They seem like a quality piece of kit for hiking but are they ever loud! The little beads around the ankle if you rub your ankles together ate insanely loud. Your never going to sneak up to an Elk wearing these things.
To bad, other than that I do like them but as a hunter theh are a big waste of money!
Hi Brian, we are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience with the Super Armadillo Gaiters. We appreciate your feedback and will express it to our product development team. Thank you!
I have used the gaiters for the better of 2 weeks now. No major flaws to highlight. Designed impeccably, well built and very comfortable. I use gaiters quite often throughout the year and decided to order a second (spare) set of inset straps - typically the weak point on gaiters. Customer service by telephone wanted to verify if I could even order a second pair as inset straps as these straps are not a typical sales item. I never heard back even though the representative said she would verify with her supervisor and follow up with me. On the other hand, Customer Service by email (Joshua) was great and quickly sent me a second pair by courier service.
Thanks for the positive feedback on our Super Armadillo Gaiters! We apologize for any inconvenience with the phone call, but we're glad our email support could help. Those straps will be arriving soon! Enjoy your adventures!
Super Armadillo™ Gaiters [US]
We are glad you are enjoying your Super Armadillo™ Gaiters! We hope they continue keeping you dry, clean, and protected when needed!
After five years of use (ice climbing and mountaineering) and my MEC Kokanee Gaiters are still functioning.
After one day of ice climbing my Super Armadillo™ Gaiter fall apart. Fabric on lower part of gaiter is very weak. I would not give even one star if I could.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We value the quality of our gear and are very sorry to hear about the issue you had with the Super Armadillo™ Gaiter while ice-climbing. All our gaiters come with a limited lifetime warranty, and although this is not a common issue with this product, we have passed on your feedback to our product development team. We have also sent you a direct email to resolve this issue further.
My first time with Hillsound gaiters and I am so impressed. These have mastered the adjustable fit and do not slide or move around during activity. They are exceptionally water resistant & insulated and have performed very well in deep Montana snow. I would highly recommend!
