Won’t get to try them out till mid March we are on vacation.
Worn these gaitors in warm/dry and cold/wet environments. Perform great. Biggest thing is that they fit GREAT.
The cut/fit is perfect. There's no extra material to catch on crampons or snowshoes
The material is bulletproof neither my crampons or snowshoes have punched a hole or rip them.
A couple of improvements would make them even better
-the band that goes under the boot could be 1-2 holes longer. I wear size 13 and I use the last hole in the band and need to pull them tight to close the Velcro.
-the hook at the front needs to go on the bottom layer of fabric. This would allow the hook to go on first then the Velcro to be done up.
very well made, good replacement for my kuiu gaiters
Did two Catskill Mountain peaks Jan. 14th. Only a few inches of snow but the gaiters worked great. The quality is top notch, and the bottom strap and buckle are built to last. Very happy with these.
