Hiking gaiters will keep rocks, grit, burrs and pine needles out of your boots, but the Outdoor Research Bugout Gaiters will also keep mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies and chiggers out, keeping you focused on logging miles instead of swatting and dumping shoes every few hundred steps. These boot gaiters are made from durable 8 oz nylon packcloth and treated with a chemical repellent called Insect Shield which is odorless, EPA-registered and good for 70 washings. Offered in 4 sizes to give you the perfect fit over hiking boots or shoes, the double-riveted lace hook and the ultra-durable Hypalon instep strap will keep them snug. From field research in Nicaragua to a day hike during tick season in the coastal foothills of California, the Outdoor Research Bugout Gaiters are ideal for any adventure where youll be rubbing elbows with hungry bugs.
