Rated 5 out of 5 by luvtwohike I have been tick-free!
I have worn these on maybe 6 hikes during this tick season and I have not had a tick on me yet. On the last hike I was in some tall grass and a friend was with me. She had ticks all over her pant legs despite them being drenched in 40% DEET. I didn't have any.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brogers Great Product!
We're from Virginia and have not found one tick or chigger since using these gaiters. We're choosing to believe it's this excellent product and not dumb luck that has protected us.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Appyfive Good for keeping ticks off
The right color and the right idea to keep ticks from crawling up your legs; however, the gaiters don't stay very tight on the top and they constantly slip down my legs and bunch up above my boots. They would work much better if there was some way of tightening them on your pants as with winter gaiters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shylo1 OR BugOut Gaiters
The gaiters strong points are that they are ruggedly built, easy to put on, and totally secure in their use. The negatives are that they are too billowy and although their topmost secure position irritates both my lower legs but I cannot tell why, maybe it is the impregnated resin. But I have worn them on three 9 mile hikes with excellent protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bvanwoert great product
I have a paralyzed left hand and arthritis in the right one so I was a little concerned about difficulty in putting them on. The first time was a challenge but by the third it took less than 3 minutes for the pair. I have worn them all day since I got them and they are trouble free. Given the increase in ticks this year I expect I will keep them on whenever I am out side. OR gaiters are the best and these are no exception.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Royezz Nice fit
This is my 1st pair of Gaiters, so I have nothing to compare them to. They fit very nicely and feel well made. I have not used them on a hike yet, but have worn them around the house with my hiking boots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FitDoc low gaiters
(After initial use) These gaiters were used during a Boy Scout Klondike Derby and performed well. They kept boots cleaner and debris away from top of boots. Was unable to evaluate "bugout" feature in this weather. Gaiters appearance was good and they seem to be well made.
Only slight negative so far after one use is the positioning of the strap under the sole. It seemed a little far to the rear making it difficult to position correctly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Natural1 If you are thinking about them, get them
I cannot comment on the ability of these to repel insects, but they work well for the basic purpose. I wore them hiking through brush as deep as my thighs, and they made a noticeable difference protecting the covered areas. After a few uses to get the hang of it, removing and replacing them becomes easy. They feel very solid and inspire trekking confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hammer4400 Safari
I ordered these gators to go on Safari in both South Africa and New Zealand. They worked perfect and prevented much pain and suffering do the the many thorns and sharp grass that covers these countrie. I hate to think of the pain and suffering that would have occured without them. I highly recommend this product
