Trekmates Strap Gaiter
About this deal
The main body of the gaiter is constructed out of 15D eVENT fabric that provides waterproof and breathable protection. This gaiter is claimed to last most users one full thru-hike, and although durability is evident, this wouldn’t be my first choice for maintained trails or for trail running. The taller height did provide respite on days traveling through dense overgrowth, rain, and deep mud. However, in our experience, the top elastic circled the widest part of the calf in a way that became uncomfortable with long periods of use. As such, this is a great lightweight option for hikers traveling shorter distances, possibly with pants, and are looking for a gaiter that can be easily used with boots or low shoes.

A company best known for its traction products, Kahtoola has some compelling gaiter options. I tested the INSTAgaiter Low, an ultralight ankle gaiter intended for hiking and trail running. These feature a DWR-coated stretch nylon/polyurethane blend fabric (with four color options) that provide spectacular low-fit coverage. A side-closure YKK zipper, toggled elastic top cinch, plastic lace hook that works with D-rings, and hard plastic adjustable DuraLink instep strap are integrated to fit them securely. Kahtoola offers a 1,000-mile warranty on the DuraLink instep strap. Kate Riley These lightweight dust busters consist of three primary components. The main body of the gaiter wraps around the lower leg and upper shoe. Located to the front of the gaiter is typically a metal or plastic hook used to attach the gaiter to a stretch of shoelace on the upper foot or D-ring “gaiter loop”. Lastly, the fit is secured to the lower foot through an instep strap or heel attachment point. If you fail to return a product to us, we may make arrangements to have the product collected from you.
