User Review: Outdoor Research Expedition Crocodiles
Fabric: 3-layer 70D Taslan Gore-Tex® upper leg + 1000D Cordura
Price Paid: $55
They are light and sturdy; this is the first impression without the crampons. As long as the user is cautious while using the crampons, there is no other real danger one can damage these gaiters.
The only drawback that I noticed is the plastic velcro strap turnaround buckle. It should have been much better off if they were metal. Mine is intact but if you pull the velcro strap to hard, that plastic piece might snap and you are doomed, so be careful with that.
