Price Paid: £40
Be careful if buying this product. The gaiter itself is very good for mountain wear (I bought it on the strength of a previous pair of MH gaiters that lasted 7 years). But, the new pair lasted only 3 days.
MH seems to have recently changed the buckle, using one that is too flimsy to last on a pair of gaiters. The nib on the buckle is so flimsy that you could bend it with your fingers and it simply won't last. The straps on the gaiters came loose as a result on the third day I wore them.
The gaiters have been replaced under warranty but the replacement ones have the same flimsy buckle.
It's a shame, because MH gear is generally very good.
