Gaiters are hardware-intensive. Good ones are often intimidating for people lacking the inventory of snaps, zippers, rivets, hooks, straps and the tools to install them. So we plunk down significant bucks, accept “the one color in stock” and hope size “Medium” will fit.

The goal here is to deliver a functional and adaptable design trimmed out in such a way that most folks can easily & inexpensively collect the ingredients and won’t need special tools although more demanding options are discussed inside.
Size is determined by measurement around your boot cuff since these are
form-fitting gaiters. Height of the gaiters is plotted directly from your own measurements.
  • Four sizes fit from lightweight hiking to plastic, double boots.
  • All sizes allow the same wide height adjustment range.
  • Form-fitting design is less apt to snag or trip you up.
    An important feature particularly when wearing crampons or skis.
  • 2" wide, overlapping, Hook and Loop closure in front;
    - is very fast on and off.
    - avoids potential zipper complications in the future.
    - is very secure & degree of overlap can be varied to adjust fit.
  • Lined Bottom section is neat, durable and avoids problems from unravelling fabric edges or loose threads.
  • Adjustable top webbing band.
  • This gaiter pattern design uses only readily available fabric, hardware and webbing. However, additional, high-performance options are described for the extra ambitious Gaiter “Cobbler”.


What Fabrics to Use?

  • Bottom Shell - Waterproof and tough like coated Cordura.
  • Bottom Lining - Waterproof & lighter weight like coated Packcloth or Oxford.
  • Uppers - Waterproof-breathable woven fabrics or simply water repellent woven fabrics like heavy Supplex.
