Rated 4 out of 5 by MtnMac Good, practical gaiters. Effective
These gaiters were very satistactory. Stood up to the test well, (and shipped very quickly at no expense). I wore them on a winter backpacking trip last weekend in the White Mountains and they worked perfectly even in rain/sleet. Also, the second day, I stepped on a tree branch and the ground around me suddenly collapsed several feet as I realized I was on a large snow drift surrounded by what I thought were stunted trees. Needless to say, my legs were buried and I had to pull myself out with snowshoes strapped on. I was very glad for the gaiters which prooved to have a good seal around my ankles.
I was somewhat concerned that the large would not be a good fit because extra-large were reccommended for my shoe size of 12 but were out of stock. However, I am glad that I got just the large size, any bigger would probably have been a bit loose. Something about these gaiters "looks" kind of cheap, but they are very lightweight (in a good way) and seem to be made from very high quality, waterproof material that won't tear easily by branches or thorns. Easy to use. Velcro, no zippers to break. Overall, happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sulli9999 Nice coverage!
I am a woman about 5'7" and 135lbs-ish. I purchased the men's medium because it's late in the season and they were all that we're available. I've worn them a couple of times for snow shoeing and cross country skiing. They kept me nice and dry. They have adjustable straps to cinch the top tighter if necessary. I have no complaints about these gaiters.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sh0pper plastic snap broke the first time tightened
First time my husband tried these on, the plastic snap on the top of one of them broke. Seems really flimsy, so I'm reluctant to replace them with the same ones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Demi72 Men's and women's size vary only slightly!
I bought these at the store and tried every Men's and Women's size on the display. I found little difference in the width and no difference in the length. I ended up buying the Men's large which is a bit too long, but usable. When I laid out the different sizes one on top of the other I found only 1/2 inch difference in the width between the Lg. Men's and the Lg. Women's; the length was the same. I am a size medium in everything else that I buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SleepyGiants Works well, no snow in my boots!
I've worn the gaiters a few times now while snowshoeing and I have nothing but positive things to say. They are easy to get on and all the straps are adjustable. At first, I was concerned that I didn't get the velcro closure just right and that snow might find a way through somehow, but this hasn't been an issue. When I take them off, I notice that they hold sweat moisture in as well as they keep water out - but I assume that's bound to happen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by simonsmother Men's Winter Walker Gaiters
I wore them once XC skiing, and they did a fine job of keeping the snow out of my boots, but when I was done the backs had crawled down under the heels of my boots. Thus I was walking on them, which will cause them to wear out in a hurry.
I will return them.
