Summary

Our top of the line gaiter, updated from top to bottom for even greater fit and comfort. Designed for mountaineering and backpacking, this snug-fitting gaiter will protect you from dirt, scree, debris -- even crampon snags, thanks to extra heavy-duty fabric shielding your instep. Yet the stretch back panel and elastic top strap ensure ultimate comfort and uninhibited range of motion. The top of the gaiter secures with a simple ladder lock that works like a climbing harness for secure, fasten-once-and-forget-it convenience. Redesigned foot straps are adjustable from either side and repairable in case they ever break in the field.

Reviews

Ascent™ Gaiter 3.5 5 2 2
Well made, but run large This review is strictly based on fit and perceived quality since I haven't worn them out in the snow yet. These gaiters run extremely large. I wear a 10.5 in hiking and mountaineering boots (La Sportiva Trango for reference) and first ordered a large. I wasn't able to tighten them down enough to get a proper seal around the boot and snow would have come up through the bottom if I had used them. The size chart says that I could have even bought an XL (10-14). I returned them for a medium (6-9?!) and they fit properly. The quality seems to be very good, but I will update this after I have put some miles on them. December 3, 2014
Foot strap buckle broke the first day of use The gaiter material and foot strap seem very durable. You get the option for replacing the straps in the event that they break which I think excellent feature. However, the foot strap buckles are not durable and cannot be replaced. Mine broke the first day of use. I'm a firm believer of trying something on before I get it but saw on the sizing chart that an XL would fit boot sizes 10-14. I wear a size 12, so I assumed that with a few minor adjustments I would be good to go. Not the case. The gaiter felt pretty baggy and wouldn't stay clipped to the top of my boot regardless of how I adjusted the foot strap. November 11, 2014
