Why We Like The Helium Gaiters

The Halium Gaiters are one of our gear-closet stapes because the lightweight fabric is perfect for a fast-paced through hike or the ultralight-backpacker. On the performance side, the 2.5L Pertex waterproof membrane prevents rain, mud, or even slush from entering your boots, all while maintaining airy breathability for varied conditions.

Fantastic gaiters

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I’m using these for all of my hikes and snowshoeing. My calves are nice and warm, and my feet are dry! I always thought my calves were big, but they still fit really well. My calves are 14 inches at the west part. These are easy on and off and super light if you are carrying them in your pack.

Lightweight

Lightweight and thin. Great at shedding water and snow. Stay away from thorns.

Sizing chart does not work - big calves beware

Product itself is fine. But the sizing chart, which uses shoe size, does not work. I'm a women's size 10 1/2 and there was NOW WAY the size L/XL would fit my calves. There was a ONE INCH GAP at the widest part of the calf and the gaiters would just not close. To be honest, I laughed. Why does XL and XXL exist for men and not for women? I had to get men's size L and even then, the fit was quite snug (I also tried on men's Crocodile gaiters and couldn't even fit in size L). Here's a suggestion : make unisex gaiters (no men's and women's models) based on a size chart that uses calf circumference and not shoe size :)

Too small

Familiarity:
I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
L

These gaiters seem nice, but the calves are just slightly too small. I can almost get them velcroed at the widest point, but not quite. For reference my calves are 16" around; I'm 5'6" and usually wear a women's size 8 or medium. I thought these would fit me because I previously tried their wide calf gaiters (the Outdoor Research Crocodile Gaiters - women's L Wide) and they were way too big, as in falling off my legs. Nothing here for mid-sized women I guess.

Lightweight gaiter for packing away

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The helium gaiter does exactly what it is intended to do; they are packable and lightweight. I have not torn the material yet, but I do not push these gaiters through brush because I think they might tear easily. They hold up well to a light rain and are very easy to put on. 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.

Not as good as the originals.

I got these to replace the original pair or OR gaiters that broke, using the warranty refund money OR gave me. Apparently they stopped making my old design which was way thicker and had much better materials, this new replacement design is very thin and not nearly as waterproof. These are good for day hikes in short wet grass or just to keep your boots clean but not good enough for backpacking or rocks.
