Product Description

Like their namesakes, Crocs have been around forever. The instep strap is replaceable, and an additional tab holds the front opening down, but otherwise they remain unchanged. The fitted design and durable, waterproof fabrics are as effective now as ever.

Customer Reviews

These have nice wide Velcro and go together very easily.
R. Denley
If I go too big, say an XXL,(based on each size seems to add another inch in the calf region) then they won't fit around my boots..
R. Burnthorn
Never had snow get inside my winter boots or in my pants at all.

Gaiters in general:
It's important to keep the bottom of your pants dry (and of course the dreaded wicking upwards); it's apparent when you go hiking with your friends and they all end up with wet pants (whether walking in the [well below freezing temp] snow or wet brush). Thick (and durable) and breathable gaiters help with versatility for both winter and wet spring/fall.

Thoughts on (Outdoor Research) models:
These "crocodiles" have the extra weight fabric, wider velcro seam, and an extra velcro tab at the front base, which totally helps to keep the velco seam from unraveling; and, comes in an XXL size--over their "verglas" counterpart. The "expedition crocodiles" would just be a heavier step up (fabric wise).

Thoughts on sizing:
XXL fits 12-15 boot size (or euro 46-50), as opposed to XL, which fits 10-13 or euro 43-47--I bought the XXL for my size 13 (or euro 47)--could be a bit snugger in the leg area, especially the top closure that I seem to have fully tightened and the leg area seems just a tad baggy (which I could use the wide velco seem for adjustments: over lapping the seam a bit, but don't want to have that non-battened edge that could get opened by snow build-up; i.e. perhaps your choice of sizing would be better influenced by your perception of your leg size, and I would suggest *NOT* oversizing as you can always give slack in the underbelt and under lap the wide velco seam and have the bottom wrap higher on your boot (assuming you are using boots and not hiking shoes)).

Bottom line:
LOVE THEM!

I've owned OR Crocodiles for years and have never had even the slightless issue. They are completely bombproof. The strap underfoot is incredibly durable and the hook and loop closure provides a tight, custom fit. I've worn these on winter slogs, spring mud stomping, wading across streams in the Adirondack mountains, hiking in the rain and they have always kept me warm and dry regardless of the weather or conditions.

Color Name: Chili/BlackSize Name: XX-Large Verified Purchase
I live in a country in Asia where during a certain period of the year, it rains cats and dogs almost everyday. I'm 6'1" and am considered big in my country or most parts of Asia and hence the things I need to use will be bigger in most cases, including umbrellas. I don't enjoy carrying an umbrella, and foldable ones are too small to use so I relied on a poncho. The poncho protects me everywhere except the sleeves of my pants. It rained so heavily that the inside of my boots were completely drenched and I literally poured water out of my boots.

Initially I was looking at waterproof pants but it wasn't easy looking for one that can fit me wearing my jeans and I happened to chance on gaiters. I've never heard of gaiters before simply because the topic never came up in any conversations I had with anyone and no one locally uses it since we don't experience snow. I chose gaiters in the end because its easier and less awkward to put on gaiters at the bus stop than pants.

I finally settled on Outdoor Research M's Crocodiles gaiters simply because its one of the few that comes in XXL across brands. My huge calves both measure around 21.5" and these pair of gaiters supposedly fit up to 22". Putting them on , it looked a bit awkward as some of the Velcro material is still exposed which could mean that either that it doesn't fit up to 22" or I just don't know how to put it on. I can't ask anyone but I try my best to cover as much of the Velcro as i can and though when I put it on, it doesn't look like in the picture, it still covers majority of the Velcro and works extremely well against water.

I tested it in the shower with my boots and was amazed that the water beads up and falls to the ground.

These rather expensive gaiters did not live up to my expectations. They are stylish and use good materials but their construction has problems. I used them in a recent weekend trip only to discover that the snow is pushed upward and inside between the gaiter and the side of the boots. All my previous gaiters used elastic at the bottom in order to secure a good fit between the gaiter cloth and the boots, whereas this model relies in a perfect fit. Such perfect fit is hard to obtain also due to the natural arching of the boots on their inside.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: X-Large Verified Purchase
I'm a shoe size 11, which means I'm supposed to be an x-large according to the chart. There is a cinch on the top but the long velco on the overlap is the primary means of attachment around leg and the velco band isn't that wide. Even around my pants, the velcro didn't line up - the x-large was way too big. Given the design, I'm not sure why shoe length would be the primary sizing indicator. I would suggest buying closer to how you buy clothes, not shoes. My calf (no pants) is 14" at it's widest and XL is too big when I have pants on.

I returned the item so I can't comment too much on performance or durability, but these things were built solid. First impression quality score would be 4 or 5 star.

I am a shoe size 12US and am 6'2" and 242lbs. I ordered the Xlarge and am glad I did. These fit super snug around my mountaineering boots and fit well over crampons also. The top closures lack needed tightening space. This is easily remedied with multiple layers of pants. The material is of good quality. As for their functionality I have yet to use them in the ice so that is a story for later.
