Rated 5 out of 5 by CrazyJane Trendy Dog Walking Gaiters
I purchased these gaiters because the bottom of my trousers would get muddy and wet when walking the dog out at the forest preserve. They work great for keeping my pants clean, and they are easy to put on. What I did not bank on is that they actually look trendy and sporty, even though they did not look so online, and were the cheapest pair LLBean had - Bonus!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zeezee1 Really good Gaiters, but...
These Gaiters seem well made, and I'm glad I bought them. Two comments, however: first, while trying to put them on the first time, I had trouble with the buckle that holds the strap that goes under the boot. The "tongue" of the buckle came off (I can fix it, but things just shouldn't break the first time you use them -- even minor things.) Second, there is no "easy on - easy off" option for these gaiters. There are straps, buckles, velcro and hooks that must be fooled with each time you put them on. My last pair of gaiters had many adjustments too, but they also had a zipper up the side so that once you got them adjusted the first time, you could put them on, zip up the zipper, and go. (Those lasted 35 years!) OVERALL, I THINK THESE GAITERS ARE A GOOD VALUE FOR THE MONEY, AND SEEM LIKE THEY WILL LAST. They are fine for those of us who are confronted with the occasional snow storm. Not so great for those who might be needing them every day in the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MountainHiker Ideal midweight gaiter
The gaiters are easy to put on, easy to clean, and perform very well for all my hiking needs. They are not the sort of heavyweight items one might want for serious mountaineering and snow work, but they are perfect for the sort of hiking and snowshoeing I do. Given the moderate price, they are a real bargain.

They are a little complicated, but that is the way gaiters are. Can be adjusted to fit well. Just as portrayed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dt98 Perfect for winter fun
Purchased these before a winter vacation in Maine - used them while hiking, snow-shoeing and crosscountry skiing. Very comfortable and kept my legs dry!

Rated 4 out of 5 by southbynorthsports Product is good value and fits the need
The delivery time was perfect for snowshoeing in Michigan. The lightweight and waterproof combination was good protection in the deep snow. The features made putting them on and staying on very easy and functional

Rated 5 out of 5 by TexanUpNorth Work like a charm - no more snow in MY boots!
I realized that these gaiters would be a good addition to my winter sports wardrobe after returning home from a snowshoeing hike to find my pant legs covered in snow and bits of snow nestled between my boot top and my socks. I read other reviews about them fitting tight around the calf, so I ordered the medium size since I have fairly muscular legs. The fit was perfect! They were easy to put on and take off and were long enough to cover my entire lower leg. And now the little metal D-ring on my L.L. Bean snow boots makes perfect sense for the lace hook on these gaiters. The combination of this hook and the under-arch strap kept them firmly in place during my subsequent hikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OceanPointPete Love is in the snow
A romantic gift for my snow shoe loving wife on Valentines Day. I choose from black, black, black or black. I had promised red, but such is life. Easy on, easy off. They keep the snow off of her pant legs and out of her boots. I am a fan of gators, and now my wife is too. A good value because they backed by the L.L. Bean guarantee which made it a guaranteed quality purchase. My Bean gators have had heavy use and I have worn them for a decade. I expect these to last at least as long.
