Rated3out of5byAtomTimesfromNice Idea, not tough enoughI love the idea of light, low scree and dirt gaiters for hiking and running. I hike 15+ miles on often rugged terrain (dirt, scree, mud, off-trail) and these have be GREAT...while they lasted. I only got three uses out of them when the zipper on one of them broke and wouldn't zip. I also don't like the velcro attachment design on the top part of them that attaches to laces - I think hooks make more sense. All in all, I still love the idea and would recommend them, but when I return these I will be purchasing a pair of Dirty Girls instead.

Rated5out of5byJack of all master of nonefromKeeps the pine needles out!This is exactly what I was looking for. I don't like bulky weight when I am jogging or hiking and I also tend to go when it is not miserably wet out. I just need something to keep the junk out of my shoes and socks. I got mine a little to big thinking I would wear them over pants, but I have actually always had shorts so I wish I would have gotten the small.
I love that they are easy to get on and off, and lightweight so if I decide mid-hike I don't want them anymore I can toss them in my bag and it is no extra weight.
