Reviews - Outdoor Research Expedition Crocodiles Gaiter
I have used these gaiters a bunch of time snowshoeing and they are great! They are super durable and have always kept me dry. They are designed to fit over heftier boots like mountaineering boots, so keep that in mind when picking a size. I wear a size 12 boot and got the XL gaiters which fit great on big boots. I don't have any dislikes, the buckles and straps are all very durable and will take a beating. These gaiters will last!
These gaiters have traveled with me for quite a while now, and they have done there job 100% of the time. They fit well and are comfy when hiking around wet or thorny areas.
Great Do-Everything Gaiters
The Expedition Crocodiles are the "gold standard" for functional, durable gaiters. I use them primarily for ice climbing and mountaineering, where you are more concerned about crampons puncturing your expensive outerwear pants. The Cordura all the way up the inside of the legs is a big plus in protecting your pants, and your legs from wayward crampons. I used my original Crocodiles for nearly 10 years, before I could not patch them anymore and the Velcro wore out. But I expect these new Expedition Crocodiles to last for years to come.
