Rated 3 out of 5 by SilverCat Too tall, too much Velcro
Purchased these for deep woods hiking to help avoid ticks, poison ivy, brambles, etc. These gaitors are too high for short legged people. They close only with Velcro. Returned in favor of my very, very old gaitors purchased for x-cross skiing. They are a better length, have both Velcro and snap closures, and are already among my equipment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1Baker Tricky gaiters
My old, old gaiters zipped up in the back so these were a bit of a challenge. I wear a size 7 1/2 boot for snowshoeing, read all the reviews, and ordered a size medium. They weren't large enough to fit over my boot and pants. So, I returned them and bought the large. It fits much better. I'm just struggling with the Velcro that's along the length of the gaiter because it's a new product to me. I'm sure you youngin's would do just fine and I'll get better. My old ones no longer worked and this seems to be the style of gaiters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gretagirl Just what I needed for the 2916 blizzard
I ordered these when I saw the forecast of the east coast blizzard. I ordered a large based on my large shoe size (womens 11). They worked great in 30 inches of snow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AbandonedDog nice gators
we haven't really put these gators to the test yet - however the fit is perfect I wear a women's shoe size 7 and I bought a Med gator and my husband wears a 10.5 shoe and he bought the Lrg. Unless you are wearing 2 inch thick soled boots, these gators fit as expected using the sizing chart. Looking forward to putting them to the test!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KMcGhee Gaiters are great!
My husband and I were so pleased with our gaiters we bought some for our son who works in the woods. They are light-weight but offer such wind-protection and waterproofing and are so tough that we use them for everything! Whether it's leisurely walks in the wet fields, or in deep, crusty snow, snowshoeing, x-country skiing, working in the woods or on the ramp at the airport, they are the perfect last, outer layer. You do need to order a larger size than you might think. I'm 5'3 and 125lbs and my gaiters are the Men's medium.

One of the best pieces of winter gear I've ever bought. I recommend this to whoever works outside in deep snow or even rain. They keep your bots and pants below the knee dry. Just make sure you buy the right size and have leather straps. I had gaiters from another store that had shoelace ties on bottom that lasted about two weeks before they broke. Very good value for the price. I highly recommend them. A liner would make them even better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by quintescence Great option instead of boots
I have worn these many times this winter in deep snow. I go on hikes in the woods with my dog (2 - 5 miles); these gaiters are the best! they fit with my trail shoes and don't fall down like some of the other reviewers stated.

Rated 3 out of 5 by enavigator Good-but not good
Based on previous reviews, I ordered a size XL. My snow boots are a size 10 and I thought the XL gaiters would fit fine. They did not !
I could only fasten the bottom under boot strap into the last hole and it positioned the gaiter too low on the boot to fasten the front lace hook. If the under boot strap could be made about three inches longer (Seems like an easy fix !) these gaiters would be SUPER. Otherwise these gaiters are very well made and would last a long time. I was disappointed that I was unable to use them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by june3 Great lightweight gaiter
I was really pleased with these gaiters. They are lightweight and provide great coverage for my recreational snowshoe treks or winter hikes. Note on sizing - I'm petite and the medium fits snugly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OutdoorsPersonBoston Excellent gaiters
I have been wearing OR gaiters for years and finally talked my husband into trading up from his old gaiters that took about 10 minutes to lace up. He regrets not making the switch to OR gaiters sooner! These gaiters are easy to put on, they stay in place and protect the leg/ankle very well. After several winters, I cannot detect any signs of wear.
