The British MkII Snow Gaiters are a pair of water resistant olive drab gaiters. Gaiters like these are designed to keep the lower section of your legs dry by providing a secondary layer of protection where your pants meet your boots. The olive drab color makes these gaiters ideal for use in suburban areas where you may not want to wear military gaiters that have a camouflage pattern.
British MkII Snow Gaiters
The British MkII Snow Gaiters are a modern military issue gaiter made from material similar to Gore-tex. Light weight, water resistant, and breathable these gaiters are ideal for wearing over your boots for extended periods of time in bad weather. Soldiers in the British Army have been issued this model of Gaiters since the 1990s and it continues to be the standard issue gaiter for the British Army.
British MkII Gaiters are designed to be easy to deploy by soldiers in the field. The entire side lengths of each gaiter feature a zipper that is made to last by YKK and covered by a velcro sealed flap. The top of each gaiter stays in place by using the elastic drawstring style closure that will allow the gaiter to stay in place without restricting movement. On the bottom of each gaiter is a rubber strap that goes underneath your boots and is secured in place by the fastening system to keep the gaiters snug so they perform in bad weather.
