REI Mountain Gaiters Video

Don't let mud puddles and snow patches keep you from enjoying your backpacking trip. The water-resistant REI Mountain gaiters water and debris out of your boots when you're on the trail.


  • Tough 420-denier polyester fabric has durable water repellent and polyurethane coatings to help shed moisture when you're stepping in puddles or hiking in the rain
  • 500-denier durable nylon scuff guards protect high-wear areas from abrasion
  • Heavy-duty 1.5 in. hook-and-loop front closures provide a secure and adjustable fit
  • Shockcord and hooks at the bottoms ensure a snug fit around many types of footwear; shockcords at the tops secure the gaiters around your calves
  • Rugged Hypalon® instep straps wrap underneath your shoes; buckle allows strap length adjustment


Gaiter sizes fit U.S. boot sizes as follows:

  • Small/Medium fits men's sizes 5 - 9 and women's 6.5 - 10
  • Large/X-Large fits men's sizes 9.5 - 13 and women's 10.5 and up
