Great Do-Everything Gaiters
The Expedition Crocodiles are the "gold standard" for functional, durable gaiters. I use them primarily for ice climbing and mountaineering, where you are more concerned about crampons puncturing your expensive outerwear pants. The Cordura all the way up the inside of the legs is a big plus in protecting your pants, and your legs from wayward crampons. I used my original Crocodiles for nearly 10 years, before I could not patch them anymore and the Velcro wore out. But I expect these new Expedition Crocodiles to last for years to come.

Bulletproof Gaiters
If Ghostface hiked he would have used these. Waterproof and completely weatherproof, they also add some insulation. Very well constructed and has a nice fit. When your braving the extremes these are the only choice.

Most Excellent
These gaiters are *excellent*. I believe them to be the best that are offered. Extremely waterproof & very well made, I couldn't be happier with this purchase. Previous reviews regarding sizing are on target ... XL worked very well for me. 6'1", 220 lbs, size 12 shoe. Thanks, Altrec.

Great product, runs large
Purchased size M to use in warmer winter conditions, already have size XL for very cold weather use. Works fine for my size 10 1/2 feet. Size M is also OK for me even in spring or fall. Too hot for summer.

Great Gaitors!
These gaitors are excellent. Solid construction and rugged materials. The velcro is very strong and actually takes two hands to separate. No issues with leaks snow etc., getting in the boot. Best used with boots that have a gaitor clip in. Overall an A+ outdoor product.
