Rated1out of5byfromAvoid until REI improves designI really wanted to like these and support the REI brand, but after I received them and tested them out I returned them. I wanted something lightweight and airy for dusty trails so it was between this one and the OR Ultra Trail Gaiters. This REI Gaiter could be a winner if it reversed the upside-down hook up front, made it much smaller and added more front material to cover ALL the laces. I did not like how on my boots, 50-60% of my laces were still exposed! Luckily in the store they had the OR Ultra Trail Gaiters. I ended up with these at 3x the price and very happy. Try these on and you'll see...95% of my laces are covered and protected. The front hooks work GREAT and there are 2 to hook onto that front lace loop. Now THAT is a solid design..

Rated5out of5byfromthey keep the rocks outI bought these for "debris protection" with my lo-rise shoes after realizing my ankles were too sensitive to wear above-the-ankle boots. They've been super easy to put on/take off, rocks/sand/debris stays out and they stay in place on my shoes (maybe up to a centimeter of creep - but nothing more). I've yet to try them in wet conditions, sorry. I don't really yank on the snaps or the hook after reading some of the other reviews - but I've used them on ~10 day hikes now, then rinse them off after every use and they have been awesome. Great product for a great's one less thing to worry about when you're playing on the trails.
