Good gaiters

I wear them regularly all winter. Wore med size because the leg height was spot on only issue the foot strap needs 2 more holes longer so they fit over my boots in the right place for the hook loop. This time i went with the large. I am 6'2" size 11 boots They are so tall they fasten at the knee, rubs the back of the knee, about 2" too long to be worn comfortably, but they fit nicely over my boots.

Best gaiters available

I have bought a number of different gaiters over the years and these are the best ones I've found. Well-designed, lightweight, easy to put on, I really like the system for keeping then snug around your calves, etc. Really the best ones around.

Works great

Used them for a few hours a day in the Montana winter for a couple of days. They worked well and kept the snow out of my boots while also protecting my pants from twigs and branches. I recommend water-proofing them with a waterproofing spray before using them for snow. Wearing baggier pants also helps them stay up better if you cinch them tight just below the knee.

Do the job

Currently using these for winter fat biking. Do a great job biking and keep my dry when pushing through deep snow. I'm sure they will work all seasons.

Great Gaiters!

I used these for a backcountry elk hunt in Colorado. There was a foot of snow on the ground and these gaiters kept my pants and boots completely dry. I would highly recommend these. They work great and are very affordable

Great product

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received the wrong color but I ended up liking it better than black. These gaiters haven't changed in years for good reason. They stay high up on my skinny legs and keep me dry in wet snow.

Not quite 'all season'

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These are well made and of durable material. Wore the Rocky Mountain on one leg and the OR Helium on the other to test the fit and function. After about an hour the Rock Mountain was wet underneath, and my pants were damp. The helium was for the most part relatively dry. They both have their own applications, but I would not wear these if I were doing anything where I plan to sweat any. I'm sure they will be great for cooler temps and wet conditions.
