Thread: Gaiters

  1. #1


    Have long been suspicious of the actualy waterproofness of my Harkila Gaiters so i am not looking for some new ones.

    Had a quick look on the Blackislander site and nearly had a heart attack, 64!!!

    Are the standard blackislander ones any good?

    What else do people use, i need them plenty long thanks to my lanky legs so that i dont end up with a gao between my breeks and the gaiters

    Had a look at the Yeti ones from berghaus, might get some if i find a second pair of boots to put them on!

    I wear a pair of barbour waxed ones for beating and stalking. They're waterproof and I like that I can reproof them. They do take some hammer though, so I reproof them more often than I would a coat. The straps that go underneath the boot are a bit rubbish so I've mod'ed them with cable ties. They're ok now. Not sure about length as I wear mine with trousers.

    If you want noisy ones for beating, wear the N.A.T.O. issue ones!

    I use Kammo gaiters they ok but the lace you get to hold them under your boots can go straight in the bin.

    Yeti's, cant fault them.

    Unfortunately they are actually designed for a solid sole, not the flexi sole you find on most boots now.

    I use a drop of Evo Stick Impact Adhesive on the rubber toe of my boot and then on the mating face of the gaitors rand.

    Works a treat.

    One word of advice, once you use them, peel the gaitor all the way down to "air" the boot, my lace eyelets rotted on the first pair of boots I had them on, no problems this time round. They are as good as wearing wellies.

    My wife has a set on her boots for walking the dog.
