Outdoor Research Women's Rocky Mountain High Gaiters

rated 5 of 5 stars Study gaiters for all of your trudging needs! They keep snow and mud out, stay in place, and repel water. Only drawback, sweaty calves. Fit/Comfort/Adjustability: These gaiters are surprisingly comfortable for how sturdy they are—they're sturdy, not stiff! They work with trail runners or mountaineering boots. The adjustable straps under your foot and below the knee allow these gaiters to be used with a wide variety of footwear and pant options. And they stay in place when you fall off your bike....

Kuiu Yukon Gaiters

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The best I have found so far. Now a decent pair of calf to knee high gaiters are a must in my book for hiking and hunting. Even in country that is not wet and steep they are the best thing for keeping grass seeds and pebbles out of your socks and boots and helping to keep your feet dry. They also help save your calves from lacerations from vines and grasses. If you wear a pair of shorts combined with the gaiters you end up with only 4-6 inches of skin exposed to the elements and this gives you the… Full review

REI Activator Gaiter

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Nicely designed to stay down over running shoes, but they wear out fast. The gaiter material is slightly stretchy and breathes well, but the cords that snug the gaiters down over the foot aren't tough enough and it looks like the grommets will pull out after prolonged use. Remember the old, pseudo-Chinese saying: “Man who eat cracker in bead have crumby sleep!”? A runner’s corollary to that might be: “Man who run in sand get sand in shoes!” I don’t like running on asphalt, so here in… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Crocodile Gaiters

rated 3 of 5 stars OK product made of good materials but could easily be made better. These gaiters are OK, but they could be made much better if they extended further down the front of the boot with an eyelet hook to hook in the bottom boot lace to protect the entire boot. Caribou and Forrest Mountaineering of old made gaiters very similar to these but by extending the gaiter over the entire boot gusset and tongue they provided much better protection from mud, snow, and other muck. Could be an easy fix for a much… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Crocodile Gaiters

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Heavy duty gaiters for those times you need more than something to keep out dust. Thick protective panels stand up to sharp rocks and errant snowshoes. Tight fit around boots for keeping mud, snow or whatever you get into out of your boots. Full coverage from foot to knee keeps out snow and provides some shin protection as well. Fit & Comfort: Based on their sizing chart I originally ordered these in XL as my foot size falls right in the middle of that 10-13 US range. When they arrived and I… Full review

NEOS Navigator 5 STABILicers

rated 4 of 5 stars The Navigator 5 with Stabilicers are overboots with studs from NEOS. The Navigator Stabilicer has become the footgear of choice for those who work under the most demanding weather conditions. Just like studded snow tires on your car, Stabilicers are the best way to maneuver in treacherous terrains whether on ice and snow, trails, slopes or even your driveway. The Navigator provides a gaiter extension for high snow levels. Studs work with snowshoes. Don't wear these in the house. NEOS make all kinds… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Crocodile Gaiters

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bombproof. These gaiters are one of my favorite pieces of gear. They are not always needed, but whenever I do need them, they do the job impeccably. Fit: The size large fits well over my La Sportiva Trango GTX boots but does not fit over my plastic ski boots. It's a bit of a bummer they don't fit over my ski boots because it would have been nice when out on the glacier in the summer to keep snow out of my boots when it is too hot out to wear pants. However, having them fit over my ski boots means… Full review

Outdoor Research Sparkplug Gaiters

rated 4 of 5 stars I use these gaiters for trail running and they effectively keep sand and pebbles out of my shoes. They attach to your shoes with a piece of velcro on the back and a hook for your laces in the front. They only come with one pair of velcro attachments so I used pieces of velcro from a sewing kit for my other running shoes. So far, so good. Full review

Outdoor Research Women's Verglas Gaiters

rated 5 of 5 stars Rugged, durable, warm, waterproof... What else can I say, they are awesome! I bought these gaiters because they were on sale, not expecting that they would come in so handy. I could not have done without them this winter. I wore them on every hike in the backcountry and snowshoeing. They kept me warm and dry. These OR Verglas Gaiters are awesome! Full review
