The Outdoor Research Crocodile® gaiters keep snow out of your boots while climbing mountains, cross-country skiing or hiking over snow fields.

  • Gore-Tex®/Taslan® nylon uppers are waterproof and breathable; durable lower panels of coated Cordura® nylon are lined with packcloth
  • Changing the amount of overlap on the 2-inch wide rip-and-stick closure adjusts the bottom circumference, allowing a fit over different boots
  • Top closes with an adjustable 0.75-in. wide nylon webbing strap and a low-profile cam buckle
  • Tapered at the ankle, reducing crampon-catching fabric; asymmetric bottom edge provides a sleek, snug fit around the boot
  • Rugged, urethane-coated nylon instep strap with buckle secures the fit; instep strap is replaceable
  • Use the double-riveted boot lace hook to keep the Outdoor Research Crocodile gaiters from shifting

Gaiter sizes fit U.S. boot sizes as follows:

  • Small fits men's sizes 4 - 7 and women's 5.5 - 8.5

Rated5out of5byfromSetting the standardThese gaitors have set the bar for over a decade and continue to do so. Sure they seem a little pricey when you're shopping around but there is no product out there that is more solid than then Crocs. The rugged canvas will put up with ski edges, crampons, the stiffest treeline shrubbery and the nastiest scree. I've used these in Ecuador, Peru, Chile, the PNW, Yukon, Nepal, BC, New Zealand and Alaska and have never been disappointed. You wont be either. The Goretex is fantastic and if you're fast enough you can even make calf-deep river crossings without getting your feet wet. You'll feel like a jesus lizard!

Rated5out of5byfromBest GaitersThese are great gaiters! Extremely rugged (have withstood the test of time with crampons) and full coverage. Some gaiters seem to skimp on the material and don't offer full coverage. You will not be disappointed with these. 5 stars.

Rated5out of5byfromBest outdoor product I ownI am looking for a new pair of gaiter only because the pair I wear are too small for the plastic boots I just got. It made me think about how long I have had my old ones. Going on 18 years now and I can honestly say they are the BEST outdoor product I have ever purchased. I wear them to keep snow, mud, rock and everything out of my boots. They have been bullet proof and handled anything I have tried to stuff in them. I reccomend them to ALL my friends and I have not heard one complaint.

Rated5out of5byfromOne word... "GREAT!"They are waterproof! Not water resistant. I went hiking up on Mt. Mitchell after hurricane sandy came through and dumped a lot of snow on the western side of North Carolina. Never once did I feel any wetness when I got up on the top of Mt. Mitchell to change my wool socks out. They stayed right were I needed up, it felt like there was a lot more ankle support, never once did they fall on me. I would buy these again if they were to be stolen from me.

Rated5out of5byfromGreatI haven't had these for too long but I love them!! These are excellent when you are walking through prickly bushes and touchy terrain. When I'm out on a rescue I'm mainly focusing on finding my patient not the painful bushes around my feet so its nice to know that I'm not gonna get too scratched up. Plus they keep my pants intact and a lot cleaner then they would be otherwise. They are great and I would highly recommend spending the extra money to get the crocs because the replaceable boot strap is a god sent.

Rated5out of5byfromBombproof GaitersThese have been my go-to gaiters for nearly 5 years now. I've beaten on them and they've taken everything I can give them without a lot of obvious wear. One of the underfoot straps snapped after about 3 years, but I replaced it and they've been fine since. The strap and clip system holds the top up nicely, even over my rather large calves. It's comfortable too, without being too tight. They're also extremely water-resistant. The Gore-Tex is solid, the seams are tight, and the top-strap keeps most everything out. (Full Disclosure: I bought these gaiters at a local shop, but have been testing products for a Gore-sponsored program since 2007. Didn't change my opinion though.)
