Verglas Gaiter

From technical ice to tricky bushwhacks, count on the Outdoor Research Women's Verglas Gaiter to keep you dry, comfortable, and protected. The slimmed down design is lighter and more packable than the Crocodile Gaiter while still offering the same performance fit and reliable waterproof breathable protection. Plus, this gaiter has a larger calf and shorter length to provide a fit that's tailored specifically for women.

  • Burly three-layer Pertex Shield fabric provides waterproof breathable protection
  • Highly abrasion-resistant 500D Cordura on the inner leg and boot protects against sharp crampons and plastic boots
  • Increased volume in the calf and a shorter overall length provides a women-specific fit
  • Slimmed down design is lightweight and highly packable
  • Wide hook-and-loop front closure is quick and secure
  • Reinforced boot lace hook secures the front closure to the boot
  • Durable Hypalon instep strap keeps the gaiter securely in place

Dry and warm in 8 degrees F.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used these over my hiking shoes (not boots) while snowshoeing around the Mt Washington are in New Hampshire in 8 degree F weather with 28 inches of snow on the ground.. They fit snug without binding and kept snow out of my shoes completely. The little cleat in the front kept them in place perfectly They also kept my calves warm-an added bonus! And nice purple color!

Dry and packable

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought these for my wife and they work great. They aren't as burly as the crocodiles but they are still waterproof and will pack a lot smaller. She uses them for going out and feeding the goats in the winter, snowshoeing, winter hiking, etc. They are easy to toss in a pack if you think you might encounter snow on your adventures.

Thanks so much, Chris!

Bought these for my mom for her winter snowshoeing adventures. She's used them once so far and found them easy to use and gave good protection in deep snow.

Thank you for the review!

Well made but wish they had elastic

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I really liked these but decided to not keep them out of concern that they would be falling down. I'm a slim/petite female and the strap at the top barely got tight enough to hold up. I wish they had elastic draw strings instead. Otherwise I would have kept them if they were a hair smaller!

Dust-proof 3/4 height gaiters

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I used these gaiters to hike Kilimanjaro and they were a god-send with all the dust on the trail when I went. Luckily, I didn't need to use them in the rain (so I cannot comment on their mud/water/snow repulsion), but I was a huge fan of them for hiking in dusty conditions every day, and sliding down the scree after the summit!

These gaiters do not reach the knee, which I don't mind. The velcro up the front keeps the gaiter from slipping down, even when the top clip is undone, and I'm glad to keep more of my leg ventilated. When I'd finish each day, the portion of pants under my gaiter was always sweaty!

My annoyance was with the clip for laces as my hiking shoes had a center tie on the top laces and I had to put the clip off-center on the shoe. This made the clip less secure, and I usually had to adjust it 2-3 times each day to keep it in place.

Overall, I am happy with these and would recommend them for Kili!

Thank you for the review, Ruth. Really hard to get a gaiter that really breathes well and is waterproof. Even Gore gaiters can leave you sweaty! Really depends on humidity as well.

Happy Trails,

Sizing is off

    I had to return these because they only came up to about mid calf and would fall down while walking. I then bought some mens smalls and I love them!! They cover my entire calf.

    So sorry, Danielle! It's really hard to size gaiters. I am glad you got the right size for you!

    Stayed nice and dry

      Took these on a very wet trek to Owl's Head, you know one of those trails where you can't tell if you're on a trail or in a brook. They performed flawlessly.

      Gets the job done

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I used these gaiters for the first time today, post-holing up a mountain for 5 miles...and they worked great! The design is simple and clean, easy to use, and works well enough. I wear a size 7 shoe and am between sizes, so I ordered a medium thinking it would be good if a friend with bigger feet ever wanted to borrow them. After several hours of hiking, I started to get some snow in my boots, making me wish I would've bought the size small, as this likely would'nt have been an issue if I had sized down. If only the bottom of the gaiters were more adjustable to various shoe sizes....other than that I LOVE them!

      Great feedback - thank you!

      Kept my feet dry and stay up perfectly

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have worn Outdoor Research gaiters for years and these are great for keeping out the rain while backpacking. I am 5'5" and the Medium come up to just below my knees. My calves are not particularly big and these always stay up without a problem.

      The Good and Bad

        The water proofing of these haters are great. The function it provides I give it 4 stars, my feet have stayed dry snowshoeing though deep snow for many miles. Now for the bad; the fit of the gaiters is off. I'm only 5.4 and the gaiter only comes up to my mid calf. In the photo it appears that it will come up to your knee, this is not the case. I was so sad that everything else about

        Dry Feet = Happy Feet

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These gaiters are easy to adjust to get a perfect snug fit that will stay secure. How dare we say they are comfortable but in all truth these gaiters will make your powder trudging a lot easier. Give me a shout if you want to talk gaiters or powder trudging.

        Material Comparison

          On the left is OR Verglas gaiters with the SUPER WATERPROOF Pertex Shield & on the right is the OR Rocky Mtn. Gaiters with their water resistant material. HUGE difference. The Verglas Gaiters are built to last & keep you dry!

          Material Comparison

          Verglas vs. The Rocky Mtn. Gaiter

            The Hypalon instep strap on both gaiters are made well but the Verglas has a significantly stronger attachment of the strap to the Gaiter itself. The Verglas is on the left & the Rocky Mtn. is on the right.

            Wife LOVES them!

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            My wife has used these gaiters hard for a long time now & they look almost brand new. They breath well & hold out any bit of moisture that tries to get in. A wonderful Gaiter at an awesome price!
