  • GORE-TEX nylon uppers are waterproof and breathable; durable lower panels of coated CORDURA® nylon are lined with packcloth
  • 2 in. wide hook-and-loop closures at the bottoms allow for an adjustable fit with different boots
  • Tops close with adjustable 0.75 in. wide nylon webbing straps and low-profile cam buckles
  • Tapered at the ankles to reduce crampon-catching fabric; asymmetric bottom edges provide a sleek, snug fit around boots
  • Rugged BioThane® webbing instep straps with buckles secure the fit; instep straps are replaceable
  • Double-riveted boot lace hooks help keep gaiters from shifting


Fit note: Outdoor Research recommends sizing down 1 full size for best fit with lightweight hiking boots, shoes or trail runners. When wearing your gaiters properly, the instep strap buckle should lie on the side of your shoe, not underneath.
