Rated 5 out of 5 by from Burly I have used these same Gaiters for several decades. In a word that are Burly. Well made, excellent fitting, and easy use. I use them for skiing, ice climbing, hiking, mountaineering and SAR missions. They have traveled the world in my pack and on my boots.They do it all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so durable as expected After 9 months of use undershoe strap belt for left leg gaiter was slit in half. Did not expect it to be so fragile for such quality and price equipment. Huge disappointment. Local distributor said that is normal wear :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! I bought these for my walk to school through the snow packed trails in MI. Exactly what I needed to keep the snow out of my boots. I also use these when I go snowshoeing and they are excellent. Comfortable and they don't come loose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No complaints so far Just did a winter hike up Cadillac mtn in chilly Maine to see sunrise for the New Year and these did the job. My one gripe was what felt like a small tab on the front to hook the laces. Not sure how this could be improved but it came off a few times mid climb/descent and was very difficult to get back under my laces with gloved hands. Alternatively I'm sure this is smaller/lighter/more likely to not snag on other stuff by being so minimalistic so I'm going to keep trying and see how things end up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this for my husband Christmas 2017. The product is awesome. The only problem I had was with black diamond is when I ordered it. The box was taped with black diamond tape and my husband knew what his gift was. Maybe around the holidays use blank shipping tape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and effective! Gaiter are a brilliant peice of kit. When your a nube they can save your pants from clumsy crampon snagging. They fit small, I am a medium for everything... With these I am a large (with ice climbing boots and Gore-Tex pants).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gaiters! My husband had a pair of these that lasted him more than 15 years! He loved them so much I got him another pair for the Holiday and he's as in love as he was with the original pair! They are super breathable and he wears them hiking and ice climbing mainly. He's 5'9" and they are a great height for him and stand nice and tall on his shins. They are waterproof and are fantastic at keeping his legs warmer on a cold/blustery day. When this pair bites the dust 15+ years from now, we'll be getting him another of this exact pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I got these for my husband as a gift. His last pair finally wore out after more than 15 years. These fit well with his hiking, climbing and cross country ski boots. He absolutely loves these and recommends them to everyone looking for tall gaiters!
