The Hillsound Armadillo LT gaiter was created to meet the need for high-performance and affordable gaiters for outdoor enthusiasts. The Armadillo LT is comprised of a waterproof and breathable upper made of Flexia's three-layer fabric that is contour-fitting and lightweight. This stretch fabric ensures a snug fit that won't pinch or fall down. The lower is a 1000 denier and high-density nylon, providing supreme protection from the elements. The LT boasts a waterproof rating up to 20,000mm while maintaining a excellent breathability rating of 6RET, 15.000 + g. These gaiters will keep mud, trail debris, and snow out of your socks and hiking boots. Like all Hillsound gaiters, the Armadillo LT features a YKK waterproof zipper to make it easy to get the gaiter on and off. The Armadillo LT is a solid choice for year-round hiking and snowshoeing.
Shame on me for being duped into getting these, I should've known better by the greatly reduced price tag, they will be going back when the opportunity presents itself. It's too bad, other than the cheap, plastic-like, synthetic straps, (similar to the same material that came with the cheap wrist watches growing up in the 60's), I had such high hopes for these. I wish the seller and/or Amazon would put the "Made In ___ " listed in the details more often to prevent consumers like me from wasting the time and effort, only to find out once we receive the product.
I've only used these for rides on my Harley. They are great for keeping the wind from blow up your pant leg or chaps. Makes a big difference between staying warm and having a cold wind up your pants!! They do really well on the ride even at 70+ mph, no movement or flapping around. The hook at the bottom insures they stay in place.
My husband actually bought these to use for weed whacking. He always got grass clippings in his shoes and on his socks. Now he gets no grass inside his shoes or on his socks and the gaiters clean up easily.
These look like nicely designed, well made gaiters. But I had to return them because they were way too small. I bought a large but they didn't even come close to what I needed going around my calf. I'm a tall woman, a bit overweight, and I've owned other large size gaiters from other manufacturers which were roomy for me. And this company charged me for the return, too.
They are waterproof. They do stay up nicely. I have 2 gripes. The bottom part is really wide around my boot.... even my heavy winter ones and the fastener doesn't stay on my laces because of this big gap. Needless to say snow gets in. Second is I have twice had the zipper get extremely stuck on the inner protection cuff. Last time I had to cut it out. Since I am almost 6' tall I ordered a medium. They fit fine in the calf area. Just not around the ankle.
These are great for hiking and trail running. I have worn these running through two foot deep snow and my legs dry. They are relatively breathable too so your legs don't get too hot. Easy to put on and take off once you watch one of the on-line videos and there are no problems with them slipping down.
I used these gaiters on a backcountry backpacking hunt in the mountains of Idaho and these gaiters performed extremely well and much better than any of the other gaiters my hunting partners were wearing. Very satisfied with them.
If you have large calves, be prepared to struggle putting these on. I have to feed the zipper and begin the zip up while sliding the gaiters down around my ankles. Then I have to firmly pull them up to where I want them to finish zipping them up. A bit of a pain.
This is a mixed review because when it first arrived, it was the wrong size. There must have been a mix up at the wear house , because the XL tag was attached to the xs gaiters.
Love the Hillsound Gaiter recently went hiking in Africa and they offer excellent coverage. The strap under the boot keeps the gater in place nicely as does the hook in the laces. I'm 5'8" 129 lbs, I ordered the large and they fit perfectly. They wipe clean easily with no fussing, fast drying too. Much better than those cheaper gaters which just go a bit above the ankle. For anyone who wants good coverage for bush trekking, camping, hunting, or other outdoor activities these are EXCELLENT AND WORTH THE PRICE!
Just what I was looking for. Great quality and fit perfectly true to size according to the measurements provided in the sizing chart. They will be used for hiking and snowshoeing.
Amazing fit and exactly what I needed they keep all the snow out
Water proof and easy to put on
