Bombproof leg protection.
The Mountain Equipment Trail DLE Gaiter is made with a waterproof Drilite three-layer shell and is reinforced with a 500-denier nylon material to protect it from abrasive boots, ice, and crampons. It fits close around the ankle to minimize bulk and is secured through a hook and loop front, leather strap, and adjustable drawcord.

- Q & A
Initially nice, not sure on longevity
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
Bought these to hold back my pants while ice climbing. The material seems to be super resilient and pretty lightweight. That said I had a couple stitches on one of the gaiters blow out when putting them on the first time. The fit is pretty tight especially when wearing pants underneath. I will still use these for climbing and winter activities to protect my pants, but they are no longer waterproof with the blown out seams.
