Simply a GOOD product
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
As a Trail Maintenance and Construction leader I am in 'junk' up to my knees [literally] for much of my working day. I have found these gaiters TOTALLY capable of keeping me engaged with my crew and work assignments. No need to find a stump or rock [as a seat] after my boots become overtopped and filled with duff and soil!
During a winter recon session to site new trail, I'm up to my thigh in snow all day and my feet remain dry!
One issue; after several seasons of really DIFFICULT/HARD use, the velcro tabs on the lower front of these things has given-up. Through miles of nettles, grasses and brambles the velcro no longer holds. Meh! I'm buying a new pair!
Oh, as someone over 60 trips around the sun - the fact that these things are so light-weight is very much appreciated, even though they are attached to my boots every moment i'm on the trail...
