I have the SG gaiters and I like a lot of things about them. The calf adjustment is awesome—the only other gaiters I’ve had that stayed up as good are OR.Sg gators.
I think I have had them for four or five years now and have done 5-10 hunts a year. Still in great shape. My favorite attribute about them is the adjustment in the calf. I have skinny legs and I can get them tight on my leg from ankle to top of my calf.
Outdoor Research. the pair I have are super old but still holding up well.I'm in the market for a new pair of gaiters. In a perfect world, they'd go hunting sometimes, skiing sometimes, hiking sometimes... They'd be a drab color, tough and they wouldn't be super noisy either, if they rub against each other. And they need to be able to fit around legs that are not skinny!
What do you use? Do you like them?
Likewise, Outdoor Research with snaps, zippers, and velcro closures. I've worn them for over twenty years, with only need to replace one zipper. They are my go-to hunting gaiters for brush, rain, or snow.I use Outdoor Research, black, velcro front closure. They "stand up" on their own, keep my pants and boots dry. I use them more for rain and wet brush than I do for snow (Oregon). I also like that when I come back to camp, my pants aren't wet and muddy and I can hang the gaiters over the fire or stove.
