    Gaiters

    Looking for a decent pair of gaiters, I use a pair of Barbour ones at the minute, only when it is soaking wet though and find them far too noisy with the velcro at the front. I have been looking about and was wondering about the Black Islander ones. Anybody got any feedback on these and which ones to go for (deluxe or not).

    Would appreciate any feedback.

    Hi Bryan

    I can highly recommend the Black Islander gaiters , I have a deluxe pair myself and have had them for nearly 3 seasons now and no sign of wear and tear, they seem to be very robust. Although the Velcro is at the front they are silent when on and unlike some gaiters they are easy to put on.

    regards

    I absolutely love the Kammo ones I have. They are falling apart now - but thats after ten times the use previous gaiters have lasted. Driving me crazy that after years of Kammo always 'being there', some sort of change has gone on and I can get no sense from their website or by phone - and no longer frequent the fairs they do attend - aaaargh!

    Second choice would be the Genesis gaiters by Hillman - but note they are no longer listed and got even less help from UK distributor.

    Both these are very quiet and the Kammo - despite being in tatters have only ever let in when I've been horizontal and bog snorkelling up in Caithness.

    In fact, taking a liberty if JF will forgive me but if anyone has any Kammo gaiters in Green or Photostalk ( or whatever it was called ) in their large size - new or in useable used condition, please get in touch because there's a deal to be done!

    Have a pair of BI's but in truth they are OTT for the stalking I have as a 'soft' Lowlander.

    I also have a pair from Paramo which are tuff and look good with jeans but not much else as they only come in blue.

    +1 for Kammo gaiters. Although I have never had the trouble getting them that Moray has had.

    Hard wearing ad they are sort of a cotton material Over a waterproof liner so they are silent.

    Moray - the last pair I bought was last year off their website, the pair before that was at the CLA game fait. I will be getting a new pair this year probably. If I do I'll let you know how!

    +2 for Kammo gaiters . Just throw away the piece of shoe lace you get to go under the boot as its not required and you have a cracking pair of gaiters that will last a good few seasons . I am now on season 5 with mine and still going strong ;0)

    I have had Black Islander Gaiters are they are great but not for heavy duty, like beating. If you have to push through thorns you will rip them like I have mine.

    I bought two pairs of Kammo gaiters about a year ago, I found some for sale on a web-site and bought them immediately. My old pair of Kammo's have been used to death. I have not found anything as durable as the Kammo, and I have tried lots over my 40 odd years of shooting.
