I have two pairs of these gaitors, because they work so well. My first pair are the originals and are somewhere around ten or so years; with the second pair being six years old. I use the older pair about 40 hrs per winter for offtrack xc-skiing and the newer pair probably 150 hrs per winter for back country xc and snowshoeing. I don't baby these, they're just gear; but they're great gear that I rely on. For example, I've been thru thin ice (beaver ponds) three times this winter and between my quick scampering, goretex boots, and the gaitors' goretex, my feet stayed dry! My wife has two pairs, and our best friends are also wearing them. I highly recommend these.

Great Price for a great product
Living on the east coast you ether get a lot of snow or none at all This year has been Outstanding for snow, That's if you like the cold weather and snow, but always be prepared. these gaiters are great, they are very light and most important very secure , this my second pair and can't wait for the next snow storm. If you ever had snow go down your boots you'll know what I mean.

For a lighter gaiter, these are awesome. I hike mostly in the smokies where I don't feel I always need a gaiter. So, I wanted to have the option of carrying them around in my backpack. These do the trick. They're easy to put on, water resistant, and look good. If you're considering a lot of hiking in snow, you might consider something a little more durable, but for my purposes- light, occasional use, these work great.

perfect gaiters
These simple but well-designed gaiters fit nicely, adjust easily, and have been very dry and durable. In a world of mediocre (yet similarly priced) gaiters, these are the ones to get.

Great year round product
Great pair of gaiters. I initially purchased them for snow shoeing but have been using them pretty much year round. Have had them for about 3 years and they barely show any wear on fabric and hardware. I have the M size and it is a perfect fit for my size 8.5 Asolo Powermatic backpacking boots.
