Gaiters Water Proof are garments worn over the shoe and lower pants leg, and used primarily as personal protective equipment; similar garments used primarily for display are spats. Originally, gaiters were made of leather. Today, gaiters for walking are commonly made of plasticized synthetic cloth such as polyester.
Gaiters Waterproofs are a type of protective clothing for a person’s ankles and legs below the knee. Gaiters are worn when walking, hiking, running, snow legging especially orienteering, and rogaining outdoors amongst dense underbrush or in snow, with or without snowshoes. Heavy gaiters are often worn when using crampons, to protect the leg and ankle from the spikes of the opposite foot. Gaiters strap over the hiking boot and around the person’s leg to provide protection from branches and thorns and to prevent mud, snow, etc. from entering the top of the boot. Gaiters may also be worn as protection against snake bites. Snow, water, dirt, and pebbles have a way of sneaking into even the most waterproof of boots. To prevent this, put on some gaiters. Gaiters Water Proof covers the vulnerable tops of your footwear to fully protect your feet from the elements. These are designed for all-around hiking, snowshoeing, mountaineering, and cross-country skiing. They offer added protection against rock abrasion and water.
