The Outdoor Research Overdrive Wrap keeps out all of the dirt and debris from footwear on trail runs and distance hikes. We love how well they fit and how easy they are to slip on and off. Whether we were pounding out the miles in the southern California desert or hoofing it through the duff of New England backcountry trails, these gaiters kept us moving, and we often times forgot we were even wearing them.
They are never going to be the gaiter that does the heavy lifting; that's just not what they were designed to do. Precipitation will have them beat any day of the week, but for keeping the crud out of your shoes while moving fast and light, these are the ones we would turn to in a flash.
