I walk a lot--in all seasons and climatic occurrences,. Winter in a non-tropical sphere can be challenging, particularly the precipitation. These gaiters work wonders in repelling most of the worst of winter weather. I wonder how they'll work in spring rain and whether they'll help prevent that annoying problem when the lower leg becomes drenched simply because raincoats are not long enough.

An improvement over the LLB gaiters we bought several years ago.
Velcro is better than the zipper, and the top buckle is better quality. The old style was a M/L, so ordering a size was a concern. We ordered a large and it works, but a medium would have worked also. Bought them to wear golfing in muddy weather.

I got these Gaiters to replace an old pair that worked but were difficult to put on. These are great!!! they go on in seconds and are excellent at keeping out the snow. We just had a foot and a half of snow. I did my driveway and my sisters and shoveled various walkways with no problems of them falling off or letting snow in.
These are listed as men's but I am a 5'3" woman and they fit very well. (I got medium). These are also great for bird watching in the cold and snow.

We purchased these over Christmas, and used them for the first time on a long Vermont weekend. Single digit temps one day, icy rain the next, and they kept us dry and comfortable.

I purchased this second pair for a co worker. We are out in the elements in upstate NY. My coworkers are hooked on them now! They are very easy to put on and remove! They are waterproof and keep your legs dry and warm. I wear these everyday over my work boots and pants from December to march! They still look like new and I have been using them for the third year now. DON'T STOP MAKING THESE MUST HAVE GAITERS!

I'm sure these Gators work well with LL Bean boots or hiking boots but they are too small to go around other brands of boots. I have a new pair of Sorel boots and the Gators would not go around the boot. I ordered the largest size available (XL) but I still could not get them to fit around my boots. They are currently being sent back for a full refund.

I bought this for a gift and just in time for the snow storm. They are easy to get on and keep you nice and dry. The material is well made and will order another one for me.

Excellent design--easy to put on and off; helped keep me warm in Churchill, Manitoba.
No deep snow, so I can't rate them on that...

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.
