Alright folks i'm jist wondering if anyone on here uses Yeti Gaiters on there boots and wot they think of them?
I have jist been up to a new moor with my dogs and 1 of the keepers swore by yeti gaiters, first time i've seen anyone wearing any for 20 odd years. But bottom line is i have had to pour out and empty the water out of both pairs off my leather boots 3 times last week in fairness the weather was horrendous some days, but both pairs are a very good pretty expensive make and well dubbined.
Think it might be a better way to go buying cheaper boots and wearing the yeti's on top. But i'm sick of gettin wet feet in decent boots. He was gettin 2 years out a pair for £65 and using them every day on heather a pretty harsh life.
For those that dinae ken wot yeti gaiters are, they are made by berghaus and basically are a goretex sock that fits very tightly over ur boot and u leave them on ur boots semi permantly. In the old days they would only fit top end berghuas boots as the had a special groove cut into the soles but seemingly they now are fairly universal and will fit most boots but a real struggle to get on.
Jist wondering if any people had any tried them? Also do shooting boots type leather boots have a rigid enough type sole to take them, he used stiffish mountain/hike boots. On way home a couple of shops stocked them but the folk in shops didnae really ken if my boots were suitable, don' want to spend that money if not going to work.
Cheers for any advice/experience
