I wore this while snowshoeing in deep snow and have never been better protected and warm!
Hi Trudi, thank you for leaving us a great 5-star review! We are so happy to hear that your gaiters have made snowshoeing an even more enjoyable activity due to the extra protection and warmth! Happy trails!
The fit and finish of these gaiters i superb, the stretch material is really nice. I have large calves and they were certainly snug, too snug to wear over snow pants for sure but they worked great for hunting worn over pants/long johns. The issue with the design for me was the upward facing lace loops, though it works much better for securing the gaiter to your boot, it also catches on brush. This would be much less on an issue snowshoeing or cross country skiing, but for bushwhacking in the summer/fall it definitely was a factor. My first time wearing the gaiters they tripped me up a few times and low and behold when I got back to my truck the hooks were bent out of shape. I reached out to CS and did not receive a reply. Still, great gaiters, especially if you're going to be sticking to trails.
I have worn these running through two foot deep snow and my legs dry.They are relatively breathable too so your legs don't get too hot.Easy to put on and take off once you watch one of the on-line videos and there are no problems with them slipping down.
I used this product for the first time this year upland bird hunting in the Dakotas and Eastern Washington.
This gaiter is amazing. I have tried many others and this is simply the best.
These gaiters performed as advertised. If I ever need another pair I will just get this product again.
It states to hand wash, when back from an excursion chasing upland birds I simple put them
in the wash with other like clothes and wash. I do not put them in a dryer, just hang to dry.
Holding up just fine.
Well done "Hillsound"
They are a little loud
