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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by greengirl321 Just as they were shown
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EnjoyLife1 So easy to put on and wear
These gators are so easy to put on and wear! I bought myself a new pair because the strap on the bottom of my old pair would sometimes collect snowballs and turn to ice balls. These have a quick adjust buckle strap on the bottom that snow will not cling to. Awesome for this! They fit beautifully. The womens size is perfect for ladies. I don't even know I have them on until I go to take them off. This is where the 4 stars comes in: They sweat on the inside - not breatheable. On a hard workout hike/snowshoe, I get a "condensation" build up on the inside. But the ease of putting them on and the attractive look outweighs this by far! Slip your heal in, slide toe clip under lace, flatten out velcro closure up shin, fasten quick strap buckle below knee and you don't have to adjust them once!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Smartcart Nice, but not what I expected
I gave this a 3 star only because I don't care for the velcro closure - was looking for a side zipper. Did try them on and a medium was a bit small, for my liking, around the calf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Septuaginarian Easy to use, very effective
Wanting to stay warm and dry when using my new snowshoes, I also wanted gaiters that would go on quickly and easily. These fit the bill, taking little time to put on and take off, and keeping out snow and wind completely.
