Pros Inexpensive, durableBreathable, waterproof, lightLightweight, great fit, sturdy instep strapEasy on and off, instep cord is replaceableBreathable, light, good debris protection
Cons Lacks versatility, baggyNot as durable as other full-length gaitersNot very versatile, not water resistantNot versatile, instep cord wears quicklyNot waterproof, no ankle adjustment (may not fit larger ankles), Instep strap wears out
Bottom Line This mid-length gaiter goes on easily and stands up to wear and tearThese high gaiters will keep you covered in the snow and iceAn all-around all star for trail runsAn old school gaiter meant for high-ankle footwearA solid pair of gaiters for a variety of environments
