Munro gaiters from Monarch are spot on. Tough, silent, breathable & waterproof, plus they do them in a larger size if you’ve got girthier calves like mine.

Dont get the yeti obsession.

Had them a long time ago and they are handy but no better really then a normal gaiter on a decent boot (granted they can extend the end fo life on an old boot) and they look really daft!

I’ve tried loads of gaiters the Munro are good, nice and quiet but fingers crossed they have sorted the zip issue mine did less than a season and the zips were knackered, Black islander are good very hard wearing I’m surprised to see in the comments they are quiet in heather I didn’t think so, Hunter elements do a very good gaiter tight fitting and low noise as are the Fjallraven singi.
Yeti are ok but I found if your constantly doing steep accents the toes would slip off even when glued and that gets fairly annoying as there a bitch to put back on.

Stoney creek are shaping up to be very good. I'm usually a Swazi fanboy, but their gaiters are designed for the snow, not properly waterproof and totally unsuitable for Scotland, unfortunately.

Mrs N has just bought the Hill Trek offering from Aboyne.

£55 and they can alter them for fit - add a bit to the length or take them in a bit to be less baggy.

I currently have Outdoor Research and they have been great but are pretty much worn out now and im looking at the Hill Trek ones as replacements.

Mark II's now have a heavier grade zip - we are currently awaiting new stock as demand has been high over the last month.

As mentioned in a previous post the Munro's were designed by myself (after many years of not finding a gaiter that suited) and Phil, some elements were taken from the old Kammo gaiter design which was probably recognized as one of the best gaiters in the market, a few folk are still wearing the Kammo's although they are a rarity these days..

Thanks

Do they come in a generous calf fitting?
