Essential items for fast hikers and ounce-counting backpackers, the men's waterproof Outdoor Research Helium gaiters help keep out pesky rocks, dirt, rain, snow and other trail debris you kick up.


  • Made from durable, ultralightweight Helium fabric, these gaiters deliver low-profile convenience and waterproof protection
  • Pertex® Diamond Fuse technology resists abrasion without adding unnecessary weight
  • Construction is light, small and crushable, making gaiters easy to stuff into a small pocket when not in use
  • Replaceable Hypalon® instep straps secure the bottom of the gaiters down around your shoes—and make in-field repairs easier in the event of a gear failure
  • Hook-and-loop front closures, elastic across the back heels and reinforced boot lace hooks secure your fit
  • Drawcord cinch at top hem
