I did feel the need to make a couple very slight modifications to the gaiters for my own easy or use. I replaced the draw string at the top of the gaiter with a longer one. This allows me to tie them in front of my leg instead of behind. Makes it much easier to secure. I also replaced the strap the goes under the boot with a small bungee cord. I crimped the hook on one end of the bungee cord to the grommet on the inside of the gaiter so it is semi-permanently attached. Once the gaiter is on, I can hook the other side of the bungee cord into the grommet on the other side, and I'm off. Much easier than tying and untying the cord that came with the gaiters.
the zipper in the back is a pain
the laces keep coming untied,, both those around the ankle and under the shoe
with some modification it could be a geat product and the price is right
if you are willing to sew velcro colosure on the front and forget the zipper and replace the laces
it is worth it,, otherwise don't bother good luck
They also didn't come with any strap/stirrup, so they was no way to properly anchor them. I ended up getting frustrated and had one of those "why am I carrying these" moments and actually deposited them in a trash can at the Head of Dean camp rather than carry them another meter. The tie strap on the upper piece also came loose easily.
Excellent value for the price.
Workmanship of the item appears quite good.
I wear these in with my Vasque Wasatch GTX boots. These boots were like a funnel for pea-gravel. One of my favorite trails has several patches where pea-gravel is prevalent. Before I got these gaiters, the gravel would be in my boots the instant I got on the trail. Maddening.
These gaiters come with a piece of black cordura webbing to be used as the "stirrup." I was initially skeptical that the furnished webbing was long enough. So, I substituted para cord for the stirrup function. In retrospect, I think the furnished webbing is adequate if you don't have your own ideas about stirrup construction. I ended up gluing (super glue) the knots on the stirrup so the knots cannot come undone. After several short hikes, the knots are still secure, and the para-cord is none the worse for wear.
The zipper is not impressive looking. So far though, the zippers have not given me any trouble. It is a skinny little zipper though.
The front of the gaiter clips to the boot's shoelace by a metal clip. The top of the gaiter closes with a nylon-cord drawstring. I would have preferred an elastic cord to keep the top of the gaiter more secure. It looks like a simple task to substitute the existing cord at a later time if I want to make that another project.
It took me a few minutes initially to figure out how to get the gaiters on properly, and get them correctly adjusted. The first step is to figure out how long you want the stirrup. Too long, and the gaiter will ride over the boot. Too short, and you won't be able to negotiate the zipper. Allow some time before your first outing with these to sort out the correct length for the stirrup.Read more ›
A good price/performance value.
I looked for a chip ankle gaiters in Amazon, I ordered them not expecting a lot, took them for a week hike in the mountains and discovered that this is an excellent item, kept in its place all the time, kept my Asolo Fugitive GTX clean inside and on the top, I put half my leg in mud and the inside of my boots were clean all the time. I highly recommend this item.
Only thing is that during your hike don't take them off because you need to really clean them before the zipper attaches again.
