    Outstanding Durability

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've owned gaiters for nearly 2 decades, and these babies are by far superior to other brands. I recently put these through some of the worst garbage terrain (Alaska - tussocks/tundra) I've ever hiked, and was beyond impressed with their performance/durability. They never feel down, they breath well (my legs didn't overheat like in my old gaiters), and the durability is outstanding. We whacked our way through some very dense forested area, if ever a place to tear them, and they don't even have a 'scratch'. When crossing swift rivers, again performed exceptional. Other hikers in our group kept having to stop and adjust, pull up, or take off and put back on their gaiters (other brands). If they had these awesome Hillsound ones, I wouldn't have gotten as many breaks while they fixed/adjusted to enjoy the beautiful scenery - thank you Hillsound for making a solid product.

    Better than OR

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've worn the OR knee-high gaiters for several years. Good product, but I disliked how they sagged and how HOT my legs got. I also hate how the front fastener loops over the shoe lace - always seems to come undone. I found the Super Armadillos on the web and decided to give them a try even with a rather pricey cost. Wow. What a surprise. I love how the front fastener loops under the shoe lace & not over, the zipper runs down towards the foot & is secured with a velcro cover, the top of the gaiter has a much better adjustable strap, the fabric around the boot is much more durable, the strap under the bottom of the boot sturdier, and the darn thing breaths much better than my OR gaiters.

    Finally

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Until now, I've never been able to find a gaiter that would fit tightly around my calf and also fit my boot snugly. These fit perfectly and appear to be extremely well made. I like the zipper/buckle closure combo. Gonna take them out in the snow as soon as we get a few inches on the ground!
