              I finally wore out my first pair after 10+ years of hard use. These things are great. Very easy on/off - that's one of the best parts. Sturdy. Useful all year long. I put these through some tough conditions in both the summer and winter. If I know I'm going in the field I seldom leave without these. They are nice in the winter to keep snow out and warmth in. No zippers so you don't have to worry about things freezing up. In the summer they aren't too warm and after a long day of bushwacking it's nice to have dry legs and boots and not have boots full of twigs and leaves. Don't leave home without them.

                  I purchased this gaiters after having done a fair bit of research and reading reviews. The only part I'm not happy with is the fit around the leg at the top closure. I have to fold it and use a rubber band to create a good fit and seal. I haven't used it in deep snow yet. Should I ever sink in to my knees the gaiters would fill up with snow if not using the rubber band. My shoe size is 9 and thought to take size L (8-11). I don't know whether size M would have fit better on top closure. I'm happy with the fit otherwise.

                        Is the front closure just a velcro strip or is there a zipper in there too? I'm not real impressed with some velcro straps once they get snow in there. Is there a gaiter with both?
