The magazine chose the Hillsound Super Armadillo gaiter as one of its top six gaiters in the world. The review says the gaiter is perfect for “rough and tough” climbing and utilizes the highly abrasion resistant SuperFabric material to fend off crampon spikes. The Super Armadillo is a gaiter of two halves: the breathable and waterproof Flexia on the top, and the bottom’s SuperFabric, which the magazine says is a “bit like Cordura, only more so.”
