Crocodiles Gaiter

The names 'Cordura' and 'GORE-TEX' have both become legendary among outdoor enthusiasts. Both have come to symbolize utter dependability in their respective fields. One item that has helped to nurture this reputation is the Outdoor Research Crocodile Gaiter. Equally legendary and nearly as famous, the Crocodile was the original high-performance weather- and mountain-proof gaiter. The Crocodile hasn't changed much over the years because its design was spot-on from the beginning. Besides having a triple-bartacked Biothane webbing instep strap and an additional tab that holds down the front opening, this Cordura and GORE-TEX masterpiece remains as it was in the beginning.

Not good

I have to replace these every 2, sometimes less than 2, years due to what I call the Velcro toe guards. Yes they're guaranteed but dealing with some of their warranty staff is not worth the trouble. There are other outdoor stores that are just as good and are less of a hassle. I'm done with OR. I've asked to be removed from their database but they sent me this. Again.

I would buy these over and over again

Just bought a replacement for the same pair I've had for years which I lost. I wore them when I climbed Mt Kilimanjaro. I wear them when I snowshoe, climb, hike. They are very very sturdy and last forever. Super water proof and will resist even scuffs from crampons. Great product.

Great gaiters

I've been using these gaiters to hike in the snow on warmer winter days. I get too hot wearing snow or shell pants but still don't want to get snow in my boots and these gaiters fixed that problem for me. They are waterproof and durable.

Works as expected. Runs a little small on larger snow boots given the size chart.

Good gaiters for skiing

Bought small women's. I wear a 7.5 to 8 shoe, 5.5, 135 lb, athletic calves. These fir very well for me. Used them cross country skiing, and they keep feet dry. I personally don't like Velcro since it will destroy certain other clothing items that might come into contact with it, but they do seal really well and stay sealed.

Amazingly durable

I have had a pair of these for about 15 years. My partner needed a pair to replace the brand that failed for them. Every day ware at 9000' 6-8 months a year.

I'm disappointed with OR quality lately. The post of the buckle on these gaiters busted on my second use (less than 5 hours of use)

Does the Job

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got these gaiters for mountaineering WA peaks. They've held up perfectly for climbs such as Rainier, Baker, Adams, etc. The only downfall is they are easier to puncture with crampons but that might also just be crampon error on my end.

Bombproof gaiters

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These are the best weatherproof gaiters around and great in cold weather. They are durable, and completely waterproof against wet snow and rain. The cinch buckle works well to hold them in place. One tip for fit: I wear a size 8.5 US women's boot and size down to get a good fit from these gaiters if you do not have a larger circumference leg.
