Adventures are better shared.
Friends who bring out the best in others are the ones you want to climb with. That extra psych and stoke might be the key to sending your problem.
That's what partners are for; To spot, to share snacks, and to split the load from trailhead to crag. We find more joy in climbing with friends because they push us up harder routes, and at the end of the day they're still willing to tape up our flapper.
After all, it takes a team to bring home the send train.
Durable, traditional pack cloth construction and a no bulk low top design provide all season performance with the Rocky Mountain Low Gaiters. Pair these lightweight gaiters with hiking boots or cross country ski boots to keep rocks, dirt, and light snow from finding its way into your footwear.

I am 6-1, 190# and wear a size 13 Keen Mens Targhee Mid Hikiing boot.
The really important dimension however is the circumference of my leg at its smallest just above my ankle which is 9".
The other important point is the primary reason for getting these and what I won't be wearing with them - pants.
A typical hike for me is 12 miles with 3000+ feet of elevation gain.
I sweat a lot and always wear shorts when hiking unless it is below freezing.,,I live in the south so it would be rare for me to wear these with pants.
I bought these not so much to keep trash out of my boot but to keep water out of my boot. Specifically rain water running down my leg and filling up my boot. Or if I have a lot of stream crossing something to keep water from splashing into the top of my boot - at least slow down its entry. For 75% of my hikes I won't wear these because I don't want to trap even more heat and sweat in my boots. So an added benefit of the small size is less bulk and weight in my pack for something that I usually won't wear unless I get caught in the rain.
So...for how I will be using them the Large was way too big. It came up higher on my calf than the small but its not going to stay there and I don't want it that high - I want it just above the top of my boot. When it fell down to the top of my boot there was a lot of material billowing to the sides. And with my ankle circumference the elastic did not grip my leg and I could stick a finger between my leg and the elastic without stretching the elastic.
The small was a much better foot. Came just above my boot without billowing out. I secured the buckle in the third hole from the end of the strap. The elastic was not tight around the small of my ankle - it was actually still a little loose.
To keep rain from running down my leg and past the loose elastic top of the gaiter I shaved one blade width around my leg just above where I want the elastic top to sit. I will use Leukotape P to tape the top of the gaiter to my leg for a watertight seal. The tape is also good for blister prevention and many prefer it to moleskin.
It was frustrating not being able to figure this out without buying both so I hope this level of detail helps someone get where they want to be faster.
Recently bought a pair for my new wife and was poleaxed that OR didn't change a thing.
Do you ever get annoyed out of your mind how companies make a great product and then cheapen it up? Or change the model or outsource the manufacturing to some hell hole in Sri Lanka? Not this piece of gear.
It's as good as ever and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Should last many hikes before needing to reapply product.
