User Review: Outdoor Research Expedition Crocodiles

Completely durable and functional, these gaiters are a good investment if you're in the market for a pair.
- Highly durable
I've had these gaiters for about three years now and have started using them a lot more in the last year since making a move to Alaska. Most of their use comes during hunting season, but they're out on a lot of backpacking trips and an occasional winter foray; they're also handy if you find yourself doing a lot of shoveling after a couple feet of snow.
Paired usually with leather boots, they do a great job of keeping things dry and keeping me from snagging and ripping pant legs and rain pants during the all too frequent bushwhacking required to get just about anywhere around here.
I would recommend trying them on before buying because I definitely had to get a larger size than I thought necessary in order to get a decent fit, but the fit is very good and the material is burly, including the strap and velcro.
Based on my experience so far, I expect these to last for a long, long time.
