankle panel to prevent snow and slush from creeping into your boots. The hook-and-loop front closure, one-hand top drawcord, and tough rubberized underboot strap keep it securely attached when you're punching through wind crust, and the reflective print lets the others on your rope team keep an eye on you during nighttime descents.

straight up crap
The boot strap broke on about the 5th outing. The boot strap is very flimsily sewn to the gaiter. I went to warranty it via the "lifetime warranty," and since I didn't save the receipt, I was told that I had to pay for the repairs. Sticking with outdoor research from now on. They actually stand by their products.
the do-all gaiter
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Rab killed it (once again) with these gaiters. They're perfect for virtually everything: winter hiking, snowshoeing, snow climbs, general mountaineering, you name it. The underboot strap is super rugged, which is perfect for when you're romping around on rocks or other abrasive surfaces. The softshell material makes these gaiters lightweight and breathable, while still keeping them tough and resistant to snow and ice. Definitely a worthy investment if you're looking for a versatile, high quality gaiter.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I LOVE these gaiters. I have a size M and they're just right for me. I wear a size 9 shoe and regular size legs. I haven't found a better set of gaiters yet. I like the adjustable stirrup and the tight fit. I have an older set of Rab gaiters and they have lasted many many snowshoeing trips. When friends ask what gaiters I recommend, I always point them to these.
how tall are these gaiters? particularly in size M?
Hi, could you help me with size choosing?
Im 5 10' tall. I wear size 10.5 ( eur 44.5)Hanwag Tatra shoe. My calf is 15.5 inches in circumference.
My leg from the ankle to the knee cap is around 17 inches long.
What size should I get M or L?
