These scree gaiters come with hooks in front to attach to your boot laces, elastic cords to loop under the boots and adhesive velcro patches that attach to the heel of the boot. 'All that' to hold the gaiters in place, but I found that removing the cords (and using them elsewhere in my backpack), not attaching the velcro patches and only using the laces hooks did not affect the gaiters' functionality. They stayed in place with just the hooks and the sewn-in elastics around the ankles-tops, and they kept my socks and boots scree free. I thought [$] was too high a price for such a product, but the sale price brought them into "reality" for me, and scree gaiters, I have discovered, especially these light, compact-fitting ones, are a valuable addition to any backpackers/hikers/trekkers list of essential gear.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
