Like their namesakes, Crocs have been around forever. And because they re tough as nails, they have hardly changed. The instep strap now triple barracked Bio Thane webbing, and an additional tab holds the front opening down, but otherwise they remain as they were when they first appeared. The fitted design and durable, waterproof fabrics are as effective now as ever.

    The OR Crocs are the cat's meow of gaiters. They are solidly constructed and very durable. If you're uncoordinated and constantly trip while wearing crampons (like me), these are worth their weight in gold for protecting your expensive snow pants from being shredded at the end of each trip. They are easy to put on and keep water from getting into your boots during stream crossings. There is really nothing bad I can think of to say about these - simply awesome.

    I recently used this on a cub scout outing on a night hike when I used then with my low top hiking shoes. There were spots where the snow was about 8 inches deep, my feet and legs were nice and dry throughout the hike. Didn't even notice the yucca plants on the side of the trail.

    Outdoor research makes the best gaiters period.

    Bought these for a winter pheasant hunt in South Dakota to keep dry from the knees down while walking through snow all day. These were perfect for the task. Comfortable and extremely functional. Can’t go wrong.

    Great OR product. Would recommend.

    They work perfectly

    I wear a size 14 boot. And these were everything I was looking for. Fit perfect and stayed put and is what they were spose to do

    Always had good look with these gaiters!!! Last pair I had lasted me around ten years of good hard use! Best gaiters around!!

    Great gaiters that fit snugly, stay up well and don't flap about. I've used them in knee-deep snow drifts, wet boggy moorland and shallow streams and my feet stayed warm and dry. A lot of reviews mention the difficult sizing - my boots are Scarpa SL Active EU size 46 and my gaiters are medium. After experimenting with the strap length I got them to fit perfectly (using the ninth buckle hole). The toe clip doesn't go right to the end of the boot, but I don't think it's meant to after looking at lots of other photos. It seems that the sizing refers to the width of the gaiters, and not particularly the boot size. On an American website I found this information... Gaiter Height: 16 inches / Max. Top Circumference: S: 15 inches, M: 16 inches, L: 17 inches, XL: 18 inches, XXL: 19 inches. I hope this helps other (confused) hikers!
