Scree field ahead, but no worry; pull on the REI Co-op Lightweight Hiker gaiters, put your boots or running shoes back on and proceed—these stretchy gaiters keep out the grit without slowing you down.

  • Features

    • Stretchy but rugged nylon/spandex fabric keeps dirt and grit at bay while giving you more freedom of movement than traditional gaiters
    • Waterproof, quick-drying fabric helps keep the elements from seeping into the tops of your footwear
    • Gaiters pull on like a sock; put shoe/boot on, tighten instep strap, tighten elastic drawcord at ankle and go
    • Front hook connects to your shoelaces to hold gaiters in place and help protect your laces
    • Rated UPF 50+ for maximum sun protection
    • Made using bluesign®-approved materials, which conserve resources and protect the health of the environment, workers and wearer (you!)
