Robust mid-calf gaiters

I've used it several times

Easy to put on and off. Reliable buckle, gaiters don't slide down. Rope is optional, and can be replaced. Great for scree and exposed glacier with crampons, not ideal for deep snow. For simple hiking below rock/ice zone, consider something lighter and cheaper. Size M nicely fits on leather boots US size 9.5 + not-so-wide calves.

These are the best hiking gaiters of any out there. Durable. Easy to put on. And don't need the strap under the boot to stay in place. The very top is a bit baggy but otherwise perfect. I would highly recommend.

Sizing is off

As other reviewers have stated recommend sizing is sketchy. Now I’m stuck eating 20% of the cost in return shipping. I won’t try another size when they made twice as much on this sale than their vendors. BS

This is the way

Just what i needed, wear them down keep rocks and crap out of shoes or wear them up for protection. Perfect

LIghtweight and durable

I like these for outings where weight and bulk matter. Tough but compact, height probably not the best for lengthy postholing sessions, but the reinforced inside patch helps keep them up. I have not-large calves, wear size 10-10.5 boots. I'm glad I got the medium; I still cinch down the top strap quite a bit, and it seems like a large would not mate that well with my light mountain boots.

Prime Ankle Protection

They have been great for keeping snow out of my shoes for running/hiking in the snow. Would highly recommend for any upcoming spring activities.

Good quality

Keep snow and debris out while not being cumbersome. High quality for a good price
