DESCRIPTION: If you are looking for gaiters that can take extreme abuse...you have come to the right place. Overbuilt is an understatement. We use a Cordura Nylon and Packcloth layering system, which stops water in its tracks (we have done tests...lots of tests). Rubber and Leather will not last. We utilize a USA Made Steel underwire with a rubber coating, which helps mitigate any substantial rubbing to the bottom of your boot. The gaiters feature a #10 YKK zipper and hook and loop Velcro closure, which is located in the back of the gaiter. This is to prevent debris and moisture from entering the opening and closure of the gaiter as you walk. Additionally, you have the option to tighten the top portion of the gaiter via elastic, hook, and loop. This is to maximize comfort and prevent moisture and debris from entering at the top. A G hook in the front of the gaiter can be used to hook the front to your shoe lace. You may need to double loop your Steel underwire (green) on the opposite D ring side of the G hooks to ensure your gaiters are properly tightened around your boots. Attach the wire to the black snap hook. The wire SHOULD NOT BE LOOSE. This process may take a minute longer than other gaiters on the market, but an extra minute is worth it when you have dry feet and your gear isn't falling a part in the field.
Mid Calf (13" tall) and Knee High (17" tall) are available.

Bad Ass Gaiters.
These things are TOUGH. Took me a minute or two to get them lined out on how they fit properly for me, but they stay how you put them on. Material and workmanship are above reproach (as is all of T&K’s gear). Absolutely top notch!!
When Pulled these gaiters out of the box I could see they were designed by a Marine. He may or not have been a tanker but these gaiters are built to withstand abuse.
Leg Gaiter Review
Once again, top tier quality shit from T&K. I bought these gaiters for my trip into the Bob this May for bear. I have no doubt that these things will hold up to the abuse that's definitely coming their way. Semper Fi. T&K rules.
Finally a Durable Gaitor for Backcountry Use
The title says it all. It’s refreshing to see a durable set of Gaitors. Most other stuff out there is dubious quality, comes in weak color options, and is produced overseas with ethically questionable labor and environmental standards. I’ve taken mine through deep snow, mud, slush, rocks, etc. and it’s been bombproof. This product really shows why T&K and USA made is such a better quality. I will be back soon for more T&K products.
Gaiters for Hell
These things are tough. I blow through gaiters like socks and even though I've only started to break these in, I can tell that they are going to outlive me. The materials are not only US made but they are bombproof and the stitching is clean, as well as burly. I like that the bottom strap is not a strap at all but a cable with no plastic or composite to wear out. There is a full zipper and velcro, both on the back which is preferable to keep random shit out while humping the hills. The communication from T&K was also great from the initial order to their thank you after the purchase. Overall, these are a great piece of kit from a killer company. I don't make purchases lightly so I am thrilled to be wearing the T&K brand on these gaiters and I look forward to years of abuse in them.
Best gaiters out there
These gaiters are bullet proof!! 100% recommend and will be purchasing more products through T&K in the future. Outstanding experience.
