Because wet, mucky footwear is just no fun.
Don't let worry over your footwear turn you back from your next adventure. Instead, throw on the Hispar Gaiter from Rab and power your way through any and all conditions you encounter. An eVent waterproof membrane helps prevent moisture from soaking through the nylon and ballistic polyester outer fabrics. An elasticated ankle, front zip closure, drawcord top closure, and traditional lace hooks all keep everything in place securely when you're hopping from boulder to boulder or navigating your way across a snowy ridgeline.

- Q & A
Rab quality = excellent functionality
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I originally bought another brand and it was absolute garbage. When i got this in the mail, you could feel the quality. The zipper, velcro and rubber under the boot strap all work to create a great seal. I used these in the cascades in early summer and it was WET. My pants were always dry and the gaiters themselves did not take long to dry. When i get the inevitable crampon tear. I will buy the exact same ones.
Hate snow in your boots? Me too!
I bought these specifically to keep that infamous super lightweight Utah champaign pow out of my boots which has a tendency to get in to my boots through even the smallest gaps in coverage.
I wear a size 9 boot, but got the large size to leave me some room to work with for when I use these gaiters with my snowboard boots.
Rab & eVent
At Rab we use eVent waterproof fabrics in some of our core shell products. These products, such as the classic Latok Alpine Jacket, are specifically designed for use in the harshest and wettest environments in the world.
These fabrics are extremely hard-wearing and durable, however they combine a range of unique technical features which allow for high levels of moisture movement and breathability. With these benefits, you can wear eVent waterproof products for fast moving activities without overheating.
Good for the price
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These would have gotten a 5-star rating except that they didn't stay super snug at the top of my calf and tended to slowly slide down a few inches, prompting me to pull them up and tighten the string a 2-3 times during a long day of wear. Not a big deal, just not 5-star.
is there a right and left or are both gaiters the same? what is the height on the large gaiters?
