The Berghaus Yeti Wilderness Gaiters are one of Berghaus ventures into supplying top notch gear to the European military sector. British armed forces have made extensive use of this gaiter from Berghaus in all areas of deployment. Soldiers have raved about how well the Yeti gaiters perform in extreme environments that have everything from water hazards to snow.
Since we've covered all the positives about the Yeti gaiters, the only real negative we have been able to find is the difficulty in fitting your boots into each of the Yeti gaiters. The main purpose of gaiters is to keep out water and debris from your boots, so a good quality pair of gaiters should be very tight when sealed against your boots. This is particularly true for gaiters like the Yeti that provide contact surface points on the sole of your boots, not just wrap around like more common gaiters. We found the above Youtube video that shows an ingenious method for getting your boots properly fitted into each of the Yeti gaiters, which solves the most common problem that customers have with Yeti gaiters.
I received a pair of brand new gaiters. Thanks KeepShooting!
