If you spend time outdoors, a good pair of gaiters will protect your ankles from the elements. Not just protecting you from water and snow, these gaiters will keep your ankles and lower legs safe from briars and other natural pests.
You will be getting THREE PAIRS of these Swiss Mountain Gaiters for ONE LOW price.
Features of the Swiss Gaiters:
These are the best! I use these when riding my motorcycle and keeps the cold wind and rain off my lower legs and feet. Small enough and lite enough to carry in my bags very easily and offer a tremendous amount of protection when needed. Price is right and they work perfectly. I would rate them at 10 stars if they had it. Have ordered 2 times and will add to my next order. AAA++++
I got these from another military surplus dealer but am writing my review here to help anybody who is researching them. These are very good gaiters, made of robber, vinyl, and wool with a waterproof coating on the outside. They're easy to figure out how to put on and they're very comfortable, the only discomfort I get from them is if I don't smooth my pants right. They're great for the snow and protecting your ankles from mud. I was also surprised to find that these worked just fine with my shoes and that I didn't need boots for them.
I hike and camp alot, and hate getting junk in my boots. These work great for preventing that annoyance. They're also great for keeping your jeans down over your boots on the motorcycle. Typical Swiss construction.
Brand new unused. Planning to keep two pairs for myself and give the 3rd pair as gifts to my brother-in-law who has two horses. Besides for rain protection, I am planning wear them when I am using the weed-wacker to protect myself from flying debris.
The 3 pack of gaiters I received are brand new! They are heavy build and rival the quality of any name brand equivalent. I will be ordering another three pack soon before they raise the price or sell out. I am going to save a set for my brother and father for Xmas. If your looking for a high quality gaiter this is it... No questions asked the best you can get for the price.
I was a little nervous at first that they might be two tight on the calve, but these fit great with a regular pair of pants. My calve measures about 16 1/2" at the largest point and these fit over a regular pair of BDU pants without issue. I am sure I could add a pair of long johns and still have plenty of "breathing room" Thick wool pants and large tall heavy boots could be an issue if you have large legs, but pairing these with a regular set of BDU pants or jeans with an under layer will work perfect! Highly recommended.
Thanks & "Keep shooting!"
I have used a pair of these for some time and decided to get a back up pair and give the other 2 pair as gifts. It would take quite awhile to wear out 2 pair. For me, they need to be worn with at least an ankle high shoe or boot. I get snow down the heel of low cut shoes. Might be just the shoes I have... My calves are about 16" around and these fit with sock, long underwear and light wool pants. Thick wool pants are a little too much to fit. Although the wool has some kind of coating on it, I haven't had condensation issues like I did with coated nylon ones.
It is hard to find good gaiters, let alone three at this price. These are very high quality, and it was obvious that all three were never used.
I keep a pair of these for farm use, always wear them hunting, and store a spare in the truck. They're not rated snake-proof, but are sure better than bare skin or blue jeans. They clean easily with a little soap and a brush. Well worth the price.
